Tahiry Jose Viciously Attacked By A Man During New York Fashion Week

September 10, 2014  |  

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is supposed to be a time of glitz and glamour, new beginnings and fabulosity. But unfortunately, for “Love and Hip Hop New York” star, Tahiry Jose, the week was marred by a vicious, violent episode.

Tahiry was backstage preparing to walk the runway for the first time for Toure Designs. But before she could make it to the catwalk, she was brutally beaten by a man.

Information about the attack is still continuing to surface but our sister site, Bossip obtained an exclusive about what happened that evening.

“Yesterday, (Monday evening), while preparing to walk in her first runway show with Toure Designs, reality star Tahiry Jose was viciously attacked by an employee of the PR firm, who serves as the production manager of the Helen Mills event venue, where the show was to be held. The man had shown a strong disliking towards Tahiry from the beginning of their interaction, with everything from rude comments to an utter lack of respect for her as a woman. One bystander who witnessed the attack stated that the altercation began when Tahiry questioned the man as to why he was being so rude to her, which triggered him to “black out” on her, spewing foul commentary as he walked closer to her. After Tahiry warned him not to speak to her that way, he got closer began strike her. During the attack, the man repeatedly struck Tahiry multiple times while attempting to drag her by her hair. It took 7-8 men to pull him off of her.”

The beating was so bad, Tahiry was taken to Lenox hospital. She was later released and is now recovering at home.

Bossip also heard reports that the root of the altercation started with the PR firm who was described as being continuously belittling and disrespectful toward Tahiry. And during the attack, they sat idly by and watched it happen before forcing Tahiry and her team into a room, slowing their exit to the hospital.

After the incident, the venue cancelled and the show was moved at the last minute.

Another day, another man striking a woman. This guy is clearly out of his mind and we certainly hope that there will be consequences for his heinous actions.
