The 40-year-old man accused of attacking V. Stiviano in a racist assault which left her face severely bruised intends to deny the charges, his lawyer has said.

Dominick Diorio made a brief court appearance on Wednesday and was released without bail.

He did not speak to waiting reporters but his attorney David Scott Smith said he expects the allegations to ‘begin to fail’ as soon as they are examined with more scrutiny.

He went on to accuse Stiviano of inventing the attack in order to gain publicity or to ‘keep her name in the spotlight’.

‘Simply put, a credible victim of a crime does not have her attorney call the press before she calls the police,’ said Smith.

‘Miss Stiviano seems intent on keeping her name in the spotlight. But I can assure you if this case goes to trial, my cross-examination will last longer than her 15 minutes of fame.’

Pictures which V. Stiviano claims are proof she was assaulted in New York City were released yesterday by MailOnline.

The images allegedly show extensive bruising across the right side of the 31-year-old’s face.

In one photograph, taken after Sunday’s alleged assault outside the Gansevoort Hotel, a stunned looking Stiviano has what appears to be a huge florid mark burgeoning from her eye down to her chin.

In the other, which was presumably taken the day after, Stiviano’s face seems to be painfully swollen, especially around her cheek.

Even though she is wearing make-up in one of the photographs, the effects of the alleged attack appear to be visible.

Diorio, of Old Bethpage, Long Island, appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court for his arraignment.

He was initially changed with assault and a hate crime but these charges were reduced to assault in the hearing.

Diorio’s attorney, David Scott Smith, told The New York Post that he is pleased the hate crime charges have been dropped.

‘I’d like to commend the District Attorney’s Office for deciding not to prosecute my client for a hate crime and to consent to his release without bail,’ said Smith.

‘I’m confident that as this case goes forward and the investigation continues, that Miss Stiviano’s allegations will likewise begin to fail and at the end of the day, the assault charge will be dismissed as well.’

Diorio, who was reportedly celebrating his 40th birthday before the alleged run-in with Stiviano, appeared to have a small amount of bruising on his face.

He allegedly told investigators he just ‘slipped and fell’ after a woman threw a phone at him.

However, Stiviano offers an alternative explanation for his injuries.

She claims he and another man allegedly hurled racist abuse at her during a random attack on Sunday evening.

She claims their slurs included the N-word.

    “The 40-year-old man accused of attacking V. Stiviano in a racist assault…”

    Uh oh. UH OH. Not ‘just’ an (alleged) assault. It’s an (alleged) ‘racist’ assault.

    Besides, the way ‘it’ looks in the picture, maybe they should have classified it as an (alleged) ‘transphobia’ assault.
    (I’m getting pretty good at making up nonsensical, leftist words on the fly!)

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      I agree. I always think she looks very odd in most of her photos. So your ‘transphobia’ comment fits the bill perfectly.

  • Puggg

    “Keep her name in the spotlight”

    She has to do that now, because she has certainly proven through her actions that she’s not trustworthy, can’t be trusted with what’s supposed to be private and confidential info, and can’t be trusted to be side action for billionaires. She shot her spitball, she threw her career as a professional sugar baby down the drain.

    • MekongDelta69

      ‘She’/’He’/’It’ looks like that dopey Swiss kid who had plastic surgery to make himself Korean.

      [See AmRen article from a day or two ago.]

      • Who Me?

        I agree, she’s not a “doll”, and that red mark looks like makeup to me. (But I think the idiot kid who tried to go Korean was from Brazil.)

        • ElComadreja

          He was.

    • Don’t worry. Hollywood filth will give her a “reality” show.

  • Lewis33

    Any reporter (or editorialist) who didn’t see this hoax coming and treated it seriously should banned from the profession for life.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    Whoa! An attention seeking [censored] who used racism to gain fame tried to use racism to maintain her waning fame? Color me shocked!

    • Who Me?

      The word is “ho”.

      • Malgus

        You mean “skank” has no place?

        • Who Me?

          “Skank” works, too. So do about 3 more adjectives I can think of, which I know full well are not publishable here, or much of anyplace else. “Bitch” might get through, but “c**t”, and “s**t” won’t for sure, and you KNOW they fit her!

      • alwaysright21

        typical sheboon, “eek ook looks at me!”

  • “Stiviano” (not her real name) is from San Antonio, my neck of the woods. She’s typical of many Mexicans with Negro blood in their veins. I’ve met many of them at the university. They are highly self-absorbed and very destructive toward other people.

    They’re also sex machines. The level of sexual perversion exhibited by these nasty creatures would shock you. Some of the ones I’ve known engage in sexual acts with half a dozen male and female partners a night.

    Poor old Sterling must have Alzheimers or a sex addiction problem to take up with such filth. Now the rest of us have to read about her on a daily basis. I can’t wait for the People mag cover and story, “V. Stiviano Finds Jesus and Turns Her Life Around.” Then there’s the book, just like Monica Lewinsky. Suggested title: My Life as a Vicious, Narcissistic Whore.

    • Jesse James

      or poor old Sterling is another Satan worshiping Illuminati pervert.

    • Or, there’s another explanation.

      He’s 80 years old and a billionaire.

      Who else but an out and outright whore would?

      That’s the thing with very old men with money. They want to have their cake and eat it too. They want whores and can only get whores, but they want to live and exist under the delusion that their whores aren’t whores or maybe they and their money have the power to de-whorify their whores.

      Except it doesn’t work that way. Like I said above, billionaire, but also 80 years old. There’s just some things 80 year old men can’t do as well as 25 year old men, and in the case of the whore in question, her sugar daddy had some of those in his employ and they led her to others. But the dumb whore wasn’t smart enough not to show that off all over Instagram. We know where it went from there.

      Gender double standard hiding in here? Yes. But remember, he had the money.

      • anon

        To answer your question, in all other societies except western ones, if a man were still able to get it up, and could afford to, there would be many women who would, especially for a billionaire.
        What you don’t understand is how sick, perverse and distorted our society is. You think, sexual promiscuity and selfish indulgence is normal and that is the prime motivation of a persons behavior unless its for money. Or both.
        In all normal societies, reproduction and the means to support a family are what is important and what attracts a woman to a man.
        Literally, in all societies except our own, a family man with money, even if 80 years old is far more in demand than an 18 year old stud who does drugs all day long and could care less about these issues.
        My advice? Travel. Go to ANY non-western country. How do people treat you, especially women. What is important to them? Do they act like “whores”?
        You are in for one hell of a wake up call. Not to mention lots of depression once you come back. Our society is deeply, DEEPLY sick and the level of difference from the norm is quite shocking.
        I’ll lay it right on the line. Our way of life won’t last much longer. And doesn’t deserve to.

      • Olorin

        More to the point, Q, early on he probably believed he was going to save her somehow, or reform her, or that she had a heart of gold only he could see, or whatever.

        She may have responded well to this initially. But such things don’t generally work out as per Richard Gere movies. The wealthy greedy person ends up being skilled mainly at speculating and accumulating, while the non-wealthy party proves mostly opportunistic. Then there’s some sort of Gotterdammerung that drags everybody else in.

        In any event we can be thankful that The Ring eventually leads to the destruction of those who lust after it. We don’t have to feel superior, or be tacky. (Which in its own way is backwards idolatry of gold/gelt/dinero.) They all will fulfill their sad destinies.

    • r j p

      She got back at him and his old scrotum, that’s all that matters to her.

    • Bossman

      Mexicans with “Negro blood” are sex machines? I didn’t know that. How interesting! Must be hybrid vigor in action.

      • Martel

        Darker Mexicans tend to live radically different lifestyles then more “conservative” lighter Mexicans who run the middle-class or the near milky white Mexicans who make up the business elite.

    • ElComadreja

      Mexicans hate to admit that Mexicans with negro blood exist.

      • Rhialto

        I guess the Mex/Black mixture would have too much hybrid vigor.

  • Dave West

    Wow. That’s the best BILLIONAIRE, Donald Sterling, could do in terms of women? In a period of a month this woman has transformed from some unknown whore into a Z – list celebrity!

    • And yet, look at who you have as your Disqus avatar.

    • bilderbuster

      Anna Nicole Smith was already famous and a thousand times better looking AND she got her elderly billionaire to marry her.

  • Jesse James

    She needs to be prosecuted for this outrageous charade. Her twisted lies could have ended up sending an innocent man to prison.

    • I wonder where the charges are for her violating California wiretap laws.

  • dd121

    Looks more like rouge than bruising. Oh, no matter, it’s the intent to be a victim that counts, more than the actual act.

    • Jesse James

      After all she is already a victim of her gender, race, ethnicity, sexual proclivity and relative poverty. Somebody should go to jail to make her feel better about herself, we need some wise Latina judge to slap some social justice on top of this mess.

      • dd121

        You’re right, she already has a lot of victim cred. Must keep up appearances though.

    • r j p

      Agreed, does look more like rouge.

    • That was my first thought: She’s applied makeup. She could have at least hired a makeup artist who does the cuts and bruises for Hollywood gore movies. Then it would look real.

      • r j p

        Seems to be almost no swelling and someone hit that hard repeatedly would have some type of cuts to the skin.

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      Yeah, a bruise would be more bluish, purplish, black.

      • dd121

        That’s what I was thinking too, Courtney. Doesn’t even look very well applied. Guess we should have been lawyers.

    • ElComadreja

      First thing I thought. It looks like makeup.

  • BernieGoetzFan

    Lawsuits …!

  • r j p

    Does this woman have a first name or just an initial?

    • IstvanIN

      Yeah, what kind of name is V? Is she one of those aliens?

      • buster

        “V” is short for Venereal.

        • r j p

          Or maybe Vagina?
          …. a hole for rent?

    • Johnny

      I was hoping I wasn’t the only one that was wondering that.

  • borogirl54

    V. Stiviano wants to extend her 15 minutes of fame. I hope that she goes back to where she was before and stay there.

  • OhWow

    See guys? Us Long Island Italians are on your side! There are many old school NYC area white folks who can’t stand liberals and what they have done to our country.

    • Martel

      The objective is to find a way to organize such views.

  • Greg Thomas

    Why does “racism” seem to follow this woman (i’m being generous here) where ever she goes?

  • 4321realist

    “He went on to accuse Stiviano of inventing the attack in order to gain publicity or to ‘keep her name in the spotlight’.”

    She keeps coming up with racial charges against people and this guy thinks she does so, because she wants to stay in the limelight?

    How about she wants to make it appear as if blacks are victims of racism, so she records her boyfriend and makes up bogus assaults?

    She doesn’t even look African.

    Integration has been a horrible mistake.

    • benvad

      Check out her before pictures, she was definitely black.

      • 4321realist

        She’s half-black, but she doesn’t look like the average black.

        I was making the point that this is another “black” who could pass for another race, but insists on supporting all things black.

        • benvad

          I hear you loud & clear my point if you look at her photos before her cosmetic surgery she looked completely black. You can see why she insisted on being identified as black even though she altered her face.

          • 4321realist

            I wasn’t aware she altered her face. Do you have a link to that? I’ll take your word for it, but I’d like to see what she looked like before.

  • anon

    No one shot him to death?
    I think the race issue here is minor. What is not so minor is a fight between a man and a woman who didn’t know each other and no other man, not one who knew her, not one who worked for the bar, not even a random man nearby did a thing about it.
    What’s worse than living in a “diverse” society? A soon to be dead society where men don’t act like men and women don’t act like women.
    In every other culture. In every other time period, so much as touching a woman you don’t know, EVEN IN CULTURES WHERE WOMEN ARE CHATTEL, would be an extreme, high risk behavior that would result in blood.
    I can’t emphasize enough how dangerous such a thing is. The very first group, no matter how sick, whose men are willing to be assertive, will take over without any resistance.
    You might not like what that results in.

    • LHathaway

      I was watching something like that in a movie recently. A girl and a guy are friends, and they are sparring partners in some kind of MMA jjutzu fighing. The girl completely beats the guy in the ring, of course, and then later another man ‘insults’ or ‘disrespects’ his female friend and he gets in a fight with this other/rival man to ‘protect’ her honor. Of the two, why wouldn’t she be the one to protect her own honor?

  • benvad

    She’s a Californian Fame Whore, truly a SoCal mental illness.

  • Pro_Whitey

    I just wish she were old enough to run for the Democratic nomination for President in 2016. I think she’d get the nomination in today’s Democrat party.

  • ChaseLazenby

    I’ve punched plenty of people in the face, none of them ever came out with a what looks like a birthmark.
    And unless this guy is left-handed, id say she just smacked herself in the face with a phone book.

    • Bill E. BOBB

      aren’t they black/blue/ yellowish? looks like she got a sunburn

    • DiversityIsDeath

      Pfft, the transparently conniving bitch simply smeared rouge over half of her face before she had her buddy take the pic.

  • De Doc

    Ms. Steviano must be so desparate to recapture that 15 minutes of fame now bygone.

  • Bill E. BOBB

    sue her blak ass, she has plenty of money

  • Jim

    “His lawyer says she made up the attack ….”

    Wow, a black person fabricates a hate crime attack. What a creative and original idea! I don’t think that’s ever been done before!

    • r j p

      Well, not in the last 30 seconds.

  • Epiminondas

    “Hate Speech” law should be renamed “Scumbag Law”, because only scumbags will attempt to use it.

  • newscomments70

    Here is the description in liberalspeak: “A white male attacks black female, calls her the n-word”. Here is what really happened: An afro-hispanic male hits an afro-hispanic male with mutiliated genitals in a lovers’ quarrel. Liberal media used politically correct racial deceptions to turn this into: “white male attacks black female LGBT”. The obvious lie and left wing propaganda is disgusting. It didn’t turn into a media frenzy becauase no one cares anymore. Liberal media cried wolf too many times.

  • 4321realist

    “Integration has been a horrible mistake.”

    And there are so many facts verifying that only an idiot would believe otherwise.

  • Johnny

    Kinda related, but does this mixaloid have a first name? Am I the only person beyond annoyed that she is constantly referred to as “V.” Stiviano? I try not to read the flood of articles, but can’t seem to avoid the headlines. Nowhere have I seen any indication of what the V stands for. I have an idea what Sterling thought it meant.

  • 4321realist

    For sure.

  • 4321realist

    Absolutely right.
