Donald Sterling

'I Wish I Had Just Paid Her Off'

5/2/2014 2:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Sterling has finally broken his silence ... telling an L.A. magazine, "I wish I had just paid her off."

The disgraced L.A. Clippers owner made the comment about V. Stiviano to DuJour Magazine.  

The mag claims Sterling is not done talking -- and has already lined up interviews with Barbara Walters and the NBA. Though it's unclear when he plans to talk to them. 

As for the comment itself -- it just shows that he doesn't think he's racist or said anything wrong ... and the only thing he seemingly regrets is that the audio got out.

Sterling accounted for any racist behavior in his lawsuits on housing. What does the recording have to do with owning the clippers? If anything the NBA is racist because 88% percent of the players are black . I don't see any affirmative action hiring going on there.

if she recorded him due to memory loss, old age & etc doesn't that prove he is not of sound mind. which also means any verbal contract that was made can be voided since he was not of sound mind. I assume that the gifts he gave to her can/would be returned to him & his wife in a court of law. She took advantage of a poor elderly man who is not of sound mind (I'm being sarcastic but it could hold up in court)

After what happened to Mel Gibson, you'd think he been smarter. Guess not. \
But he was right --not to submit to the demands of a blackmailer.

I would've given her a dime--no matter the consequences.

The context of their conversation is being left out. Sterling found out that she liked banging purple greg on the side and asked her to not bring any onto his turf.
