Tiffany Haddish’s Ex-Husband Files Defamation Lawsuit Over Domestic Abuse Claims

Published: Saturday 26th May 2018 by Rashad

Tiffany Haddish is learning the hard way about the hoopla that can arise due to the divulgence of secrets.

After causing a commotion with her reports of an unnamed actress biting the face of music superstar Beyonce, now – less than a month ahead of her historic gig as the first Black female hostess of the MTV Movie & TV Awards (click here to read more) – the rising star was greeted with news her ex-husband has filed a defamation lawsuit against her for claims he was abusive.

Details inside:

$1 million in damages.

That’s how much Haddish’s former spouse, William Stewart, is requesting after he discovered allegations of his ‘abusive behavior’ in her memoir, ‘The Last Black Unicorn.’ In the chapter titled ‘The Ex-Husband,’ the ‘Girls Trip’ star alleges he choked, stalked, and kidnapped her over the course of their marriage – abuse, she details, that eventually led to the loss of their unborn child.

Stewart not only denies the abuse claims, but asserts the child was lost due to a voluntarily abortion by Haddish.  To clear his name, he’s suing the actress, her autobiography’s co-author, and the publisher.

In a statement Stewart’s attorney said:

“For the defendants’ own profit, they painted my clients as abusers in a best-selling book. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence, we know that the assertions made by the defendants about my clients in “The Last Black Unicorn” are patently untrue.”

“Powerful people and influential corporations can’t intentionally and recklessly destroy someone’s reputation with malicious lies for their own profit. After exhausting our ability to solve this matter privately, we have been left with no choice, but to seek legal recourse. We look forward to our day in court.”

    While there are always 2 sides to every story and after that the truth I wish more men would do this. Many women are defaming and making false accusations of abuse for their own financial gain or attempts at 15 minutes of fame. With thousands of people and companies supporting these women accusers who have no proof or police investigation in their favor I wonder if we as a society are moving forward or backward intellectually. Perhaps people could at least start watching Law and Order SVU and see how common it is that people lie for various reasons when it comes to abuse. Police investigations (or at the very least hearing both sides of the story) are crucial before believing any accuser.

    He beat her now he thirst madd to get some of her come up money.. she has a police statement defending her statements and most people who get abused don’t report every incident. So as long as she has one report she good.

    If she lied she needs to pay up. I do recall an interview of some sort where someone asked her about the allegations against her ex when he first complained sometime ago and she said some of the things in the book where embellished.
