V. Stiviano, the woman who recorded Donald Sterling's racist rant that leaked last week, reportedly has a lengthy rap sheet that includes a handful of different aliases.

The woman who describes herself as the former Los Angeles Clippers owner's personal assistant has been arrested four times since 2002 and has been identified as Vanessa Maria Perez, Monica Gallegos, Maria Valdez, Maria Vanessa Perez, and Mariamonica Perez Gallegos, according to TMZ.

In 2002, she was picked up in Los Angeles for petty theft and identified as a 5-foot-4, 128-pound Hispanic woman named Vanessa Maria Perez, according to official documents obtained by the gossip site.

Two years later, V. Stiviano was cited in Santa Monica for petty theft and felony burglary. She provided the same name as the first arrest but she was reported as a 5-foot-8, 115-pound Hispanic woman.

She was arrested in 2010 for possession of a controlled substance and recorded as a 5-foot-7, 125-pound African American woman, again with the Perez moniker.

Her most recent brush with the law happened in 2012 when she was booked for DUI as Monica Gallegos, a 5-foot-7, 110-pound black woman, according to TMZ.

Fox Sports reported that the 31-year-old's legal name was Vanessa Maria Perez until she changed it to V. Stiviano in 2010.

Last week, Stiviano sat down with Barbara Walters on "20/20" and said that, despite Sterling's rant, she does not believe the 80-year-old is racist.

"I think Mr. Sterling is from a different generation than I am," she said. "I think he was brought up to believe these things — segregation, whites, and blacks. But through his actions he's shown that he's not a racist. He's shown to be a very generous and kind man."

NBC Commissioner Adam Silver hit Sterling with a lifetime ban and a $2.5 million fine last week after audio recordings surfaced of the octogenarian criticizing Stiviano for posting pictures of herself with black people on Instagram.
