According to the KTLA story from January 2013, Scott Sterling was found dead in his Malibu apartment.
Sterling and his estranged wife, Shelly, released a statement about the death, saying “our son Scott has fought a long and valiant battle against Type 1 Diabetes. His death is a terrible tragedy.” source
On Twitter, users were sharing the story as if it were a recent development.
“Damn R.I.P. Donald Sterling’s son Daniel Sterling found dead,” one person wrote.
