Donald Sterling to GF:

How Can We Make This Go Away?

4/28/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Sterling Girlfriend Recording
Donald Sterling
contacted his ex-girlfriend Sunday and asked her flatly, "How can we make this go away?" ... sources connected with Sterling tell TMZ Sports

Our sources say ... Sterling is keenly aware V. Stiviano is in possession of more than 100 hours of recordings ... some of which are extremely damaging to Sterling's reputation. 

Our sources say Stiviano told Sterling to call her lawyer ... and thereby opened the door to settlement discussions.  It's obvious the incentive for Sterling is to make sure the rest of the tapes never see the light of day. 

TMZ Sports contacted Stiviano's lawyer Mac E. Nehoray ... who had no comment.

We know Stiviano is extremely upset that the Clippers and Donald Sterling publicly embraced a lawsuit filed by Sterling's wife Shelly against Stivianio, claiming she stole $1.8 million from Donald.

As for why Stiviano taped so many conversations ... as TMZ Sports reported, she told friends the Clippers owner WANTED her to record him and he knew he was being recorded ... partly because he frequently forgot what he said and the tapes refreshed his memory ... at least that's her story.

And this is interesting ... on Stiviano's Instagram page, she constantly tagged photos with "#RandomHouse" and "#Simon&Schuster" ... both large book publishing companies. 

Sources connected with Stiviano tell us ... she IS in the process of writing a book "about life" -- but she insists it is not about Sterling.

5 years ago, I was listening to ESPN radio and they were talking about how Sterling didn't like minorities in his complexes and individuals were suing him for that. It's been a long time coming for this guy, and I'm not a PC guy, but a man in his position who has made millions and millions off African Americans and their community should never bite the hand that fed him.

It seems like she released the tapes to make money. I mean, she's a young woman with an old, grandpa for a boyfriend...plus he's very rich. She taped him to make money and maybe yes, to not lose the gifts grandpa here has given her. He is still racist and she played the game well. She should write a book on Goldigging 101. Once they settle this she will go away and not say another word.

Money = Power. There's not much anyone can do to him actually. NBA can fine him $1 million. That's chump change for him. He spends $1 mil+ per game on salary & costs.

TMZ's always trying to take down people they can't touch, lol. It's kind of pointless. Just accept it, some people are racist. There's nothing you can do about it.

For the black folks out there, stop complaining. Focus on education for your next generation. Let this be a wake up call rather than just another opportunity to complain and cry foul. Education leads to sucess and power.

No, being very good at shooting a basketball or running 100 meters 0.0001 seconds faster will not earn you respect. Blacks as a community needs to rise up, educate themselves, and earn that respect through hard work and real skills. Forget affirmative action, earn your place in this society. That's the real answer. Let this be a learning experience and an encouragement for us all to better ourselves and earn the respect of one another.

Owwie, this is gonna' hurt the old fart Sterling! I don't think it's fair if the tapes are destroyed just because he can afford to buy them off her. Oh well. We all can think the worst, if we're so inclined. I don't even WANT to hear more of his garbage, what I heard on the 10 minute tape was all I needed to know what he is. Duly noted, too. As for the hooker/extortionist, she is an opportunist, greedy, back-stabbing USER.... er, leech is probably more precise. However, I still say bigotry and racism is a worse assault on humanity as a whole. Both of them play dirty, so they deserve whatever bad outcomes they get.

Honestly, she's pretty much just as disgusting of a human being as he is. Total gold digging blackmailing ugly skank. Maybe she'll use some of that money of her incredibly ugly face.

Can the girlfriend be charged with extortion?
I feel bad for the team. Can Sterling's wife buy him out some way.

The girlfriend planned to extort him all along, otherwise why was she taping him. What else can she have taped him than would be worse than we already heard. Sterling should just give his wife & children.
