BB Wives” star Jennifer Williams drops lawsuit against Nia Crooks
Former “Basketball Wives” star Jennifer Williams had a change of heart and decided to drop the lawsuit she initially filed against Nia Crooks.
As previous reports have stated, reality star Jennifer Williams sued Nia Crooks, claiming that she suffered from psychological damage and serious injuries when Crooks slapped her across the face back in January. The incident was reported to have been caught on camera and aired on the VH1 reality show, “Basketball Wives.”
However, earlier this month, Jennifer Williams filed docs to finally put an end to her legal battle with Nia Crooks and has dropped all charges against the assistant of Evelyn Lozada. According to sources, there has been no settlement — Williams simply wanted to end the legal battle.
The rep of Jennifer Williams told media outlet TMZ that she is “already dealing with her difficult divorce and did not feel that it was necessary to continue to pursue civil action.”
Meanwhile, Javier Solano, the lawyer of Nia Crooks, said “We have always maintained that the frivolous lawsuit brought by Jennifer Williams was nothing short of a last-gasp attempt to maintain her dwindling relevance on the ‘Basketball Wives.’”
“Nia is happy to put this issue behind her and start looking ahead to work on her own career,” Solano added.
Jennifer Williams filed for divorce from her husband, Eric Williams after ten years of being married. But over a year later, the couple are still not divorced yet.
Last month, Nia Crooks had an interview with S2S Magazine about her brawl with Williams that was caught on-tape. She admitted that she had regrets about what happened between her and the reality star:
“I just wish my reaction wouldn’t have been that. I can’t take that back now, but that’s the way I was raised. That’s how I grew up. That’s a normal reaction of mine.”
But Jennifer Williams is not the only “Basketball Wives” star to be involved in a physical altercation. Her former co-stars Meeka Claxton and Tami Roman were allegedly thrown out of a nightclub after punches were thrown.
The first two seasons of “Basketball Wives” documented the breakdown of the marriage of Jennifer Williams and Eric Williams, while season three culminated in Jennifer’s decision to file for divorce from her husband. As of season four, it had yet to be finalized. Jennifer develops a lip gloss line as her business venture.
Jennifer Williams, who was raised in South Orange, New Jersey, has worked as a high-end real estate broker and owner of workout company called “Flirty Girl Fitness.” She also supports a number of charities and founder of Project Save the World. While Jennifer had a very close relationship with Evelyn Lozada throughout the first three seasons of “Basketball Wives,” the fourth season witnessed the dramatic falling out of their friendship to due rifts caused by Evelyn’s engagement and Jennifer’s publicist.
