Funnyman Katt Williams is facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit over accusations he assaulted a female assistant.
The troubled comic is being sued for $5 million (£3.1 million) by his former employee Melissa Ishage.
Ishage filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Country Superior Court claiming Williams punched her, causing "serious and permanent injuries", in the alleged attack on 16 October (12).
She claims she was hospitalised as a result of the incident and is demanding damages for her injuries.
Ishage's attorney says his client alleges Williams knocked her to the ground and that police were called to the scene but no one was arrested.
The incident is currently under investigation, according to Tmz.com.
