Vanessa Stiviano, the woman who is at the heart of Donald Sterling’s racism scandal was badly beaten in New York City. Her lawyer confirmed that Stiviano was beaten by two white men around 7 pm as she was leaving the Gansevoort Hotel in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.
Her attorney, Mac Nehorary stated, “two white men descended on her. 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.”
Nehorary went on to say that Stiviano was seen by a doctor and, “one side of her face is extremely red and she is obviously very scared about her wellbeing. She is expected to make a full recovery.
While Stiviano hadn’t filed a police report yet, Nehorary stated, she “will probably do so but her immediate reaction was to run away from the attackers and get to safety.
A source close to Stiviano revealed that since the racism scandal began, “V started getting death threats almost immediately after Sterling’s racist rants, which she recorded, were made public. Most of the threats were made on social media, and this is one of the reasons why she has scaled back her activity. It has been very scary for V, and she also hired a bodyguard.”
