The woman who has instigated the biggest NBA scandal of recent years was violently attacked on Sunday night.
The alleged mistress of former LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling, V. Stiviano was assaulted by two men on Sunday night in New York.
Reports claimed that the two men punched her and called her by the N-word before verbally abusing her further.
Stiviano reportedly fled away from her attackers and bystanders have claimed to have tried and apprehend the two assailants.
Mac Nehorary, Stiviano's lawyer is the person who has confirmed the story and has also claimed that she has not yet filed a police report but probably will do so.
Stiviano set the NBA on fire last month as the post-season began when she released tapes of the then Clippers owner Sterling making racist remarks.
Since then the league and franchise have been embroiled in controversy which has seen Sterling banned for life and fined heavily and the Clippers on the verge of new ownership.
