'Celebrity Apprentice' Alum

Omarosa's Mom Just

Punched Me

'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.

I just watched the video of her explaining the "incident' and I believe the whole thing is BOGUS!
This is an old fashioned publicity stunt. Claudia IS cute though; she is just looking for some press time, and got it. Thanks to TMZ! 5 minutes of fame, TSK TSK, not even 15! Get some REAL talent, both Y'ALL!

Omarosa and her mother hate Claudia because she is such a beautiful woman. CJ and Oma were cool at one time, not close friends but cool. Before they did Celebrity Apprentice they had a mutual agreement not to clown eachother or throw eachother under the bus. You know, not to get rachet on national TV. IMO, CJ kept up her end but Omarosa just had to create drama and show out. And to think she is a Reverend now. smh

That being said, I've been down with CJ since the very first show on Foxxhole radio, Reach Around Radio and whatever the next radio show might be. But, if CJ took inappropriate photos at Michael Clarke Duncan's funeral, she should take the high road and apologize. IDK if Omarosa was faking her love and sadness at his passing but either way I could see where she would see someone taking photos a her fiance's funeral as disrespectful.

As for the BET situation, there are dueling police reports so unfortunately, unless there is a photo or tape or honest and neutral eye witnesses that comes forward, it will be she said vs she said. Usually in this situation the first one to file is the one who is telling the truth but not 100% of the time.

CJ is not a big celebrity but Omarosa is/was never a celebrity which doesn't make sense why they would have been on All Star Celebrity Apprentice. There were much bigger names on the show. Maybe the Donald has a thing for one or both of them? Just saying.

I thought Omarosa was married to Donald Trump.
Obamaomarosa will do anything to remain relevant even if she has to fabricate a story.
