Katt Williams – “My Employees Embezzled $59 million From Me!”
With more money comes more problems! Emmy award-winning comedian Katt Williams has never been one to stray from controversy, but this particular incident wasn’t his fault! During a recent interview, Katt revealed that he was robbed blind by several employees and associates of his in an embezzlement scam.
Katt said this of how he discovered millions were stolen from him through a U.S. Department of Justice investigation:
“In my search for who was the enemy that was causing all these things to repeatedly happen to me over and over again when they shouldn’t, we uncovered that it was actually my people that was involved.”
“We didn’t really know that until the Department of Justice started indicting these people for the embezzlement of $59 million from Katt Williams.”
Despite immediately firing those staff members, Katt says they attempted to blackmail him for more money in retaliation. He was even almost blamed and indicted for the money being stolen from him! He continued:
“They thought I had found some way to sequester the funds until they actually dug in and realized ‘why would I be money laundering my own money.’ It’s been a lot, and a lot of it you can’t really talk about. It’s ongoing.”
