His wife wants to keep her 50% ownership of the Clippers, and she said she has been seeing lawyers for TWENTY YEARS about filing for a divorce.. I mean, 20 years thinking about it?
"I will fight that decision," Shelly Sterling said in the interview.
"To be honest with you, I'm wondering if a wife of one of the owners,
and there's 30 owners, did something like that, said those racial slurs,
would they oust the husband? Or would they leave the husband in?
"I don't know why I should be punished for what his actions were."
"Shelly Sterling will fight to retain her 50 percent ownership stake in the team.
also said that she "eventually" will divorce her husband, and that she
hadn't yet done so due to financial considerations.
"For the last
20 years, I've been seeing attorneys for a divorce," she said. "In fact,
I have here - I just filed - I was going to file the petition. I signed
the petition for a divorce. And it came to almost being filed. And
then, my financial adviser and my attorney said to me, 'Not now.'"
