Despite the fact he called her a "pig" in open court ... despite the fact he's STILL suing her ... Donald Sterling got together with estranged wife Shelly to celebrate their 60th anniversary on the beach ... and TMZ Sports has the shocking photo.
The two put their insanely nasty war on hold last weekend -- and bathed their bodies in the sun at the Balboa Bay resort in Newport Beach.
Multiple sources connected to the couple tell us they decided to get together to celebrate their 60th anniversary ... but they still consider themselves very much estranged.
As one source put it, "It looks weird from the outside ... but it's just the way they are."
Sure, Donald trashed the hell out of Shelly for the past couple of months ... but at the end of the day, his bank account is up $2 BILLION.
Can't stay mad at that forever.
On Emmys Red Carpet
8/26/2014 6:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Bosh has struck again.
For some reason (we're still trying to figure this out) the Heat star decided to attend the Emmys with his wife last night ... and decided to amuse himself by photobombing one of the most famous actors in the world, Matt McConaughey.
Of course, Bosh is somewhat of a photobombing pro ... the guy targeted teammates during post-game interviews almost every week last season.
But don't worry, Bosh showed off his fancy side too -- showing off his white jacket (with a white Rolls to match) before the awards.
I'm NEVER Acting Again
Especially After 'Thunderstruck'
8/25/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Durant has sworn off acting forever -- telling TMZ Sports even Shaq's critically-panned movie "Kazaam" was WAYYYY better than his 2012 flop "Thunderstruck."
Gotta respect the honesty.
Here's the deal ... Durant was leaving Benihana in Bev Hills (delicious hibachi shrimp btw) ... when we asked if he was ever gonna try to rebound from the debacle that was "Thunderstruck."
For the record -- "Thunderstruck" (like "Freaky Friday" with basketball powers) -- was a box office disaster ($587,211 domestic) ... especially compared to Shaq's 1996 classic ($18,937,262).
We also asked KD about the rumors he was trying to get out of his Nike contract -- but Durant was a little less forthcoming.
All in all a fun clip -- check out the video.
2 NBA STARS AT NIGHTCLUB
Around Time of Shooting
8/24/2014 7:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Two NBA superstars were at 1Oak nightclub right around the time Suge Knight was shot in a Hollywood nightclub early Sunday morning -- and TMZ Sports has the video.
Our photogs were rollin' as Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee and L.A. Clippers star Glen "Big Baby" Davis walked up to the nightclub around 11:45 PM Saturday night ... just like any other night.
Big Baby got inside ... but the line proved to be too much for McGee and he decided to leave. Might have been the best decision he made all night.
Because 90 minutes later, gunshots rang out -- and as TMZ first reported, Suge Knight was shot multiple times.
Unclear if Davis was still in the club at the time of the shooting -- but we're guessing he was, since 1Oak was the place to be Saturday night ... with huge stars like Chris Brown, Tyson Beckford and more hanging inside the Sunset Strip club.
We're reaching out to try and get as much info as we can.
Stay tuned ...
V. Stiviano Lawsuit
Donald Sterling Is Gay
... I Was a 'Beard'
8/21/2014 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
V. Stiviano has just filed new legal docs in her war with Shelly Sterling -- claiming she NEVER slept with Donald Sterling ... 'cause he's into men and she was his beard.
TMZ Sports has obtained the lawsuit -- which Stiviano filed in response to Shelly's allegations that V. accepted cars and property from Donald that he didn't have the authority to give her.
In the new docs, Stiviano argues that the items in question were given to her in exchange for being Donald's "beard" -- and she insists Shelly knew about it.
Stiviano states ... she was "not ever a sexual partner of Donald T. Sterling" and "believes that [Sterling] is a homosexual and enjoys sexual acts and or sexual congress with males."
In the legal doc, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Stiviano says Shelly was "acutely aware of [Donald's] sexual orientation and condoned same as well as acknowledged and approved [Donald's] gifts of money [to Stiviano]."
Stiviano also says the gifts she received were NOT community property -- but rather Donald's separate property.
Stiviano is also suing Shelly and Donald for defamation -- claiming they slandered her in the media by calling her a thief and saying she embezzled money and property from Donald. She's demanding no less than $10 MILLION.
We reached out to Donald's camp -- so far, no word back.
Story developing ...
Magic and Doc
Hit Baseball Game with New Clips Owner
8/20/2014 6:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Here's a photo of the new L.A. Clippers owner in a public photo with TWO black people.
Take THAT Donald Sterling!
Steve Ballmer hit up the L.A. Dodgers game with Magic Johnson and Clippers President Doc Rivers last night.
It's interesting ... considering it was a photo featuring Magic Johnson that led to Donald Sterling's downfall ... when he blasted V. Stiviano for posting a photo of Magic on social media.
In audio posted on TMZ Sports, Sterling screamed at Stiviano for being seen in public with black guys and told her not to bring any black people to his games.
Earlier this week, Sterling himself admitted -- "I'm finished. I'm over."
My Shaq Impression
8/20/2014 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Turns out, the "Inside the NBA" host can do one helluva "Shaq" -- nailing his co-host during an event for the NBA2K15 video game ... and it was all caught on video.
Johnson was talking about how he and Shaq would work together on some motion capture stuff for the game -- when he seamlessly dropped one of the best Shaq impressions we've heard ... maybe ever.
OK, he's no Aries Spears ... but not bad for an amateur [WARNING -- the Spears clip has some explicit language].
Still Rockin' Celtics Gear
... After Trade to Wizards
8/19/2014 9:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Here's a question -- if an NBA team trades you away to another squad after one season, do you still rock their gear out in public?
Ya do if you're Kris Humphries.
Kim Kardashian's ex-husband was out in L.A. sportin' his Celtics sweat pants yesterday -- despite the fact the team shipped him out to the Washington Wizards back in July.
Kris didn't seem too bothered by the issue when our guy asked him about the fashion decision -- but people like Allen Iverson got crushed when he rocked another team's gear out in public while he was playing for the 76ers.
More recently, 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick took all sorts of heat for rockin' a Miami Dolphins hat.
So, was Kris out of line ... or just out of clean clothes?
Chicago Can Be Cold
8/19/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dwyane Wade reportedly makes around $30 million a year -- his estimated worth is approximately $100 mil -- which makes it pretty shocking his $1.2 million Chicago pad is in foreclosure.
According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ Sports -- Wade stopped making payments on the $225K mortgage ... the docs don't say how much he's behind.
The house is located in South Holland, a Chicago suburb. It's massive -- 7,800 square feet, 6 bedrooms and a basketball court on 3 acres.
Dwyane and then wife Siohvaughn lived in the house with their 2 kids until he filed for divorce in 2007. The divorce was extremely bitter ... he ended up getting custody. She lives in the house alone.
Dwyane's attorney tells TMZ ... the basketball star finally reached a financial settlement with his ex-wife last year, and in addition to getting a huge payout, she got the home and assumed the mortgage payments. The attorney says Siohvaughn just stopped paying.
The lawyer adds Dwyane has no further responsibility, but it seems likely he signed the mortgage papers in the first place so, as they say, tell it to the bank.
The bank sent the foreclosure notice August 11.
... I'M OVER!'
8/18/2014 6:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
For the first time in months, Donald Sterling seems to have his feet planted firmly in reality -- with the ousted Clippers owner telling TMZ Sports, "I'm finished. I'm over."
Sterling was out in Beverly Hills over the weekend when our photog walked up to him and ask about the latest with the Clippers saga -- and that's when Donald shooed our guy away saying, "I'm finished. I'm over."
It's an interesting comment -- considering on Wednesday, the judge denied Donald's last-ditch effort to block the sale of the Clips to Steve Ballmer.
In short -- he's finished. He's over.
NBA Player Stephen Jackson
Ferguson Cop Dreamed of Killing a Black Man
8/16/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Stephen Jackson has no doubt the deadly shooting of Michael Brown was the heinous action of a cop who harbored racist feelings and waited for the opportunity to kill a Black man.
Jackson, a 14-year NBA vet known for his community activism ... tells TMZ Sports the eyewitness accounts he's heard lead him to believe 18-year-old Brown's death at the hands of Ferguson PD officer Darren Wilson was fueled by race.
"You gotta be walking around holding on to that inside you. It had to be a dream of his to kill a Black man. Especially considering the head shots they say he fired."
Jackson says he's not surprised by the rioting because ... "When you lose someone like that it just reminds you of all the other people that you lost to this type of stuff."
He added ... the one positive he's observed is that it's not only Black people protesting. As Jackson sees it ... injustice is injustice, "It doesn't matter what race people are, they are going to react.”
Flies Wife to Greece ...
Reveals New Baby Name
8/15/2014 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
And then LBJ dropped the baby bombshell, saying ... "Zhuri hurry up and get here so your daddy and 2 brothers can annoy you! Lol."
LeBron James just stepped up his push gift game -- flying his wife to Greece before she gives birth to their first baby girl ... and, in the process, he unveiled what the baby's name will be.
LeBron posted a pic of himself and Savannah chilling on a yacht with the caption, "Mykonos Greece is spectacular! Push gift to my wife @mrs_savannahrj!"
So, it sounds like her name will be ... ZHURI -- unless he just wanted to see how it sounds.
We did a little research, and could only find it spelled without the 'h.' The name Zuri is Swahili for beautiful.
Thank God ... not another Britney.
Sued For NBA Party Tardiness
$50K Payday At Stake
8/14/2014 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nicki Minaj is being sued because time is money -- and NBA All-Star party promoters say she took $50,000 to make a one hour appearance, but came late and left early.
According to the court docs ... Nicki was supposed to appear at Siren Studios in Hollywood during the 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend in L.A.. Lil Wayne, Drake, and Trey Songz were also slated to be there.
Nicki's contract said she would attend -- not perform -- from 12 AM to 1 AM. But in the suit, promoters say she didn't get there until after 1:30 and took off before 2 AM.
Now they want their $50K back, and then some to cover the cost of her hotel arrangements and other lost revenue.
