Fashion Week Ratchetness! Tahiry Involved In Fight Before Teyana Taylor’s Runway Show [EXCLUSIVE]
Now we all know “Love & Hip Hop” is known for being ratchet, but last night Tahiry Jose brought the explosive drama to New York Fashion Week when she was supposed to walk the runway at Teyana Taylor and Toure Design’s show. SMH.
A source spilled the tea to HelloBeautiful exclusively and said that the show was originally supposed to be at Helen Mills Event Space in New York (see that invite below), but thanks to Tahiry’s fight it had to be moved to a whole new venue and the show started two hours late. Here’s how it allegedly went down:
Tahiry, breezed into to the event space much earlier than the 6pm show to get ready to get her model on, but when she found out they didn’t have a dressing room specifically for her our source said she got “diva” and got an attitude (um, note to Tahiry: models at high-fashion designer shows all get dressed in the same space backstage, so there’s that). We’re told she was so irked that she wasn’t getting the special treatment that she started getting into it with a male assistant to the owner of the space. The assistant kept telling her to calm her down and eventually Tahiry threw a drink in his face! After that the assistant allegedly threw a punch which landed on her face and sent her tumbling onto the floor. Tahiry’s two assistants, who are also men, jumped the owner’s assistant, according to witnesses.
We can’t deal! It’s completely disrespectful to throw a drink in someone’s face, but how many times do we have to discuss that there is no excuse for a man to put his hands on a woman? None. EVER.
According to our source, the owner threatened to call the cops and tried to hold Tahiry back until they got there. The reality star managed to escape the venue without speaking to the police.
Now Teyana showed up after the fact, but by then, there was one huge problem for her fashion show: after the melee the owner decided to pull the plug on the event at his venue and the models were associated with the venue so when the venue was no longer an option, neither were they.
Teyana’s team had to scramble to find another location and asked people on the street to model in the show, our source says. The venue switched to 49 Groove Lounge, which was small and caused “notable” guests like Bow Wow and Erika Mena to leave (Mena was overheard saying she was too claustrophobic for the cramped new location).
Anyway, despite the foolery, we’re told Teyana and her team were able to pull it all off and the show went on…even if it was two hours late, in a new venue and filled with random models.
