I lost all my jobs because of a child sexual abuse lawsuit

Tiffany Haddish says she is now unemployed thanks to the child molestation lawsuit that was filed – and dismissed – against her and Aries Spears.

The 42-year-old “Easter Sunday” star was questioned about the situation by paparazzi at LAX on Wednesday after it was revealed that Jane Doe, who alleged sexual misconduct against the comedians, was asking the judge to dismiss the case.

Though Haddish and Spears’ names are now legally distinct, their reputations could continue to suffer – something Haddish said she’s already experiencing.

“I lost everything. All my gigs gone. Everything gone,” she replied when asked if she thought the suit would damage her public image, according to a video released by TMZ.

The paparazzi tried to ask if Haddish felt like he could somehow change the world’s perception of herself through work projects, to which she doubled down, “I don’t have a job bro.”

The Post has reached out to Haddish officials for comment.

In the original lawsuit, Spears and Haddish had been charged by Jane and her also unnamed brother with willful infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence, sexual violence, sexual harassment and sexual abuse of a minor.

The lawsuit, filed in late August, also alleged that John Doe was “groomed and molested” by both defendants.

Haddish was also charged with negligent monitoring/failing to warn, breach of fiduciary duty and constructive fraud. The lawsuit sought general and special damages, as well as “any reasonable statutory damages.”

But Jane changed her tune when the suit was dropped. “My family and I have known Tiffany Haddish for many years – and we now know that she would never harm me or my brother or help anyone else to do anything that could harm us. We wish Tiffany all the best and are glad we can put this all behind us,” she said in a statement.

Lawyers for both comedians previously told The Post that the allegations were “false” and that their clients “wouldn’t fall for a shakedown.”

Haddish had also addressed the lawsuit in an Instagram statement, saying she couldn’t answer questions about it, but regretted starring in a video starring Spears and John called “Through the Eyes of a Pedophile.”
