Son of Clippers owner found dead at home
Scott Sterling, the 32-year-old son of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, was found dead in his Malibu home Tuesday night, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Sterling had not been seen by family or friends for at least two days, according to an L.A. County Sheriff’s Department spokesman. No one else was at the home when the body was discovered, according to the sheriff’s department.
A sheriff’s spokesman said his office is investigating the death as a possible drug overdose.
The younger Sterling was not involved with the Clippers, according to the team’s 2012-13 media guide.
In 1999, a fight between Scott Sterling and friend at Donald Sterling’s home in Beverly Hills ended with the friend shot, but no charges were ever filed.
Donald Sterling was No. 250 on the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans released in September with a net worth of $1.9 billion. He has owned the Clippers for 32 seasons.
