V. Stiviano Caught on Tape Making Racist Remarks

In an ironic turn of events, the woman behind the Donald Sterling scandal, V. Stiviano, has been caught on tape making derogatory statements towards African-Americans, TMZ reports.

Two video were made public on Saturday which showed Stiviano herself making racial slurs in the pilot of a 2011 reality TV show about gold-diggers.

"I don't understand black people," the 31-year-old says in one clip. "The minute you give them a little bit of money, they don't know what to do with it. They just act crazy. ... They're like, 'Yo, I wanna put some rims on top of my rims. And my rims are gonna turn around, so I'm gonna call them - what? Spinners.'"

In the second clip, Stiviano is shown riding in a car with an African-American companion while holding an Elmo doll. At one point, speaking to the stuffed doll, the model quips that she doesn't like black people.

Stiviano is the woman at the heart of a recent storm for recording L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling making racists remarks in a phone conversation. The release of the tapes are what led to the NBA pressuring Sterling to relinquish ownership of the Clippers, a team he's owned for over three decades.

The 80-year-old billionaire was also banned for life from the NBA and leveled with a fine of $2.5 million.

In another secretly taped conversation, Sterling claimed to have made the racists remarks in an attempt to bed the much younger Stiviano.

The mogul later filed a $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA in response to what he believed to be the organization's unfair treatment of him and the unnecessary attention given to what he referred to as a 'lovers' quarrel'.

Stiviano, however, has continued to deny any romantic connection to Sterling despite having been lavished with gifts by the decades-older businessman.
