Why Aren’t We Surprised? Katt Williams Un-Retires And Skips Seattle Arraignment

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?

    Suge Knight wants his money thats why he isn’t retiring. Hopefully though someone will take this mans best interest into consideration and get him the much needed help he needs. I don’t know if this is mental illness or drug addiction or both, but he needs to chill for him and his kids sake.

    His management is probably not allowing him to retire now because if venues begin suing him for contract breaches, that certainly won’t help him. He doesn’t have to retire. How about if he just takes a hiatus? He definitely can’t keep throwing the tantrums. I don’t know what’s setting him off but you don’t get to act like that just because you’re having a bad day. It’s not cute when two-year olds do it, so I don’t think a grown man gets to hit people and act out either.

    Will somebody please tell Katt Williams to sit down? He has made the news almost everyday. He need to Iyanla “Fix my Life or Dr. Sherry from Braxton Family Values.

    I don’t think he really wants to retire seeing how he was crying when he said it…but I do think he needs to take a well-needed leave of absence to get himself together. The showbiz is clearly wearing him down. He looked like a sick dog on that news show. He needs to get back to the original Money Mike days!

    Not sure why everyone is letting this toddler act a fool… he needs a permanent time out!

    Another chapter to add to the midget gone mad chronicles.

    He needs a better team, because they know good and well that he shouldn’t be proceeding with this tour! He’s clearly unstable! Smh…

    The people around him couldn’t care less about helping him out. It’s obvious to everyone not making money off of Katt Williams that he is in dire need of some help. Unfortunately the only thing that matters now his getting him to his shows and collecting a check. Sad situation.

  • realadulttalk

    At what point does someone get this man the help he’s obviously in dire need of? I don’t see this ending well.
