“I am fundamentally not OK with what happened,” Daniele recently shared about the fight. “It was insanely painful and absolutely terrifying.”

In the investigative documents, Daniele revealed that she was hesitant to pursue a case against Emile because of the nature of her work and his public image.

Emile said about the incident, “She started kind of causing a ruckus and I sort of started getting intervening and this happened. I don’t think it was much more than that to be honest…. I think she had a go at me and I probably defended myself.”
