Jennifer Williams is apparently no longer emotionally distressed over being slapped on national TV because the (former?) “Basketball Wives” cast member has dropped her suit against Evelyn’s assistant Nia Crooks.
TMZ says Jen’s lawyers filed court documents to abandon the suit earlier this month, which is about six months after the initial paperwork was filed. Jen took legal action against Nia—despite saying on the show Nia had nothing worth suing for—when she slapped her during an episode of the series. Afterward, Jen claimed to be physically and psychologically damaged, hence the suit, but now all has changed. No settlement was reached between the two, Jen reportedly just decided not to go through with the legal process. Her rep told TMZ:
Jen is “already dealing with her difficult divorce and did not feel that it was necessary to continue to pursue civil action.”
In reponse to the news, Nia’s lawyer Javier Solano said:
“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.”
I’m sure Nia is, and given the fact that Jen recently had her Bentley repossessed, I’m guessing she has bigger fish to fry—or no money to pay lawyers. Oh well, hopefully Nia learned her lesson, you can’t just go around slapping people or they will slap you back with a lawsuit.
Do you think Jen should have pursued the suit?
