V. Stiviano and infamous Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling are making headlines yet again. However, this time he’s not the center of discussion — she is.
According to Radar Online, Stiviano was reportedly beaten by two white men in New York City on the evening of Friday, May 30. The injuries she sustained were also said to have been quite severe. Although most people may speculate that the news is only a rumor, Radar reports that the incident was exclusively confirmed by Stiviano’s attorney, Mac Nehorary.
He also gave a brief account of the gruesome incident. However, no specified details have been released as of yet. In short, Nehorary basically offered a quick, evasive synopsis of the altercation.
“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.”
Her attorney also stated that she has been examined by a doctor, and is expected to make a full recovery. However, several media outlets aren’t too convinced about the alleged physical altercation. Since the news comes shortly after a video leaked of Stiviano making racist comments, where she allegedly referred to black people as “stupid” and “crazy.”
According to TMZ, the footage was actually recorded back in 2011. However, the time frame doesn’t actually help the level of incrimination. The racial slurs are quite astounding, given her history with Sterling. The content only adds fuel to the Donald Sterling “racist scandal” since Stiviano was reportedly the person who ousted him. Here’s what she had to say:
“I don’t understand black people. You give them a little bit of money, they don’t know what to do with it. [Black people] just act crazy… they’re like, ‘Yo, I wanna put extra (car) rims on top of my rims. And my rims are gonna turn around. I’m gonna call them spinners.'”
The timing of Stiviano’s alleged assault could actually be a form of damage control to divert attention from the incriminating video. Do you think she was really assaulted or not?
