'B-ball Wife' Sues: Co-Star Beat the CRAP Outta Me

7/22/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Basketball Wives" star Meeka Claxton claims her co-star Tami Roman beat her to a pulp in an Italian nightclub recently -- and now, she's out for revenge ... SUING Tami for assault and battery.

TMZ broke the story ... Meeka and Tami had been at odds with each other for a long time -- and according to sources close to the show, Tami tried to settle the score once and for all last month ... with a fist fight.

According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in New York, Tami "assaulted, battered, beat, threatened, menaced, attacked, jumped on, pushed to the ground, thrashed, punched, and shoved" Meeka ... causing serious injury.

Meeka wants Tami to cough up unspecified damages, claiming the incident cost her a day of filming -- and put her through an emotional and physical hell.

So far, no word back from Tami's camp.

Too bad the carabinieri didn´t haul them off to jail in Rome and, after some "accidents" in the jail, dump their bodies in the Tiber.

Typical black on black crime. Even when they're rich the ghetto mentality prevails.

And another thing!    

Meeka is a mess and is always stirring the pot with Tami. Any beat down she got was well deserved just on past behavior alone.

that crazy beyotch Tammi is mentally unstable and has wanted to fight everyone on the show...she is a total loone! and I'm glad Meeka sued her. The other girls (except for Shawne) is afraid of that cracy Tammi.
