Nia Crooks Charged With Battery For Basketball Wives Pimp-Slap

by at . Comments

Basketball Wives star Nia Crooks has been charged with misdemeanor battery for slapping Jennifer Williams on a recent episode of the VH1 "hit" show.

A rep for the Broward County State's Attorney's Office says officials decided to file the criminal charge on April 10, after Williams filed a formal complaint.

If convicted, Nia Crooks faces up to a year in prison.

During the January incident, which aired on last week's Basketball Wives, Nia can be heard threatening to slap Jennifer in the lead-up to the attack.

Jennifer then replied, "I wish you would." Ask and ye shall receive.

Nia's lawyer Marc David Seitles said in a statement, "We will vigorously defend Nia against these charges ... The women on this show executed contracts expressly accepting the risk that a physical altercation could occur."

SIDE NOTE: If that's true, smart move by VH1's parent company.

The lawyer adds, "Given that Jennifer herself has previously instigated fights, to cry foul now is absurd and a desperate attempt for publicity and money."

"We will fight until Nia is vindicated."

Jen is the fake one!!Come on she is trying to play the victom,when she can't shut her mouth and keeps adding fuel to the fire thinking she is all that and forgets where she came from. A few months back she was staying with Nia and now she thinks she above her!!Don't have on Evelyn she is at least keeping it real!! She is cool but she is pushed to the limit when other people open there mouth.Jen says she fights with her attorneys !! She needs to learn how to keep her mouth shut!!As for Shaunie and Tammy they are great


Evelyn needs to spend sometime in jail to slow that @ss down she doing to much Nia tripping about a key change your locks boo and if you can't afford it I'm sure Evelyn can give you an advancement on loan. It erks me how Shaunie tries to separate herself and she's really no better than the company she keeps all drama queens except for Royce. Oh and Susie you talk too much I'm surprise no one has attempted too punch you in the mouth undercover instigator.


EVERYONE needs to take a good look at Shaunie and also Tammie.And grow up. JENNIFER your husband warned you about your so call friends and listening to them know look at what is going on with you. Nia still should not have ever put her hands on you. STOP the violence you all need to grow up. MONEY isn't everything.


You couldn't Payne a million bucks to act like that on or off sends the wrong message.and these women have children.very disgusting and animal.jen didn't change them hoes changed.i think shaunie is disgusting for acting like she's so mature but her sneaky ass love the drama.she layback while the others act ignorant.i wonder what they gon do when nene come to the show.nene just as ignorant as they are.bbw and Ahw shld team up they both shows are about bums who ant got shit trying to be something their not.except for Jen she really has class.jen stay up and dnt b like them bitchez get ya papa girl.and the assistant to everlynn is a broke poor ass jacked up weave ass trashy broad wit no money.mrs.two bedroom lol


I also believe that the reason they hated on Royce so much because they was being bougie.chad is not gonna marry everlynn and if he do it won't last.bitch is already dam near forty come on.chad is a playa shell see


I think that basketballwives make black women look bad they already being looked at as gold diggers now even worse animals.jen net worth is 25million dollars now I know y everlynn and the assistant is hatin.everlynn ant doing shit.jen has her own lip gloss and she's been a successful real estate agent.tami is a bitchass bitch go get ya foodstamps.bum.and Suzie lyps talking bitch u nothing.royce is the realiest one.kenya is crazy sexy cool.keisha is a scary but mature bitch.ans shaunie is fake as the pony tail I bought last night.


Evelyn is a bully. I'm not quite sure of who told her she was about that life. All that fake azz crying wasn't happening when she called royce a bum. But she feels so bad because Jen said Nia didn't have anything but a two bdrm apt. Being slapped...leaves all doors open as far as I'm concerned. Slap me and I might talk about ur mama...Ev needs to slow down..all this tough tony ish is for the birds. I'm from NY too...and that's Not how we do it...Ocho!!! come get ur Girl!!! She lookin' real stupid on TV!!!!


Evelyn is nothing but a athlete whore...isn't the show called Basketball Wives?? So what is she doing on it still?? As for that Nia chick...she was just there to start drama...she ain't even associated with a player and is nothing but Evelyn's puppet


You can take the person, out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto, out of the person.


Evelyn is an animal, so it completely believable that Nia would act the same. Is this the way these woman behaved off camera in their lives before this show? No amount of money would convince me to degrade myself to the point of behaving worse than any animal that's found in the wild. The behavior of these people is beyond disgusting and embarrassing. They both need to go jail for assault.
