Earlier this month, the lawsuit alleged that Haddish and Spears assaulted a brother and sister when they were 7 and 14, respectively. The complaint alleges that the comedian “dressed up” and “tampered” the plaintiffs, and that some incidents were recorded on video.

Haddish also told TMZ that she has not been in contact with Spears since the trial. The “MadTV” alum reportedly starred in the skit “Through the Pedophile’s Eyes,” where Spears was seen “lusting” a 7-year-old boy who was in her underwear.

“I don’t talk to him,” she said.

In another clip from TMZ, Haddish said the trial took a toll on her professional life.

“I lost everything,” she said. “All my gigs, gone. Everything, gone. I have no work. I have no work bro.”

Days after the suit was filed on September 1, Haddish wrote in an Instagram post, “I deeply regret that I have agreed to act” in a skit detailed in the suit.

On Tuesday, Jane Doe reportedly said in a statement to TMZ that she and her family “know it now”. [Haddish] Will never harm me or my brother or help anyone else to do anything that could harm us.”

With her out of the trial, Haddish isn’t worried about any further allegations, at least for now.

“I’m pretty sure no one else is going to follow me any time soon,” she said. “And if there’s anyone else, it’s a fake.”
