Shelly Sterling

Concern Over Escape Clause

In Ballmer Deal

Shelly Sterling looked confident as she left a Bev Hills restaurant swinging a Victoria's Secret bag Tuesday, but behind the scenes there's concern that Donald's latest flip-flop could blow up her $2 billion deal to sell the Los Angeles Clippers.

We've learned there's an escape clause in her deal with Ballmer, which gives him the right to nix the deal if she doesn't have clear authority to sell the team.

So Shelly's legal team will try to shut down Sterling by telling the judge there can be no argument ... Donald is "incapacitated" and therefore he has no voice anymore in the team's business.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Donald signed a document with Shelly late last year, in which they both agreed if 2 neurologists determined either one of them was incapacitated, then that person would automatically lose control of the team.

As we reported ... 2 neurologists made that finding early last month -- that Donald had lost it.  

Don't expect a decision Wednesday.  We're told a date for a full-blown hearing will be set ... probably in the next week or so. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

The only thing Shelly should do with the VS bag is drive over to good ole Donny's place and beat some sense into him with it. Dumbass continuing this Klipper's drama.

PS: If nothing else, Donny might like some VS clothing, I hear he looks fabulous in VS g-strings :)

Have the "famous in 12" take him out and then she won't have any thing to worry about. They all will be gone.

She's looking for that multi billion dollar payday to pay for that plastic surgery overhaul so she'll have something to put that VS gear on.

I hope the NBA sues Donald for 2B so he doesn't get a penny from the sell.

I know she gets her freak on but I feel sorry for the guy who has to close his eyes and imagine someone else.

Imagine if this deal falls through and the team sells later for a lot less. One can only hope.
