A famous American comedian accused of embezzling a minor and child molestation

Famed American comedian Tiffany Haddish and comedian Aries Spears are accused of embezzling a minor and child molestation.

According to court documents obtained by The Daily Beast, the two comedians are accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother, who are now 22 and 14, and are filing complaints. They were identified in the legal documents under the anonymous pseudonyms Jane Doe and John Doe. Jane is the complainant as an individual and on behalf of her younger brother.

The lawsuit alleges that Tiffany Haddish, “a longtime family friend,” approached Jane in 2013 for a “perfect role” in a commercial. According to the filing, neither Jane nor her mother knew of the plot of the ad, but Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears did. During the commercial shoot, Tiffany Haddish reportedly taught Jane how to mimic oral sex while eating a sandwich.

A year later, Tiffany Haddish would have contacted the siblings’ mother to recruit John for an episode of Nickelodeon. The complaint alleges that then seven-year-old John was abused by Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears for a sketch published on Funny or Die entitled Through a Pedophile’s Eyes.

Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears are being sued for “willful infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence, sexual assault, sexual harassment and sexual abuse of a minor.” Prosecutors are seeking financial compensation for “past, present and future general damages.”

Lawyers for Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears called the lawsuit a “thug.” “Plaintiffs’ mother, Trizah Morris, has attempted to pursue these false allegations against Ms Haddish for several years,” the actress’ lawyer, Andrew Brettler, said in a statement. “Every attorney who initially took her case – and there were several – eventually dropped the case when it became clear that the claims were unfounded and Ms Haddish was undeterred.”

Representatives from Funny or Die called the video uploaded to their platform “absolutely disgusting” and insisted they would never produce such content. She was deposed in 2018 as soon as one “was aware of her existence”.
