Tiffany Haddish responds to child sexual abuse lawsuit
Tiffany Haddish took to her Instagram account on Monday to address the subject of being accused of child sexual abuse.
She started with, ‘I know people have a lot of questions. I get it. I’m there with you.
The 42-year-old celebrity added: “Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case.” There is very little I can say right now.
Additionally, the statement read, “But clearly, while this sketch was intended to be comical, it wasn’t funny at all.” And I deeply regret that I agreed to act in it.
He ended by saying, “I really look forward to sharing a lot more about this situation as soon as I can.”
Tiffany Haddish was sued for child sexual abuse
According to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears were accused of “sexually grooming and abusing” two minor brothers.
Reports claim that celebrities made the siblings, identified as Jane Doe (now 22) and John Doe (now 14), participate in allegedly sexually suggestive videos.
In the lawsuit, Jane mentioned that Haddish taught her how to imitate fellatio for a play in 2013 when she was 14 years old.
Jane wrote: “I tried to imitate what they wanted me to imitate, but it was still very awkward.”
Also, a year later, in 2014, the Girls Trip actress recruited Jane’s 7-year-old brother in a video titled “Through the Eyes of a Pedophile.”
The video was alleged to show Spears lusting after a 7-year-old boy and abusing him.
However, Haddish’s attorney, Andrew Brettler, denied the claims. In addition, he alleged that the plaintiff’s mother, Trizah Morris, “has been trying to assert these false claims against Ms. Haddish for several years.”
Brettler added: “All of the attorneys who initially took up her case, and there were several, eventually dropped the matter once it became clear that the claims had no merit and that Ms Haddish would not be extorted.”
He further said: ‘Now, Ms. Morris has her adult daughter representing herself in this lawsuit. The two will face the consequences of carrying out this frivolous action together.
Meanwhile, Spears’ attorney, Debra Opri, mentioned, “He’s not going to fall for any extortion.”
