PROBLEMS: Katt Williams
COMEDIAN AND actor Katt Williams is being sued by his fans after he allegedly got into a fight with an audience member during his stand-up comedy show.
A member of the audience, who attended the 5000 seat Wells Fargo Theatre in Denver on November 16, has filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of those in attendance against Williams and the promotion company Live Nation, claiming he did not perform.
According to The Oakland Tribune, the suit is claiming that Williams “confronted a heckler, took his clothes off and attempted to fight at least three audience members.”
The suit seeks to compensate the audience member and “all others who paid money” for the show.
The 41-year-old allegedly started the show by doing push-ups, taking off his shirt, mumbling and dosing himself with water. The performance came to an end after Williams jumped off the stage to confront a heckler less than half an hour into his set and was removed by security.
This lawsuit is the latest in a long line of legal and criminal problems for the troubled star. Williams was released from prison on November 15 after being arrested in connection with a man being hit with a bottle in Oakland, California.
He is also facing a $5 Million lawsuit filed earlier this month by his personal assistant, who claims Williams hit her in the face with a closed fist, causing permanent eye injury.
