Basketball Wives Star Jennifer Williams Drops Her Lawsuit Against Nia Crooks
Looks like Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams is trying to play nice.
After a teary-eyed makeup session on the Basketball Wives reunion show, Williams has taken her reconciliation with former-BFF Evelyn Lozada one step further by dropping the lawsuit against her assistant and one-time friend Nia Crooks. After Crooks slapped Williams this season on the VH1 reality series, she vowed revenge. But, apparently, she is having a change of heart.
According to TMZ, financial troubles (her car was recently repossessed) may be one of the reasons Williams is willing to throw in the towel and call for a truce. “[Jennifer] is already dealing with her difficult divorce and did not feel that it was necessary to continue to pursue civil action [against Crooks],” her rep said.
Rumors were swirling that Jennifer might even be dropped from the popular series because her co-stars, including Tami Roman, producer Shaunie O’Neal and Royce Reed, were afraid to film with her and possibly get slapped with a lawsuit if things ever got physical.
While no explanation has been given by Jennifer’s camp as to her motives behind dropping the lawsuit, Crooks’ camp is speaking out. “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,” her lawyer Javier Solano said. “Nia is happy to put this issue behind her and start looking ahead to work on her own career.”
