Jennifer Williams responds to Tami Roman’s hit on Tim Norman case: ‘Tami is classless’
'I’m saddened a Black woman is tearing another one down,' the 'Basketball Wives' star says in a response to cast mate Tami Roman
Tami Roman drew a sharp response from fellow VH1 “Basketball Wives” star Jennifer Williams after poking fun at Tim Norman‘s serious legal charges.
Roman spoke on Norman’s recent arrest in an Instagram video Thursday under her Bonnett Chronicles profile, which features video clips of her waxing humorous poetic about situations while wearing a hair bonnet and bathrobe.
Norman, who starred in the OWN reality series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” faces murder-for-hire charges in the killing of his nephew over a $450,000 life insurance policy.
Despite posting “May his family find peace and his nephew rest in Heaven” in the caption, she took an opportunity to talk down to her reality show foe Williams, who split with Norman in 2018.
“Jennifer, you escaped it girl… If he would do that to his nephew, bitch you didn’t have a chance,” Roman said in the video. “And he probably wouldn’t have got caught because no one would’ve gave a f–k.”
Williams, in a statement to Page Six, wasn’t pleased with the video.
“I don’t talk to Tami and I don’t know why she is making fun of a horrific situation where a life was lost.”
“Tami is classless, and it was done in poor taste while a family is trying to come to terms with the ultimate betrayal from one of their own,” she said. “That’s all I have to say about Tami’s tacky ass… With everything going on in the world and the climate within the Black community, I’m saddened a Black woman is tearing another one down.”
Norman allegedly hired Waiel “Wally” Yaghnam to perform the murder on 21-year-old Andre Montgomery in 2016, according to Riverfront Times.
Yaghnam, who was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, helped produce numerous songs on Nelly‘s 2002 multi-platinum album Nellyville, including the hit single “#1.”
