In response to Villa's warning, Lewandowski reportedly hit back asking her to go ahead and complaint before "smacking her ass" again.

Joy Villa arrives at the 59th annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2017, in Los Angeles. She was a friend's plus-one and said Lewandowski seemed uninterested in being photographed with her - that he rolled his eyes when he believed that was what she wanted.

Villa also revealed to Politico that she confronted Lewandowski, friendly at first and said, "Watch it".

After the photo was taken, Villa said, "He smacks my ass really hard".

"It was completely demeaning and shocking", she told Politico.

Villa made waves a year ago when she wore a "Make America Great Again" dress to the Grammys in support of then-candidate Donald Trump.


The person who witnessed the incident confirmed to TheWrap that it happened as Villa described.

Lewandowski remains in Trump's close circle, and he recently published an inside look at the campaign, titled "Let Trump Be Trump: The Inside Story of His Rise to the Presidency". And NBC's request for comment from Lewandowski was not immediately returned.

Lewandowski was charged a year ago with simple battery after a female Breitbart reporter accused him of violently grabbing her arm during a Trump campaign rally. Video showed him grabbing Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields by the arm during a March 2016 news conference in Florida.

"I said, if you're busy, don't worry about it, we don't have to take a photo. I can report you on sexual harassment". Shortly after the news broke, Trump's campaign released a statement defending his innocence.

"It was the most ridiculous thing I have ever experienced", Villa added. "It was shocking and gross." she said. Villa said she had been enjoying herself at the party.

As allegations of sexual misconduct continue to slam Hollywood and the political world, Villa has a story of her own. But her relationship appears to have soured with the president's former campaign manager.
