The Comedian Katt Williams is Facing Another Legal Controversy, But This Time, He is the Victim


There is nothing worse than being stabbed in the back by the people you trust the most. Especially if the money that you’ve been working hard for gets stolen by your own trusted staff.

The American humorist Katt Williams recently discovered that some of his employees have been putting the joke on him. On a recent segment of the Spotify podcast Jemele Hill Is Unbothered, Williams mentioned an on-going embezzlement analysis against his crew.

Katt Williams’ Arrest History

The 47-year old stand-up comedian has faced many legal controversies over the years. He was taken into custody on November 13, 2006, after being caught in possession of a stolen firearm at the Los Angeles International Airport. He rendered three days in prison, put under probation for three years, and had to pay for restitution.

Williams was once again arrested four years later. He allegedly swindled coins and pieces of jewels worth $3,500. The law enforcement charged him with trespassing and burglary. He was a free-man a day after the arrest on a $40,000 bail.

He then faced another legal allegation on June 11, 2011 with three other gals who assaulted a tractor driver. Based on the driver’s statement, the three women threw rocks on him out of the blue. Police charged Williams for felony intimidation of a witness but he bailed out for $50,000.

2012: His Worst Year

Katt Williams has faced several charges over the years

2012 was intense for him. He faced several legal complaints including an assault on November 15, class action lawsuit on November 16 and child endangerment on December 28 among other charges. “New year; new me” wasn’t Williams’ New Year’s resolution, as a pending motorbike charge caused him another arrest on January 8, 2013.

On October 29, 2014, a female photojournalist in Beverly Hills accused him of stealing her camera, although Williams denied the allegation. He took an anger management program for one year and was under probation for three years.

2015 was brighter for Williams, although in 2016 he received several battery charges during the first seven months of the year. He later faced charges of a second-degree damage to a property on September 15 of the same year. Another fourth-degree assault on October 6, 2018, completed Williams’ legal record.

This Time, He is the Victim

Katt Williams fired the employees who have been embezzling cash from him

Williams is currently involved in another legal controversy, but this time, he is the victim. Some of his employees allegedly embezzled $59 million from the comedian. The U.S. Department of Justice unraveled the illegal activities of his staff while they were investigating Williams’ finances. The comic immediately terminated the employment of everyone involved in the case.

Williams also confessed that his former employees even tried to squeeze out some more cash on him after getting fired by blackmailing him.
