New York City event planner Lauren Pazienza's mom wrote a $500,000 check Friday to bail her out of jail after she was busted for allegedly shoving an elderly Broadway singing coach resulting in her death, according to court records obtained by Fox News Digital.

Pazienza, 26, was arrested last week for what authorities called the unprovoked attack on 87-year-old Barbara Gustern in Chelsea. A judge ordered her held on $500,000 cash over $1,000,000 bond.

Caroline Pazienza, a personal trainer, forked over a $500,000 check from Apple Bank at Rikers Island Friday morning after her daughter spent three days locked up at the infamous city jail, according to a bail receipt.

"That money is not only her immediate family's money – many people participated in raising those funds," said Pazienza's criminal defense lawyer, Arthur Aidala.  "It shows the support Lauren has from her family and friends."

Her father, Dan Pazienza, runs a successful cesspool service company, and her parents live in Port Jefferson, an upscale suburb in Long Island. Aidala previously said that Pazienza is not the spoiled rich girl that has been portrayed in the media.

An eyewitness told police that Pazienza strode across the street, allegedly called Gustern a "b----" then pushed her so hard she smacked her head against the pavement, a criminal complaint says.

Pazienza did not know the victim, who suffered a serious brain injury and died days later, according to Manhattan prosecutors.

She was slated to marry fiancé Naveen Pereira, an employee at Microsoft, in June. It's unclear if the couple still plans to go through with the wedding.
