"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.

Jennifer said "i wish you would" re: the slap - can't see how she's the victim. You don't want to get slapped stop inviting the gesture.

there is a lot of jealousy among these girls. jennifer comes a good family, who has money and the rest of them has to sleep for what they have. they are pitiful. keep standing up for yourself jennifer, thats what a real woman would do. evelyn and her girl friday are just very jealous and it shows. that is why nothing good will ever happen to them, especially evelyn, shes a big bully and just wait, it will all come back to her, because what goes around comes around....

Evelyn is nothing but a jealous, lowlife bully! She picks on Jennifer because she is an easy target but once Tami popped her in the face, she started following her around like a little puppy dog. Evelyn is darn near 40 years old, what a pitiful excuse for a grown woman!

Well, she DID in fact have her lawyers provide paperwork for the women.

I don't like her, but after evelyn threaten to kill her, you can't blame her.

They need to put these ghetto-fied hoot-rat females in-check.

Just because you chase and then spread your legs to some NBA/Athlete who has a multi-million dollar contract don't mean you're still not the same jump-off ghetto trash you were beforehand. (granted jenn does not have any children)
