V. Stiviano Assaulted In New York, Lawyer Says


V. Stiviano, the woman who allegedly made secret recordings of Los Angeles Clippers' owner Donald Sterling making racist comments, was reportedly beaten by two men in New York on Sunday night.

“They were about 5’7 and they knew exactly who she was. They began to hit her and called her the N word," attorney Mac Nehoray told Radar Online. “Other disgusting slurs were made against her. She was able to run away and several onlookers then began attempting to apprehend the two men.”

He said the incident happened at about 7 p.m. outside the Gansevoort Hotel in Manhattan.

A bouncer at the hotel told the New York Daily News that "fists were thrown" in a brawl that broke out in front of the building and Stiviano was somehow in the middle of it. He said, however, that it wasn't clear what role she played in the fight.

Stiviano's attorney told CBS Los Angeles that the 31-year-old was punched “on the right side of her face several times." The attorney added that Stiviano did not file a police report but will “probably do so.”
