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):

I AGREE!!! Make as much noise

I AGREE!!! Make as much noise as you possibly can, Jen!! Suit her butt and hit her pockets!! She was so pressed to jump in on the beef of her BFF Evelyn, now learn the downside of being a follower!!!

Like others have

Like others have said...filing a lawsuit is an appropriate, adult response to being assaulted. Staging a press conference to announce it is stupid. Most people will watching will say 1) you got what you deserved or 2) you should've whooped that azz. A small minority will sympathize after this complete and utter waste of airtime.

I'm all for Jen pressing

I'm all for Jen pressing charges. Nia should be held accountable for her actions/ assault and I applaud Jen for not being joining the ranks of those ignorant indignant ass women by fighting on NATIONAL TV!! Keep your class, don't show your ass, Jen! Kudos for handling yourself like a lady. That said...Jen needs to have a seat about this press conference. Sweetie, who exactly do you think you are? FLOTUS? No one cares about you THAT much.

#teamoveranyshow that

#teamoveranyshow 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

This incident occurred in January! Why is she holding a unnecessary press conference in April? Oh yeah, the timing makes more sense now. All about publicity. These girls are sooooo thirsty! Any media who shows up to this mess should re-evaluate their standards. I'm sure MTO will be in the house because CNN or any other reputable organization certainly will not be!

So you agree with the comment

So you agree with the comment Jen made about if you don`t have it like she has it (as far as money and material possession ) that you ain`t S&$t ? Cause in the city I live in saying some mess like that is enough to get you a open hand smack to the face. Jen with her slow talking changing her voice to sound more like Evelyn needs to have several seats. She acts as if she is better than everyone else and she is not. You don`t go around saying things about ppl that have been your friend for years and then not be woman enough to back it up. Jen just like everyone is trying to stay relevant so her lip gloss will sell so please know she is playing a part in keeping this crap going between her and Evelyn.

"comments" and actually

"comments" and actually slapping someone are entirely two different things. It's called "anger management". You need to know what you can and CANNOT do. She had no right to hit her. Nene and her crew sat their and talked (argued) and no one put their hands on anyone else.

Congratulations Jennifer!

Congratulations Jennifer! Those birds are crazy for thinking just because the cameras are rolling they can just do anything. The entire show is really out of control. You have other businesses and should really consider moving on like Meeka. Those hoodrats are definitely below you now. Very proud to hear that you took legal action. Evelyn and Tami will sit their behinds down now. Sidenote------------------------> very glad that Evelyn HAD to sell the shop. It was a contrived effort to boycott that joint. People don't spend money with ungrateful shop owners. Next time, she'll be calling off the wedding. Idiot!

Dear Jennifer, you've

Dear Jennifer, you've embarrassed yourself enough. You let your jealous hag of a bestie break up your marriage, had drinks thrown at you by your husband, acted like a catty schoolgirl, been slapped upside the head ALL FOR THE TV CAMERAS AND A PAY CHECK, had your goodies plastered all over the interwebs and now you're going to have a press conference to file an embarrassing lawsuit? Your parents must be so proud.

How is she going to file a

How is she going to file a lawsuit against husband for throwing a drink in her face, when you can clearly see on the tape she threw a drink at him first? That makes a WHOLE lot of sense. Although I think throwing drinks is disrespectful, I feel she got what she deserved for throwing a drink on him. And I don't want to hear the "She's a woman" BS because that's no excuse, women have to start owning their stuff as well.
