“I Think Donald Has Onset of Dementia” Racist NBA Boss’ Wife Breaks Her Silence

(BlackMediaScoop) Shelly Sterling says she may eventually divorce Donald Sterling and will fight efforts to force her to sell her share of the L.A. Clippers.

In an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, Shelly Sterling also suggested Donald Sterling is suffering from dementia, which she said could explain comments caught on tape in which he reportedly tells his jumpoff not to associate with black people.

Sterling told Walters her husband said, “I don’t remember saying that. I don’t remember ever saying those things,” after hearing the audiotape of him telling V. Stiviano not to promote her relationship with black people and not to bring them to Los Angeles Clippers games.

“I said, ‘Well, this is the tape.’ And he says, ‘Hmm. I don’t remember it,'” she added. “That’s when I thought he had dementia.”

She said she never heard him say derogatory things toward black or Hispanic people before she heard the tape, but she did not blame the incident on dementia.

Sterling, herself accused of making inflammatory remarks toward other races in the past, said she’s never said any racist remarks either.

“I’m not a racist,” she said. “I’ve never been a racist.”

Sterling said that if the NBA tries to force her to sell her half of the Clippers, she would “absolutely” fight to keep her stake in the team.

Walters questioned whether Sterling plans to file for divorce from her estranged husband.

“For the last 20 years, I’ve been seeing attorneys for a divorce,” she said, laughing. “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 advisor and my attorney said to me, ‘Not now.'”

Shelly Sterling added that she thinks the stalling of the divorce stems from “financial arrangements.”

But she said, “Eventually, I’m going to.”
