It’s been more than a year since Tahiry Jose was viciously attacked by a man named Carlos Fiasco during a fashion show at New York Fashion Week. Although the incident may be just a memory to many fans, for Tahiry, it’s still a current day nightmare because of the medical bills she incurred from the attack. Now, Jose is fighting back in court against Fiasco and new reports have revelaed details about her lawsuit.

As previously reported, Jose was backstage at the Angola International Fashion Show, where she was supposed to work as a model, when she got into a verbal altercation with a man named Charles Suggs, also known as Carlos Fiasco, who was working the door at the event. The argument then led to Suggs brutally attacking Jose, who suffered numerous injuries because of the attack.

In the aftermath, Suggs avoided jail time by copping a plea deal to assault. Instead of being locked away behind bars, Suggs was only ordered to complete an anger management program and abide by a restraining order that keeps him away from Jose for the next five years.

Last summer, Jose filed a lawsuit against Suggs, alleging she “still suffers great physical and mental pain” from his attack. Now, according to media reports, details have emerged about Jose’s injuries and the steep medical bills she now has to pay off.

According to sources, Jose’s lawsuit reveals that she suffered a cervical sprain, several disc injuries, wrist derangement, concussion and post-traumatic headaches. Jose claims that her pain became so extreme that she needed an epidural.

Jose claims that she spent $8k for treatment from a neurologist and $5,500 for rehabilitation. In total, Jose claims that she spent $31k on medical fees because of her injuries. She’s now seeking $31k from Suggs, as well as money for damages from the suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.

    I guess there is another side to this story. If this attack was unprovoked he should have recieved more time.
