Montel to Teen: I Wasn't Really Going to Blow You Up

12/2/2007 4:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Montel WilliamsMontel Williams has issued an apology to Courtney Scott, the high school intern who he threatened to "blow up" Friday.

Williams sent the student an email via one of his producers, saying, "Regrettably I reacted childishly to the situation and for that I truly apologize to all concerned. I would like to invite Courtney and her family to appear on my show for a public apology." What a heart of fool's gold!

Montel confronted Scott and two other reporters after he mistakenly thought they had followed him to talk about a previous interview. The group was actually covering an assignment completely unrelated to him. Oops! A police report was filed by the student subsequent to the confrontation.

Yes he was going to do that - he threatened & the 17 year old shoe sue & settle quickly for a cool $500K after lawyer fees - so his masters degree would be paid for & a townhome & a Lexus SUV.

Montel also had to settle with female staff on his show - sex harrassment charges - he used to make them meet with him when he was in his underwear among other trangressions - allegations anyway.

They filed a police report? C'mon! Sure, he acted like a complete jackass and needs an ego check, but did they really think they were going to get blown up by a third rate talk show host?
