Gumbumper.com has learned, Donald Sterling side chick, V Stiviano, has been receiving death threats.
V started getting death threats almost immediately after Sterling’s racist rants — which she recorded — were made public,” a source told Radar. “Most of the threats were made on social media, and this is one of the reasons why she has scaled back her activity. It has been very scary for V, and she also hired a bodyguard.”
Stiviano is reportedly being sued by Sterling’s estranged wife Rochelle “Shelly” Stein for allegedly embezzling $1.8 million of Shelly and Sterling’s money during the four years she has been working for the billionaire. She reportedly met him at the 2010 Super Bowl.
Backlash stemming from Sterling’s racist rant prompted a number of Clippers’ sponsors to pull out and has led to other legal and financial problems.
In the audio, Stiviano and Sterling appear to be arguing over a now deleted photo the socialite posted on social networking site Instagram of herself alongside NBA legend Magic Johnson. At one point he makes a disturbing request that Stiviano, who is of black and Mexican descent, stop “associating with black people” in public.
“The remainder of the audiotapes are in a secure and safe location,” the source continued. “V has also been in contact with a counselor to deal with the stress of the fallout of the scandal.”
