TMZ was the first to report the news.

The court documents state that the incident occurred while the pair was filming a scene in which Abernathy, who was 59 at the time, thrust a knife towards Epps, after which the actor was supposed to “grab her wrist and stop her.”

Ramona Singer Sued by Former Employee Who Alleges Star Defrauded Bravo Over Clothes for RHONY

  Ramona Singer Sued by Former Employee Who Alleges Star Defrauded Bravo Over Clothes for RHONY Ramona Singer is being sued by a former employee who alleges the reality star underpaid and mistreated her — and defrauded Bravo by scheming the network into paying for clothes that she either already owned or eventually returned. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a woman by the name of Lisa Taubes says she worked for the Real Housewives of New York City star from January 2016 to December 2017 doing marketing and branding for Singer and her company, RMS Fashions. Singer has not yet responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Taubes’ most serious allegation is that the Bravo star “routinely” instructed her to “engage in unethical practices by submitting false receipts to networks for reimbursement on clothes.” “Specifically, [Singer] asked Ms. Taubes to purchase designer clothes for the filming of Ms. Singer’s show, and instructed [Taubes] to submit receipts to Bravo Cable Network for reimbursement and then asked Ms. Taubes to return the clothes for refund,” states the suit. “[Singer] also instructed [Taubes] submit fake receipts for reimbursement on clothes that she already owned and demanded [Taubes] carry out these tasks.” Taubes claims she was fired by Singer on Dec. 13 in the lobby of Singer’s building, alleging Singer “publicly humiliated” her by pushing her to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Taubes alleges that when she refused to sign the papers, Singer “shoved” her, grabbed her handbag and “overturned the contents” in the lobby. “Several people in the lobby witnessed Ms. Singer’s demeaning conduct and Ms. Taubes, with the assistance of a doorman, collected personal belongings of her overturned handbag,” reads the suit. Taubes is seeking the wages she claims she is owed and is suing for damages in excess of $150,000.
