Aries Spears, the Tiffany Haddish Skit creator, speaks out against grooming and molestation lawsuits ...

Tiffany Haddish and comedian Aries Spears have been talked about a lot this week, after a lawsuit was dismissed against the pair of grooming and molestation. The allegations stemmed from a sketch comedy skit that was later published on Funny or Die. (Though Funny or Die clarified they were not involved in the production of the skit, calling it "absolutely disgusting.") Spears has now spoken out about the legal issues.

Aries Spears is a member of the "Spears & Steinberg" podcast, which consists of a duo who host an episode on social media in which he and his podcast partner, Andy Steinberg, discussed their respective weeks. Andy wasn't doing too well, but Spears clearly felt he needed to address the real issue.

Evidently, for legal reasons, I can't say anything at this time. However, I just want to express to all loyal listeners my gratitude and appreciation for your help. Listen: This is not an extortion case.

Tiffany Haddish, the other celebrity named in the lawsuit, expressed her gratitude that this video and lawsuit had finally reached an agreement. She claims she was sick of being extorted out of the comedy sketch.

Tiffany Haddish's Response To The Grooming Lawsuit

Tiffany Haddish has spoken out about the other lawsuit that came down the pipeline, and she has towed a similar line to what Aries Spears said in his remarks. However, Haddish expressed deep regret for what happened during the sketch and what followed.

I understand people have a lot of questions. I agree. Im right there with you. Sadly, because there is a legal battle at hand, there is very little I can say right now. However, while this sketch was intended to be funny, it wasn't exactly funny, and I regret having agreed to participate in it. I am looking forward to sharing a lot more about this situation as soon as I can.

The plaintiff claimed that two individuals known as Jane Doe (22) and John Doe (reportedly 15) were "groomed" into "filming sexually explicit child pornography skits." Tiffany Haddish's attorney Andrew Brettler has named the mother in the lawsuit, Trizah Morris, and has stated that she has "been attempting these fraudulent claims for years." He also mentioned that other lawyers had previously dropped the case before it became the subject of a lawsuit in the last few days.

Haddish has been having a tense year after separating from her partner Common at the end of 2021 and becoming candid about a subsequent DUI. She has plenty of projects ahead of her, including a film called The Haunted Mansion. However, this lawsuit comes at a critical time for the actress.

More information on this case will likely be released in the weeks to come, although lawsuits such as this one often settle without making it to the courtroom (the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp courtroom and unsealed documents brouhaha was an outlier.) Keep your readers updated either way.
