According to Radar Online, the woman who befriended Haddish and is the mother of the two children who accused the two comedians of sexual abuse, is now suing the Girls Trip actress. Trizah Morris has filed a defamation lawsuit one year after her children sued Haddish and Spears.
After news of her lawsuit against the two comedians became public, the attorney representing Haddish said, “Plaintiff’s mother, Trizah Morris, 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. Now, Ms. Morris has her adult daughter representing herself in this lawsuit. The two of them will together face the consequences of pursuing this frivolous action.”
The suit also stated that Morris did not file the lawsuit that her children filed, but that both comedians made false statements and allegations of extortion against Morris.
Morris says she has suffered personally, academically, professionally, and financially due to the comedian speaking ill of her. The lawsuit states that she has suffered anxiety and mental anguish over the damage done to her reputation.
