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.

MS. Jen you should press charges, no WOMAN deserves to be hit by a man or a broad. A woman w/ class & dignity would not stoop that low! W/ that being said HIT that broad where it hurts, not the face the wallet! & Niya IF your a smart broad you will have Evelyn pay for those fine you about to be SLAPPED with, since you did it all to impress her. Evelyn you got it, YOU been F'IN ballers for years for the dollar!!! Jen you have CLASS, but remember you can take a broad to school, but you can't teach her class:))) FIND YOU SOME CLASSY FRIENDS.

Shaunie is a business woman using the opportunity to exploit the ignorance of a few previously broke "A" bitter babes.....Shaunie is an opportunist that seems to forget that she has to reap just what she sows and she has a daughter too...and dont think that your financial status will make your daughter immune to exploitation because there is no big I or little you in the word of God so she has to recieve just like she gives just like the rest of us....I have no respect for Shaunie and I think that all of her butt kissing guests are ignorant. This show should be called "Basketball Players Used Goods"....Jennifer is the only one that I have tolerance for. Use your status to do a positive show for our youth to watch...and not music videos please....

I am very happy that Jen is suing them two hoodrats for the little money that they do have. Nia, I just don't get it! Why can't you just ask for them damn keys back, instead of putting your hands on Jen? Evelyn do need to get a fucking life and stop hating on Jen. Face it, Evelyn just mad because her ex- friend had told the truth about that so called soon to be husban of her's. Evelyn, know damn well that she is not happy with Chad. I'm very proud of Jen for staying as a classy lady and not feed into the drama. I hope that she stay away from them evil witches quote: Shaunie, Tammi, Evelyn, and Nia. My favorite is Royce, Keshia, and maybe Kenya. Suzie, is a shit starter, I'm not feeling her right now.

I'm GLAD JEN, ROYCE,& KESHA DISTANCE THEMSELVES FROM THAT BS. & 1more THING OTHER THAN SHAUNIE,JEN & that NUT JOB KENYA WHO THE HELL ELSE WAS A WIFE? The show SHOULD BE CALL BASKETBALL JUMP OFF's & babies mamas behaving badly. I Didn't include Tami as a wife on purpose because she didn't need a a penis she's already got one. What trash this show has turned out to be........ Truly disappointed.

So basically, you get what you get what you get by participating on this show. Now,I agree with Jen's stance of trying to let this go. But after being continously attacked by these heifers, I would be swinging back. There is just so much a person can take. And I know this woman is tired of having a target on her back. And as far as Nia being upset by Jennifer's behavior, she may be upset with that, but you best believe that some poison has been stirred into that pot by Evelyn. I know it makes for good TV, but there should be another woman placed on the show who will not put up with Evelyn's BULL. ...she should get paid extra for have that job too.

I am sure that Jennifer had to wait until the episode aired to file her lawsuit because their contract most likely prohibits them from divulging what happens in an episode before it has been seen by the public.
