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):

Heck yes you should sue Jen.

Heck yes you should sue Jen. That is not being a punk anything. That is handling your business with class and dignity. Well as much as you can have on this show. I admit I watch it. We don't have to watch it if it is that offensive. But, I hate for people to think that all Black and Minority Women act in this manner. And smart intelligent watchers know these are a bunch of women willing to do almost anything for money. And Tami, you used to be my girl. But let me tell you something, a person has a right to say what they want to your face or behind your back and you have to be woman enough to let it go. YOU DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TO JUMP ON OR BULLY PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY AREN'T YOU AND THEY DON'T HANDLE THINGS GHETTO STYLE AND LIKE A CHILD. In the olden days we may have fought as women you need to let go and let God. My cousin was a fighter. And she has grown into a woman who knows how to let go. She'd even have you kissing her butt if the old one of her were to come on that show. You are not God and they don't have to kiss up to you as you know once you had that lawsuit against you. I'd tell your ass off and wish you would hit me as I would sue your butt too and take all you have. Unless I decided to bring my bat with me. :)

This show has taken an all time low!!! How repugnant of grown woman to act in such a manner that is befitting a hood rat. Jennifer is taking the right approach, they must not know the pen is mightier than the sword. Shaunie shame on you, money isn't everything, have you no dignity for black woman? Evelyn get yourself into some anger management classes now and stop hating on Jen cause shes showing you you are not a m***f*** factor!

Team Jennifer. Period. She

Team Jennifer. Period. She knows her lane and stays in it. She has every right to press charges, sue, etc... that entire scene was utterly disturbing and made all those silly ass women look like childish, crazed teenagers. Funny...they asked her why did she have to send a letter from her lawyers warning about such activity...and look what happened - those silly rabbits instigated and watched such activity go down. Way to play themselves. I'm done with this show, no way I can continue to watch in good conscience...straight embarrassing as hell. And their mothers for crying out loud?! SMFH

Wow, these ladies have really

Wow, these ladies have really shown their ass. Why didn't Nia call Jen for her keys or try to get in touch with her if she felt Jen was treating her wrong? She is just trying to fit into the show, doesn't take a genious to see that. I would file charges again Nia, Shaunie and VH-1. I'm sure Jen didn't sign up to fight anyone or to get slapped. VH-1 gives them the okay to hit or throw anything and thats just not cool. Jen's new found attitude (she always had it but now it is really on display) is such a turn off. That nonchalant attitude is what got her slapped in the face, she knows how BG's get down. She did nothing but sit there like a dumbie and watch ole girl walk around the table and slap the hell out of her. A funky attitude can get you tossed up. When she speaks its like she's a calulating bitch, can you speed up your speech please. I see no has any ones back on this show, the only one who has every displayed that will be down for someone is Evelyn and that is where her credit stops. Glad for Royce hope all this twitter nonsense will end and her and her boo can get on with their get on......lol Susie, waste of space..

Jen does not owe evelyn nor her friend a explaination to why she has new friends or why she is doing her own thing. She is a grown ass woman!! Danm the fact that she's doing her own thing pisses u off to where u decide to fight her?? Wow...smh.

Oh and Evelyn for her threats should be charged for that alone. Susie is just so happy that her scaryed ass isn't on crazy ass Evelyn's bad side today. Chad really needs to rethink this whole marriage thing chick is off her fuckin rocker! What an example she's setting for her daughter and Chad's daughters too.

Consequences, finally! This

Consequences, finally! This show is just sad! My friends and I don't throw drinks on one another. How juvenile is that! I am glad Jennifer is taking legal actions because the whole thing is so pathetic! We all have the right to make choices that we feel will make us become better in our lives and because she moved on you hate her! Look at how Evelyn, Shaunie, Tammi and Nia are acting. Who wants to deal with that! It's like the mean girls movie. Seriously! Nia, if Jennifer has your keys, ummm, change the locks! It's that simple. Evelyn, and you are a mother on national TV acting so reckless over something that Jennifer said about you on a blog? Get over yourself! If you were truly happy with your life you wouldn't care. Shaunie is so weak and none of them see that she is using them and the drama for ratings! Tammi whipped up on Evelyn and now the two of them are best buds?! Umm, Evelyn slept with your husband, hello!!!! I just think it's sad to see woman of color on TV acting like pure fools! I hope the paycheck is worth your self respect and dignity!!!!!

Team Jen! It doesn't matter

Team Jen! It doesn't matter if she used to act like that a little. She saw the writing on the wall and tried to turn her life around. Why wouldn't she stay on the show making $7,500 an episode and promoting herself and her business. It doesn't mean the show had to get that ridiculous. They all could be shining and promoting themselves but since Shaunie loves the bs between everyone. I can't believe how easily she forgave Ev when that bottle whizzed past her head. VH1 - please donot renew another season!

The way these WILD animals

The way these WILD animals act on National Television is pathetic to say the least. Classy is to stop appearing on a show with low class people for money. Why is Jen doing a press conference for this foolish that she signed up for? It is a waste of money and time. Jen is a press conference really necessary trying to be the bigger person because you are embarrassed now that the episode has aired on National Television? And to think guys REALLY want to marry or be with these animals all for the sake of a dollar is beyond me. WE MUST DO BETTER AS WOMEN and teach our daughters how to be ladies… I watched this show with a friend and I told her we cannot watch this show anymore because my intellect cannot think that low.
