Tahiry Jose was rumored to have been attacked viciously while she attended New York Fashion Week, and multiple reports claim a man assaulted her and she had to receive treatment at a nearby hospital as a result.
While the details are still sketchy, it’s being rumored it all began with a shouting match between Tahiry and Carlos Gonzales that turned violent quickly.
Tahiry was slated to walk the runway for Toure Designs and Gonzales was allegedly working with the reality star to prepare her for her appearance.
Tahiry addressed the rumors on her Instagram account and wrote the following:
Thank you ALL for your well wishes. I am both appreciative and grateful to have you on my team and call you #teamtahiry! I am sincerely touched by your outpouring of love. As you may or may not know, on Monday, Sept. 8, I was attacked, assaulted and violated, while in the workplace, by a man. I was beaten because I am woman with a voice and refuse to be disrespected. It is more proof that the violence against women is real and needs to be addressed publicly. The shaming and disrespecting of women/victims of violent abuses must stop. Violence against women must stop; a women’s voice and refusal to be disrespected is not grounds for physical abuse. #iamwoman #myvoicematters More to the point, I am home, healing and surrounded by love. Rest assured, I will continue all my efforts and endeavors with the same faith, determination, passion and spirit I have always possesed. Again, thank you! You are ALL heroes of mine! Love, Tahiry
