B*tch Slap Lawsuit

"Basketball Wives" star Nia Crooks is finally off the hook for bitch-slapping her VH1 co-star Jennifer Williams ... because Jennifer is officially dropping her lawsuit.

TMZ broke the story ... Williams filed a lawsuit against Crooks ... claiming she suffered serious injuries and psychological damage when Crooks belted her across the face back in January.

Fortunately, the smack was caught on tape and aired on the VH1 reality show. Classic.

But earlier this month, Williams decided to abandon her lawsuit ... and filed court docs to end the legal war forever.  Sources say there was no settlement -- Jennifer simply decided not to move forward.

A rep for Jennifer tells TMZ she is "already dealing with her difficult divorce and did not feel that it was necessary to continue to pursue civil action.”

Nia’s lawyer Javier Solano tells TMZ, “We have always maintained that the frivolous lawsuit brought by Jennifer Williams was nothing short of a last-gasp attempt to maintain her dwindling relevance on the 'Basketball Wives.'"

"Nia is happy to put this issue behind her and start looking ahead to work on her own career."

Harvey, I need to get things moving., I need an agent, I need a book deal, I need my sex tape out there. So I want to do what these clowns do. I'll DRAG and you can slap me in the face after I make some sort of comment about you (you get to pick the comment). I'll sign waivers, I promise I won't sue, I just want the cameras rolling. I need this Harvey, just like these media whores need it. I need it too.

How in the hell is that nasty skeez going to have her own career? Nobody wants to see that dung. Sad proof that you don't have to be anything to be on TV now.
