Comedian Katt Williams' bizarre on-stage meltdown has landed the "Friday After Next" star on the receiving end of a lawsuit, filed on behalf of those who paid for nothing but a "non-performance."

Williams and promoter Live Nation have been sued in a class action lawsuit filed by Brian Herline on behalf of all attendees of the comedian's Nov. 16 show in Oakland, Calif., TMZ reported. The lawsuit claims Williams "confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members," before ending the show in just 10 minutes.

The suit, which was filed Nov. 21 in Alameda County, Calif., requests unspecified damages for "Katt Williams's non-performance," according to TMZ.

"Williams failed to perform," reads the lawsuit against Williams, obtained by Zap2It. "The audience members deserve their money back. Therefore, Plaintiff brings this action on behalf of himselfindividually and on behalf of all others who paid money for a show and got nothing but Katt Williams's non-performance."

Williams' meltdown on the Oracle Arena stage, during which he delivered a rambling monologue and was escorted out by his own security after challenging an audience member to a fight, angered fans who paid between $33 and $94 for tickets, according to the Mercury News.

"It was the weirdest thing I've ever seen in my life," Erick Lucero, who was working the floor as a security guard, told Mercury News.

The lawsuit against Williams is the latest in a string of odd behavior and legal woes.

Williams was arrested on Nov. 14 in connection with a nightclub brawl. On Nov. 9, Williams was sued by his former female assistant who alleges that the comedian attacked her at his house in October. He was also detained in Los Angeles last month after he allegedly pulled a gun on actor Faizon Love during a heated argument.

The 39-year-old is slated to star in "Scary Movie 5" alongside other troubled actors Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Mike Tyson and Heather Locklear, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
