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.

As a man reviewing this show, It amazes me how some woman who suppose to have money and financial freedom really act. When I first began to watch this program, it was interesting to see how people with something carried themselves. Tami I felt was a strong black woman with confidence and not afraid to address any issue. jennifer who I felt was a very sweet woman but a follower of evelyns because evelyn's bark. But she should have looked at the way Tami handled evelyn..Tami was no joke and evelyn knew or knows what she can and can not say to tami. Now I'm disappointed at both Tami and Shaunie... disappointed because the two have instigated the drama that has come up between Jen and Tough guy evelyn...Jen you did the right thing... I'm from New Jersey as well and all I can say is show your classyness.. You don't need the drama.

This show is a huge disappointment to see grown women acting like children or maybe worse then children. Jeniffer should sue although she didn't seem to mind the bulling when it wasn't directed at her which proves that you can't trust the devil...take it off the air please

I am disappointed in Shaunie and Tammi. That was neither the time or place for to address any personal problems with a so called friend. Please tell me why this Nia lady had to come with her hurt feelings. She could have ask to talk to her in private. That would resolved all of that. The whole idea was to help Evelyn be ignorant. I hate to wish ill on anyone but, she need to fall off a table one of these times. Her old 40 year old behind would have thought about Jennifer Williams every timme she wash her sore behind. She needs to take it to the law. They were wrong and if you take your problems to a place like that, don't be surprise if someone hurts your feelings back. It is not what Jenn said about her that matters but how she feels about herself.
