Tiffany Haddish claims she’s ‘lost everything’ after child abuse lawsuit

Tiffany Haddish claims her career is in tatters after a lawsuit accused of forcing minors to perform sexually suggestive acts on camera was dismissed.

The “Girls Trip” star was named in a Jane Doe lawsuit alongside comedian Aries Spears last month. The suit alleged that the couple made a woman and her brother make sexually explicit comedy sketches when they were minors.

This week, the siblings reportedly dropped the lawsuit, which is now considered resolved and cannot be resubmitted. But Haddish says the consequences cost her dearly.

‘Oh, I’ve lost everything. All my gigs are gone,” she said in an interview with TMZ on Wednesday as she walked through Los Angeles International Airport. “Everything, gone. I don’t know, brother. I ain’t got a job. I ain’t got a job, buddy.”

It is unclear which performances Haddish is referring to. She is slated to appear in three upcoming films currently in post-production: the comedy “Back on the Strip” alongside Kevin Hart; Disney’s New “Haunted Mansion” Movie; and the science fiction film ‘Landscape with the invisible hand’. The comedian is also expected to return for the second season of the Apple TV+ series “The Afterparty.”

“I’m relieved,” Haddish told TMZ in a separate video after the case was dropped. “I was really concerned about the kids and made sure they were okay.”

Earlier this month, an unidentified prosecutor alleged that Haddish, who she described as an “old family friend” of her mother’s, “cared for” her and her brother when they were 14 and 7 years old respectively, leaving them both “traumatized for life.” goods”. ”, by People.

Some of these incidents were taped for comedy skits, including a “sexually suggestive Subway commercial” in which Haddish told Jane Doe how to perform sexual acts on a sandwich, making her “physically, emotionally and mentally uncomfortable”.

The accuser’s brother also claimed that he was harassed by Spears while filming a separate skit titled “Through a Pedophile’s Eyes” with Haddish under the false pretense that he was making a movie for Nickelodeon. In the video, Spears “teaches” to the child, sees him bathe and rub oil on his back, according to The Daily Beast.

“I don’t talk to him,” Haddish told TMZ about her current relationship with Spears.

Days after the filing made headlines, the siblings abruptly dismissed the lawsuit this week.

“My family and I have known Tiffany Haddish for many years — and we now know that she would never harm me or my brother or help anyone else do anything that could harm us,” the woman told TMZ on Tuesday on behalf of herself and her brother. “We wish Tiffany the best and are happy to put this all behind us.”

Spears previously called the allegations a form of “extortion” and Haddish’s lawyer described them as “fake” and insisted the star “wouldn’t be knocked down.”

However, Haddish expressed regret over participating in the sketches in a post shared on Instagram.

“I know people have a lot of questions,” she wrote. “I get it. I’m with you. Unfortunately, as there’s an ongoing legal case, I can’t say much about it at the moment. But obviously, while this sketch was meant to be comedic, it wasn’t funny at all. was – and I deeply regret that I agreed to play in it. I’m really looking forward to sharing a lot more about this situation as soon as possible.”
