Clipped: The Secret Life of V. Stiviano and Her Parents

She came from a troubled background, with a history of arrests and her mother's conviction!

The FX miniseries “Clipped,” based on Donald Sterling’s 2014 scandal, provides an overview of the fiasco and how the former Clippers owner received a lifetime ban.

One of the significant characters of the six-episode series is V. Stiviano, Sterling’s secretary and ex-girlfriend, who allegedly leaked the tape.

Key Takeaways

  • V. Stiviano was Donald Sterling’s secretary and ex-girlfriend who allegedly leaked the tape that led to Sterling’s lifetime ban from the NBA.
  • She came from a troubled background, with a history of arrests and her mother’s conviction.
  • Since the scandal, Stiviano has remained primarily out of the public eye. Her last public statement was in 2018, defending freedom of speech.

Who Is V. Stiviano?

The 41-year-old model was born Maria Vanessa Perez in Los Angeles but changed her name to V. Stiviano in 2010.

She met Donald Sterling in 2010 during a Super Bowl party, and her life changed forever afterward.

They got close soon, and she was offered a job at Clippers.

Coincidently, she attended East Los Angeles High School, the same school Sterling and his wife went to.

Troubled Past And Details Of Her Parents

V. Stiviano came from poverty and had a tussle with the system in the past.

In 2002 and 2004, she was arrested for shoplifting at a Ross store and Old Navy, respectively.

In addition, she was also apprehended for possession of a controlled substance in 2010 and a DUI in 2012.

Not only that, she underwent plastic surgery to transfer her looks as the former model suffered from skin problems and low confidence during her teenage.

V. Stiviano was raised in Section 8 housing in San Antonio by her jobless Mexican mother, Martha Perez, and her husband, Guillermo Beltran, a construction worker.

It is believed that Stiviano’s biological father was an African-American; hence, Guillermo must be her step-dad.

However, the name and details of her biological father are unknown.

Legal trouble is nothing new for Stiviano’s family; her mom also has a history with the law.

Martha was once convicted of “using her kids to steal groceries from an H-E-B.”

She was convicted of using three of her kids to assist her in stealing groceries worth $113 from a supermarket.

Where Is V. Stiviano Now?

Nowadays, V has stayed out of the limelight and hasn’t been sighted much.

She has a private Instagram, making her social life outside our vision.

The last time she publicly spoke was to TMZ in 2018, where she said,

“Everyone’s making such a big deal over every small little thing. No one has freedom of speech anymore! No one can say what they feel because if they do, they’re gonna lose their job.”

V. Stiviano

It would be great to know “what she thinks” of the new show, but till now, she has kept her mouth shut.

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • A conversation recording between Sterling and his mistress, V. Stiviano, was released by TMZ Sports in 2014, where he was making racist remarks.
  • As a result, he was banned for life, fined $2.5 million, and forced to sell the team.
  • Although Stiviano denied releasing the tape, she had posted a bunch of pictures hinting before it dropped.
