Katt Williams's Former Assistant Blasts Him in Lawsuit

Ever wonder what it's like the work for the bad boy comedian?

Published March 23, 2017

Katt Williams is in legal trouble yet again.

The comedian, who has had his fair share of ups and downs in recent years, is now being sued by a member of his own team. His former assistant Yadira Torres filed court documents revealing just what it's like to work for the wild Katt, and based on her account, his employees probably deserve some kind of hazard pay.

According to TMZ, legal documents state that Williams didn’t pay Torres what she was owed for her work. He also abused her verbally, and once “restrained” her in a hotel room for three hours as a form of punishment. Torres also says that Williams once left her in an Atlanta airport with no money or ticket home, and identifies herself as the woman Williams punched in a July 2016 incident that lead to Williams’s arrest.

She is suing for unspecified damages.
