Tiffany Haddish at the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards
Comedian Tiffany Haddish has broken her silence on the lawsuit accusing her and fellow comedian Aries Spears of child sexual abuse.
In an Instagram post on Monday, Haddish acknowledged that people have “a lot of questions” but said she has “very little” to say because of the ongoing lawsuit.
“But frankly, while this drawing was meant to be funny, it wasn’t funny at all — and I’m so sorry I agreed to act in it,” Haddish wrote.
“I’m really looking forward to being able to share more about this situation as soon as possible,” he added. Comments on Haddish’s post have been disabled.
The lawsuit, filed last Tuesday, accuses Haddish and Spears of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother on two separate occasions.
The lawsuit seen by Insider was filed without legal counsel by 22-year-old Jane Doe, who alleges that Haddash and Spears sexually assaulted her younger brother, now 15, during a video clip filmed in 2014. of the year, was sexually assaulted.

The lawsuit alleges that the boy ended up in a video titled “Through the Eyes of a Pedophile,” which showed Spears “abusing and molesting the 7-year-old through video.” The lawsuit also states that Haddish was present during the shooting of the drawing.
In a separate Jane Doe incident, Haddish was accused of approaching a girl during a 2013 comedy summer camp and encouraging her to imitate sexually suggestive actions on camera. The girl complied “to be able to go home,” according to the lawsuit.
Haddish’s lawyer told Insider that the plaintiff’s mother “had been trying to verify these false allegations against Ms. Haddish for years.” Spears’ attorney told PEOPLE that his client “will not be caught in an extortion racket.”
A representative for Haddish did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
