V. Stiviano, whose tape recording of Donald Sterling ranting against African-Americans led to his NBA lifetime ban, was assaulted by two men outside a New York hotel Sunday night, her lawyer told CNN.
The assault took place as Stiviano was leaving a restaurant by the Gansevoort Hotel with her sister and friends.
The men followed her, yelling racial slurs, said Stiviano’s attorney Mac Nehoray.
They punched her several times, leaving the right side of her face red and swollen, he said.
Stiviano didn’t immediately file a police report, because “she had to get out of there,” Nehoray said.
“I believe she will file a police report Monday,” he said.
The incident comes after video surfaced on TMZ that showed Stiviano making disparaging remarks about African-Americans. CNN
