Raquel Leviss was “never beaten” by Scheana Shay, a lawyer for the latter “Vanderpump Rules” star claims.
“This entire case is a fabrication by a known liar and cheater who has betrayed everyone close to her,” Neama Rahmani, president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, told Page Six in a statement.
“Scheana never hit Rachel, period,” the former federal prosecutor continues, referring to Leviss by her legal name.
“The supposed dark markings around her left eye have been there for months.”
Confirming Page Six’s Thursday report that no one on the “Pump Rules” cast is speaking with Leviss, Rahamni says, “Neither Scheana nor any other cast members want anything to do with Rachel going forward.”
The lawyer believes the judge has “only heard a one-sided account” of the alleged altercation so far.
“And we look forward to presenting the full and true story at the March 29 hearing,” Rahmani concludes.
A representative for Leviss did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
On Tuesday, Leviss, 28, filed for a temporary restraining order against Shay, 37, after facing backlash over her affair with Tom Sandoval.
The former party queen has claimed that Shay punched her in the face during their “heated confrontation” in New York City over her affair with Sandoval, 40.
Leviss shared shocking photos of her alleged injuries in court documents obtained by Page Six on Wednesday.
Leviss claimed that Shay had punched her in the eye after she confessed to having a “month-long affair” with Sandoval while he was dating Shay’s best friend Ariana Madix.
Leviss’ alleged black eye appeared to be visible when she was photographed out and about on Wednesday.
However, the alleged cut to Leviss’ eyebrow documented in her case against Shay did not appear to be visible.
Friends of the “Pump Rules” cast have particularly cast doubt on Leviss’ claims, stating that she had a black eye before traveling to the Big Apple with Shay.
“What you’ve done is disgusting enough. But LIE about a black eye?” Singer Tori Keeth wrote in a Wednesday Instagram Story post, “Come on Raquel, we’re not stupid. You are.”
Keeth added, “You’ve had this black eye since BEFORE you were ‘apparently’ beaten.”

In a follow-up Story post, the musician slammed Leviss for “(deciding) to fk with Scheana’s life,” calling the reality star’s claims “sad attempts to take the heat off (her) despicable actions.”
Keeth also urged Leviss to “throw away” what she perceives as the “victim card.” “We all see right through you,” she wrote. “You really think you know someone.”
Meanwhile, a source close to Leviss previously told Page Six, “She didn’t have a black eye before, nor did she have a cut above her eye. There is a doctor’s note attached to the TRO (temporary restraining order) papers.”
