Katt Williams, comedian extraordinaire, has been anything but shy when talking about his hair. He’s lauded himself as a perm wearing, faux pimp with “luxurious” hair. Let him tell it. Yes, there have been times where Katt’s hair has been fabulous. But there have also been times where his hair, and we’re sure Katt would agree, looked a hot mess. Check out the highs and the lows along the way.

Katt Williams is known for getting into trouble, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that he has a huge heart. The 39-year-old comedian shocked one of his Boston fans, who happens to be wheelchair-bound and in dire need of a kidney transplant, when he invited the woman backstage to meet him following one of his shows. Once she was backstage Katt offered her words of encouragement, $1,000 cash and an autographed note that read:

“God never leaves.”

According to TMZ, Katt learned of the fan’s unfortunate situation when one of his security guards saw her crying in the audience at the conclusion of his show. When the body guard inquired about why she was crying, she insisted that she was releasing tears of joy because she hadn’t laughed in such a long time. She also told him about her current situation. When the security guard informed Katt of what the woman told him, Katt reportedly invited her backstage, which is where he presented her with the monetary gift folded in a sheet of paper.

The woman later told TMZ that she was shocked to find ten 100 dollar bills in the sheet of paper, because she initially thought he’d given her a package full of weed. She described the gift as an “awesome surprise.”

How touching!

Beyonce is still catching a lot of shade from her Bow Down video — and the fact that she hasn’t released that “Grown Woman” track yet — but she’s not the only celebrity whose fans may be changing teams. These celebs have annoyed, harassed and stood up their fans for so long that they’re finally moving on.

If you’re sick to death of Keyshia’s mouth, you’re not alone. At a recent performance, Keyshia took shots at the audience when they didn’t clap loud enough and they took shots right back.

Here’s what one of Keyshia’s former fans had to say on Twitter:

“This Beyotch MAAAAAAD, the crowd wasn’t rockin hard w/ her she said “At ths point in my career if u not rockin w/ me u can get out” lmaooooo u not Jay-Z or Beyonce ppl ain’t rockin w/ EVERY song. ..Aye my tickets were free soooo umnmm I can say this “Keyshia a rat w/ money” lol her stage presence says “cheese please” lmaooo”

This on top of her Beyonce shade and hesitance to claim being just black are not bidding well for her future in the business.

Good Lord. I honestly don’t know how Vincent Herbert stands it. She drives her sisters crazy, she stays on Twitter with some mess and I know I’m not the only one who’d like to cut her microphone off. There wouldn’t still be a reason to watch The Braxtons without Tamar but I’m cool with that too.

Everybody, including celebrities, is allowed an eff up or two, but the people on this list have already maxed out their get out of jail passes –literally—which has landed them a spot right on the, “they just ain’t gone ever act right” list. We’re sure you’re probably as done with these entertainers as we are so the people on this list should not surprise you at all — unless you believe in 45 chances.

Chris Brown belongs on the top of any “Refuse to Act Right” post. Just in case you still haven’t heard, Chris Brown recently cursed out comedienne Jenny Johnson on Twitter. He tweeted that he looked old. She fired back: “Being a worthless piece of s**t can really age a person.”

Instead of remembering how his last few outbursts hurt his career he told her he was going to sh**t in her mouth. Really Breezy? Not only can you not take Chris Brown anywhere, you can’t even let him have a Twitter account.

The Gloves Are Off: Katt Williams Calls Jamie Foxx Gay and Slams Him For His Role In ‘Django Unchained’

News headlines rarely place comedian Katt Williams on stage. We’re normally reporting about him being court, in handcuffs or physically assaulting some unsuspecting store employee. Not this time though, Katt was actually on stage and out of police custody.

According to The Grio, Black America’s problem child had a few choice words for actor Jamie Foxx during one of his recent stand up shows in Los Angeles, California. During the set, the troubled comedian pulled no punches as he called the actor out as a down-low brother. “Who’s gay? Jamie Foxx,” Katt said before he went on to claim that he even knew of a man who Jamie had sexual relations with.

“I can even tell you the name of the dude he f**ked. His name is Marcus Anthony; he’s the only dude signed to Jamie Foxx’s label.”

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Katt even went on to bash Jamie for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated movie, Django Unchained. 

“F**k Jamie Foxx and the Django Unchained check he cashed,” Williams said.

“They offered me the script and I said, ‘Any ni**a that do this deserves to die. And the next thing I heard, Jamie Foxx was in makeup,” the comedian spat.

Ironically, in a recent interview with Playboy Magazine, Tarantino revealed a few names of A-list actors whom he considered for the leading role in the film, some of which included Will Smith and Michael K. Williams. Katt’s name never left his lips.

What is more interesting than Katt’s claims that he was considered for Jamie’s role in the film is that Katt actually has beef with Jamie that dates back to  more than four years ago. Why do you ask? Well, according to Bossip.com, Jamie instigated drama between Williams and Steve Harvey back in 2008. I guess Katt is still salty about it.

“What Had Happened Was”: Katt Williams Says He Slapped Target Employee Only Because He Used The N-Word

After an extremely hot mess of a year, I’m sure no one is more ready for a fresh start in 2013 than Katt Williams. He’s been arrested more times in one year than most people run into trouble with the law in their whole lives, and he’s had numerous altercations with people, including his assistant, folks attending his shows, bystanders, and of course, a random white guy at a Target in California. The video, for most, was just another example of a gifted fella continuing to spiral out of control, but Williams says that there’s more to the clip than what people’s eyes are seeing. According to the embattled comedian, he only slapped the victim, Forrest Liebenberg, because the man called him the N-word of all things.

According to TMZ, during a show at The Comedy Store in Hollywood (who is really still paying to see him live after all the mic slapping and arguing he’s been doing with folks???), Williams said he warned the man to watch his mouth, and when he didn’t, he had to get pimpin’-pimpin’ on him:

“Let me tell you what the dude at Target said … ‘Your assistant is already suing you, you p***y a** n***er. I said did you just say the N-word in front of Katt Williams? He said, ‘you say it all the time.’ I said, ‘Say it again and watch what happens. End of story. If you white and you call me a n***a, I’m gonna punch you in your muthaf****n mouth too.”

While I’m still side-eyeing the fact that he spoke of himself in third person, is it weird that I actually believe Williams? And I say that because of the fact that the employee came out to various news outlets after the incident saying that Target fired him. There was speculation as to why he was given the boot, and I’m sure Liebenberg was trying to get some sympathy so that maybe he could sue since he felt that he was fired because they thought he might have leaked the tape of the incident. However, Target even put out a message saying the firing had NOTHING to do with the tape getting out. So why was he fired? Well, this could be a reason…if it’s true. And Liebenberg could have had a history of acting a fool at work. Ironically, TMZ says they tried to reach out to Liebenberg, who was so easy to get in touch with after the incident, but after multiple attempts, he didn’t get back to them. Veeeeery interesting indeed that he’s MIA all of a sudden…

Check out the clip below, courtesy of TMZ, where Katt breaks down the incident. He also attributes similar disrespect to the early retirement of talents like Dave Chappelle. Do you think Williams’s story is true?

We feel bad for Katt Williams, really bad. At first it was fun to watch him showing out all over the western seaboard, but eventually we realized he was clearly in the middle of a very public meltdown and there was no one there to help him. Though a lot of bad things have come out of Katt’s constant screw-ups, we have gained some important information and learned a few things along the way— not the least of which being crack is beyond wack. But here are a few other interesting tidbits that revealed themselves while Katt went on a rampage.

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?
