Villa claimed that when she half-jokingly told Lewandowski to watch it and warned him that she could report him for sexual harassment, he simply replied, "Go ahead, I work in the private sector".
A black singer and Donald Trump supporter has accused her former campaign manager of touching her butt inappropriately.
Villa said that she hesitated to go public with the allegations against Lewandowski in part because she anxious about retaliation given the former Trump campaign manager's prominence and connections in the president's circles.
"I'm wearing this silver suit and stretchy trousers, and after the photo, he smacks my ass really hard", Villa told Politico.
"It was completely demeaning and shocking", she told Politico.
The person who witnessed the incident confirmed to TheWrap that it happened as Villa described.
She said she called him out on his behavior and he responded by saying he could get away with the unwanted contact, then slapped her again. And NBC's request for comment from Lewandowski was not immediately returned.

A Trump-supporting singer revealed Friday that the President's former campaign manager slapped her on the behind at a holiday party last month.
In 2016, Lewandowksi was arrested for assault after grabbing a reporter's arm at a campaign event, but the charges were later dropped. "He tweeted: "@MichelleFields you are totally delusional.
Villa's run for office has been supported by both Ivanka Trump, who Villa said offered words of encouragement at a Christmas party this year, and President Trump, who tweeted "good luck" to Villa in October "on her decision to enter the wonderful world of politics".
All things considered, he's back in the news once more.
Villa also claimed to be terribly disturbed by the whole confrontation and said that she understood how every woman must feel after being sexually harassed. "It was shocking and gross".
Lewandowski was Trump's first campaign manager, but he fell out of favor with the president prior to the Republican National Convention and was dismissed as campaign manager in June.
