V. Stiviano landed at Los Angeles International Airport last night, and she hid the right side of her face with a large plastic object that resembled a set of multi-colored pipes. So weird!
Donald Sterling's former lady love claims she was attacked by a group of men outside of the Gansvoort hotel in New York City this past weekend, and one of the alleged assailants was set free after his arraignment on reduced charges Wednesday.
Dominick Diorio, 40, was released without bail after appearing before a judge in Manhattan Criminal Court, and his lawyer, David Scott Smith, told reporters that nothing happened and this was simple a matter of V. seeking attention. “I’m confident that as this case goes forward and the investigation continues, that Ms. Stiviano’s allegations will likewise begin to fail and at the end of the day the assault charge will be demised as well,” Smith said. “Simply put, a credible victim of a crime does not have her attorneys call the press before she calls he police. Ms. Stiviano seems intent on keeping her name in the spotlight.”
Stiviano told police she was with her sister and a pal at Revel when a group of men at another table called her a prostitute, and after dinner, both parties exchanged words outside of the restaurant. Diorio allegedly yelled more slurs at Stiviano, but she claims to have ignored this and gotten in a cab with her sister, but apparently one man in the group held the door of the car open and yelled at her and while Diorio allegedly punched her in the face.
Stiviano's attorney Mac Nehoray said in a statement, "We understand that there are now two videos of the assault that have been located. In addition, several witnesses have been come forward with relevant and critical information regarding the facts surrounding the incident and the identity of the assailants."
V. wouldn't comment on the matter last night ... it certainly sounds like a mess!
