'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.

I know as a woman I have lost my temper and the situations have not always been the prettiest, point being Tammy was wrong for hitting and on the other hand Meeka just as wrong for always talking ****. In the the "real world" people get their ass whooped for talking to much ****. Society created suing folks. You may never know which path is your destiny :)so my advice is what ever you do be aware there are consequences to everything...smdh~

I agree that the ladies should not be fighting. They are way too old for this mess. That being said, Meeka needs to stop! She is as two faced as one can get. Tami may be hood or ghetto but she is real! Tami is Tami and she doesn't change based on who she is talking to at the time. Meeka, take your but whipping like the he/she you are.

Tammy is a bully and a drama queen!She need some counseling and anger management!!! Everybody loves drama and that's why they like Tammy. Regardless of what someone say to you, you can control your hands. I wouldn't even want a friend like that in my life. It is so sad that people encourage drama. Seek God!!!!

Meeka should have told them all to roll to the east. She tried too hard and talked too much in confidence to Susie who cannot spell the word peace. Jennifer stop letting your friends find you a man while you hold Eric in your heart and mind. Shaune you are with the crap..hah ha! Royce you are my girl but do not allow fame to find you in a porn movie. Men will sometimes treat a friend of their womans like the whore they cannot define or accept so hurt can be inadverdently slashed. You are better than that! Tami take that energy and find you a man Meeka got one...!

I don't know why Tami is on the show other than all the drama she causes. She doesn't fit in...just a ghetto biotch. Someone needs to knock her down a peg and Suzi too. Meeka is the only one not afraid of her and I hope she wins her lawsuit. Threatning not to be on the show...so what, you're not all that.

Wonder why Tami forgave Evelyne for sleeping with her husband and calling her a-non-factor-bitch and Jennifer for not knowing a foodstamp but she hated Meeka on some foolish crap and when did Susan grow some balls?
