• Katt Williams kidnapping, assault lawsuit dismissed

    Katt Williams lawsuit dismissedNews broke late last week that Katt Williams was slammed with another lawsuit, this time for $3 million for an alleged “gang-style” assault on a female comedian and kidnapping her when she tried to escape.

    TMZ reported the shocking claims from Williams’ former tour partner, Ashima Franklin, who says Williams has a history of abusing her going all the way back to 2012 when he hit her in the face and threw piping hot food in her face followed by asking her why she thought she even had the right to eat. The suit claiming his abuse exacerbated when they were touring together earlier this year, with Franklin alleging Williams bragged about having “million dollar bitches” and calling her a “hillbilly, Alabama, backwoods ass three dollar pussy bitch.” The suit claimed the next day Williams blocked her from leaving while he and two other women attacked her, giving her a swollen face and injuries to her chest, arms and legs.

    However, Williams responded to the most recent lawsuit, saying Franklin’s attorney simply filed a repeat motion that was already resolved.  “Ashima accepted a ‘small amount’ of cash to squash the drama, and even signed a settlement agreement,” TMZ reported after the original news broke.” As a result of the miscommunication between Williams and Franklin’s attorneys, Franklin’s newest suit has been dismissed.

    Katt Williams has a long history of bad behavior and brushes with the law.
