Basketball Wives’ Jennifer Williams Slaps Evelyn Lozada’s Assistant Back — With A Lawsuit!

April 19, 2012 09:00 AM by Shayla Perry

It may have taken her a few months, but Jennifer Williams is fighting back after getting slapped in the face by Evelyn Lozada‘s assistant, Nia Crooks. The Basketball Wives star has filed a civil complaint against her former friend, alleging assault and battery. All the details after the jump.

We’re sure that even if you weren’t watch the April 16 episode of VH1‘s Basketball Wives, you could still hear the slap that Evelyn Lozada’s assistant, Nia Crooks planted across Jennifer Williams’ face. (All she wanted was the keys!)

Now, Jennifer is once again taking legal action, filing a civil complaint against Nia, alleging assault and battery, and claiming that she sustained “serious injuries,” and “suffered pain, shock [and] mental anguish” as a result of the January altercation.

“Violence used against any woman is wrong,” Williams tells Us. “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.”

Yes, that and she also wants an unspecified amount of money from Crooks for damages.

Jennifer’s lawyer says that the reality star has also filed a criminal complaint in the state of Florida, where the fight took place.

    I HONESTLY AND TRULY BELEIVE THAT THEY SET JEN UP, WITH THE EXCEPTION SUZIE AND KESHA. IF SHAUNIE, AND TAMI HAD A ISSUE WITH JEN, WHY DIDNT THEY JUST TALK TO HER AT THE FILM SCREENING OR WHEN THEY WENT OUT FOR DRINKS AFTERWARDS. AND NINA SHOULD HAVE TO FACE THE CONSEQUENCES. YOU PUT YOUR HANDS ON PPL, THEY PRESS CHARGES. ITS CALLED ASSUALT. YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I HATE ABOUT EVELYN SHE IS SO FAKE, I SEEN THE CLIP FOR NEXT WEEK AND SHE WAS CRYING SAYING “YOU SHOULDNT JUDGE PPL FOR WHAT THEY DONT HAVE”. BUT WASNT SHE THE SAME PERSON CALLING ROYCE A BUM AND SHE CANT DRESS, AINT THAT THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK!!!
    I’LL STILL WATCH IT SHAUNIE, EVELYN,AND TAMI DONT SHOW UP.THAT MEANS THAT THERE WILL BE LESS YELLING,FOUL LANGUAGE AND RATCHETNESS

    Honestly, I dont think the issues of Jennifer’s blog about Chad being a media whore is the real issue. First of all it is true and she is allowed to say that. Chad is a circus clown who lokes attention! I think that Jennifer is being a true friend and letting Evelyn know that the marriage will not work. Evelyn is so wrapped up in marrying this clown and for what. It will not last long and when he is retired and broke she will leave him! And if her dumb @$$ has a child with him then she will be in court begging for money he will not have because of all of his other kids. I thought Evelyn was the finest female out for at first. But at this time her ignorance on the show and how she disrespects herself and her family is appauling!!! She is a mother and she is setting a standard that her children will have to endure. No true friend will sanction a marriage that allows a man to sleep around!!!!! Evelyn you look like an IDIOT!!! I think she is taking her issues out on Jennifer. Also Nia needs to take her @$$ home! The reason Jen did’t contact you is because you are Evelyn’s friend and that is where your loyalty is. Hence, trying to attack her when she did nothing to you. U both are acting like some ghetto @$$ H0′s fighting over nothing!!! Have some respect for yourselves!

    That slap was not about keys, she had it in for Jen because she felt Jen played her and she wanted to jump on Eve’s bandwagon… Its soooo clear to EVERYONE, blogs that I have come across that eveyone feels the same way. Evelyn is jealous of Jennifers success and her friends in high places… All evelyn has is Chad, she’s closing her store and trying to say its cause she is about to get married, and we ALL know thats bullshit… she has nothing but this show and Chad… Kudos to Jenn for acting like a lady… the only people that side with Ev are children in middle school… and please someone tell her to stop swearing on her daughters life like that…. Ev, Tami(who I used to love and seems to have sold out) and Shuanie are fake as all helllll, GTFOH…

    I agree with Wendy Williams. Grow up you all are adult women and a disgrace. I hope more women quit watching this mess –
    Royce was always be my favorite.
    Shaunie-you need to stand up for what is right – I am sure you would not want your daughter to be slapped over so stupid as crap or behave the way you are taking your show to make$$$$$.

    Jen needs to also sue Shaunie, Evelyn, and VH1 for her physical and verbal abuse. I’m proud of the fact that Jen did not permit herself to sink to the low class level of Evelyn and Tami who both have sewer mouths.

    Boycotting the Basketball Wives of Miami and Los Angeles
    VH1 and its corporate parent, Viacom Entertainment has aired 4 seasons of their Basketball Wives television franchise. The show was initially promoted as an avenue for viewers to grow, learn and discuss the successes and perils of life as a “basketball wife.” However, the show has proven to be nothing more than a set of glossy choreographed boxing matches marked by superficiality and monumental levels of bullying. In the year 2012, where we have a bi-racial president and an African American first lady, we need not be “tragically colored.” The reality series perpetuates the most vulgar stereotypes about women of color particularly, Black women. The show has very few redeeming qualities if any at all. Young people across the nation tune into to the most grotesque illustrations of black femininity. Women well beyond their child-bearing years, cursing, fighting and destroying property. One would have to assume that the show’s wild success presents a complicated problem for thoughtful, scripted and well crafted television. American popular culture has taken on a particular tone similar to that of Ancient Rome. Americans have become a ravenous community obsessed with the “spectacle.” Romans were consumed with their violent gladiators and many Americans are consumed with their tragic reality t.v. “stars.” These questionable activities occur all in the name of entertainment. Hollywood is a beautiful cultural mosaic made mostly out of broken dreams and broken people. But, we refuse to partake in Black cultural degradation and misappropriation. In the year 2000, we thought that the matrix would hijack us little did we know that we would run towards it with open arms. It is beginning to border on exploitation and we are all finally tapping out on this one. We are people of color and we are talented, determined and cosmically powerful. We embody light and love. We do not want to see these types of representations of Black women on VH1 in the form of Basketball Wives Miami or Los Angeles!

    I think that it is a total disgrace the way Evelyn is acting, you are a very beautiful woman but you have a ugly soul, and that makes you ugly inside and out. If someone said something about you on a blog LET IT GO, what are you going to do fight everyone. And your new friends 15 min of fame, it wasn’t worth it (she should have had the locks or tumblers changed by now) This has got to be about more that a stupid blog. Shaunie looks like a queen while you look like a fool. You are a grown woman, jumping across a table.
    EVERYONE PLEASE BOYCOTT this show !!!!!!!

    PLEEZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ do not forget Suzie Q. She gets off of this. It can be easily detected in her face, while she acts as thought she wants everyone to get along. BS……..these fools are her entertainment. Bufoon broads. Evelyn, Tami, shame on Shaunie connecting her name to this garbage. Shaunie could have promoted a much better product.

    I feel Jennifer should be booted off, I don’t feel Basketball wives should be filled full of lawsuits, and since she’s a scary person, she should leave. She can’t stop talking about Evelyn she can’t take a lick, she can’t do anything. Who the hell is interested in that damn lipglooss?

    This show was disgusting this season….no doubt. No one can understand why Evilyn was so mad at Jen. Jen has real class. And is the only one that has nothing to be ashamed of.

    Tami was so wrong to insult Keisha and then get mad at her for being offended. And then because she didn’t respond the way Tami thought she should have, she bullied and intimidated that girl. So wrong.

    But shame to Keisha.
    You have got to learn to stand up for yourself. You don’t have to stoop to their level, but get a backbone. I was embarrassed for you getting up and running away like a scared rabbit.

    Shaunie is the devil.

    Suzy a minion.

    Evelyn is Beezlebulb, completely perverted, manipulative, and in trustworthy.

    Kudos to Kenya. She had Evelyn scared. That’s the way to stand up for yourself. You saw them back down off her. She still owes Shaunie, Suzy, and Eve an a$$ whooping for the fish, and I have a feeling she is planning her revenge.

    Missed you Royce. Good luck.
