With a $2 billion sale of the Los Angeles Clippers hanging in the balance, a judge asked lawyers Monday, June 23, 2014, for more legal documents arguing their points before he decides whether to approve the sale being contested by the team’s embattled owner, Donald Sterling.

Donald Sterling and Shelly Sterling have been married 59 years.

They’ve attacked the NBA together.

They’ve denied his racism together.

They’ve allegedly committed housing discrimination together.

But they’re finally splitting.

Dan Woike of The Orange County Register:

In documents acquired by the Register, Donald Sterling filed for divorce Tuesday in Superior Court of California in Los Angeles, 16 days before the couple’s 60th anniversary.

Donald called Shelly a “pig” during court proceedings last year. He also slept with numerous other women and didn’t hide it. I don’t know the boundaries of their marriage, so far be it for me to call that cheating.

But from afar, it’s all disturbing – and so are they.
