Insiders said the viral clip did not capture the full confrontation, which began when a group of four female ‘Queers for Palestine’ supporters allegedly began taunting Kaye, who is Jewish, as she returned from dinner.

Kaye is said to have told the group they were “on the wrong side,” prompting the women to gang up on him, the source said.

“You could say he started it, but he didn’t,” a source told DailyMail.com.

“He just said ‘you’re on the wrong side’, and then the four of them came up to him and threw liquids on him. He didn’t know what the liquid was. They were shouting insults at him.

“He fell or got hit in the chest and I don’t remember that.” But she ended up on the sidewalk with the four of them on top of her.

Kaye was filmed delivering a brutal direct punch to an unnamed woman in Brooklyn, where she also lives in a four-bedroom townhouse in expensive Park Slope, valued at just over $4 million.
