Jennifer Williams: Slapped on Basketball Wives, Slapping Nia Crooks With Lawsuit

by at . Comments

Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams cannot BELIEVE Nia Crooks slapped her in the face on this week's episode, and has slapped her with a lawsuit in return.

Filing a civil complaint alleging assault and battery Wednesday, Jennifer seeks damages from Nia - Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada's personal assistant.

According to Williams, Crooks was "negligent, reckless and careless" when slapping Jennifer across the face during an altercation that took place January 21:

"Someone needs to put a number on this bitch and let her race around the track because she's acting like an animal," Williams said of Crooks on Monday.

The episode documented the fight taking place in a VIP suite at Gulfstream Park racetrack in Florida, in which Williams says she suffered "serious injuries." 

She alleges she "suffered pain, shock [and] mental anguish" after being slapped by Crooks as their cast mates and VH1 crew members tried to break it up.

Williams is seeking unspecified monetary and punitive damages from Crooks.

"Violence used against any woman is wrong," the reality star says.

"I chose to use the justice system to fight back. If I can have a positive effect for women by fighting back with civil litigation it serves an important purpose."

Not everyone sees it her way, however.

According to sources at VH1, the castmates are convinced Jennifer's lawsuit was filed out of spite and desperation to dredge up drama around her character.

In the vain hope of securing a spot on the show next season, match.

TMZ sources also say Jennifer's claim of emotional distress may be BS because she never missed a day of shooting as a result, and this all a power play.

Several prominent cast members have vowed to shun her completely and possibly sit out the upcoming reunion show early next month if she attends.

Also, the Basketball Wives apparently sign a contract stating explicitly:

"Participant expressly assumes the risk of any physical or emotional injuries participant may suffer as a result of participant's participation in the project."

Short story: VH1 will not be held accountable for any bitch-slaps.


What a bunch of LOSERS !....Absolutely NO CLASS at ALL ! The only one there with any sense gets bullied by a raging mad cow and gets her purse stolen while the others condone the actions.


I am sorry that I wasted an hour of my time watching those ignorant, no-class. phony women. They are all ghetto trash and I will never waste another second wasting time watching their trash play out on TV. I feel sorry for any children involved because they have to be subjected to such low-life mothers.


Time to shut down this show, Tammi and Evelyn, these two have no class, to allow such stupidity is crazy. Jennifer and Royce have more class on their finger that these two women. Tammi, why do you act that way on TV? You have children, what a bad example of a so called woman. Evelyn, you will get what you deserve from Chad.
The sad thing about Tammi and Evelyn, they think their looks can buy them class.
Don't get mad ladies, that is what you project on the sceen

I don't like Evelyn she's a chickenhead from the Ghetto Bronx Projects! She slepts around for money & status and she doesn't even use those access to remove her family from the projects or to hook up her friend's teeth or hair!! Ocho Cinco what are you Doing with a nasty ghetto Hoodrat!! You could and had better, younger classy women than evelyn and definately Richer women with their own Dough!! If you marry Evelyn Don't forget the PreNup!!An allowance agreement cause look what Shaunie did to Shaq!! Tried to wipe him clean!!!
