A pair of white men shouting racial slurs assaulted former Donald Sterling paramour V. Stiviano outside a New York City hotel last night, Stiviano's lawyer tells Radar. "They were about 5'7" and they knew exactly who she was. They began to hit her and called her the N word." Mac Nehoray said. "She was able to run away and several onlookers then began attempting to apprehend the two men." Nehoray says Stiviano saw a doctor, and "one side of her face is extremely red."

A guard at the hotel tells the New York Post that he saw Stiviano and her friends get into a brawl involving two strangers around 7pm, but said he didn't hear any racial slurs. A manager at a hotel restaurant says a customer "said they saw one guy punch her in the face out of nowhere," adding that in the ensuing fight "one of the guys who was trying to beat her up ended up really bloody."

Stiviano of course became famous for recording Sterling's now-infamous racist comments. On Friday, TMZ revealed video in which Stiviano, who is black, makes some racist remarks of her own, saying:

  • "I don't understand black people. The minute you give them a little bit of money, they don't know what to do with it. They just act crazy. They're like 'Yo, I wanna put extra rims on top of my rims. And my rims are gonna turn around. I'm gonna call them spinners. … They do stupid [bleep] like that."
