Donald Sterling Doesn't Like Christians Either
The Daily Mail has more on the very dark side of LA Clippers' owner Donald Sterling. The British tabloid shares details from an interview childhood friends of Sterling's late son, Scott, in which they describe an even darker side of the man banned by the NBA after his racist rant against African-Americans during a secretly-recorded conversation he had with his young mistress, V. Stiviano, was published by TMZ. Phillip Scheid and his sister, Cheryl, describe Sterling as being physically abusive towards his children, particularly his late son, Scott, who died of a drug overdose last year. Scott, whose life later spun out of control, once got into a fight with Phillip and shot him 12 times but was never charged with a crime. Cheryl is permanently disabled from a fall she suffered from a three-story window at a party where she was drugged and Scott was dealing drugs. The Scheids describe scenes of Sterling frequently parading around his home buck naked in front of the children, the maid and family friends and how he frequently beat his son with a belt for trivial transgressions. Sterling once asked asked Cheryl, who was 15 at the time, to strip off her bikini and swim naked in his pool. The Scheids say Sterling frequently hosted parties at his Malibu mansion where cheerleaders for the Clippers were invited to party poolside with him, though not any of his NBA players, while his wife was inside their home. They say Sterling frequently spewed racist comments around his children when they were visiting their home about blacks. They quote Sterling, who is Jewish, calling Christians "stupid" because "they don't know how to make money." I'm sure the Indiana Pacers' billionaire Herb Simon must think the same of folks in Indianapolis after our city officials were stupid enough to give him more than $200 million of our public tax dollars for his NBA franchise while he and his trophy wife, Bui, live the life of luxury jetting between their various multi-million dollar mansions in their private jet.
