'Basketball Wives' Star

Sues Over Slap Fight --

I'm Soooo Traumatized!!!

"Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams is finally fighting back after being slapped in the face by her reality show nemesis Nia Crooks ... with a big, fat, stinging lawsuit. 

TMZ broke the story ... Williams filed a police report after the January 21 incident, in which she claims Crooks delivered an "open hand" slap to the left side of her face during a group outing to a race track in Florida.

The incident was caught on tape by the "Basketball Wives" crew and aired last week. During the melee, Crooks threatened Williams right before the attack ... saying, "Do I need to slap you in the face to wake you up?"

Williams replied, "I wish you would." She got her wish.

Williams has now followed up with a civil suit in NY ... going after Nia's ass for assault and battery. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Jennifer claims she suffered serious injuries in the attack ... as well as "mental shock, mental anguish and psychological trauma”

Williams is demanding Nia fork over a massive check for all of her medical expenses and other damages.

Calls to Crooks have not been returned.

You guys keep talking about Evelyn. You must not have been watching the same show I watched because Evelyn was not the person who slapped her. In fact she did the same thing Jennifer did when Meeka was getting her behind kicked in Italy minus the laughter. She sat there and watched until she decided to jumped on the table and unless you have something that allows you to see next weeks show we don't know what happen after that. L.O.L.

She was a bum for that one. All she stated she wanted was an explaination and her keys returned. So that was needed to be accompanied by a slap in the face. Her and Evelyn are going after people who they know are not going to retaliate. If it was me, she would have been in the basement by the time I've gotten thru with her.

Why is Jen playing the victim? She told the other girl, "I wish you would." So not sure why she is seeking damages.... she egged the other girl on. Ghetto trash.

There is a piece missing in this story. That slap was for something we know nothing about. The beef with Eve goes deeper than we see on TV. Something is missing in that storyline.

Hello you    

Thank you Jennifer. Nobody has the right to put his hand on somebody. Those ladies Evelyn, Tammy and the assistant whatsoever are crazzzzzzzzzyyyyyyyy. Evelyn is sooooo jealous of you. First she advised you to divorce because of a cheating husband.... And now she is getting married to this guy, football player who is so overexposed ! Good friend hummmm
Sue them and stay away of those ladies. Focus on you, your tastes and your life. God has something good for you coming. Be strong. You are the only lady I like in this show.

These are the stupidist bunch of women. These women are in their 30's and are acting like a bunch of teenagers. Evelyn jumping on tables throwing things around.There is not a man around who'll take them seriously.All that fake hair. Just a bunch of unhappy people.Hate for one of them to be my mom.

Jen said "I wish you would" Nia was simply granting her wish I think just because of that Jennifer will lose because she literally asked to be slapped.
