V Stiviano Says She Never Slept with Donald Sterling Because He's Gay

This just got interesting (or something). V Stiviano says she never engaged in any kind of sexual relationship with disgraced ex-NBA owner Donald Sterling, because he is gay.

According to TMZ, a countersuit filed by her against Shelly Sterling (Donald Sterling's wife), Stiviano claims she was his "beard." Stiviano is also suing for defamation, because she says the couple accused her of embezzling money and property.

In the new docs, Stiviano argues that the items in question were given to her in exchange for being Donald's "beard — and she insists Shelly knew about it.

Stiviano states ... she was "not ever a sexual partner of Donald T. Sterling" and "believes that [Sterling] is a homosexual and enjoys sexual acts and or sexual congress with males."

In the legal doc, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Stiviano says Shelly was "acutely aware of [Donald's] sexual orientation and condoned same as well as acknowledged and approved [Donald's] gifts of money [to Stiviano].

She is asking for $10 million in the suit.
