The lawyer representing Vanessa Stiviano has issued a statement saying the audiotape of his client arguing with Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is "legitimate."

As has been reporting, the tape contains Sterling, 80, chastising his 38-year-old girlfriend for her association with black men. He didn't want her bringing them to Clippers game and he didn't want her to post pics of them on her Instagram account.

"This office understands that the currently released audio tape of approximately 15 minutes is a portion of approximately one (1) hour of overall audio recording of Mr. Donald T. Sterling and Ms. Stiviano, and is in fact legitimate. Ms. Stiviano did not release the tape(s) to any news media. Due to the present litigation and its absurd allegations, which Ms. Stiviano vehemently denies, Ms. Stiviano and this office have no comments at this time," attorney Mac E. Nehoray said in his statement.

The "litigation" he referenced is the lawsuit filed by Sterling's wife of 50 years, Rochelle Sterling, against Stiviano. The estranged wife claims that Sterling has given his mistress close to $3 million, which she claims is from their community assets, over the last four years, and she wants it back.
