Having started his career as a lawyer, Sterling is also a real estate tycoon who continues to add to his stable of apartment buildings predominantly in Los Angeles. In addition to LA, he has properties in Orange County, San Diego and Las Vegas. Even tough a former attorney, a Los Angeles jury ruled against Sterling making him pay $17.3 million in a lawsuit filed by an actress, Robyn Cohen, who lost most of her belongings in a fire at a West Hollywood apartment building owned by Sterling. He married the former Rochelle "Shelly" Stein, in 1957, with whom he has three children.

In April 2014, one of Donald's ex-girlfriends released an audio recording that contained racist rants allegedly made by the billionaire during an argument over her Instragram account. The remarks were so shocking that even President Obama was forced to address them during a press conference while visiting the Prime Minister of Malaysia. On April 29, 2014, Adam Silver from the NBA announced that the league was banning Donald Sterling from all NBA events for life. They also are going to do everything in their power to force Sterling to sell the Clippers.
