V. Stiviano sits down for her first interview since her conversation with Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, in which he said some racist remarks, was leaked to the press.
She was asked if she thinks he should apologize for his remarks and she responded, “Yes. Absolutely.”
“I think he’s highly more traumatized and hurt by the things that he said himself,” she added. “I think he can’t even believe or understand sometimes the thing he says, and I think he’s hurt by it. He’s hurting right now.”
V. said that she does not have romantic relationship with Donald and only loves him “like a father figure.”
“I think Mr. Sterling is from a different generation than I am. I think he was brought up to believe these things … segregation, whites and blacks,” she said. “But through his actions he’s shown that he’s not a racist. He’s shown to be a very generous and kind man.”
