Common Pulled Into Tiffany Haddish’s Defamation Lawsuit

Common hasn’t dated Tiffany Haddish in over two years. But he’s still finding his name tied to one of her legal battles.

Common hasn’t dated Tiffany Haddish in over two years. But he’s still finding his name tied to one of her legal battles.

The Oscar- and Grammy-winning rapper is being implicated in Haddish’s court conflict with ex-friend Trizah Morris. Common, real name Lonnie Rashid Lynn, will be included in Morris’ witness list alongside two of Haddish’s attorneys in the ongoing arbitration battle.

Morris is suing the comedian for defamation following allegations of extortion. She is under the assumption that Common was with Haddish when certain events relevant to the case occurred.

“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 do anything that could harm us,” the Jane Doe said in a statement. “We wish Tiffany the best and are glad that we can all put this behind us.”

However, an attorney for Haddish accused Morris of using the lawsuit as an extortion attempt. Morris filed her defamation lawsuit to deny the extortion claims in a case Haddish has requested to keep out of state court and in arbitration.

Morris signed an arbitration agreement but said it was signed under duress as a result of bullying from Haddish and her team. Morris is demanding the court toss the deal.

“My name and reputation are important to me as I pride myself on being an upstanding member of society,” Marris states in her filing.
