Donald Sterling

Woman on Tape

Won't Cooperate with NBA

4/26/2014 6:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0426_v_stiviano_instagramThe woman you hear talking to Donald Sterling during a taped conversation in which he makes racist remarks will NOT cooperate with the NBA Commissioner's investigation ... and we've learned her refusal has nothing to do with the tape.

A rep from the law office representing V. Stiviano tells TMZ ... they heard NBA Commissioner Adam Silver state his intention to interview Stiviano, but that's not going to happen right now.  We're told her lawyer, Mac Nehoray, will not allow her to answer questions about pending litigation against his client filed by Sterling's estranged wife.

Shelly Sterling claims in her lawsuit Stiviano embezzled $1.8 million by scheming to get as much as she could from an old man -- Donald Sterling.  Stiviano claims everything she got was a gift.

Nehoray says her refusal to talk to the Commish has nothing to do with the audio tape ... he believes talking to Silver would get in the way of her defense in the lawsuit.

We're told Silver will have to agree to some major limitations in questioning ... before his client would talk.  But we're told that won't happen anytime soon. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

That is because this slime bag wants the embezzlement charges dropped and more money on top of it...plus she would have to turn over the tape which will be easily exposed as a doctored phony.

The estranged wife is jealous that her estranged husband bought this young woman gifts of jewelry and cars. She thinks the woman must have embezzled it but the truth is that Sterling probably bought all of it to win her affection. Not the young woman's fault!

Clippers can't win. They are being set up so the Lakers remain the only successful team in LA. Phil Jackson called Kobe a ni**er many times. How come this is all revealed now that the Clippers are successful? I bet the conversation is months old. Just wondering.
