NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said on Monday that there was no record of an assault against V. Stiviano at a Manhattan club and that he had hoped Donald Sterling's alleged ex would've stayed away from New York.
"I wasn't even aware she was in town," Bratton told reporters, responding to reports that Stiviano was attacked Sunday night. "We would have hoped that she would stay on the West Coast."
Stiviano's lawyer Mac Nehorary told RadarOnline that she was beaten by two white men as she left the Gansevoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District.
Nehorary said the men "descended on her" and called Stiviano "disgusting" slurs around 7 p.m. She was taken to a doctor, he said, and is expected to fully recover from the alleged attack.
Her lawyer said she hadn't filed a police report. When asked about the reports, Bratton said the only information he had was what he read Monday morning.
Stiviano is in New York City for an interview on CNN Monday night. Recorded conversations recently surfaced of the 31-year-old and Sterling in which the Los Angeles Clippers owner made racist remarks.
