So many rumors have been going around about comedian Katt Williams that I initially didn’t believe it when I read that he’d been admitted into a psychiatric hospital. First he was missing, then some said he’d died in a car crash, this latest rumor turned out to be true. Williams, while visiting relatives in South Carolina, was admitted to Tuomey Medical Center for evaluation after relatives say he was “acting bizarre”:
The report quoted Sumter Police Department Maj. Perry Herod as confirming that police responded to a call about Williams on Friday morning at the Mount Vernon Inn.
“And officers did talk with him, and then my understanding is he went on his own to Tuomey Hospital,” Herod said, according to TheItem.com. The hospital would not provide any information on whether Williams was treated there.
MTV.com posted this statement from Williams’ spokesperson Yvette Shearer: “Following an arduous 300 shows and an 18-month touring schedule that left him incredibly fatigued, Katt, a veteran of MTV’s ‘Wild ‘N Out,’ felt compelled to be with his family in an effort to deal with his stress. While doing so, he is under a doctor’s care.” (Source)
