Posted Friday May 2, 2014 11:43 AM GMT

He’s been making headlines for all the wrong reasons as of late, and it turns out Donald Sterling also has a cancer diagnosis to deal with.

The controversial Los Angeles Clippers owner, who was exposed for his racist beliefs last week, is reportedly battling prostate cancer and has been taking medication that has caused his face to puff up in recent months.

An insider told the New York Post, “They thought he would die two years ago.” Apparently he’s had cancer for a number of years.

Blake Griffin, a star player for the Clippers, offered his condolences after finding out about Donald’s diagnosis this week- “If that’s true, my thoughts and prayers are with him. Nobody deserves to go through something like that.”
