Basketball Wives Jennifer Williams held a press conference in her lawyers office yesterday to announce her intent to sue Evelyn Lozada’s assistant Nia Crooks for smacking the snot out of her and making her look like an idiot “emotional distress”. And as a result, the other ladies are threatening to boycott the Basketball Wives Reunion Show if Jennifer goes through with her lawsuit. 

The moment the altercation between Jennifer and Evelyn’s assistant Nia Crooks aired, it was reported Jennifer Williams filed a lawsuit for assault and emotional distress. Because of her lawsuit, other cast members are refusing to shoot the upcoming reunion show.

Jennifer’s statement to the press explains:

“This civil complaint is being filed by Jennifer Williams to hold Nia Crooks accountable civilly for the assault and battery which took place on the episode of Basketball Wives which aired the evening of April 16th 2012. A criminal complaint filed by Jennifer Williams is presently under investigation by the office of the States Attorney in Florida”.

According to Jennifer’s suit, she claims she was hurt badly when Nia popped her. The rest of the cast doesn’t believe her. They’re convinced Williams filed the suit to stir up some drama around her character on the show. The cast thinks Williams is trying to create a storyline around her character so show producers won’t replace her.

Jennifer’s claims of emotional distress are questionable as the cast claims she never missed a day of shooting after the attack.

Interestingly enough, a clause in the BBW contract also states:

“Participant expressly assumes the risk of any physical or emotional injuries participant may suffer as a result of participant’s participation in the project.”

We’ll have to see how this plays out. Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay tuned.
