Donald Sterling sure knows how to pick ’em.
The personal confidant; alleged side-piece of the newly outed racist Los Angeles Clippers owner has a past that doesn’t align with the angelic presence she recently tried to sell Barbara Walters.
V. Stiviano — who is currently under investigation for extortion — is no stranger to the criminal justice system. She’s been arrested for at least 4 crimes and has used 5 aliases, and she’s a true chameleon, changing her race from crime to crime.
2002 — Stiviano was arrested by LAPD for petty theft. The official documents — obtained by TMZ — show she was a 5’4″ 128 lb Hispanic woman named Vanessa Maria Perez. She was convicted and placed on probation.
2004 — Stiviano was arrested by Santa Monica PD for another petty theft and felony burglary. Her name was Vanessa Maria Perez (same as the first) but this time she’s taller and thinner — a 5’8″ 115 lb Hispanic woman.
2010 — Stiviano was arrested by LAPD for possession of a controlled substance — a felony. This time she’s Vanessa Maria Perez again, but she’s black, weighing in at 5’7″ and 125 lbs.
2012 — Stiviano was busted by CHP for DUI. This time she was booked as Monica Gallegos, a 5’7″ 110 lb black woman. We don’t know the disposition.
In addition to Vanness Maria Perez and Monica Gallegos, court records show she also used the names Maria Valdez, Maria Vanessa Perez and Mariamonica Perez Gallegos. She’s currently going by V. Stiviano.
According to Stiv…whatever her name is, she didn’t leak the tapes that caused Sterling’s downfall but she isn’t exactly in his good graces either. The only tidbit of info the Clippers would admit to was Sterling currently has her under the gun for allegedly embezzling $1.8 million from him.
