For Real? Katt Williams Attacked a Woman for Saying Kevin Hart's Name

Plus, a different woman sues him for having her beat up by witches.

Published March 18, 2016

Katt Williams has been arrested so many times and faces so many different charges and lawsuits we've honestly lost track of his rap sheet. But the stories of the latest two women who are trying to take the troubled comedian to court may be the most bizarre in recent weeks to come at Katt.

First, an Atlanta woman is claiming that Williams attacked her on February 28, the day after he challenged Kevin Hart to a million-dollar comedy battle, for telling him that "Kevin Hart is funnier anyway" when Williams refused to take a picture with her.

“The next thing I know he's charging at me. He actually hit me right here in my left temple [and] tackled me to the ground,” the woman, named Selena, told WSB-TV. She adds that Williams's bodyguards tried to stop her and her friends from getting in their car and driving away, and that Williams pointed a gun at them through the window and started laughing.

Selena and her friends, some of whom say their phones were stolen, are now asking prosecutors to bring felony charges against Williams.

Oh, but that's not all. Another woman, this time in Los Angeles, says she got a beat down by some of Williams's henchwomen at his Malibu home when she accidentally used his private bathroom. The woman, Jamila Majesty, says Williams told her, "No one uses [my] bathroom," and then the women started punching her. She says the beatings continued for three hours, and that she lost consciousness several times, was bloodied, and Williams burned her face with a Newport cigarette.

She said one of the women had a book on her about "teachings of sorcery and spells" and that the group was burning things in a strange fire. 

Majesty says the incident took place almost two years ago, and she's now suing for assault and battery, false imprisonment and emotional distress, according to TMZ. As for why she didn't come forward sooner, Majesty says she was afraid that Williams would take revenge.

All this has piled up while Williams has been out on bail for his recent arrests over other charges, stemming from punching out a pool store employee, brawling at a Beanie Sigel concert, assaulting five women in Atlanta and holding his own bodyguard hostage. What a mess.
