Joy Villa - who wore a "Make America Great Again" dress to the Grammy Awards past year - claims Corey Lewandowski smacked her "really hard" on the rear as the pair posed for a photo at an invite-only party, according to a report. "It was completely demeaning and shocking", Villa recalled. A friend introduced her to Corey Lewandowski, who served as Trump's campaign manager until he was sacked in June 2016, and the pair took a photo together.
Villa said Lewandowski slapped her buttocks, and after she told him to stop, Villa said he slapped her again.
"He said, 'Go ahead, I work in the private sector, '" Villa, 31, said.
"Here's the photo of @CLewandowski_ seconds before he slapped my ass, I told him to stop, and then he did it again", she wrote.
Villa's claims were backed by a friend who witnessed the exchange but chose to stay anonymous as the former Trump campaign manager still carries influence with the president.

Politico said that Lewandowski did not respond to multiple requests for comment on Friday. I never touched you. Shortly after the news broke, Trump's campaign released a statement defending his innocence. "As a matter of fact, I have never even met you". But he remains close to Trump; last week, he attended a meeting on political strategy in the Oval Office.
Singer Joy Villa-who gained widespread attention for her pro-Trump dress at the Grammy's-has accused Cory Lewandowski, President Trump's former campaign manager, of sexual misconduct. It was the most ridiculous thing I have ever experienced. Villa made her political ambitions clear on October 27, when she announced she was considering running for Congress as a Republican from Florida or New York City. "It was shocking and gross".
"I'm sure she's just delusional & he didn't touch her".
Villa added that she was motivated to tell her story by other women sharing their stories of harassment.
