‘Basketball Wives’ Star Brittish Williams Facing ‘Additional Charges’ In Insurance Fraud Criminal Case


Prosecutors revealed they plan to bring additional criminal charges against Basketball Wives star Brittish Williams.

According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline, the government has informed the court it intends to

“present a superseding Indictment to a Grand Jury before the trial date for additional charges.”

However, prosecutors are remaining quiet about the charges they plan on bringing against Brittish Williams.

Brittish’s attorney, Beau B. Brindley, told RadarOnline,

“The government continues to make allegations that far exceed any actual evidence in their possession. Whatever the new charges may be, we look forward to addressing them.”

As previously reported, in 2021, a grand jury indicted Brittish Williams on five felony charges of misuse of a Social Security number, four charges of bank fraud, three charges of making false statements to the IRS, three charges of wire fraud and three charges of aggravated identity theft. She entered a not-guilty plea at the U.S. District Court in St. Louis shortly after her arrest.

Williams is accused of using fake social security numbers to acquire loans in 2017. Prosecutors claim that in 2018 and 2019 she allegedly deposited various amounts of checks from $4,500 to $5,800 into accounts she managed and quickly took out the money before banks were aware they were fraudulent. The actual owners of the checks allegedly didn’t know she deposited the funds.

Prosecutors also allege that Brittish claimed fake dependents (with false names and social security numbers) on her tax returns from 2017 to 2019.

Last year, the reality tv star– who was on house arrest–motioned the court to have her ankle bracelet removed. Brittish claimed that the monitor was costing her a number of lucrative business deals – most notably a $30k deal with billionaire entrepreneur Rihanna’s brand lingerie line.

Her lawyer said,

“This lost opportunity cost Ms. Williams at least $30,000 with additional payments that would have been available for Instagram appearances and posts.”

Brindley continued,

“The producers of [Basketball Wives] do not want the ankle monitor to be visible. This creates stark limitations on the outfits and costuming that Ms. Williams can utilize. Ms. Williams does not engage in work for which she gets to choose her own outfits and clothes.”

The court granted her motion.

Williams’ trial is scheduled to begin on April 17, 2023.
