The pro-Trump pop star pressing charges against Corey Lewandowski for allegedly slapping her on the bottom told Newsmax TV she is testifying under oath Thursday about the former Trump campaign manager's "boorish, horrendous" behavior.

"I will testify in court [Thursday] in front of a grand jury . . . and moving forward with my life and hoping to inspire others to do the same thing," Joy Villa told "JD Hayworth on Newsmax TV." "Call it out and call the cops.

"The police take these things very seriously, and you file if you think it's something serious. So, I reported it to the law, I leave it in the hands of the law."

Villa, who is running for Congress in Florida, says Lewandowski assaulted her during a "Make America Great Again" celebration at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., last Nov. 28. In her complaint to police, Villa claims Lewandowski slapped her bottom twice as they posed for a picture.

"He had assaulted me, hit me on my bottom, I said 'No, stop it! That's not OK. I can report you.' And he continued to do it again even harder, and then laughed in my face and said, 'Go ahead, I work in the private sector,'" Villa told Hayworth.

"So this was very unbecoming, ungentlemanly, boorish, horrendous action from someone that I only knew by reputation and his work with the president during the campaign. This was someone I never met before.

"I decided to report it to the police at the urging of my family and my husband, my friends who care about me a lot, and I did so . . . Corey did not deny these allegations, which are not just allegations on my part, they are the truth, they are what happened."

Villa – who made a splash at last year's Grammy Awards when she sashayed down the red carpet in a skintight, blue-and-white evening gown resembling Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign logo – said she felt she it was her duty to report Lewandowski.

"I could not deny my conscience. I had to go and say, 'Yes, it happened to me.' How can I preach strength and transparency as a potential congresswoman and to inspire others to move forward and to utilize the law if I don't do so myself?" she said.

Asked by Hayworth about the emergence of a video which depicted Villa's hand on another man's backside months earlier at an event in Las Vegas, she responded:

"Well the main issue here is not whether somebody has done certain things in the past. This is something that personally happened to me that was reported as a crime, and I have filed with the cops."

Lewandowski has addressed the accusation on Fox Business Network, telling host Charles Payne he was entitled to "due process."

Villa told Hayworth, after she announced her candidacy for Congress, "the president actually tweeted me and that was one of the greatest moments of my life. Christmas came early. So there's bene a lot of work to do, there's been a lot of polling and looking to see which district will fit me the best.

"The reason I'm looking at different districts in Florida is because I have homes in different places. I have an apartment in Miami, I've also got a place in Tampa. And I have family, my aunt and uncle, who live in Jacksonville. So, I know Florida very well. It's been my sort of secret getaway.

"I've had a residency there for several, several years, and I was also married in Florida last year. So, I'm very proud to be a Floridian, and I'm looking to see which community will best need my representation."

Villa, 31, is also proud to call herself a card-carrying conservative.

"As everyone knows, I'm very pro-Trump," she said. "I'm very vocal about this; I'm also pro-life, I'm a constitutionalist, I'm pro-Second Amendment.

"And I really want to make sure I win and represent people who also want to turn their area, because it's a flip state, I want them to turn their area red. We have to take it back for 2018 and win in 2020."

She also told Hayworth she agrees with Trump on immigration reform.

Trump says he will support a measure to protect recipients of the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program – undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as minors – in exchange for funds to build his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.

"I believe, like the president said, there is an option for compromise," Villa said. "This is how I have interpreted his words. He is willing to compromise so that the Dreamers can stay.

"But first we need to handle two very important issues. This is border security. We need to make sure our borders are secure, we need to ensure the safety of all of our citizens and legal immigrants who are coming here; and then second is we need to get rid of sanctuary cities. I cannot stress this enough.

"Sanctuary cities are draining our resources, they're draining our economy, and they're doing nothing good. They're actually, in my opinion, they're going against what they were set up to do. As a proud conservative, as a reborn Republican, I know that we need to get rid of those sanctuary cities."

The tattooed singer-songwriter's EP "I Make the Static" rocketed to the No. 1 spot on both iTunes and Amazon following her Grammy appearance, beating out Beyonc�, Adele, and Lady Gaga, and landed her a No. 1 Album in Alternative, No. 1 in Rock, and a No. 12 spot on Billboards Top 200 Albums.

Villa has also acted in such films as "Hobgoblins 2," "Into the Woods," and "The Confidant."
