V. Stiviano Attacked In New York City, Says Attorney
The woman credited with singlehandedly taking down former Clippers owner Donald Sterling was brutally attacked in New York City, Radar Online reports. According to V. Stiviano’s attorney, Mac Nehorary, she was exiting a hotel in Manhattan when she was approached by two white males.
“They were about 5’7″ and they knew exactly who she was,” said Nehorary. “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.”
He adds that there were marks left on his client’s face from where the men struck her. Nehorary went on to say that following the attack, Stiviano had to seek medical attention. During the examination, doctors found her to be “banged up but OK . She is said to be traumatized by the incident and in great fear for her safety.
So far, a police report has not been filed regarding the incident. Nehorary adds that she “will probably do so [but] her immediate reaction was to run away from the attackers and get to safety.” Interestingly, an NYPD spokesperson says that they’re not expecting charges to emerge as a result of the assault.
“As of now this has no legs,” police officials told ABC.
Stiviano claims that she has received multiple death threats since news of the Donald Sterling scandal first made media headlines.
“Most of the threats were made on social media, and this is one of the reasons why she has scaled back her activity,” said Nehorary. “It has been very scary for V, and she also hired a bodyguard.”
