According to TMZ, Sterling has reached out to Stiviano to ask her “How can we make this go away?” Stiviano apparently has over a 100 more hours of Sterling recordings which are believed to be very damaging. A settlement between the two may be in the works.
To complicate the situation further, Donald’s wife, Sally, previously filed a lawsuit against Stiviano accusing her of stealing $1.8 million from the businessman. The suitstates Sally is “a married woman seeking to protect and recover community property in her individual capacity.”
Stiviano is reportedly upset that Sterling publicly backed the lawsuit.
