V. Stiviano is reportedly being investigated for extortion.

The woman whose recordings of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling making racist comments led to his downfall, allegedly may have demanded that Sterling pay her to keep the tapes secret.

According to TMZ, law enforcement officials have contacted Shelly Sterling, Donald’s wife, to request an interview in connection with the Stiviano investigation.

Also at issue is whether Stiviano’s recordings of Sterling were legal, since private conversations cannot be taped in California without the consent of both parties.

Stiviano’s legal team has not yet had a comment on the matter.

Last week, Sterling was quoted as saying of Stiviano, “I wish I had just paid her off.”
