Rumors have been circling for quite some time now around Shaunie O’Neal and VH1’s decision to let go three cast members go from Basketball Wives.

According to TMZ, a decision has been made: Jennifer Williams, Royce Reed, and Kesha Nichols have all been fired from the show.

While VH1 has yet to release an official statement, sources allegedly said producers will be notifying the ladies any day now are dropping what they call “dead weight” from the show.

Royce was reportedly cut for not being allowed to talk about her ex Dwight Howard due to a 2009 court order, while Jennifer Williams was cut due to her lawsuit against Nia Crooks. According to the source, Kesha Nichols was cut for reportedly being too boring. Royce was also ostracized by the rest of the group and wasn’t able to participate in any group outings.

When TMZ contacted VH1 for a comment, the network had this to say: “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.”
