V. Stiviano has reportedly filed new documents in her legal battle with Donald Sterling’s wife, Shelly, claiming the former Los Angeles Clippers owner is gay and he paid her to pretend to be his mistress.

According to TMZ, Stiviano argues that Sterling gave her gifts in exchange for being his “beard” – a person of the opposite sex paid to date someone in order to conceal their homosexuality – and the two never had sex.

The documents also apparently state Sterling’s wife was “acutely aware of (Donald’s) sexual orientation” and approved of his gifts to Stiviano, which were his personal property.

Shelly Sterling is suing Stiviano over the allegedly unauthorized transfer of property – cash, cars and land – from Donald Sterling.

Stiviano is countersuing for defamation, claiming she has been slandered in the media. TMZ reports she is seeking no less than $10 million.
