V. Stiviano’s Net Worth Impacted by Legal Entanglements with Donald Sterling

V. Stiviano’s luxurious lifestyle included living in a $1.8 million condo in an upscale L.A. neighborhood.

Former assistant V. Stiviano, who gained notoriety during the Donald Sterling case, has an estimated net worth of around $3 million. However, the lawsuits and the requirement to return gifts have undoubtedly influenced her current financial status.

V. Stiviano, originally born Maria Vanessa Perez, was born in October 1982 in Los Angeles.

She is notably recognized for her involvement in the 2014 legal case with former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

Stiviano recorded Sterling making racist comments, which were later released to the media. However, she defended herself, stating that she didn’t personally leak the audio clip.

In the leaked audio recording, Sterling asked Stiviano not to associate with Black people publicly. This led to Sterling receiving a lifetime ban from the NBA and being forced to sell the Clippers franchise.

The true story behind this case, relationship, and subsequent fallout is chronicled in the new series Clipped.

The cast includes Ed O’Neill as Sterling, Jacki Weaver as Shelly, and Cleopatra Coleman as V. Stiviano.

V. Stiviano’s Chaotic Affair and Legal Battles with Donald Sterling Influenced Her Net Worth

Once estimated to be higher, V. Stiviano’s net worth declined to an estimated $3 million following the legal battle initiated by Donald’s wife, Rochelle Sterling.

However, this figure is a conservative estimate and may not account for all the financial backlash stemming from her legal battles with Sterling.

Donald Sterling and V. Stiviano, allegedly known as his mistress and assistant, met at a Super Bowl party in 2010.

They develop a close relationship, and Stiviano eventually works for Sterling and receives gifts from him.

However, it’s important to note that Stiviano has stated that she and Sterling were never intimate.

As for the gift, Sterling gave Stiviano several extravagant items during their time together. This includes a Ferrari, Bentley, Range Rover, and the majority share of a 1.8 million duplex near Beverly Hills.

These gifts became a point of statement during the legal battles that followed the cases, including Sterling.

V. Stiviano’s Financial Standing Takes a Hit Amid Lawsuit Filed by Rochelle, Donald Sterling’s Wife

Stiviano faced a lawsuit filed by Sterling’s wife, Rochelle “Shelly” Sterling, accusing her of targeting Sterling to receive gifts and property.

However, she lost the lawsuit and had to return her $1.8 million-worth duplex, $800,000 in cash, and luxury cars, including a Ferrari, received from Sterling.

Following the legal cases, a Los Angeles judge ordered that Stiviano return $2.6 million worth of property to Shelly.

While Stiviano’s involvement in the scandal had legal repercussions, her net worth remains relatively stable.

Despite the infamy, she reportedly finalized the adoption of two boys (aged twelve and thirteen) after serving as their foster parent for years.

The adoption process was completed amidst the public attention she received during the Donald Sterling cases.

These events occurred some years ago, and since then, Stiviano has led a more private life.
