A surprising story comes to a surprisingly quick end: the anonymous siblings who accuse comedians Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears of “deliberate infliction of emotional distress, gross neglect, sexual battery, sexual harassment, and sexual assault of a minor.” In a lawsuit earlier this month During a comic sketch with Spears and Haddish that the brothers filmed when they were children, they dropped their complaint and filed for dismissal with prejudice – which means the matter is completely resolved and cannot be reconsidered.

Furthermore, one of the siblings (known only as Jane Doe) released the following statement (Across Limit): “My family and I have known Tiffany Haddish for many years – and now we know she wouldn’t hurt me, my brother, or help anyone else do anything that could hurt us. We wish the best for Tiffany and are so glad we can all put this behind us.”

While this statement does not mention Spears, his status as a defendant in this lawsuit means that any lawsuits against him have also been dropped. Spears posted about the fall of the lawsuit on InstagramBut Hadash hasn’t made any kind of public statement since then She distanced herself from the aforementioned drawing shortly after the accusations surfaced. Filmed in 2014, the sketch was called “Through the Eyes of a Child Lover” and featured Spears playing a child-gay character opposite Jane Doe’s brother – who was 7 at the time and reportedly called his mother crying after filming ended. (We reviewed specific descriptions of what was in the chart in a previous report, if you really want to know.)

Since Spears’ post is the only statement we have to get out of it, it’s unclear if there was any kind of settlement or what might have caused this turn of events. Limit He says there were “whispers about some kind of agreement” last week, but that’s it.
