|Keep it pimpin'! Katt Williams, known for his role as Money Mike in Friday After Next pulled a gun on people. One of the hip-hop community's most famous comedian plays most roles as a pimp or hustler in movies and television.|
However, this individual isn't really a rapper, but a comedian who appears in hip-hop videos, the famous Ice Cube movie Friday After Next, and the Boondocks by Aaron McGruder.
Katt Williams a Los Angeles comedian who is known for his slick talking comedy skits is in custody after he allegedly pulled a firearm on fellow actor Faizon Love.
Both are comedians who appeared in the Friday movie series with Ice Cube.
Williams is a recovering drug addict who lost his fight in soberness.
Love claims that the 39-year old actor/comedian pulled an unloaded firearm on him after a drunken outburst and scuffle with him. But the entertainment news agitator E! reports that the comedian was outside of hot spot the Supperclub when the incident took place. He was subsequently released without any charges being filed.
"Katt Williams never stepped one foot into Supperclub," Supperclub owner Abdi Manvi tells E! News. "He was apprehended in the parking lot behind our building. Supperclub's security stationed at the back door of the restaurant/club witnessed Katt getting into an argument with another man, and they began to scuffle."
"The police were called to deal with the issue, and he was discovered to be armed," Manvi added. "Many times, Supperclub is used as a logistical landmark that the police call out to mark the area to which they respond. However, he was not inside the club."
LAPD confirms that Williams "was detained outside of the Supperclub, not inside the location."
The gun was reportedly found in Williams' car and two other members of his entourage were also taken into custody for questioning, with one of them booked on an unrelated traffic warrant.
A rep for Katt could not be reached for comment. But the Friday After Next star told the site while he was in cuffs that the whole thing was a mixup.
"They made another mistake. Third one in six months after settling with me," said Williams.
|Faizon Love, comedian and actor.|
Love called into TMZ Live Friday to explain what went down Tuesday night -- when Katt pulled a gun on him at a parking lot outside Supperclub in Hollywood.
Love says ... when Katt pointed the weapon at him, he 100% feared getting shot, explaining ... "When someone pulls a gun and they on that narcotics ... you don't know what's gonna happen."
One of Love's homeboys managed to snatch the gun from Katt -- and discovered it was unloaded.
Katt was arrested that night for a possible gun violation, but was later released from custody -- and no charges have been filed.
As for what caused the beef, Faizon wouldn't say. It's something that happened 6 months ago, but he insists it was NOT about money.
