Tiffany Haddish claims she “lost everything” after the child sexual abuse lawsuit

Tiffany Haddish says her career is shattered after a lawsuit accusing her of forcing minors into sexually suggestive acts in front of the camera was dismissed.

The “Girls Trip” star was named in a Jane Doe lawsuit alongside comedian Aries Spears last month. The lawsuit alleged that the couple made a woman and her brother’s sex-themed comic film sketches when they were minors.

This week, the brothers reportedly withdrew the lawsuit, which is now considered settled and cannot be filed again. But Haddish says her relapse cost her a lot.

“Oh, I lost everything. All my concerts are gone,” he said in an interview with TMZ as he walked through Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday. “All gone. I don’t know, brother. I have no job. I have no job, brother. “

It is unclear what Haddish concerts are referring to. She is slated to appear in three upcoming films currently in post-production: the comedy “Back on the Strip,” opposite Kevin Hart; the new Disney movie “Haunted Mansion”; and the science fiction film “Landscape with 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 closed. “I was really worried about the kids and making sure they were okay.”

Earlier this month, an unidentified plaintiff alleged that Haddish, whom she described as a “longtime family friend” of her mother, “treated” her and her brother when they were 14 and 7, respectively, leaving them. both “traumatized for life.,” for People.

Some of these incidents were recorded for comic sketches, including a “sexually suggestive Subway commercial” in which Haddish told Jane Doe how to perform sexual acts on a sandwich, which she felt made her feel “physically, emotionally and mentally.” uncomfortable”.

The actor’s brother also claimed he was harassed by Spears while filming a separate sketch called “Through a Pedophile’s Eyes” with Haddish under the false pretense of doing a reel for Nickelodeon. In the video, Spears reportedly “empties” the baby, watches him take a bath and rubs the oil on his back, according to The Daily Beast.

“I’m not talking to him,” Haddish told TMZ about his current relationship with Spears.

Days after the filing made headlines, the brothers abruptly rejected the lawsuit this week.

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

Spears previously denounced the allegations as a form of “extortion” and Haddish’s lawyer described them as “false”, insisting that the star “would not be shaken”.

Haddish, however, expressed regret for participating in the sketches in a message shared on Instagram.

“I know people have a lot of questions,” he wrote. “I get it. I’m right there with you. Unfortunately, since there’s a lawsuit pending, there’s very little I can say right now. But clearly, while this sketch was supposed to be comical, it wasn’t funny at all – and I’m deeply sorry I agreed to star in it. I’m looking forward to sharing a lot more about this situation as soon as possible. “
