'Celebrity Apprentice' Alum

Omarosa's Mom Just

Punched Me

EXCLUSIVE

'Celebrity Apprentice' alum Claudia Jordan says Omarosa's mother assaulted her moments ago at the BET Awards ... and claims she has filed a police report, TMZ has learned.

We're told the alleged attack went down at L.A. Live while Claudia was walking the red carpet.

Our sources at the awards show say, Claudia and Omarosa got into a heated verbal exchange -- after Omarosa allegedly called Claudia a "stupid b***h."

The verbal blows didn't stop ... so we're told when Omarosa's mom overheard it ... she walked by and punched Claudia in the arm. We're told event security then rushed in to break the women up and prevented the incident from escalating further.

Claudia then tweeted, "Wow, that awkward moment when you're assaulted on the red carpet."

But Omarosa tells TMZ ... Claudia started it by pushing her 65-year-old mother. And Omarosa says her mom filed her own police report for assault against Claudia. She says, “I am deeply saddened by Claudia Jordan actions at the BET Awards. After all that my family and I been through this year. She should show at least an ounce of decency and respect “

FYI -- Claudia and Omarosa were on "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" together ... and have been known to bash each other in the media.

Specifically Omarosa claims Claudia took pics at Michael Clarke Duncan's funeral (Omarosa's former fiance) which pissed her off. Claudia, in turn, ripped Omarosa, saying she was using the funeral as a press opportunity. 

Happy BET Awards everyone.

tmz staff surely needs a 'ethnic sensitivity' seminar update. if you look at ALLLL the videos in the 'fights' category, it's like 80-90% african american, and when you look at all the 'hook up' videos, it's like 98% "white peaceful 'beautiful' people". you are some RACIST HYPOCRITES of the worst kind. the sneaky 'i have black people friends' kind of racists!! unbelievable.

Like mother, like daughter. Omarosa is a known liar, that's why Michael Clarke Duncan's family is having her independently investigated and is considering suing her.

Team Claudia -- without hesitation. Omarosa is pure vile trash. It is disgusting how she has exploited and used Michael Clark Duncan's tragic death to attempt to further her own agenda.

I don't know who Claudia Jordan is, but I remember enough about Omarosa's character to know that she - and the woman responsible for raising her - are probably to blame.

I call bullsh!t. These 2 are supposedly close friends. Must be a ploy for attention. Don't give them any.

Why do us black people always have to act like idiots??? Do you ever see this stuff at the Emmy's or the Oscars?? Why do we always have to prove white people right???

Omarosa seemed to enjoy that funeral and is still using it as a springboard to get her face in front of a camera.

Omarosa is always the victim. I feel bad Michael Clark Duncan died, but how long does she get to use the pity card? She was such a biotch on the show.
