Donald Sterling's girlfriend V. Stiviano won't cooperate with the NBA after two audio tapes leaked with the Los Angeles Clippers making racist comments.
According to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Stiviano is not talking to the league after TMZ captured Sterling in the course of an argument talking about negatively about black people.
"It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you're associating with black people," the man in the recording says, later adding: "I'm just saying, in your ... Instagrams, you don't have to have yourself with, walking with black people."
"Don't put him on an Instagram for the world to have to see so they have to call me," he says. "And don't bring him to my games."
The Los Angeles Times reported that Stiviano has attempted to lie low since the audio leaked last Friday. There was a sign taped to her apartment near the Beverly Center on Sunday that read, "I have no comment."
The NBA released announced that it was conducting a "full investigation into the recording."
"The remarks heard on the recording are disturbing and offensive," NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in the statement, "but at this time we have no further information."
On Saturday, the Clippers' president Andy Roeser said that the team did not know whether or not the man recorded is Sterling, but defended the owner and said the comments do no reflect his "views, beliefs or feelings."
Meanwhile, the Clippers team staged a silent protest on Sunday when they played against the Golden State Warriors. As they warmed up for the game, the players removed their warmup shirts to reveal plan T-Shirts with their "Clippers" logo hidden.
