(Newser) – Donald Sterling has confirmed he and wife Shelly are indeed heading for divorce—but USA Today reports Shelly may be holding back the papers as leverage in the fight for her share of the LA Clippers. "I've destroyed her life," Sterling told CNN's Anderson Cooper when he confirmed the divorce plans last night, adding that Shelly should be allowed to keep her share. He also said, according to the Daily Mail, he doesn't think he'll lose out on the Clippers any time soon: "My lawyer is telling me there’s not a chance in the world that anybody can make you sell your team and if they ever could it would take 20 years of litigation."

As for the $2.5M fine imposed by the NBA: "I'm not gonna pay them. I've done nothing wrong," he said, according to the Mail. "$2.5M for what? For telling a girl I wanted to have sex with her and why it would be so beneficial for her?" Speaking of sex, prepare for TMI. The Daily Mail gives more details on the recording released yesterday, revealing that Sterling also said V. Stiviano "loves sex," was "an animal" between the sheets, and he's now paying a "high price" for sleeping with her. After what she's done to him, though, he said he's now worried that Stiviano will release pictures of the two of them in bed together.
