“Emile was aggressively picking on Dani,” a source said. “He got even more aggressive… He pushed Dani up against a table, and then he put her in a headlock.”
Another source familiar with the situation claimed the actor put the 31-year-old exec in a “chokehold” before assaulting her. The source added, “He attacked her from behind — he completely blindsided her after he’d been s--t talking and was already led away from her once.”
