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."

Who is this Nia person? No one knows her but her ghetto boss Evelyn. She needs to crawl back under that rock in Harlem where she came out of with those goodwill looking outfits. If you want to get famous that is not the way to do it booboo. Get a life aside from beeing LOOSE Evelyn's assistant
