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.

Kim's ass is too big for that outfit? Kim and her ass are fine!!! Her body is cesolr to a real woman's than this unrealistic and unattractive skinny western standard the main stream keeps try to convince women they have to be. That's why so many women of European descent suffer from needless eating disorders. Their negative body image is sad.

I could not believe what I saw. To get up and slap someone in their face is absolutely ridiculous. Jennifer did not deserve that at all. Evelyn had nothing to do with it and she should not have gotten involved at all. Yes jennifer said I wish you would but that didn't mean she was going to slap her back. She handle herself like a lady. Nia walked in confrontational. Any comments did jennifer made after being slapped was simply made out of anger. Evelyn has a tendency of picking up objects in order to fight. She did it with royce. Kenya and Jennifer. There is no excuse for violent at all And the producers of the show should not have shown that. Kudos to jennifer for doing the right thing. I can't imagine being assaulted like that on TV. Damn what was jennifer to do? Just let Nia get away with it? HELL NO

This show has presented bullying at its worst from one season to the next. Is this what black women have resorted to in order to make a buck. The show should be banned from television. As far as Chad and Eve, he'll eventually realize her character is a problem for his career as he begins to tread on in life. No one will want anything to do with him as long as she is his dog. The marriage will never last.

I feel like this you guys at first were trying to create a positive atmosphere when I started watching the show. Even though you have the money and the lifestyles some of you women and you know who you are are still bittered from breakups and divorces. Stop evelyn stop using Jennifer as an escape goat. You want Chad so be a women and deal with his shit. The blog shit is really pathetic for you to still be carrying on like this. Aren't you a grown ass woman. And Nia pls girl,I know you've heard worst shit than THAT!!!!!!!! Stop the bullshit. Sue Jennifer Sue!!!!!!!! Fuck fighting then you'll be sued.
