It’s a sad day in side-piece history. V. Stiviano, Donald Sterling’s former side-piece, has been ordered to return over $2.6 million in gifts and money he gave her, to his wife Shelly Sterling.

A Los Angeles judge ruled that, because California is a community property state, Sterling had no right to ‘gift’ Stiviano with items bought by money he shared with his wife.

From USA Today:

he ruling comes nearly a year after the recording of Sterling telling Stiviano not to associate with black people caused an uproar and led the NBA to ban him for life and fine him $2.5 million.

With the NBA threatening to seize the team, Shelly Sterling got hold of a family trust by showing her husband had signs of Alzheimer’s disease and negotiated a record $2 billion sale to ex-Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

Her husband failed to block the sale in court and has sued his wife and the NBA in federal court.

The couple presented a united front at the Stiviano trial, discussing their enduring love for each other.

Testimony shed little light on the nature of the unusual three-way relationship that lasted about 2½ years.

Shelly Sterling said she assumed Stiviano was her husband’s mistress.

Stiviano and Donald Sterling denied having sex. She referred to him as a father figure and lover.

Goodbye to the house, Ferrari and probably countless other gifts.

Who gets to keep the visor?
