Attorney Mac Nehoray said that two men "punched her on the right side of her face several times... They were about 5-foot-7 and they knew exactly who she was. They began to hit her and called her the N-word."
Stiviano made recordings of real estate mogul and L.A. Clippers owner Sterling airing extremely bigoted views about blacks and Mexicans, resulting in Sterling's ultimate ban from the NBA and the sale of the Clippers. She's been described as his mistress, personal assistant and, by Stiviano herself as a "silly rabbit." She is in NYC to appear on Anderson Cooper's CNN show, after a weekend where an old video where she mocks black people surfaced.
Nehoray described the men as white, adding, "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 she was treated by a doctor and is fine overall, but "one side of her face is extremely red... obviously [she is] very scared" about her wellbeing.
The Post spoke to a bouncer, who "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.
“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.
And a manager at a restaurant in the hotel said, "One of the patrons who saw the whole thing said they saw one guy punch her in the face out nowhere,. 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."
Stiviano hasn't filed a police report yet, but Nehoray believes she plans to, telling Radar Online, "[H]er immediate reaction was to run away from the attackers and get to safety."
