She's sooooo strange! And we're kinda obsessed with her...
Even though V. Stiviano has consistently been covering her face with a visor since the Donald Sterling scandal broke, the attention she's been getting from the press hasn't stopped her from going about her daily business!
V. left her Los Angeles home on Wednesday morning, and while she wouldn't comment on her relationship with Donald Sterling, she did tell photographers camped outside her residence to "have a beautiful day." Between her gracious words and somewhat conservative black dress, she's not a total weirdo ... but then how do you explain the roller skating session she had yesterday afternoon with her bodyguard? And just who is she?!
V. was born Maria Vanessa Perez in San Antonio, Texas, and after growing up with little money, she moved to Los Angeles with the hope of making it as a model. She never got on the cover of Vogue, but apparently she had no problem meeting rich men, as she was also linked to late Lakers owner Jerry Buss! At some point she got involved with Sterling, and in 2011, she was listed as a director of the Donald T. Sterling Charitable Foundation, according to the LA Times.
And speaking of charity, apparently Sterling gave Stiviano a $1.8 million condo, two Bentleys, a Ferrari and a Range Rover, all of which ruffled the feathers of Sterling's wife Rochelle. Last month Rochelle filed a lawsuit accusing Stiviano of having an affair with Donald, and she also accused her husband of using the couple's money to buy Stiviano her home and cars, which was not something she consented to. Stiviano's lawyer fired back that this wasn't Sterling's "first rodeo" and that Rochelle knew about her husband's adulterous ways for years and even accused her of being his "enabler."
Between this and V. allegedly leaking a recording of Sterling's racist remarks, there's more drama than an episode of Real Housewives! But when will the visor come off?! We wanna see more of the lady on the left!
