'Basketball Wives' Star Files for Divorce

6/27/2011 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The tumultuous relationship between Eric and Jennifer Williams -- nonstop fodder for years on VH1's "Basketball Wives" -- is coming to an end ... because Jennifer just filed for divorce.

Jennifer Williams Divorce
Williams finally pulled the trigger Friday, filing papers in Hudson County Superior Court in New Jersey. Williams, who tied the knot with Eric in the Bahamas back in 2007, cites irreconcilable differences.

Williams wants alimony, plus an "equitable" distribution of the couple's assets. 

They have no kids.

If you were married a short time - a few yrs - you had no real career or education before you got married and no kids during the marriage (or with the spouse before the marriage) then why in HECK do you need alimony?? I am so thankful that I am not any of these "women" on these shows that claim to be housewives but they are celeb wannabes with no talent, some one step away from being escorts, strippers. Wait, Danielle Staub- stripper! Trapping a pro-athelete (or any man w money) into marriage or sex or being your baby daddy does not entitle you to any status other than child support for your kid(s)!! I thought we had evolved as women to not depend on men - to educate ourselves, pay own way but I guess that requires character which these women do not have. These women are disgusting. I may not wear $60...0 shoes but pay my own mortgage, put my kid thru college, buy my own shoes, and hold my head up high every day!

I do not see why she should get alimony...she has been making money on her own.

She better not cry about being accustomed to a certain lifestyle. I bet he was accustomed to getting polished in the morning, but you don't see him asking for that.

Relationships/marriages are now based on needs not love. I somtimes wish that I had that status but at what price..........Being a football/basketball player you are always in doubt? The question will always remain, does she love me for me or for the money/status. And yes ladies, the relationship is always tested because you sometimes wonder is he being faithful while he is away? Man...looking back at Micheal Jackson's life, I love me and being a nobody to the media.

What is with that big knot on his head? Is that a basketball injury? It just goes to show, a little wealth and fame and some women will marry any ugly old Joe.
