In a wide-ranging interview today with Dr. Phil, V. Stiviano, the woman at the center of the Donald Sterling controversy, strongly denied she was every physically intimate with Sterling, in spite of what both Sterling and his wife have claimed about their relationship.

Initial media reports said Stiviano was Sterling’s girlfriend, but in her interview with , she framed herself as more of a companion to the L.A. Clippers owner. Dr. Phil told her that both Sterlings have alleged a sexual affair took place, and so “a lot of people are being led to believe that you were in a sexual relationship with him.”

She responded, “Not only are they both wrong, but they’re lying. It’s a lie. And I know it’s a lie. He knows it’s a lie. She knows it’s a lie.”

In another part of the interview, Dr. Phil told Stiviano she exhibits “attention-getting behavior” as opposed to staying out of the spotlight.
