'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.

Tami - Sweetie - your a mother of TWO daughters! What a poor example you are setting. Low-class to settle differences with physical violence. That just shows how unintelligent people are when they can't use their words to settle things. No wonder she's a single beyotch! No man wants a violent irrational woman...

She deserves to be sued and charged!

Well it's what she signed up for, so deal w/it. Tami doesn't mind whipping azz from time to time anyway.

@Bob you're a delusional racist. Have you seen Mob Wives? Should you go and make another stupid comment such as typical "Italian on Italian" crime? PEOPLE are PEOPLE and THE SPOTLIGHT blinds many--don't make everything out to be racial smh WHEN WILL YOU & IDIOTS LIKE YOU EVER GROW THE HELL UP?!!

What, exactly, do black people hope to prove when getting into physical confrontations with people inevitably either ends up with them being in jail for assault or sued into bankruptcy? Tami is on the show because she's poor and broke and needs the money. I qui*****ching because of her antics, but I'm sure Meeka will win a sizeable judgement and then Tami will be homeless & on-the-street busted because she'll be bankrupt. Exactly *how* is that laudible or "keeping it real"???

To me "keepin' in real" simply means "too dumb to know when to shut the **** up".

Dam...the more ya'll got Tammi on here talking about her temper(s) and what-not, the hotter she gets. If she pulls a knife out on someone, I just might start stalking her, haha. Ok, sorry - "THAT WASN'T NOT FUNNY" - shoutout to the old skool Real World cast.

I guess Tami likes to stay broke. She said in the last season how she was on food stamps. Well I guess she wants to get back on them once Meeka sues her.

Meeka sucks but Tami is a low life piece of sh**. She's in her 40's and acts like that. Sub human with anger management issues. Plus she walks funny. Like she has a pole up her hole.

Meeka was set up, Shaunie (sp) took the show out of the US so Tami wouldn't go to jail. They were talking about getting her, back when they were in NY on the roof top club having drinks. Shaunie also set up Evelyn, that is why she was contemplating leaving the show after her bout w/ Team Tami. LOL!
