Who's the victim here?
Yes, the wife who left is angry and is suing him,. How many marriages like this in LA end up in the Courts? My hunch, many!
I am certainly sympathetic to her stated claims as explained in the Wrap online news service, but may I ask if she hired a private eye to spy on him?
She certainly had someone to compile a lot of detailed information in a well-crafted complaint as summarized by the Wrap:
"Rochelle Sterling, Donald's estranged wife, filed a lawsuit on March 7 alleging that V. Stiviano (aka Vanessa Maria Perez, aka Monica Gallegos, aka Maria Monica Perez Gallegos, aka Maria Valdez) was only in a relationship with her husband to squeeze him for more than than $2.5 million in cars, property and cash from accounts that Rochelle and Donald shared.
"[C]ommencing in or about 2010 and to the present date, D. Sterling regularly provided community property funds to Defendant Stiviano that were used to pay for her upkeep and living expenses, believed to be an amount of not less than $240,000," the lawsuit reads.
The suit also alleges Donald Sterling bought a Ferrari, two Bentleys, and a Range Rover for his girlfriend, which are worth a total of more than $500,000. In 2013, Rochelle says in the lawsuit, Donald Sterling gave Stiviano $1.8 million to buy a Beverly Hills duplex."
How does Stiviano respond? Did anyone ask her?
In my reading, Sterling was was more a sexist/lonely old man who felt humiliated by his young mistress and feared embarrassment. He tried to control an uncontrollable situation. There are no rules in that game. You can image that his friends, if he has any, share his backward attitudes.
