Basketball Wives Meeka Claxton Suing Tami Roman For Assault

It seems that on every season of Basketball Wives someone opts to bring in legal eagles for a lawsuit. As we work our way towards the finale in season 3, looks like Meeka Claxton is the one filing suit this time around.

The ladies took a trip to Italy in May and if you recall, Tami Roman and Meeka Claxton had some sort of physical altercation in a club there. Meeka took to Twitter shortly after to deny claims that Tami punched her in the face. Apparently Meeka is now back peddling (shocker, Meeka backtracking on a statement) and has filed suit against Tami in New York. Who else but TMZ would have the details:

According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in New York, Tami “assaulted, battered, beat, threatened, menaced, attacked, jumped on, pushed to the ground, thrashed, punched, and shoved” Meeka … causing serious injury.

Meeka wants Tami to cough up unspecified damages, claiming the incident cost her a day of filming — and put her through an emotional and physical hell.

Tami recently mentioned in a radio interview that if Meeka wanted to bring suit against her, she could try but that she didn’t own much. The reunion show shoots on Monday, July 25th in Hollywood, of course this topic HAS to be addressed there. You think Meeka will be back for season 4? Whatever goal she was hoping to accomplish by joining the cast, I seriously doubt she’s reached it. Maybe the suit will make up for it…

    I truly hope Meeka sue that “nut” Tami to the fullest extend of the law. She is always glorifying violence. As if that is an appropriate action. Meeka sue her and set an example as how a professional women behaves. This ignorant behavior is creating and perpetuating a stigma amongst basketball wives. I truly wish the true wives would speak up.

    Why they aint (the real BBW)speaking up? LOL One did Carmelo Anthony wife, she said what her husband does do not define her. ROFL Maybe that should be their roles as well, as she now has her own show coming out. GO LALA! Make your own money and you will not be so depressed when divorce comes. You know the odds of marriage in this country.

    Shaunie you pimp you. LOL

  • Real never Fake

    That’s a straight coward ass move first of all if meeka had of kept her mouth close she would not have to worry about this and a professional woman does not go around running her mouth about stuff she knows nothing about or she does not cause confusion

  • Honest InTell It Like It Is

    IF MEEKA AINT COME IN LIKE OH SHE WAS RUNING THIS AND MIND HER OWM BUSINESS THIS WOULDNT EVEN WENT DOWN!!! ALSO SHE NEVER GOT DOWN TO THE POINT OF THE SUBJECT WANNA TALK IN CIRCLES IN TAMI GOT TIRED OF HER BUTT … N TAMI NOT TRASHY SHE JUST REAL ABOUT HERS …..!!!

  • Jill

    I agree, Meeka came into the whole situation foul. But by the time they were in Italy everyone knew what it was and what she was about. It wasn’t that serious to hit her IMO.

  • Honest InTell It Like It Is

    I MEAN WELL HONESTLY IT WAS . BECAUSE IF MEEKA AINT START THAT MESS FROM THE BEGINING THEY WOULDNT BE IN THIS MESS RIGHT NOW YOU KNOW . AND ITS SO MUCH YOU CAN TAKE FROM SOMEONE LYING BEATING AROUND THE BUSH ABOU THINGS IN THAT FRUSTRATE THE FREAK OUTTA PEOPLE…

    Meeks is a week ass bitch. Everybody who has common sense knows what happens when you run your mouth in the hood. If I had to choose someone real in my corner, it would be Tami.

  • Ashley

    Its not the hood Tammie tries to sound intelligent but then she shows shes ghetto and out of her element and goes back to being food stamp ghetto bytch. Evelyn is scared of Tammie thats why she let that shirt situation go. Meeka needs to speak up for herself and stop letting these wannabe teenage grown bytches talk over her. Please sue tammie the hood rat roman ass. Keep the hood where its good in the neighborhood and keep it tight when its right in the spotlight. Give black women class not trash.

    Meeka has the right to freedom of speech. Somebody needs to beat Tammie’s ass. They clearly instigated arguments with Meeka. Meeka always tried to explain herself and what do they (cast) do, cut her off. I think Tammie has self esteem issues and she is trying to bring somebody down in the process by playing this hard core role. I can see right through you Tammie. Your broke! I use to like you until you started trouble with Meeka for being herself! You didn’t want anybody to like Meeka because when you first joined the cast, nobody accepted you. You had to put up a fight with everybody until you forced them to accept you. And quite honestly I don’t think anybody likes you, they just tolerate you because they have to and don’t want to embarrass you or are afraid of you because of your ghetto violent behavior. I hope you get sued for every penny you got even your weave. Your not a basketball wife so why are you even on the show. At least Meeka lives up to the title of the show. Stop hating Tammie. Get a life. Go make real friends.

    I think that Meeka suing Tami is NOT the right thing to do. Meka was warned during the beginning of the season by Tami that she will not take to lightly a hand being put in her face. That was a pet peeve of hers to be respected just like Tami respected Meeka’s pet peeves. Meeka came into the situation wanting to be on a specific side. She knew she didn’t like Royce from the beginning and expressed that to Evelyn, Shaunie and Jen but NEVER expressed that to Royce and that became a problem for Tami who happens to be Royce’s friend. Then Tami is being told that you are talking about her which really set the chain reaction. And to top things off, you lied on her. She specifically said in second or third episode that Meeka could either be on the popular side or the real side. Meeka did not keep it real and as a result, she suffered the consequences. Tami is 100% real about hers and that is why people are calling her ghetto because they are confusing REAL with TROUBLEMAKER! Ghetto is someone that FIGHTS ALL THE TIME AND CAUSES TROUBLE FOR NO REASON! Tami fought because she was being LIED ON, LIED TO and TALKED ABOUT so therefore, she responded and it was not pretty!

    I think Meeka is so so right in sueing Tami. It does not matter how heated the conversation gets when you put your hands on someone it takes it to another level. So dont blame Meeka for sueing…thats another level. Yes Meeka could have came in more doing her and not letting what others say sway her decicion on how she is going to handle and view the others. But thats not the ponit. Meeka handle your shyt…sue her pants off. And for god sakes just tell Tami her hair is a mess and her dress game needs stepped up for real. I wish Meeka would speak up for her self more. Tami said she dont care what Meeka says..but honey this whole things is because you care what Meeka said and Meeka should feel honoured that Tami would have so much energy into digging deep into what she said. At the end of the day peoople are going to talk and you might not like what is said but carry yourself with some self respect when you are out of the hood into a more classy setting like national television!!…All of them need some help carrying themselves like respectable black women.

    I think she has a right to sue her also.

  • jeannie

    Tammy is the reason all our brothers are turning to white woman. I am embarrassed to be an educated intelligent black woman. It makes me sad to see these women act like 15 year old school girls. I’m sure my opinion doesn’t matter to any of them but if just one reads this post and stops to think how they look to outsiders it was worth my time.
