A disturbing new lawsuit alleges comedians Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears coerced a 7-year-old boy and his 14-year-old sister to appear in videotaped, sexually explicit comedy skits that left them with “severe emotional damage.”

Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears are accused of child abuse in a lawsuit

Lawyers for the comedians released response statements Thursday, branding the complaint – filed Monday in Los Angeles – a brazen money grab.

Plaintiff’s mother, (name redacted), has been trying to assert these bogus claims against Ms. Haddish for several years.

Every attorney who has initially taken on her case — and there were several — ultimately dropped the matter once it became clear that the claims were meritless, and Ms. Haddish would not be shaken down,” Haddish’s lawyer Andrew Brettler said in a statement sent to Rolling Stone.

According to the 31-page filing, Jane Doe was attending a comedy camp at the Laugh Factory in 2013 when she was recruited by Haddish to appear in a skit that appeared to be a parody of a Subway sandwich commercial
