The saga continues… On Wednesday, we reported that Katt Williams announced his retirement from stand-up comedy on a Seattle street to a local news anchor after being ejected from the hotel he was staying in. It seems that a mere 2 days later, the comedian has changed his mind or maybe his management team has changed it for him. TMZ is reporting that Katt’s managers released a statement that Katt actually is not retiring and provided an explanation behind Katt’s bizarre retirement.
“Katt is definitely NOT retiring. He will be moving forward with the tour … Friday is Texas, Saturday New Orleans, and on to Alabama.The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle. He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from this point forward.
Katt’s retirement was the only thing that went down during his visit to Seattle. If you recall, he was also arrested for his involvement in a bar fight where he threatened the bars owner and patrons with a pool cue and tossed a cigarette at a woman. As a result of the incident, Katt was charged with two counts of fourth degree misdemeanor assaults; however according to the Daily News, the comedian didn’t show up to his court hearing yesterday in relation to the assaults.
Katt’s attorney, Thomas McAllister, told the judge that his client was under the impression that he did not have to appear in court at the hearing. The hearing has been rescheduled for next week.
It is very evident that Katt’s mental and emotional health is plummeting, but I wonder when the people around him are going to say enough is enough and get him some help.
Do you think Katt really wanted to retire, but his management isn’t allowing him to?
