Katt Williams has undoubtedly gone through tough times during the past couple of years, but has managed to overcome them. With the success Williams has had, the fame may have gotten to the head of those around him. The comedian is now claiming that people in his circle did him wrong when it came to his money.
In a recent interview with Jemele Hill‘s Spotify podcast Jemele Hill Is UnBothered, Williams claims that people close to him reportedly stole $59 million from him. According to Williams, he was being investigated by the Department of Justice and he found out that he had been missing the $59 million dollar amount. He went on to find out that multiple members of his entourage were responsible for the money lost.
“In my search for who was this enemy that was causing all these things to repeatedly happen to me over and over again when it shouldn’t, we uncovered that it was actually my people that was involved,” he said. “We didn’t really know that until the Department of Justice started indicting these people for the embezzlement of $59 million from Katt Williams. Once that happened, everybody got fired, but in everybody getting fired, now their way of retaliation was to make sure that he doesn’t get any of his information…it’s basically low-class extortion.”
It’s unfortunate that this happened to Katt, but that should serve as an example to constantly pay attention to your finances.
