Even though Donald Sterling had a very public affair, technically he is still married to his wife Shelly. They have been separated for a long time, but it looks like the divorce is coming.
According to TMZ, Mrs. Sterling has hired top divorce attorney Laura Wasser to represent her and she just released this statement.
Shelly Sterling says “Our family is devastated by the racist comments made by my estranged husband. My children and I do not share these despicable views or prejudices.”
Shelly goes on … We will not let one man’s small-mindedness poison the spirit of the fans and accomplishments of the team in the city we love.”
And Shelly says, “We are doing everything in our power to stand by and support our Clippers team.”
