Erin Harris, 42, is the chief marketing officer of James’s liquor brand Lobos 1707, a role that has seen her party with A-list celebrities and appear in the company’s promotions.
She and one of her friends were caught on widely circulated video embroiled in an ugly casino floor catfight with OnlyFans model Danielle Pertusiello, 24, in a clash over her husband Mike Harris, 51.
The scantily-clad women broke out into vicious hair-pulling and slapping on the floor of the Wynn, one of Las Vegas‘s most upscale hotels, earlier this month, and Pertusiello claimed that the booze executive was the aggressor.
‘She hit me from behind,’ she told Fox News. ‘I want people to know that she’s not all about women empowerment. She’s jumping little girls.’
Harris was reportedly in Las Vegas with the basketball star to promote Lobos 1707 during the annual NBA Summer League event, before she erupted at her husband’s secret lover.

Before steering the marketing for LeBron James’s tequila company, Harris reportedly found work with another A-lister in her role as senior vice president of rapper Diddy Combs’ Enterprises.
According to Pertusiello’s version of events, her beef with Harris started four months before their casino brawl when the executive discovered her husband was having an affair with the model.
She claims that Harris hired a private investigator who unearthed the fling, leading to a hostile phone conversation where Pertusiello admitted to sleeping with the married man.
‘I told her if it’s not going to be me, it’s going to be someone else,’ she recalled.
However, Mike Harris denied the affair when contacted by Fox, and claimed to have ‘nothing to do’ with the viral video. ‘Two women got in a scuffle at a hotel. It had nothing to do with me,’ he added.

The 51-year-old is reportedly the CEO of a luxury athletic apparel brand, and his lavish lifestyle is seemingly a reason for Pertusiello’s affection, as she said: ‘He just like, takes care of me.’
Both women were seen in the footage alongside two others, with Pertusiello claiming her pal Amanda Collado, 29, were at a pool party moments before the fight.
When the duo went to the casino at the Wynn to use the bathroom, she says Harris just happened to recognize her, leading her to allegedly charge her.
However, the lead up to the fight was more tame according to Las Vegas police, who said security footage showed Harris and a friend only tapped Pertusiello on the shoulder to get her attention.
Immediately after, ‘all four females start throwing punches at each other,’ cops said.
Two separate videos that went viral on social media captured parts of the brawl, with the first showing Pertusiello – wearing a gold-colored outfit – pinning Harris’ friend wearing a black and white top and denim shorts, on to the casino’s red carpet.
Following an audible slapping sound, the person filming the brawl can be heard exclaiming ‘God damn!’, clearly shocked as the fight gets even more violent.
A bystander tried to separate the women and was able to pin one of them against the wall but Pertusiello came at him armed with a pink-heeled flip-flop.
In the second clip, Harris, wearing cream sweatpants, is shown on a battery scooter parked near one of the casino’s poker tables. She was contorted on her side as she once again fought the woman in gold, with the two locked in a vice grip.

At this point, Harris is almost horizontal on the scooter as she and the woman in gold hold on to each other, slapping and kicking out. The man filming is heard saying ‘dude, this s**t is crazy’ as a crowd watches on.

Pertusiello and Collado were issued citations for disorderly conduct and released.
Police attempted to interview Harris, but when they went to her room, she had cleared out, and did not answer her phone, according to the report.
Pertusiello has been contacted for comment. Lobos1707 does not provide contact information to be reached on its website.
