A new bombshell has surfaced that embattled billionaire Donald Sterling reportedly has prostate cancer, and doctors told him he was going to die two years ago!
"People have been predicting his imminent demise," a source tells the New York Post. "I'm sure he has the best drugs money can buy. He can do anything to keep himself alive."
The Clippers owner kept the cancer a secret from his own players, who found out about it for the first time after their hearbreaking one-point loss last night in game six of the playoffs.
"My thoughts and prayers are with him. Nobody deserves to go through something like that," said one player.
Barbara Walters flew into Los Angeles today and is reportedly close to scoring the first TV interview with Sterling since he was banned for life from the NBA.
And we're finally getting a look a V. Stiviano's face for the first time since the Sterling scandal broke.
She was required for security reasons to remove that sun visor she's been wearing everywhere when she went inside a Wells Fargo bank in Los Angeles.
When night fell, she danced for the paparazzi outside a restaurant where she went for dinner. She's apparently still in communication with Sterling. The name "Don Sterling" could be seen on her iPhone as she left.
Meanwhile, we're learning more about the bizarre relationship between Donald Sterling and his wife, Rochelle.
Alexandra Castro, who had a three-year affair with Sterling, and took a photo of him in bed, says that Sterling told her he and his wife "had not been intimate with each other since approximately two years after their marriage...that he also permitted his wife to have the freedom to have relationships with others."

Rochelle Sterling has played a key role in her husband's business empire. She was once caught on tape allegedly posing as a health inspector so she could evict tenants from apartment buildings owned by the Sterlings.
On the tape a tenant asks, "So, you're Miss Shelby from the Health Department?"
"Yes sir," replied Rochelle.
Today, INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret spoke to Daryl Williams who shot the video and asked, "Do you feel like the Sterlings basically forced you out of their house?"
Williams replied, "Not basically. They did! They stole my home from me."
Sterling paid $2.7 million to settle that lawsuit and denied any wrongdoing.
