'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.

0722-claxton-tami-roman-exd2

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.

@TamiRoman You are a IGNORANT, GHETTO, WELFARE BEEYOTCH! I'm glad that Meeka is suing your DUSTY AZZ! Guess its back 2 BAD WEAVES & SALVATION ARMY CLOTHES FOR YOU! I bet you'll think twice before you put your MONKEY KNUCKLES on someone else. You're not even *****H RICH & you have the audacity to assault people like you can afford lawsuits. You just got rid of your EBT card. How ironic, you were threatening to sue Evelyn & managed to get sued.
What an idiot.

Hmmmm...    

Well, can't say I didn't see this coming (and I'm sure everybody on the set saw it coming too). I like Tami a lot, never cared for Meeka, but Tami you can't put hands on everybody you don't like. It saddens me that entertainment ha***** an all time low (especially with these so called "reality" shows), it's even worse that this is what the viewers seem to want. There is no such thing as good entertainment anymore.

Meeka shoulda got her azz whooped a while ago for her BIG AZZ MOUTH! Good for her & mad props to Tami. This huzzy thought she could get in the circle by running her mouth about certain females in the group and you could tell she had too much mouth & Tami was gonna whoop her azz eventually. Be so glad it wasnt Evelyn or both of them at the same time, lol. And thats a PUNK AZZ move sueing Tami! Meeka got what she deserved. Dont write a check your azz cant cash Meeka dear! Good for you Knockout Tami Tyson!

Tami is too old, her kids have more class than she does. She has been throwing fists since real world. I would sue her ass too. You don't have the right to hit a person because you don't like them. This is a big problem with bullying. You can tell who the people are that have been raised with class vs those who have not. That's why we have laws because if we had the right to hit anybody when we wanted to then we would all be walking around with black eyes.

Team Tami! Meeka has been sickening to watch: two-faced, mouthy and a liar (when confronted) to boot. I hope this case gets thrown out. Take your whipping like a woman and keep it movin'...

Jajajaja Tami is my girl, she say whatever she needs to say to who ever, but the other ones are so afraid to say what they have in mind, and that takes them to drama. What was funny is that Mika was very talkative since she started on the show, and never took a break, and when they went to France she was speechless, why, cause she knew Tami wasn't buying any of her crap. Cant wait to see the show...

These ARE NOT basketball wives but basketball ex wives.Its no wonder all but one are divorced and for the fact that Meeka has a husband none of them will like her;she needs to understand that.You cannot be a happy wife then get along with miserable divorced women.Tami in her crass way calls refers to Meeka as`BLACK ASS` forgetting her 'black ass' ex husband kicked her like a dog when he realised how disgusting she was and is still nausiated of her to date.She is so low class no wonder she was on food stumps for the longest time;a complete s*** of these country.Meeka try to hang out with real wives coz you have class,those are whores around you now,period.

I would never want to be around the kind of people you have to watch what you say around them for fear of setting them off. Having to monitor everything you do and say because that person is an out of control lunatic and saying, doing or making the wrong move could set of this ticking time bomb!!!! And I bet many of these people supporting Tami could never be comfortable around her either, because they cannot trust her. Puhhhhleezz...put yourself in Meeka and those other women shoes. Although, the others deserve what they get...their scary a$$.

Sorry, Meeka...you may not be successful at getting anything out of Tami...SHE HAS NOTHING!!!! Why do you think she hates you so much???

While it's true you should have kept quiet and watch, Tami and no one has the right to put their hands on you. She crossed the line, and now I am more convinced that ever that that trick is totally NUTS!!!!!

Keep your head up, Meeka...Shaunie, Jen, Evelyn, and Tami wish they had it like you got it.
