Donald Sterling's Wife

My Husband's Despicable and Prejudiced

4/27/2014 6:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0427-donald-and-shelly-sterling
Donald Sterling'
s wife came out swinging ... saying she does NOT share the racist views of her husband.

Shelly Sterling says "Our family is devastated by the racist comments made by my estranged husband.  My children and I do not share these despicable views or prejudices."

Shelly goes on ... "We will not let one man's small-mindedness poison the spirit of the fans and accomplishments of the team in the city we love."

And Shelly says, "We are doing everything in our power to stand by and support our Clippers team."

Shelly was at Sunday's playoff game and is flying back with the team tonight.  Donald, on the other hand, was persona non grata at the game.

It's worth noting ... Shelly has been estranged from Donald for years.  She retained attorney Laura Wasser several months ago to file a civil lawsuit against Donald's GF V. Stiviano.  Wasser is a top divorce lawyer, so it seems divorce is imminent.

We're told the last straw in the marriage was when Donald and Shelly's adult son died of an overdose more than a year ago, and Shelly felt he was more interested in Stiviano than grieving with the family.

Dang, TMZ is all up this guy's azz. I loved the Obama comments the best. Just like when he paused to chide MSNBC when they made fun of Romney's black grandson. Oh no...wait... he didn't say anything about that...:)

I want to know how exactly anyone could take the team he owns away from him? Just curious how that works.

When are white people going to learn they can't voice their opinions they might as well from their own little society or something

and don't forget about the stuff Donald said about the Jewish vs black Jewish that Harvey Levin conveniently clipped out of the original phone audio that Deadspin released Sunday.

Wow ...    

Sorry, but she has been married to him for a long time. He didn't become racist in the last few years.

Can you all imagine if everything you ever said had been secretly recorded and put on blast for the public to hear. Not sure if they guy is actually a racist. His comments are definitely offensive and do deserve to examined. I think the hysteria is becoming a bit out of control though. All these ignorant rappers talking about killing people and raping women and calling white people crackers, their outrage is the best. Give me an f'n break, hypocrites. And all the usual suspects jumping on the race card train, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, President Obama, they thrive on this nonsense because that gives them something to do. In their minds, we're still in Jim Crowe South. They're confused though because most rational people have moved on and do not agree with this idiot's comments. Obama is the most pathetic for commenting on this. He is the President of the United States. Over in Malaysia, he stopped to comment on this. It's beneath the Office of the Presidency. But then again, so is he.

I think she already knew he was like that just didn't expect him to get recorded saying it. Now she's trying to disassociate herself.

So sick of this f***ing story.
An old rich white guy is racist. Is it really that shocking?
The 12 year old girl bloggers that TMZ hires for its writing staff needs to find something new to write about.
