Katt Williams suggests comedian Chris Tucker traveled to ‘Epstein Island’

He’s letting the Katt out of the bag.

Katt Williams suggested that Chris Tucker had traveled to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Esptein’s island, where the late financier was running a sex trafficking ring with partner Ghislaine Maxwell.

In a new viral interview on Shannon Sharpe’s “Club Shay Shay,” the “Friday After Next” star, 52, spoke about why it would be hard to make another “Friday” movie due to the many “great people” that have died from the original films.

However, Williams said Tucker — who is still alive — is no longer the same person he was when he originally portrayed Smokey in the 1995 cult classic.

“We lost some great people before this movie could come out regardless,” he said. “But we missed John Witherspoon in a way that really can’t be quantified if I’m being honest with you.”

“And the Chris Tucker that we got now is ‘Epstein Island’ Chris Tucker, not Smokey,” Williams continued.

“To be confident and not delusional is a real skill.”

Page Six has reached out to reps for Tucker but did not immediately hear back.

Dozens of high-profile names appeared in the previously sealed court documents related to Epstein, which featured the names of over 170 associates of the convicted sex trafficker.

Tucker previously admitted that he traveled with Epstein.

In 2002, the comedian, Epstein, former President Bill Clinton and disgraced actor Kevin Spacey spent a week touring AIDS project sites in South Africa on Epstein’s plane for the Clinton Foundation. The trip was mentioned in newly unsealed court documents obtained by Page Six.

However, the “Rush Hour” actor, 52, revealed in a 2021 interview with All Urban Central that he didn’t know he was on the sex offender’s private plane.

“That was a humanitarian trip to Africa, and I met [Epstein] on that trip ’cause it was his plane — I didn’t know who plane we was getting on but it was a whole bunch of dignitary people who was with us.

“I met him and you don’t know people and what they do in their private lives.”

Tucker then vehemently denied that he was ever on Epstein’s island.

Page Six has not seen any evidence that Tucker associated with Epstein beyond that single humanitarian trip to Africa.
