Basketball Wives’ Meeka Claxton Sues Tami Roman For Assault!
22 Jul 2011
TMZ is now reporting that Basketball Wives star Meeka Claxton has filed a lawsuit against her co-star Tami Roman for assault and battery.
This all stems from a nightclub fight that took place in Rome, Italy last month. And yes this is the same fight that will be shown on the upcoming episode of the VH1 show. According to reports, things came to ahead between both ladies when Tami decided to punch Meeka in the face leading to a fist fight.In the lawsuit filed yesterday in New York, Meeka alleges Tami “assaulted, battered, beat, threatened, menaced, attacked, jumped on, pushed to the ground, thrashed, punched, and shoved” her causing serious injury.Meeka is seeking unspecified damages stating the incident cost her a day of filming — and put her through an emotional and physical hell. Tami has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
While we confess that we don't know a great deal about Mrs.Claxton, we do know Tami on more of a personal level. Tami gave us an exclusive interview for our online magazine (Cruz Inc, The Magazine) June 2010 issue.
She was very candid and shared the good and the bad about herself. Tami gets a lot of attention because she is out-spoken and doesn't like to be played. Many people often misunderstand Tami, generally those people don't know anything about her.
Those who know her, understand her passion and drive. She is very business savvy and a perfectionist. She is very kind-hearted, which her detractors may take for weakness. Like any of us, she has her limits as to what you can do or say to harm her family, reputation or career.
Do we endorse any type of violence...honestly, only if it comes to protecting ones self. Knowing Tami, I would venture to say Tami was defending herself or Meeka became an obvious threat.
Before you judge Tami, allow her time to respond to this suit via the proper channels, which would be through her attorney and through the courts. Keep her in your prayers and get to know the person before hating the person.
