On Monday night’s show we saw Evelyn’s assistant, Nia Crooks, slap Jennifer Williams on national TV. Yesterday morning Jennifer filed a lawsuit against Nia in New York and a criminal complaint against her in Florida. Jen claims that the attack has had lasting effects, still causing whiplash and post-traumatic stress.
At a recent radio interview in New York this is what Jen had to say, “I’m not going to hit you physically. I’m going to hit you with a lawsuit. I’m not tolerating abuse whether it’s from a man or a woman. You can’t put your hands on people and there be no repercussions.” I guess Jennifer knows how to make good on her word!
Jennifer’s lawyer, Sanford Rubenstein, later on explained why charges were being filed in two different states. “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,” he said in a statement. “A criminal complaint filed by Jennifer Williams is presently under investigation by the office of the State’s Attorney in Florida.”
Jennifer is set to hold a press conference in NYC today about the charges.
Spitters, is this a smart move or is Jen just a coward?
To only see the altercation skip ahead to 35:00 mark!
