'Basketball Wives'

Boycott Reunion Show

Over Face-Slap Lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE

Basketball Wives Season 4 Cast
Several "Basketball Wives" are adamantly refusing to tape the big upcoming reunion show next month, TMZ has learned -- and it's all because of the face-slap lawsuit Jennifer Williams filed against Nia Crooks.

As we reported, Jennifer is suing Nia for assault and battery over a January 21st incident at a race track in Florida -- when Nia slapped Williams in the side of the head after a nuclear argument (below). Jennifer says she was injured badly during the attack.

But according to sources at VH1, the castmates are convinced Jennifer's lawsuit was filed out of spite and desperation to dredge up drama around her character -- in the vain hope of securing a spot on the show next season. Our sources also think Jennifer's claim of emotional distress is BS because she never missed a day of shooting.

We're told several prominent castmembers have vowed to shun her completely ... refusing to even speak to Jennifer -- and are threatening not to attend the reunion show early next month if she attends.

And there's this -- the contract signed by the "Wives" castmates specifically states .... "Participant expressly assumes the risk of any physical or emotional injuries participant may suffer as a result of participant's participation in the project.""

Stay tuned.

they're boycotting because they think it's ok for someone to be slapped in the face and not be sued? What in the hell is wrong with the trashy women who are boycotting? They're basically saying they condone fighting and won't tape the reunion because someone fought back using the legal system and not their fists... Wow! That's insane to me. The one's boycotting have definitely missed the mark on this one.

The ladies on this show is SAD...All the hateing on Jennifer and than they have the nerve to fault her and try to boycott in an attempt to basically get Jennifer fired...These women are just childish and sad...When will they grow-up and conduct themselves as women? No matter the amount of money they are making...it is not worth their self respect and dignity..."GROW-UP Evelyn and Tammy and stop throwing your rock Shaunie and hiding your hand...

Evelyn, Tami and Shaunie are bullies. They pick one of the others to always target, then go on the attack with a mob mentality and sit back smirking when they get someone to cry or hurt them.

Grown women in their 40's acting like playground bullies. It's unreal that these women think their behavior is okay and think they are all that. They won't even take a long hard look at their own malice and intentional vindictiveness, they feel a need to do it as a group to gang up on another individual. Then sit back ringing their hands with glee when they provoke it, it is just disgusting.

I don't know how their families could be pleased with this kind of behavior.

They bully Jen because Jen is over their behavior and they want Jen to go along with their little mob, and she won't, so now they think it is okay to throw wine bottles at another of the cast, and now hit Jen in the face because she won't do what they feel she should do or say?

They should inventory their own nasty actions.

now we know why these women are so ready to abuse each other, the clause. it relives someone of punishment, no matter how abusive they become. i think that evelyn person put the lady up to attacking jennifer(because she is to chicken #hit to do it herself). jennifer has had more class than the others. they all are so shallow and phoney, with their circle and narssistic personalities.

Hi! Please correct your article. It's not Jennifer Lawrence but Jennifer Williams! Unfair to the OSCAR nominee and Hunger Games franchise carrier.

Ok, from left to right:
1st on the left - Evelyn: crazy, cleat chaser, ho, bi-polar, dream-killer,cursed, greasy,bad news.
2nd to left - Royce: D. Howard's jump off, career "dancer", ho, supported for 18 yrs because she spread her legs and got pregnant on purpose, cheesy, basic trash, mentality/maturity of a 5 year old.
3rd to left: C. Bell ex-wife: Violent - stabbed him multiple times, criminal record, erratic, dangerous, dream-kller, has no soul or talent for that matter
Left Center - Ms. O'Neal - poser, ringleader of chaos, no class, self entitled, wannabe
Right Center - Tami - erratic, bi-polar, violent temper, alcohol issues
3rd from right - Jennifer - self entitled, a child, high class poser, no class, big talker
2nd from right - R. Jefferson's ex-fiancee - something is off, a mystery, another poser, no talent, forgettable
Far right - Suzy - ex GF of a NBA player a decade ago, big talker (she shouldn't speak), annoying, meddling, bored.
Overall, all these hos are cleat-chasers, gold diggers, make black women look bad, aren't basketball wives (they are baby mommas, ex-gfs, or ex wives), and violent.
