Katt Williams Facing Class Action Suit Over Bizarre Oakland Performance
Katt Williams has another lawsuit on the books. Apparently fans were not satisfied with his show in Oakland, Calif. where he babbled incoherently, threatened to fight audience members, and left after only 10 minutes on stage.
A class action lawsuit was filed by Brian Herline last Wednesday (Nov. 21), on behalf of the show’s attendees, and seeks retribution from Williams and the show’s promoter, Live Nation.
The Oakland-based Tidrick Law Firm, announced the filing in an email to Hip-Hop Wired, detailing that Williams not only “confronted a heckler” but “took his clothes off,” before “abruptly” ending the entire show. “Mr. Williams failed to live up to his obligation as a performer,” attorney Joel Young told us in a statement. “The audience members deserve their money back.”
Aside from this newest legal action, the comedian is facing a $5 million lawsuit from a former assistant claiming to have been attacked by him last month. Additionally, Delvahn Moselly-Davis, the 18-year-old man who had a bottle cracked over his head by Williams, filed a lawsuit against the 39-year-old days after the incident.
Williams has yet to speak out on the latest in a series of public meltdowns.
At press time, Live Nation did not respond to Hip-Hop Wired’s request for comment.
