Reality star says she's still out of work following last year's attack

"Love & Hip Hop" star Tahiry Jose is taking action against a man who attacked her last September at a New York Fashion Week show.


The New York Daily News reports Jose is suing Charles Suggs, the man she says repeatedly punched and dragged her down to the ground by her hair while at the Angola International Fashion Show in Chelsea. Jose's lawyer says Suggs "was being extraordinarily nasty to two of Tahiry's staff members" and when she confronted him, he snapped.




According to court documents, it took "six or seven people" to pull Suggs off Jose and he allegedly tried to attack her again inside the venue.


Jose claims she's been unable to work since the attack and says she "still suffers great physical and mental pain." Her injuries included damage to her spine and jaw, as well as herniated discs.


She is suing Suggs and the show organizers for damages.
