Katt Williams Ex Assistant Says Comedian Trying To Avoid Lawsuit
On January 28, Angelina submitted court documents claiming that Katt was served last year. However, she says he has failed to respond to the allegations in the complaint or show up in court. She filed a motion for default, which is the first step to obtaining a default judgement against Katt.
Here’s the backstory: Triplett-Hill hit Katt with a $1 million dollar federal lawsuit. She accuses him of battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.
She says she initially met him in 2003, while working as a personal assistant for The Isley Brothers. She says she worked with him periodically and around September 2014, he contracted her to assist him while shooting a film in California.
In her lawsuit, she alleges that he attacked her on September 12th, 2014. She says that they were on set, when Katt became enraged when she stepped away to take a phone call. She says that he confronted her, outside of set, near his private car. She claims that the comedian violently lunged towards her, snatched her cell phone out of her hand and angrily threw her phone inside the vehicle. She says that she witnessed Katt physically attack other women, so she became extremely frightened and fearful for her safety.
She says that after he threw her phone and began shouting obscenities at her, she grabbed her phone and began to walk away. She says he continued to curse her out. When she began to respond with her own verbal insults, she alleges Katt struck her in the face multiple times. She says that she hit the ground, as a result of his attack, slamming her head against the concrete and rendering her unconscious.
She was rushed to Santa Monica UCLA hospital for treatment of her injuries and remained hospitalized for a few days. She says she immediately quit her job. She says that she now suffers severe emotional distress as a result of Katt’s attack and is suing.
