The reality show beauty was preparing to walk in the Toure Designs fashion show when a man named Carlos Gonzales physically assaulted her.
From The Urban Daily:
Mr. Gonzales was the production manager of the Helen Mills event venue which was where the Toure show was being held.
Carlos reportedly made it pretty clear that he had no respect for Tahiry from the get go. Gonzales allegedly made rude comments to her throughout their interaction.
One bystander who witnessed the attack stated that the altercation began when Tahiry questioned Carlos as to why he was being so rude to her. The question seemingly triggered Gonzales to “black out” and he supposedly begin hurling obscenities at her as he walked up closer to her.
Tahiry warned him not to speak to her that way and in response Carlos reportedly began striking her. During the attack, Carlos repeatedly not only hit Tahiry multiple times but also attempted to drag her by her hair as well. A source claims it took about 7 or 8 men to pull him off of her.
Tahiry was taken to Lenox Hill hospital to receive medical attention for her injuries. She was later released and is said to be recovering at home.
Friend Kenny Hamilton tweeted his support for the star:
