Rick Ross 40th Birthday Celebration

Another day, another bizarre Katt Williams story…perhaps a bit more bizarre than ever? The comedian is being sued by a woman named Jamila Majesty. She claims Williams invited her to his home, refused to let her use the bathroom, and proceed to let a group of unknown women he had staying with him beat her up and perform Wiccan sorcery on her. Majesty is suing for assault and battery, false imprisonment and emotional distress. [TMZ]
