"Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Tahiry Jose says her life has been derailed after being brutally attacked by a male model ... and now a jury will decide what's what.
Tahiry is suing Carlos Fiasco, whom she says beat her to a pulp and dragged her by her hair backstage at a New York Fashion Week modeling show.
Fashion show production people tell us, Fiasco became irritated at Tahiry because she was acting "too Hollywood."
Tahiry -- who dates Joe Budden -- says the attack was so bad she can't work, but it's unclear what work she lost. It seems she's talking about doing club appearances because she continues to be on the show.
