Jennifer Williams Readies PRESS CONFERENCE To Announce Lawsuit Against Nia Crooks For SLAPPING HER UP On "Basketball Wives'

This ish just gets more trifling.  After Jennifer Williams suffered a big slap to the face--literally--by Evelyn Lozada's good friend/assistant Nia Crooks on a recent episode of "Basketball Wives," Jen kept to her word and filed a lawsuit.

 

Now she's having a press conference in New York tomorrow to discuss the criminal & civil court filings.  Deets inside...

On a recent episode of "Basketball Wives," Evelyn's assistant and friend, Nia Crooks, offered up a huge slap to Jen's face during a heated argument while the ladies were on a trip to the horse races.  So huge that Jen is filing a few lawsuits against her citing assault and battery.

Lucid Cosmetics owner Jen said previously, after this slap was seen months ago on a super trailer for this season of "Basketball Wives," that she would be taking legal action against Nia R. Crooks.  And based on the press release from her attorneys we just received, she's keeping that promise.

Thursday (4/19) at 11am, at the law office of Rubenstein & Rynecki in Brooklyn, Jen & her civil attorney Sanford Rubenstein Esq will address the civil lawsuit filed in Supreme Court New York County.  Her criminal attorney, Sabrina Puglisi, will address the status of the criminal complaint filed by Jennifer in the state of Florida.

Jennifer's attorney, Sanford Rubenstein, stated about the suit which will be filed both civilly and criminally:

"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".

Assault and battery of any kind is wrong and the lawsuits are indeed warranted.  But do we need a whole press conference about the filings though?  I mean, really.

Check out video of the slap heard around the reality tv world from the April 16th episode below (35:00 minute mark):

Good for Jen! I don't

Good for Jen! I don't understand why people are acting so indignant about Jenn having a press conference. She got slapped and humiliated on national tv, so she has every right to have a press conference to announce that she is fighting back via the justice system. She is blogged about, tweeted about, etc...yet to take formal means to communicate is a problem? Makes zero sense. Anyway, seeing Jen get attacked was really disgusting. It was terrible when Eric did it and it's even worse for Nia to do it. Who Jen feels the need to be friends with or not be friends with does not warrant violence. So many of these shows glorify bullying, physical attacks against each other...so I have to applaud Jen for holding Nia accountable through the court system.

Oh pulease. It's time for

Oh pulease. It's time for Jennifer to part ways with Basketball Wives. Up until now she was down for the get down. While she has never thrown hands or had them thrown at her she has been a mean girl on the show and has started plenty of mess that Susie and Ev finished for her. In the first two or three seasons all the mix ups Susie and Ev had were on Jen's behalf. Now she's above it all? That is all well and good, but that means she needs to go off and do other things. I have no respect for her. And the girl didn't sneak her. She walked right up to her and slapped the hell out of her.

I don't think you have it

I don't think you have it right Mrs. Rance if you watched the show last year the problem with Evelyn and Susie last year was because of Susie running her mouth about something that Evelyn did on Las Vegas while dating Chad ) go watch the clip on VH1. lol.

Evelyn set the assistant up.

Evelyn set the assistant up. She knew Jen was about to sue her azz.. That's what the dumb heffa gets. So much for hanging with trash. Pay up Boo Boo! Whatever $5 you made will be in Jen's checkbook soon. *laughing at this cow*

I just don't get why the

I just don't get why the assistant was so upset about some damm keys that Jen probably don't even have anymore. Her broke ass could have just gone out and brought a new lock for $20-$30. Now look at her ass, about to get sued. I bet her ass is wishing she just changed the locks now..dummy!

Shaunie set her up they went

Shaunie set her up they went in the suite with the sole purpose of attacking Jen,why would you have Eve and Jen in the same scenes ,Shaunie knows they don't get along. You see Royce don't shoot No scenes with Eve because they don't like each other,so why keep putting Jen in danger,because Shaunie and vh1 just want their rating to keep going up.Shaunie is a producer on the show she knows what is going to happen.her wack ass want to act like she don't know whats going on.

Jens just mad bc she got pimp

Jens just mad bc she got pimp slapped. Had she knocked that ratchet hamburger meat faced b*** out there'd be no lawsuit. And it was hella obvious that Evelyn was looking for a fight. You mad at Jen for clowning a 2 BD appt yet you clown women who don't have red bottoms in every color?! Evelyn is a disgrace to Latinas. Shows how many self loathing black man will marry trash just bc shes not black and has straight hair. A black girl acting like that would be labeled too ghetto and promiscuous to marry
Lisa's picture

So if a Black man marries a

So if a Black man marries a Latina he hates himself? You birds are always squawking over who brothers want to marry when it's not a black woman. Evelyn is trashy but she is not a reflection on an entire race of people any more than black trashy people are a reflection on all blacks. I think black women like you are just bitter because some black men want other types of women. People can make choices on what they find attractive why do you take it so personally? Maybe if you fixed your attitude a man would choose you. Just a thought.

I'm over any show that

I'm over any show that features grownnnnn(nnnn) black women fighting (physically or otherwise) like chickens in a cockpit like they were still teeny boppers. I'm sorry but watching women tear eachother down and whore around isn't my idea of entertainment and if that is entertaining to its audience, it's probably because the audience relates to them and condones or participates in such behaviors themselves and that's unfortunate. All their shenanigans are strictly for ratings and shock value to increase their value and salaries on the show, and people actually get sucked into the nonsense while they're laughing all the way to the bank. I won't be bamboozled with the masses. #pathetic

I think she's doing the right

I think she's doing the right thing. It's one thing to be loud and ignorant on tv. However, when you put your hands on somebody you should be held accountable. I couldn't go around slapping people so she shouldn't be allowed either. Now Evelyn should shell out some money to help her trifling ass assistant. These women act like animals.

THis girl sounds like a

THis girl sounds like a complete idiot!! Who does she think she is? I don’t care what the situtation is, you do not have the right to put your hands on ANYONE!! Regardless of what they say to you or about you! And how come she gets to insult Jen and call her out her name but Jen is not allowed to get smart with her…B*tch please!! Have several seats-/-/-/! If Jen doesn’t want anything to do with her get over it, why would she especially seeing how she is Besties with Evelyn and they are no longer on terms! And the fact that this woman seems to be a SAVAGE and I’m sure Jen knows that from hanging out with her. Look how she’s putting Jen’s business out in the street, talking about who she hooked up with and what not…why would Jen want anything to do with this heaux?? Complete Savages = Evelyn & Nia!!

First things first. Nia

First things first. Nia Crooks should have never raised her hands to Jennifer Williams. If someone does not speak to you anymore or like you anymore, so what!!!!!, who cares!!!!!! move the hell on. Evelyn is the cause of all this Drama. If I was Jennifer, I would never have spoken back to Evelyn. It is ashame to see that you are so willing to beat up an another, especially if that person was once recently your very own bestfriend! So yes!!! Nia Crooks and Evelyn, both should get their non mother f**king factor asses a big, fat lawsuit.........I hope Chad never marries her dumb ass.
