Jennifer Williams alleges abuse from Tim Norman and stalking, Norman denies claims

Williams and Norman’s relationship lasted for about a year. It’s not certain when things took a turn for the worst but according to her, Norman’s temperament became increasingly aggressive.

She accuses Norman of being jealous and cold toward her at times. She also says she witnessed Norman get physical with his employees and others, including one of Norman’s ex-girlfriends.

During season 7 of Basketball Wives, Williams’ storyline centered on her journey to protect herself against Norman’s alleged stalking. In a 2017 interview with Bossip, Williams says she began staying with friends instead of her home in LA after discovering that Norman was in town following her and not in Texas as she believed.

She claims she feared for her life due to Norman’s criminal past. He served a 10-year prison sentence for armed robbery.

“He is a convicted felon, I know he has guns, so I decided to file an incident report,” she says.

A judge granted her a temporary restraining order against Norman. Despite such, Norman maintains his innocence. He alleges Williams desired to be on reality television and used him to do so. He also says she became bitter when he refused to propose to her and requested a restraining order out of spite.
