Newly Recovered Police Filings Support Tiffany Haddish’s Allegations of Ex-Husband’s Abuse
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.’”
#PressPlay: #TiffanyHaddish's memoir #TheLastBlackUnicorn was released last week but there seems to be some discrepancies over what’s true and what was fabricated in the book. Tiffany recently went live and admitted some things may have gotten tweaked during the editing process. This came after multiple sources reported some of the shocking details shared in the book, including an alleged abusive relationship with her ex-husband who she divorced and married twice. __________________________________________ "He grabbed me by the collar, he was like, 'It's time to go to the room now,' in front of everybody," she wrote. "Just snatched me by my shirt, and pulled me to the elevator and threw me in it…once we got to our hotel room, he was so quick. He snatched me by the neck and slammed me into the wall." __________________________________________ She said things got so bad between them that at one point it led to an arrest and miscarriage. Now, Tiffany’s ex-husband is speaking out against the allegations, saying he loves Tiff until his last breath and he never put his hands on her. #Roomies, take a look and tell us your thoughts.
Haddish has yet to respond to her ex-husband’s latest comments.
