Williams Sued By Studio Owner
KATT WILLIAMS is in trouble over another allegedly unpaid bill - a recording studio owner is suing him for $1 million (£666,667) amid allegations the star attacked him when he was challenged over an outstanding debt.
The rapper/comedian has seen his financial problems spiral over the last few months, with bosses at a construction company recently filing suit against the star for allegedly failing to settle a bill for work carried out at his home in Calabasas, California last year (09).
He's now been targeted in a lawsuit from Merion Powers, who states Williams used his Atlanta, Georgia facilities to record comedy routines in October (09), but allegedly failed to pay for the studio time.
In a lawsuit filed at Fulton County Superior Court, Powers claims the star's dog attacked one of his own pets during the recording sessions and he later met up with Williams to discuss the incident and collect the $28,600 (£19,067) bill.
The studio owner alleges he was restrained by one of the funnyman's bodyguards, while the star punched him in the face and threatened to kill him, according to Allhiphop.com.
Powers is seeking at least $1 million (£666,667) in damages for assault, battery, false imprisonment, damage to property and intentional infliction of emotional distress, as well as the allegedly unpaid recording bill.
