V. Stiviano Assaulted in NYC

V. Stiviano, the associate of LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling who caught his racially inflammatory comments on tape, was assaulted by two men in New York City and called racial slurs, her lawyer said on Sunday.

Around 7pm, as Stiviano was leaving the Gansevoort Hotel in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, “two white men descended on her,” attorney Mac Nehorary said.

“They were about 5’7 and they knew exactly who she was. They began to hit her and called her the N word.

“Other disgusting slurs were made against her. She was able to run away and several onlookers then began attempting to apprehend the two men.”

While Stiviano was able to get away from her assailants, Nehoray said Stiviano's face was “extremely red” and later saw a doctor for her injuries.

According to a report by the NYPost --A guard at the Ganse¬voort said he saw Stiviano and her crew get involved in the brawl at around 7 p.m.

He said Stiviano was with several male and female friends when they got into an argument among themselves. That’s when the two strangers got involved, he said.

“Eventually, hands started being thrown,” the bouncer told The Post. “It looks like the guys in the group were defending the girls.”

The bouncer said he didn’t see Stiviano get hit, and didn’t hear the N-word.

“In the chaos, I did not see her get popped in the face, but it wouldn’t surprise me if she did because it was crazy out there,” he said.

Nicholas Pietro, manager of the Chester restaurant in the Gansevoort, said a customer witnessed a woman being hit in the face.

“One of the patrons who saw the whole thing said they saw one guy punch her in the face out of nowhere,” he said. “So they got into a tussle and she tried to get away. Some people tried to break up the fight.

“One of the guys who was trying to beat her up ended up really bloody.”

The incident comes after video surfaced on TMZ that showed Stiviano making disparaging remarks about African-Americans. "I don't understand black people. You give them a little bit of money, they don't know what to do with it," she says in the video that purportedly dates back to 2011 as part of a reality show pilot, TMZ said. CNN reached out to Nehoray for comment on the video but has not received a response.

This is not the first incident or threat that Stiviano has faced since the recording she made of Sterling's racist remarks were leaked to the press. She has allegedly received a number of death threats and hate mail.

Stiviano and her lawyer are expected to appear on Anderson Cooper 360 on Monday, June 2.
