Tiffany Haddish Reflects On Child Abuse Lawsuit

Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish and her sisters were allegedly abused by their father, Keita Haddish, who died in 2017. She filed a lawsuit against him in 2018 for putting his hands on them and throwing them downstairs as children.

The suit has been dismissed again after failing to proceed through the court system within a year of its filing, according to Page Six.

“I think they should have tried harder,” said Haddish’s lawyer John Singleton Jr., who filed another lawsuit against Keita Haddish’s estate earlier this month on behalf of his daughter Quincy Haddish-Monegain (Tiffany’s sister). “They had plenty of time to get it done.”

“God got rid of it for me,” she said.

But this was short-lived; the money didn’t last long, with Haddish saying she spent it all on a party bus for her friends and family. She admits that she should have saved some for herself, but “it was so much fun.”

Tiffany Haddish Terms Lawsuit As Mess

She also revealed that her mother, who had been abusive to her as a child, was living on disability checks and had only $2 in a bank account at the time of their reunion.

She also explained why she’s not worried about the money. “I did this to serve Jesus Christ because I knew that if I didn’t look at it and say, ‘God is going to give me strength,’ then my story would be one of a failure when really it was one of triumph,” she said. “When people come up to me and tell me how much my story has inspired them and motivated them, that’s what makes me feel great.”

Tiffany Haddish then went on to explain how she’s been able to find peace with her past, saying that “whatever they did to me, they paid up.”

“I’ve been set up for life,” she added.

Tiffany Haddish is focused on her new life, which still includes family but doesn’t include any of her abusers. “I have a whole new family now,” she tells PSA. “I’m done with that old family.”
