Accuser demands immediate arrest of Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears by DA in child sex abuse case

Jane Doe sues Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears for child sex abuseamong other charges, is now calling on the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office to “immediately arrest and prosecute” the comedians.

On Monday, Jane Doe filed a for you lawsuit on behalf of herself and her 15-year-old brother, whom the complaint names with the pseudonym “John”. According to the lawsuit, Jane and John knew Haddish as an “aunt” from her longtime friendship with their mother. They were 14 and 7, respectively, when the complaint alleges Haddish and Spears recruited them for comedy videos in which each child was asked to perform sexually suggestive acts on camera.

In a letter to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, obtained by The Daily Beast, Jane points out – as The Daily Beast originally reported – that her mother filed a report with Las Vegas police in January 2020, in which she named both Haddish and Lances. (The Daily Beast has seen a copy of the report.) The letter alleges that since Las Vegas authorities transferred the case to the LAPD, the case officer “has done nothing with this complaint.”

“The magnitude and complexity of this case requires your jurisdictional powers and resources to address and end the depravity of the stream committed by Haddish and Spears,” concludes Jane’s letter to the district attorney’s office. “My brother and I stand ready to speak to investigators and prosecutors in your office and provide you with compelling evidence that supports our allegations.”

Andrew Brettler, a lawyer representing Haddish, issued a statement on her behalf denying what he calls ‘false allegations’ and alleging the siblings’ mother has ‘been trying to assert these false allegations against Ms Haddish for several years’. . Debra Opri, an attorney representing Spears, told the Washington Post that his client “is not going to fall into the trap”. Haddish herself released a statement on her social media on Monday saying that while she was legally required to discuss the case, “I deeply regret agreeing to participate in it.”

In the summer of 2013, when Jane was 14, the lawsuit alleges Haddish recruited her for a commercial. A year later, Haddish allegedly recruited John for a separate video that the lawsuit claims described to his mother as a sizzle reel for Nickelodeon. In both cases, Spears and Haddish allegedly asked the children to perform sexually suggestive acts on camera.

My brother and I stand ready to speak with investigators and prosecutors in your office and provide you with compelling evidence that supports our allegations.

When Jane entered the studio to record her commercial in 2013, the complaint claims that Spears asked her to mimic a video in which a group of college students ate a sandwich on the subway in a sexually suggestive manner, even until to noises. When Jane sat quietly, Haddish allegedly joined the pair and explained to the minor “how to perform oral sex, including the movements, noises, moans and groans,” the complaint states.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, Jane said she tried to ignore what happened at the time. But the lawsuit alleges that Jane, like her brother John, remains traumatized by the actions of Haddish and Spears. “Plaintiff Jane Doe is now 22 and has never dated,” the lawsuit states. “She is afraid of being exploited again and led down a path of false confidence like the path Haddish led her down.”

John’s video was reportedly shot a year later at Aries Spears’ home; while Jane allegedly attended the filming as a chaperone, the lawsuit claims Haddish separated the two upon their arrival. Spears allegedly told John’s mother that her images had been deleted, but in 2018 the lawsuit alleges the family learned that a sketch had been made and, in fact, was still online. In the video, titled “The Mind of a Pedophile” and posted on Funny or Die and elsewhere, Haddish plays the 7-year-old’s mother and leaves him with a pedophile babysitter played by Spears. The children’s mother was horrified; Funny or Die called it “absolutely disgusting” and said it was uploaded as user-generated content, and they removed it as soon as they learned of its existence.

The Daily Beast has seen a recording of the video, in which John spends most of his time wearing nothing but his underwear as Spears ogles him and at one point applies baby oil to the body of the girl. ‘child. At the end of the video, John is seen rubbing baby oil on his shirtless babysitter’s shoulder. The lawsuit claims that John always places bandages on the cameras of his electronic devices for fear of being recorded and cites a testimonial he wrote in therapy which states that his experience while filming “fucked me up. “. Jane’s letter alleges that the original video, complete with sound, includes R Kelly’s song “Bump n’ Grind” playing in the background.

Jane’s lawsuit accuses the two comedians of intentionally inflicting emotional distress, gross neglect, sexual assault, sexual harassment and sexual abuse of a minor, and Haddish is further charged with negligent supervision/default. warning, breach of fiduciary duty and constructive fraud. She seeks general and special damages, as well as “any appropriate statutory damages.”

In John’s therapy statement cited in the lawsuit, the 15-year-old writes: ‘I have no friends, I don’t trust anyone, I’m afraid of adults, I refuse to be recorded. or take pictures because I’m afraid weird adults will try to do mean things to me again. I spend all my time in my room and I don’t go anywhere because I don’t trust anyone.
