**TMZ is also reporting that Katt Williams just won back custody of his 8-year-old adopted daughter — after the girl’s nanny allegedly lied to a judge to take her away from him … this according to new legal docs.

Williams filed new legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court — claiming McGhee as a fraud … a former nanny “with no parental rights,” who hasn’t worked with the family for years. The judge has since overturned the previous order.

Perhaps her motivation was collecting California parental perks otherwise known as government benefits
