Katt Williams

Sued for $5 Million for

Allegedly Punching Assistant

11/9/2012 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

More legal trouble for Katt Williams -- the comic has just been sued for $5 million after allegedly socking his female assistant .... and causing her permanent injuries.

Melissa Ishage filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming she'd been working as Katt's personal assistant -- but on October 6th, things suddenly went sour at Katt's house ... when Katt attacked her, punching her and causing her "serious and permanent injuries."

Melissa doesn't explain why Katt flew into a rage -- but claims she had to go to the hospital as a result of the beatdown ... and now she wants at least $5 million from Katt to call it even.

Melissa's attorney tells us, his client claims Katt struck her in the head and knocked her to the ground. The lawyer says police were called to the scene but no one was arrested. The incident is currently under investigation.

Calls to Katt's rep were not returned.

Katt, you made me laugh not so long ago. Thanks for that. Maybe it would be a good idea to back up, and step away from show biz bull for a second. Take a deep breath, be thankful you had fans once and pull it together. Check your crew. As you know, the door of fame swings both ways. It can make you and it can and will bust your azz if you F up. Maybe get out of the country (France, UK, Africa, Denmark etc.) for a few months to clear your head and chart a new course. The one your on is a dangerous trap. It's up to you. Don't let it all end in tears. That's where this is going if... Just sayin'. For what it's worth. [end of sermon]

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Surprised a bitch could slap someone so hard as to cause that much injury. Guess Ms. Katt went to fight school! Meowwww!!!!

It is because of these fake claims that people like me (ones that do truly have an injury) have to be driven insane by insurance companies. I have a broken neck 4 inches of dead guy leg bone trying to graft in and a 3.5 titanium plate screwed in as well. But I constantly have to deal with subrogation papers and other red tape nightmares caused by fakery of get rich quick *******s like this. If the cops made no arrests obviously there was no trauma seen.
