"BasketBall Wife" Jennifer Williams Defends Her Decision To SLAP BACK With A Lawsuit

​ ​ ​ ​

After catching hate and criticism--even allegedly from the VH1 staff who accused her of being just as guilty for the drama--Jennifer Williams posted a blog today defending her decision to slap Nia Crooks with a lawsuit.

 

Check out what she had to say about her lawsuit publicity, owning her businesses right out, and that comment about Nia's 2 bedroom apartment....

After her big press conference last week, folks were slamming Jen left and right accusing her of going the thirsty publicity route.  Since she went above and beyond filing a lawsuit just to gather sympathy.   Jen took to her blog today to vent about the rumors she turned her back on Nia (who she calls "the assistant") at one point, and to defend her decision to file that lawsuit after Nia assaulted her on a recent episode of VH1's "Basketball Wives".

Here's the blog in full:

And the BS continues… I honestly could not stomach to watch last week’s episode. I had lived through the craziness and to relive it was just too much for me. But I would like to clarify a few things. First up, I never had an issue with “the assistant” up until that day. At one point, we were good friends. We went out together, went to dinner, stayed at each other’s houses and shared plenty of good times and laughs. There had been some incidents leading up to why I started pulling away from the friendship but I don’t feel the need to blast that information. However, the most important reason why I eased up on the friendship is because she started working for someone who refers to themselves as my “enemy.” To me being good friends would just cause the situation to be messy so I rather fall back. No love lost and I like I said, I didn’t have any issue with her until she put her hands on me.

Ok now let’s get to the foolery… AGAIN!!! I just find it so unfortunate someone I once called a friend has no respect for me and felt the need to violent me physically. So of course after you completely disrespect me by putting your hands on me, my mouth is going to get reckless. I am not happy for the things I said to her but I was caught off guard and left in a vulnerable state. The 2-bedroom apartment comment got taken way out of context. I live in a 2-bedroom apartment so why would I look down on her for that. My point was don’t act like I lived with you when you live in a 2 bedroom apartment with a roommate. There would be no room for me and all my stuff that barely fits in my 2-bedroom apartment in NJ. The whole attack against me was pointless. Okay, we aren’t friends no need to fight about it let’s all be mature adults and move on. People come into your life for a reason, season or a lifetime. I wish it didn’t have to be this way, it makes me sad but that is life.

I did what I felt was right by filing a police report and having my attorneys handling the situation. I am an entrepreneur and a mature adult. Who fights at this age? I was taught to let the authorities handle criminals. Having graduated with a degree in Political Science and a concentration in Pre-Law, I am fully aware of my legal rights and the justice system. If you put your hands on someone, there will be repercussions. End of story…

For the record, I have changed. I am striving to be an independent woman and I am building a future for myself. I have zero time or tolerance for BS. I am not sitting around waiting for a man to take care of me. Lucid is 100% mine; I built it from the ground up. No licensing deal or I am a paid spokes model. I don’t sit around and knock what my cast mates are trying to do business wise. Be a leader and not a follower, no one was thinking about the cosmetic industry until way after Lucid. At the end of the day, I find it all unfortunate that I am the constant topic when it comes to hate and no one can uplift one another. Fame has never been a weakness of mine but by watching this show I can’t say the same for all the ladies. I just hope everyone can recognize what is really important in this life because Basketball Wives will not always be the HOT thing… Then what???

Special thank you to my legal team, Corey Boddie, Sanford Rubenstein and Sabrina Puglisi also my publicist, Elizabeth Traub and my manager, Deanna Morales. And thank you to all my family and friends who have been so supportive of me during all this craziness. I cannot forget my loyal viewers, much love.

“Many walk in and out of our lives, but only those who leave footprints really matter.”- Unknown

Peace and blessings,

JW

I think Evelyn is a childish

I think Evelyn is a childish person. She needs to grow up and act like a women. If she continue how she's doing she will never be married.As for Tami, she needs help, serious help. She and Shaunie are low-key backstabbers. Royce seems chill, she would be the one who evryone should want to be friends with. Suzie is just there for what reason? Kenya is a strong woman, a little crazy but she seem very down to earth, JENNIFER'S earth that is. Kesha is just a lost puppy that needs a home. Jennifer has to be the most CLASSY one on the show, she does not fight, she is absolutely beautiful, and she she is handeling this situation very well. i would do the same thing. whats the use of the law if we're not safe. what? do we let people who put their hands on you get away with it? NO WAY!! and as that is said, have a great day.

I can't help but be upset

I can't help but be upset that Jennifer acted racist with her comment on the show saying she's reacting "like white people" by filing the lawsuit. if it were white people in the same situation and they decided to fight instead of filing a lawsuit and said they decided to act like "black people".. it would be a shit storm. WATCH YOUR MOUTH.

Jen I would do the same

Jen I would do the same thing, sue that skank for whatever she has and let Chad pick up the pieces after her butt crumbles (Sambo is right) with his low self-esteem. Funny he pretends as though he didn't hear what the skank said when she pretended she wanted to have some ugly child for him, "it would look like her"...who in the hell said she's looking any better than Chad! They're two peas in a pod! Tami and Evelyn need to sit their butts down somewhere with that grade school, ghetto mess that they are doing on national TV! Do they think it's cute, funny, or what, because people with class and money like Jen, don't act like they are in the hood...only red necks, ignorant low class bufoons act this way. We all know bufoons come in all races, so they all need to check themselves and remember that children are most likely watching this foolishness! We simply need to STOP the bullying, what is it that they don't understand? I get them impression that NONE of them acting in this manner even have a GED let alone a college degree. Shauni (if that's how you spell her name), is just the biggest low class clown on the planet!

Jen is beautiful and classy and if someone slapped me I would also sue their stinken asses also. Evelyn is nothing but a loose whore wanting to get married to a no good washed up football player. Isn't it amazing how Evelyn fucked Tami's husband and now they are so buddy buddy. Wan't Tami suing Evelyn the other day. So why didn't anybody get upset about that. Shaunie u r nothing but a traitor and instigator. Glad Shaq left your shady ass.

I don't blame Jen one bit.

I don't blame Jen one bit. Black women give themselves a bad rap b/c of their actions. It's a shame that grown women can not handle their emotions, especially in public and feel the need to put their hands on someone just because they disagree with their lifestyle. I hope Jen's lawyers sue the pants off Nia because that was wrong. Also I can't believe Chad is marrying Evelyn's ghetto ass. She has no class and anger issues. Basketball Wives is a disgrace to the African American community.

I respect Jennifer for not

I respect Jennifer for not stooping to their level I would not have given them the satisfaction either. Evelyn is a petty, trifling, ignorant slut who only knows how to stir up drama to stay relevant! Fuck them all Jen continue to take the high road & do you. I would enforce that lawsuit to the fullest, no sympathy for that bitch, since she wanted to jump on Eve's bandwagon for no good reason. #teamJen

YBFFAN I will pray for you because there is more to life than mansion and Maserati's. Clearly you missed the point. Jen was slapped, Jen hit below the belt, enough said. Evelyn has been talking down about every cast mate except for Shaunie. She has some serious issues, low self-esteem, low self-worth, to name a few. Enough of this crying!! Anyone who agrees with Eve and Wiggy (the assistant) in my opinion has self-esteem issue because VIOLENCE is NEVER Okay!! YBFFAN please get your head check!!

The best thing for Jennifer to do is to leave Basketball Wives. She needs to stop making comments about them. Jennifer needs to move on. Unless she really likes all that drama on the show.

Thank you for the info. I will be sure to sign the petition as well, especially after reading some young female adult's twitter comment that read "I want to be just like E_____ L___ when I grow up" (the name was spelled out, but she is too negative for me to even write out her name... I no longer watch BBW because of the violence and disgrace displayed on the show but some of these viewers are still being influenced negatively...and I am speaking of young adults whose parents may not be aware or around.

Evelyn is just mad because Jennifer is not following her around like a lil puppy anymore, and has her own friends...Evelyn is nobody important..she uses her p***y to get what she wants...What dummy closes their own business down because they are marrying a man with money?? Wouldn't you like to have your own. VH1 pays her to stay because she is a ghetto hoebag that can't fight so she throws things. She didn't want any of Tammy in the earlier season tho. Tami is coming across in this season as an instigator which is so sad. You are grown so act like it. Nia was just looking for her 15 minutes of fame which will now be evidence for when she gets charged with assault, so she can thank her buddy Evelyn for that! If people realize they are growing up and would rather not be associated with drama you fight them because you realize you are the drama they got RID of...Go in a corner and cry together Evelyn and Nia. BUMS!

Jen has every right to sue

Jen has every right to sue "the assistant." I am glad that she is handling this situation like a mature adult. It takes a strong person to walk away after being slapped in the face. That does not mean she is a punk neither. The rest of the cast needs to take note. You don't always have to be an ass jumping on tables and fighting in clubs that ish is crazy. I do think it is funny how Mia got sent out by Ev. I guess she thought she was going to come on this season BBW and become the next reality star. You were wrong booboo.

Jennifer is 100% within her

Jennifer is 100% within her right to pursue legal action against someone who violated her constitutional protected rights. She was assaulted by Nia Crooks and Ms. Crooks will have to answer for that assault. I understand that Tami made a comment about, "where she was from," and how one should just, "take the beating and keep it moving." Where she is from, the same constitutional protected rights exist, its a matter or whether or not one exercises them. I am pleased that Jennifer is doing so because she is setting an example: all actions yield consequences, thus one should think before acting. I hope Ms. Crooks has good counsel. As for Evelyn, I find her behavior to be particularly egregious. I almost cannot believe what I see when I watch her on the screen. Throwing bottles of wine at a woman's head for "speaking badly about her," or the recent attempt to throw a glass saucer at someone for making disparaging comments about Crooks and her two bedroom apartment. Seriously? Does she realize, Evelyn that is, that had she successfully struck either woman with those objects that she would have, at minimum received attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon? Are words worth your entire career, family, and life? And I have even touched upon how completely ridiculous it is for women of a certain age to behave that badly on national television. Part of me is always slightly disturbed by Shaunie's ability to stomach the behaviors of her cast mates/friends/employees. The whole thing is an extremely poor reflection on her and her endeavors. BUT then again, what do I know? They're the ones collecting checks for all of the foolishness, right? And the world will continue to watch...

@ The Queen of Hearts Part of

@ The Queen of Hearts Part of me is always slightly disturbed by Shaunie's ability to stomach the behaviors of her cast mates/friends/employees. ***************************************************************************** I totally agree...and what is sooo funny about Shady Shaunie ....One of the reasons (according to her) she does not film with Royce is because of what went down at Reunion #2; however, Evelyn her #1 minion cut the biggest fool at the Reunion #2..but, since Evelyn is her "girl" she gave her a pass. No, in my book if your girl was a fool and you don't get mad....then you treat others the same way ... give them a past as well! Even on the show, Shady Shaunie is NEVER upset when Evelyn gets sideways with people.....calling Royce a Bum B and ALWAYS talking about Royce's hair and clothes, making fun of the way Suzie speaks and saying that Suzie lives off her child supports (well she has TWO kids and DESERVES her money) and let's not forget this season....the acting a COMPLETE fool at her (Shaunie's) birthday party, the bottle & plate throwing at Kenya ... and now the racetrack with Jennifer. But, when Shaunie did not get upset because Nia slap Jennifer (and remember Jennifer is "suppose" to be Shaunie friend)....I knew Shaunie was FULL OF CRAP! The only words out of Shaunie mouth were, "I couldn't believe Jennifer does think she is better than us." I'm really, for real Shuanie!! the girl just got pimp slap, yeah she is going to say some of out pocket stuff. Like I have ALWAYS said, SHAUNIE IS SHADY!
