Well, we can't really say we're shocked…
Remember Donald Sterling — that old, crazy, racist guy who was in the news EVERY day about a year ago? Well he's back!
This time it's because the 81-year-old former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers has filed for divorce from his wife, Shelly Sterling.

This of course comes after ALL the drama over the past year and a half or so with Sterling's comments, the whole V. Stiviano thing, and ultimately Shelly selling the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer for $2 billion.
The sale came after Donald was found to have Alzheimer's and ruled to be mentally incompetent to be in charge of the Sterling family trust!
So what's the reason for divorce? Simple, the classic tried and true "irreconcilable differences."
Donald is apparently alleging that he has not received his share of the money from the sale and he "hereby demands an accounting and distribution."
The divorce isn't all that shocking because in the midst of the scandal, in an interview, Shelly Sterling told ABC news she'd already been planning to divorce her husband saying:
"For the last 20 years, I've been seeing attorneys for a divorce. In fact, I have here – I just filed – I was going to file the petition. I signed the petition for a divorce. And it came to almost being filed. And then, my financial adviser and my attorney said to me, 'Not now.'"
Well hopefully this will be the end of their long disputes and we don't have to hear much more from either of the Sterlings!
