Tiffany Haddish’s Child Abuse Saga Continues with Former Friend’s $1 Million Lawsuit
If Tiffany Haddish thought the controversy over an old comedy skit involving children was behind her, she can think again.
The Girls Trip star was performing at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood on August 28, when she was served with legal papers by a process server, Radar Online reports. Haddish’s former friend Trizah Morris filed the lawsuit, which accuses the comedian of grooming her children by having them participate in a sexually inappropriate skit filmed in 2014.
Morris, who was friends with Haddish from 2011 to 2020, claims the comedian and former Mad TV star Aries Spears made slanderous remarks about her. While her now adult children dismissed their suit against the comedians last year, their mother has moved forward with her own $1 million lawsuit.
Haddish received the legal documents just weeks after Morris filed the suit, advancing the process. Morris claims to have been close friends with Haddish with her children. who called the comedian “Aunt Tiff,” when Haddish had the children perform in Spears’ controversial skit dubbed “Through A Pedophile’s Eyes.”
Morris says her children were groomed and made to perform inappropriate sexual acts including one where her minor daughter simulated oral sex. Morris’s children dropped their lawsuit last year claiming there was no wrongdoing and the suit was an extortion attempt.
“Every attorney who has initially taken on her case—and there were several—ultimately dropped the matter once it became clear that the claims were meritless and Ms. Haddish would not be shaken down,” her lawyer said.
“Now, Ms. Morris has her adult daughter representing herself in this lawsuit. The two of them will together face the consequences of pursuing this frivolous action.”
