Tami Roman Sued by Meeka Claxton

Drama! Drama! Drama! Basketball wife Meeka Claxton is suing basketball ex-wife Tami Roman. According to published reports, Meeka claims she was assaulted by Tami while vacationing in Italy and shooting scenes for their VH1 reality series ‘Basketball Wives.’ The incident reportedly happened last month and yes, is the same incident that will be seen on next week’s episode.

In the lawsuit, Meeka alleges Tami assaulted, beat, threatened, battered, thrashed, punched and shoved her- causing serious bodily injury. Meeka also alleges the assault caused her to miss a day of taping on ‘Basketball Wives,’ thus causing her to violate her contract with VH1.

Meeka is seeking unspecified damages for “emotional and physical hell”. Tami has yet to respond publicly to the lawsuit.

  1. She forgot to mention that Tami referred to her as “Black Ass”. I know some people may take offense to that kind of stuff. Tami is crazy! And I dont mean that in a good way.

  2. I’m sorry but these are the dumbest women I’ve seen in a long time. You don’t like someone but you love talking about them, being around them, thinking about them etc. I know it’s all for show but..damn.

  3. @John yeah I agree with you, I tried watching the show a couple of times and it was literally like diarreah to me. Those women are vile.

  4. @ John I agree with you 100%, they have NO class or self-respect it’s really sad.

  5. Co-sign JOHN!! Tami is ignorant and hateful! I cannot believe she treated this sista that way!! If I was Meeka I would get a paycheck like Shaunie…and the rest of them could kiss my ass!!

  6. @BLACKSISTA

    I too got the feeling that Tami was using the word black in a derogatory way towards Meeka. It seemed to me to be a slight about Meeka’s dark skin.

    I am very disappointed in Tami and have been since the beginning. It appears life has beat her down and she has become an angry and bitter drunk.

  7. Meeka is a two faced sh-t starter. She should have never started on Tami at the polo club because she has been on her sh-t list since then! I dont feel sorry for Meeka at all because I feel she brought it on herself. Thats why people need to learn to keep their mouths shut and stop writing checks they cant cash!

  8. CANCEL THIS SHOW. BLACK WOMEN MAKING THEMSELVES LOOK BAD TO THE WORLD.WHEN WILL WE WANT TO REPRESENT OURSELVES IN A POSITIVE LIGHT. IT’S BAD ENOUGH THAT THE MAINSTREAM LOOKS DOWN ON US, BUT THEN WE VALIDATE THEIR CLAIMS BY ACTING LIKE THIS. AND JUST BECAUSE THE RATINGS ARE HIGH MEANS NOTHING. IT MEANS THAT FOR EVERY HOUSEHOLD THAT HAS THE RATING BOX IN THEIR HOMES, IT’S A HIT. MOST RAKTING BOXES ARE IN MOSTLY WHITE HOMES, WHEREAS THOSE FOUND IN BLACK HOMES WERE BROKEN. THINK ABOUT IT.

    GROWN WOMEN FIGHTING- WE HAVE TO DO BETTER.

    BLACK WOMEN OUR STOCK WENT UP WITH FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA, THEN PLULMMENTED DOWN BECAUSE OF THIS SHOW.

  9. This show is indeed a disgrace…I watched last week to see Jen and her “mean girl” friend go at it…Shaunie could have done this show on a higher level and people still tuned in…this show is a ratings bonanza because of the back-stabbing, lying, over-the-top cat fights…when Royce wasn’t invited to Italy, I thought, “how mean” Shaunie…the sad thing is that if they don’t clown, they won’t be back…like the housewives shows…the mob wives were pretty bad…the Bachelor is pathetic…these shows don’t empower women…regardless of race, all of them are tacky…classless…reality tv is what it is…

    Why I watch Locked Up Abroad, Alaskan Truckers, Deadliest Catch and the prison lockdown shows (their ingenuity amazes me) for reality tv drama…enjoyed The Braxtons…love Unsung…

    I would say “this too shall pass”…but, it won’t anytime soon!

  10. Just a question. Has Latina women’s stock gone down since Evelyn Lozado was introduced to the world?

    Just something to think about…

  11. Evelyn stock won’t go down, because she is a latina. Other women can act the same as black women, but they will never receive the same ridicule and disgust that is placed on black women. Black women should realize that in this world , we have to fight 100x’sa harder than any other group, because of our history and place in society. how can we say that well not all black women act like that, when the world only see that one picture. because 99% of the women on bbws are black, the world only see black women acting up. we have to do better.

  12. She just need to get Evelyn. Than vh1 can let this show go!!!!!!!!!

  13. I agree with Sista, our stock will continue to plummet like no other group of women…the way we are type cast is sad and unfortunate, while we’re some of the most beautiful and diverse women on the planet with a swag like nobody else…no matter what white people, white women do, from serial killings to murder for higher, consuming more illicit drugs than anyone else…we’ll always be the ones getting the side-eye…racial embarassment is hard and these images do harm and definitel linger long after these shows are a wrap!

    Evelyn is so tacky, but it won’t hurt her at all or other Latinas…it really took a black woman looking and demonstrating like Michelle Obama to help get our firt Black President elected…our history is strong while our media images and perception is quite weak!

  14. Eve is part-latina and part-black, so she still considered a black woman.

  15. Why do people feel that it is OK for Meeka to get punched in the face just because she runs her mouth too much. Yes, it is true, Meeka does talk too much, but she does not deserve to be assaulted for it. Yes, Meeka probably lied on Tami and played both sides of the fence, but still, she does not deserve to be physicall attacked for it. Tami took it too far, and she needs to be taught a lesson.

    Tami spends too much time trying change people. There are many different types of people in the world: liars, cheaters, fake people, killers and so on. Those type of people will always inhabit the earth. Tami needs to the let those people be themselves and worry about improving her own character. Once again, she needs to learn that she CANNOT change people. She cannot make people see the world as she sees it or act according to her perception of what is right or wrong. Tami was dead WRONG for attacking Meeka, and I hope Meeka wins her lawsuit and leaves Tami penniless again. Tami needs to go to anger management.

  16. Evelyn is 100% latino. Please, people do your research. Also, I don’t understand why people get mad just because Tami called Meeka “black ass”. The only type of people who would get mad about that is someone who is insecure about their dark skin.

  17. And black women wonder why the most ghetto , outlandish black men really can’t stand to be around us. Look how we are perceived. There was no reason for Tammi to attack Meeka that way. I don’t care if Meeka gave a laundry list of Tami faults, so what? Move on. God forbid Meeka had sustained injuries and sent to the hospital. Meeka should sue Tami, and Tami Shaunie should buy out Tami contract. Enough is Enough.

    The show needs a different format, and this season was pure mess. And Tami was fighting to prove a point, which is ridiculous, and telling Meeka about never being in the circle, because she doesn’t have what it takes. Puhleeze, the circle is Shaunie-Evelyn-Jennifer. That’s the circle, everyone else are associates to the circle.

  18. Every single one of those women especially Evelyn are insecure, and moronic, period. They all are an embarassment not just for black women but for women in general.

  19. No offense bohwe but black men aren’t necessarily the epitomy of class and elegance either, especially in the media. But to the subject Tami is a lunatic who needs to grow up and learn you don’t put your hands on people. Your not in high school in the real adult world you assault someone you get sued or arrested or both.

  20. Will this show just die already? Meeka should sue Tami, Shaunie, and the rest of the producers for what went down. Tami is a nutcase who needs professional help. She’s just a bully. She damn near 50 and walking around using phrases like “the popular people”. All these women are mental midgets.

  21. Latina is a culture, not an ethnicity. Plus, who cares if black men don’t want to be around black women. Also, don’t for one second think that Puerto Rican women’s stock has not dropped due to Evelyn. Jus like Chinese women were coming hard Wendi Deng for being a gold digger and a husband thief. Also, Italians are not fond of RHONJ and Jersey Shore. Only hood chicks are cheering Tami assaulting someone over words. These women are a disgrace to themselves, not African-American women.

  22. vh1 is becoming a hot azz ghetto mess period with the reality shows. they portray most of US in a negative stereotypical light with more to come.

  23. I just want to say this…. REAL reconizes real. Tammi is so real, I wouldn’t even watch the show if she wasn’t on it. Me and my friends always talk about that. When a —— step to you the wrong way , in this world we live in today, you are suppose to show a bitch what you working with. I knew that Mika was trouble from day one. She knew how Tammi was that’s why she started shit with her for publicity. She doesn’t even fit in. I LOVE Tammi!!!

  24. I disagree, meeka was running her mouth and of course tami should not of hit her, but meeka punk a** should of hit her back and stop acting like she so classy and her husband is not even known like that he is wack…… meeka took it to another level wanting to sue ,all these reality shows and people getting beat up nobody sued she a punk and wants to be known, she just thirsty for money and want attention

  25. I understand that Tami has been through some hardship, this is exactly why Meeka should not have started on her from the start.Meeka didn’t know anything about her to make ugly statements. You never know what will make a person snap, Meeka found out the hard way, she didn’t see any of the other women doing it, it wasn’t that they were afraid, they got alone by not trying to trigger her. Yes, Tami has issues it can’t be denied, there are people all over the world that don’t bother a soul, but don’t aggravated them, then you shall see and absolutely different person. I sorry, I truly Believe that Meeka would not Stop, she made a point to try and put Tami on the spot every chance she got. I think she got exactly what she asked for, she know it, girl.
