Last week, a woman filed a lawsuit against comedians Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears for alleged child sexual abuse with disturbing allegations about how they were allegedly coerced into performing sexually suggestive acts on camera while underage.
The woman - identified only as JaneDoe, who is now 22 - filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of her and her brother, identified only as JohnDoe, who is now 15-years of age. Jane is now the legal guardian of John.
A few days news broke about the lawsuit, Tiffany took to social media to speak out for the first time, sharing she “deeply regrets” participating in the “comedy” skits and said she wasn’t fully aware of what the skits were about.
"I know people have a bunch of questions. I get it. I'm right there with you. Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there's very little that I can say right now," the Night School actress wrote.
”But, clearly, while the sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn't funny at all — and I deeply regret having agreed to act in it," she added. "I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can."
The EMMY winning actress also took to her IG Stories to post Bible scriptures, which you can see above.
The lawsuit alleges, Tiffany and Aries “groomed” and sexually abused the siblings by tricking them into performing sexually suggestive acts on camera.
On Monday (September 5th), Jane Doe wrote a letter to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, calling for the comedians’ immediate arrest and prosecution.
In the letter to L.A. District Attorney GeorgeGascón, Jane Doe explained that her mother filed a police report against Tiffany and Aries in Las Vegas back in January 2020. She said the Vegas authorities passed the case to the LAPD, which “has done nothing with this complaint.”
In her letter, she said Detective Eastborn told Jane Doe’s mother that “there are children being molested present day” and that their complaint was “not a priority.”
“This matter’s breadth and complexity require your jurisdictional powers and resources to tackle and end the ... depravity committed by Haddish and Spears,” reads the letter, which was provided to The Los Angeles Times. “My brother and I are prepared to speak with investigators and prosecutors from your office and provide you with irrefutable evidence that substantiates our allegations.”
The lawsuit outlines two videos.
In the video filmed in 2013, the woman said Tiffany encouraged her to mimic the motions of giving fellatio on camera. At the time, she was just 14-years-old. The second video - filmed in 2014 - shows Aries pretending to be a pedophile who lusts after John Doe, who was 7-years-old at the time, while he played with a toy in his underwear as R. Kelly's"Bump & Grind" plays in the background. The skit was titled “Through A Pedophiles Eyes."
The pedophile clip ended up being posted on Funny or Die, as well as other online platforms.
Maintaining their innocence in the matter, Funny or Die toldThe Daily Beast they had NOTHING to do with the production of the video and that they immediately took it down once they were aware it existed.
“Funny Or Die found this video absolutely disgusting and would never produce such content,” a rep for Funny or Die said in a statement. “We were not involved with the conceptualization, development, funding, or production of this video. It was uploaded to the site as user-generated content and was removed in 2018 immediately after becoming aware of its existence.”
The disturbing video exists and is online currently, but we will NOT be sharing it, especially since the minor child’s face is shown in the video. We tried to watch the clip, but we had to turn it off because it was so cringey and problematic.
Following the publication of the article, Tiffany Haddish had her lawyer respond to the allegations.
Andrew Brettler, an attorney representing Tiffany Haddish, issued a statement to TMZ on her behalf saying that the plaintiff’s mother “has been trying to assert these bogus claims against Ms. Haddish for several years.”
”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. 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,” he continued.
Aries’ lawyer also told PEOPLE that he "isn't going to fall for any shakedown." He recently appeared on a podcast to double down on those claims:
