Katt Needs Prayer Ya’ll: Comedian Sued For $5 Million Over Punching Female Assistant
I really want Katt Williams to get off the struggle bus at the next possible stop. Every time you hear about this man these days it has nothing to do with him cracking jokes, he’s either having drama with his kids, pulling out guns on people, or getting physical with women! Case in point, TMZ reports that Katt’s female assistant just filed a lawsuit for $5 million claiming the comedian dealt blows to her face that have caused her permanent damage.
Melissa Ishage filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming she’d been working as Katt’s personal assistant — but on October 6th, things suddenly went sour at Katt’s house … when Katt attacked her, punching her and causing her “serious and permanent injuries.”
Melissa doesn’t explain why Katt flew into a rage — but claims she had to go to the hospital as a result of the beatdown … and now she wants at least $5 million from Katt to call it even.
Melissa’s attorney tells us, his client claims Katt struck her in the head and knocked her to the ground. The lawyer says police were called to the scene but no one was arrested. The incident is currently under investigation.
With a description that horrible, I’m curious how no one, i.e. Katt, was arrested during that altercation. I’m assuming Melissa no longer works for the funny man, and I’m thinking that $5 million suit may be the end of Katt’s bank account as the volatile comedian hasn’t had a major gig in a minute — and for good reason. Just November 1 he got into it with a heckler at a show in Denver and by the time all was said and done (code for he went all the way off), audience members were being given a refund. I really need him to get it together.
