Disgraced LA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Battling Cancer

In an exclusive interview with DuJour magazine, disgraced Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling implied that his ex-mistress had been blackmailing him. “I wish I had just paid her off,” he said.

Vanessa Stiviano, aka V. Stiviano, leaked audio of Sterling telling her not to bring black men to his games. The audio, which was published by gossip tabloid TMZ.com, sparked a firestorm of controversy resulting in Sterling’s lifetime ban from the NBA and a $2.5 million fine.

Floyd Mayweather at the groundbreaking for the new the Las Vegas Arena

AEG and MGM Resorts International tapped boxer Floyd Mayweather to help them break ground at a ceremonial VIP/media event for the new 20,000-seat sports and entertainment venue which will be located near the heart of the famed Las Vegas Strip and adjacent to the I-15 corridor. Mayweather continued his vendetta against his ex-gf Shantel Jackson, who had the good sense to move on with her life after she broke up with him. After posting a ultrasound of their allegedly aborted twins, Floyd posted a pre-surgery photo of Shantel on his Twitter page. Shantel’s current cash register boyfriend, Nelly, responded with a tweet of his own.

Shantel Jackson and Nelly

…that she is not messing around with a married man.

Boxer Floyd Mayweather‘s ex-concubine Shantel Jackson created quite a buzz on social media when she posted a photo of herself posing alongside NBA legend and team owner Michael Jordan. Jackson’s followers immediately surmised — rather crudely — that Jordan’s right hand was palming her rather ample buttocks. In his left hand he clutched a wad of cash.

The photo is wholly inappropriate as Mr. Jordan is a married man whose wife, Yvette Prieto, recently welcomed twin girls.

Reaction to Donald Sterling's Ban for Life from the NBA

The reaction to LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling‘s lifetime ban from the NBA was swift. NAB Commissioner Adam Silver, left, made the announcement earlier today during a live press conference.

In audio obtained by gossip tabloid TMZ.com, Sterling told his biracial girlfriend, Vanessa Stiviano, not to bring black men to his games — including NBA legend Magic Johnson, with whom Stiviano had posed for an Instagram photo.

NBA stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and former great Magic Johnson posted their sentiments on their official Twitter accounts in the moments after the announcement.

LeBron thanked Silver for “protecting our beautiful and powerful league.”

And Johnson tweeted, “Commissioner Silver showed great leadership in banning LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life.”

SOme NBA players say they are not completely satisfied with the league’s decision. They want the NBA board of governors to hold “an immediate vote” forcing Sterling to sell the Clippers team.

But a friend who spoke with Sterling today said he did not express a desire to sell the team at this time.

See more reactions after the break.
