Tiffany Haddish sued by ex-husband over abuse allegations in memoir

Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish is being sued by her ex-husband for the alleged abuse mentioned in her memoirs, “The Last Black Unicorn.”


Tiffany Haddish’s ex claims that her memoirs, “The Last Black Unicorn” is full of lies about him.

William Stewart sued Haddish and Simon & Schuster, the book’s publisher, about her chapter claimed that he was abused and haunted her during their marriage, according to court documents, obtained via The Blast. Haddish never mentioned Stewart’s name, but the first couple married and divorced twice.

Stewart claimed in his suit that he sent Haddish, 38, and Simon & Schuster multiple letters to solve the “malicious and defamatory” claims in the chapter “The Ex-Husband,” before filing the suit. He claims that Haddish replied: “be patient, your blessings come,” and “think positive so positive things come your way. Because your blessings are waiting for you.”

He also claimed in his suit that the restraining order she received during their marriage was dropped after she “recanted the accusations” and “pleaded with the law enforcement to the dismissal of the TRO because it was not true. In fact, she confessed to the attacks of Mr. Stewart.”

He also said that she told Dom Irrera in a 2012 interview that Stewart never beat her, but he “just choked [her] a bit.” Stewart claimed that he can prove that they “regularly requested Mr. Stewart to be more aggressive with her during sex, including, among other things, to choke her as a part of their sexual intercourse.”

Stewart is seeking more than $1 million for slander, libel, and slander.
