Early Sunday morning model Persiana, who also goes by the name “Vegas Aysha” and describes herself on Twitter as a “Video Vixen and Magazine Blesser,” Tweeted about the Sapp situation: “A really close friend of mine was falsely accused of some serious BS and I’m sooooo upset right now! Omg! I will whoop a bitch for him.

Earlier, I had contacted Persiana directly Saturday evening to ask her about the situation and she did not respond. But two hours after my email to her, she posted the Tweet defending Sapp.

Persiana was photographed with Sapp, both giving an obscene gesture, on Friday in Miami. She’s also been pictured with him in the past several months in Las Vegas and New York. In Vegas, she attended the grand opening of Emeril Lagasse’s new sports bar at The Venetian with Sapp.

As she was photographed with Sapp the day before he was accused of abusing a woman in a hotel room at Shore Club, it was reasonable to surmise that she could’ve victim of the alleged abuse. But though she did not respond to my direct attempt to confirm she was or wasn’t involved in the altercation, her Tweet indicates she was not the person who made the complaint against Sapp.
