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.


I decided after second show of this season that this was my last season with all these non-basketball wives. Jen needs to whip all their stupid asses and sue all their old childish asses. Love you, Jen




Jen should press charges on them two witches!


I think that Jennifer just sat in that chair waiting ,looking like a dumbass on purpose, just waiting to get slapped so that she could sue. I mean really if you are not going to defend yourself, duck under the table or something. It would have been a sure plan of escape from Nia and Evelyn, Ha! But noooo, "Everybody was kung foo fighting", Ha Ha or trying.....


good for you jenn, they all need to stop it. they all have daughters it's a disgrace to any woman to see another woman act like that. it is never OK to hit anyone. bulling is wrong and i feel like this show is saying bulling is OK.


I'm so done with this show! They took it on a new low. HOW DOES GROWN A$$ WOMEN ACT LIKE HOODRATS. Shaq is better off. Jennifer continue to be classy! I would have knock that b out, Jennifer press charges against all of them. Jennifer needs to sue Shaunie and the rest of the low-life, all I can say is "BOYCOTT".


Way to go Jen. I hope they rake Nia over the coals. Maybe Eve will have to give her a raise to pay for that slap. She instigated it anyway.


I think everyone should show their unhappiness by boycotting the show! Shaunie, Evelyn and Tami will WIN if we continue to watch this craziness.


In the first place who wants to be slapped? How is Jen filing a lawsuit out of spite? that was assault and battery and Jen has way too much sense to stand up there and fight Nia. I on the other hand would have defended myself to the fullest first then filed charges.


Eveyln is in lack of class she's so ghetto tammy's her flunky and shawny is a pimp
