Kidd Slammed with Grope Suit, But No Charges Yet

12/17/2007 8:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jason Kidd and his million-dollar hands got slapped with a lawsuit by the New York woman who's been alleging that Kidd groped her at a tony Manhattan nightclub.

The woman -- ID'd only as Jane Doe in the suit -- claims in papers that Kidd "battered and assaulted" her on the night of October 10, grabbing her crotch and butt, in addition to verbally threatening her. The allegations had been made in October, but no charges have yet been filed by the Manhattan District Attorney's office. When we called today, the D.A. had no comment. The suit itself seeks unspecified damages.

Kidd's lawyer earlier called the suit "nothing more than a brazen and defamatory search for a payout."

Kidd, along with all these other NBA plyers, actually all professional athletes, need to stay the hell out of these night clubs! It's the price they have to pay for being rich and famous. They think they can hob-nob with regular people but alcohol usually become an issue, along with pride and at the heart of the matter is usually afemale with a pretty face and a big butt who is making eyes at one of these stars and their male friend gets angry and jealous and then all hell breaks loose. I've actually seen this happen a few times myself. One NBA player actually sent his gofer over to our table at a disco to tell a female who was sitting with us that he wanted her to join him at his table. Nevermind that this female's husband was sitting next to her. We had to restrain her husband from confronting the NBA player after this went down. These guys are so concieted and arrogant they think that all women want them, Granted, there are women out there looking for this type but not all of them.

Some of your comments are just ridiculous. Jason Kidd is like 35 years old constantly hanging out in these night clubs with a bunch of kids, and you all wonder why he can't "find a good woman" or why gets himself into these messes. He obviously doesn't want that. He just wants to party.

There have been rumors for years that Kidd gets crazy when he drinks, and I wouldn't be surprised if he was drunk when he harrassed this girl. Face it, Kidd has been in trouble quite a few times for his behavior towards women. Ironically, it seems that his obsession with females is what gets him in trouble in the first place.

This guy has been getting away with 'battering and assaulting women for years. When he played for The Phoenix Suns, months on end would be the evening news about his domestic disputes with his wife. She'd call the police after he'd smacked her around, and then the story would be how sorry she was for having done so. Did Phoenix finally trade the guy out of wanting to just be rid of the baggage (his propensity for beating women), or was it on the up and up? He wasn't the first guy on the team (most valued player) whom the town loved one day, and hated the next and couldn't wait to forget about them and never bring it up again!
