Though Tiffany Haddish’s ex-husband claims he did not physically abuse her, newly recovered police filings support the actress’ claims.
Comedian Tiffany Haddish released her memoir, The Last Black Unicorn, earlier this month revealed details of abuse in her past marriage.
In a restraining order obtained by Radar Online the Girls Trip star says her then-husband William Stewart attacked her on multiple occasions. “We were in Montreal, Canada, when he choked me in the stairway of the hotel,” she wrote. “I ran away from him. I ran because he was trying to make me stay in the room. But I wanted to stay in the lobby and talk to my fellow comedians.”
Haddish also described another violent dispute in June 2011 where she says Stewart body slammed, choked her, and threw her up against a wall, leaving her with a “black eye, bruised neck, elbow, and back.” Cops were called during the incident. Haddish also claims the ongoing abuse led to a miscarriage.
Stewart refuted her claims of abuse in an interview with V-103 saying, “I have never beat or hit or called a woman a ‘MF or B’ while having a disagreement ever in my life. I never caused a miscarriage, I have documents to prove this. Tiffany advised me about a month ago about the book and she told me that I would be furious.”
Haddish went on Instagram Live on Friday discussing possible embellishments in the book’s detailing of the domestic violence incidents saying, “I don’t know if when they edit, maybe they tweak things a little. So, then, in the audiobook, I’m like, ‘No, this is what it is.’”
Haddish has yet to respond to her ex-husband’s latest comments.
