Let's be honest, you see him standing by the pole waiting for her and when she passes he moves his head as if he is spitting. You can see from the video she put her hands on him first before they went into the elevator. From that scene, you can tell that she knew she messed up by the way she walks and looks behind her. By the time she gets in the elevator, he looks as if he spits again, because she blinks, she is in fighting mode at this point. She then puts her hands up again, he is close to her making her feel threatened. Then you see her charging him, but she is no match for him. He stops her by hitting her like a guy. This wasn't the first time from the looks of things and it won't be the last unless the pair get some help.
Keep in mind, if any woman or man feels strong enough to beat the other down, then consider this, that person will fight back--be it right or wrong. In time, as more and more scenes like this are caught on video, it will be hard for women to cry abuse when they are fighting a man too. Lucky for her, she wasn't representing any business that could stop working with her as a result or sitting behind bars because she hit him too.
Many athletes play rough, love violence, and have a temper. Celebrity means nothing when a man or woman's heart is filled with pain. It's unfortunate but situations like this can break up families.
