Court documents allege Donald Sterling consulted with Alexandra Castro, a woman he called 'a prostitute', on team personnel decisions.

“During our relationship, Mr. Sterling consulted me on issues he was considering almost every day including, among others, whether he should hire Alvin Gentry to coach the Los Angeles Clippers (although I had no experience in such matters), how he should respond to requests by players for the Los Angeles Clippers for increases in their compensation (Mr. Sterling and I often had dinner at the Arena Club with agents for a number of players)," said Castro.

In 2003, Sterling described Alexandra Castro under oath as .. “.. a prostitute … she was a total freak and a piece of trash."

Later in the same deposition, Sterling elaborated on the nature of their relationship.

“It was purely sex for money, money for sex, sex for money, money for sex. The girl was providing sex for money.”
