'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 is trash and has been since her "real world" days when she had David kicked out for no reason. Tami Akbar giving black women a bad name for over over a decade.

I dont like Tami! She is always trying to cause drama.. hopefully she gets a taste of her own medicine and is forced to pay the reprocutions of her actions. SHe tries to get all Ghetto on the show and it is ridiculous..She has two children grow up and act like an adult not a teenager and keep looking for fights.

Meeka is two-faced and she messed with the wrong one. Tami whipped that ass in Italy. How can Meeka sue in the US when it happened in Italy??? Yeah, Tami might be crazy but she tells it like it is... Meeka is the phony one!!! Tami is a East Coast chick who doesn't take any mess from anybody.

Venice,
Unfortunately, you hit the nail on the head. We keep watching mindless t.v, and these broads are getting paid. Tami need some counseling. I noticed she's doing beer now. Probably because her ass can not handle liquor or wine. But dang boo the beer isn't working either. Meeka sue that byotch and create your own show. You are better than them. And for the record, Tami's weave is a little jacked-up. Perm your ends! Damn beady bee!
