Kysre Gondrezick is breaking her silence in the alleged Kevin Porter Jr. assault case — asking people to “avoid speculation” about what really happened in a New York hotel room on Monday morning before the Houston Rockets guard was arrested.
The 23-year-old Porter was charged with assault and strangulation on Monday by New York police for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Gondrezick, at the Millennium Hilton New York Hotel.
But a source close to Gondrezick exclusively tells The Post that she has not made a statement to the cops about the incident, and her lawyer further says that what has been reported from her side is “misleading and inaccurate” — without elaborating on specifics.
The source familiar with the former WNBA player told us that Gondrezick, “has not given a statement to [law enforcement], and complained to them that what’s being attributed to her is inaccurate and to stop it. These are not her words.”
Robert Hantman, an attorney for Gondrezick, told The Post exclusively in a statement on Wednesday morning: “Ms. Gondrezick wants to express her deep appreciation for the public’s support and prayers. In regards to our client, much that has been written in the press attributing statements to her are misleading and inaccurate. She has not granted nor released any statements on her own volition.”
The statement further adds, “She asks everyone to respect her privacy and avoid speculation as to what occurred and refrain from disclosing any misleading statements as to Mr. Porter. She asks that the press and all officials refrain from any judgment and speculation on this matter which will be rectified properly and with integrity. Thank you!”
Porter was nabbed around 6:30 a.m. on Monday after a 911 call for an assault at the four-star Millennium Hilton in Midtown, according to the NYPD and police sources.
Cops and sources have previously said Porter allegedly hit Gondrezick multiple times and placed his hands around her neck and that when the officers arrived, they found Gondrezick, 26, with a cut on her face and suffering neck pain.
Prosecutors later said Gondrezick was left with a broken bone in her neck, and that she was found bloodied and bruised by hotel employees in a hall after fleeing the hotel room.
Prosecutors also claim that Porter struck Gondrezick with a closed fist numerous times, leaving her with a gash above her right eye, and added that after being taken to NYU Langone Medical Center, doctors confirmed that Gondrezick had a fractured vertebra in her neck, a court filing said.
Gondrezick’s statement via her lawyer casts doubt on the reported version of events, including her medical condition, though her reps would not comment further about the incident.
Porter, whose full name is Bryan Kevin Porter Jr., was released on $75,000 bail at an arraignment hearing and a judge granted a full temporary restraining order against him.
The NBA star is due back in court on Oct. 16.
His defense attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
An NBA spokesperson previously told The Post, “We are aware of the reports regarding Kevin Porter Jr. The league office is in contact with the Houston Rockets and in the process of gathering more information.”
Gondrezick’s sister reportedly took to Instagram Stories to warn Porter to “count [his] days” after the charges, according to Clutch Points.
Kalabrya Haskins reportedly posted in defense of her sister, “Better hope and pray you’ll be able to ever walk again let alone dribble.”
The couple were out the night before, reportedly, at a New York Fashion Week event.
