Katt Williams Assault Victim Wants Comedian’s Past Crimes in Trial
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, the woman allegedly jumped and assaulted at the direction of Katt Williams has headed to court, demanding a judge not ban evidence of the comedian’s past crimes in the upcoming trial.
Here’s the latest: On July 10th, Jamila Majesty fired back at Katt’s attempt to ban all evidence of his character or past crimes from the upcoming trial. In her opposition motion, she explains the court should allow such testimony due to it being relevant evidence of the comedian’s past similar conduct.
She says the evidence he plans to present shows Katt acted with intent when he assaulted her and that he was aware what he did was wrong and the situation was no mistake or accident.
Majesty points to Katt previously engaging in act of brutal physical violence and the jury needs to see the evidence to know it was an intentional act of battery.
She is demanding the judge deny the comedian and allow her to show the jury his past criminal acts during the trial.
Here’s the backstory: Last year, Katt was sued by actress, Jamila Majesty, accusing him of organizing a beat down. She even claimed that he was involved in Wiccan sorcery.
Majesty explained she went to the comedian’s Malibu home two years ago. She was invited to the home and when she arrived, five other women were there and things quickly went south after she used the comedian’s bathroom.
Katt immediately told her that “no one uses [my] bathroom” and then the other women began punching her. She claimed the beatings lasted for three hours, during which she lost consciousness several times. She also alleges that she was left bloodied and the comedian even burned her in the face with his cigarette.
One of the women involved in the beat down allegedly had a book open which contained the “teachings on sorcery and spells” and that she had a fire that was being fed “unusual things.”
Majesty was eventually able to escape around 1:30am and drove home without calling the police, fearing what Katt would do. She sued for assault, battery, emotional distress and false imprisonment.
On June 28th, Katt filed docs pleading for the judge to prohibit from the upcoming trial any evidence or testimony or reference to his character, other lawsuits against him, or crimes or other bad acts that relate to others not the plaintiff.
The comedian said allowing Majesty to introduce evidence, elicit testimony or refer to other alleged bad acts would create substantial danger of undue prejudice & confusion along with misleading the jury.
Katt said if allowed, it would make the jury believe he has a bad character or propensity for criminal behavior — all in an attempt to punish him. He is demanding the judge not allow the evidence into the trial, saying it would give the jury a negative impression of him based on facts not related to the case at hand.
