More trouble for comedian Katt Williams. He was in town to do a show at Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Nov. 16, and despite being arrested for battery a few days prior, he took the stage.

But the show was so bad that a class-action lawsuit has been filed against Williams and promoter Live Nation on behalf of everyone who bought a ticket, according to TMZ. The lawsuit claims the show ended in 10 minutes and involved Williams confronting a heckler, taking his clothes off and attempting “to fight at least three audience members.” Amateur videos of the show are on YouTube, and he can be heard uttering, “I am never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever going to come back to Oakland.”

Score one for Halle

Halle Berry picks breathtakingly handsome men whose inner character is quite the opposite. Her ex, Gabriel Aubry, arrived on Thanksgiving to drop off their daughter, Nahla, and somehow a gigantic fistfight ensued between him and her new beau, Olivier Martinez, according to news reports. Aubry was arrested and slapped with a temporary order of protection. Berry and Aubry are in a bitter custody battle, so this might help her win full-time custody of her daughter.

What the Puck?

Remember David “Puck” Rainey from “The Real World” in San Francisco? He got kicked out of the house for flicking boogers and harassing HIV-positive Pedro Zamora (who eventually succumbed to AIDS, to which Puck reportedly said, “Good riddance”).

According to Us magazine, Rainey will be serving at least a year in prison for a stalking offense. He has previously been arrested on two different occasions for battery and “felony corporal injury on a spouse.” Hmm … maybe he shouldn’t have allegedly backed out of being on “Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew?”
