Jerry Buss

Told VERY Young GF

KEEP QUIET!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0328-jerry-buss-delia-tmzThe woman who scored an expensive condo, Bentley AND MORE from deceased L.A. Lakers owner Jerry Buss had clear instructions from the mogul -- KEEP QUIET about the relationship.

Delia Cortez tells TMZ ... she started dating Jerry "years ago" when she lived in Marina del Rey, CA ... a beachside community in L.A.. When the relationship got hot and heavy, she says Jerry moved her to Honolulu, Hawaii to keep things on the down low, and bought her a condo and a 2009 convertible Bentley.  

Delia, who's in her late 20s, says she knew all along ... Jerry, who died at 80, had multiple, young girlfriends. Jerry was famously a player in L.A., but Delia says she was his #1. Delia ungenerously added, "The others were just slutty arm candy."

Delia tells TMZ ... in addition to giving her the condo and the Bentley in his will, Jerry also left her a large amount of money, though she would not disclose the amount and how she got it -- through the will or otherwise.

Delia says Jerry secured her future and says she loved him.

You guys are calling her a gold digger? Like he was a victim of her cunning? Come on guys. This man was very shrewd, very smart. You seriously believe that this was just a sad old man that was getting manipulated by a pretty little con artist? He knew he was only able to pull 20 year old tail, because he was loaded. He was 100% aware of what was going on, and probably enjoyed every second of it.

No doubt there was money for the other "arm candy" but just not publicized I think she is kind of ugly and too old, for all she knows there may be a richer, prettier, younger girl out there...who Jerry kept local cause he liked her more...don't assume anything!!!

Sounds like they did love each other. They also knew what they were getting out of their relationship. It's not something I could do but I don't expect everyone to live as I do.
