#Roommates, earlier this week we broke the story that Tiffany Haddish’s ex-husband was not too happy about her domestic abuse claims in her new memoir, “The Last Black Unicorn.” William Stewart took to his Instagram page to let the world know he “never once hit, beat or abused her,” even though she details physical altercations — including one that allegedly led to a miscarriage — in her book.
Well, Tiffany’s ex has officially lawyer’d up to clear his name of any and all abuse allegations, and he secured Russell Simmons’ legal team. TSR spoke to his attorney Michael T. Sterling (who also happens to be Eva Marcille’s boyfriend) and he told us that Stewart isn’t looking to sue anyone in particular at this time. His motive is to get to the bottom of who is responsible for, what he refers to as, “these defamatory lies.” As we previously reported, Tiffany admitted that some details in the book weren’t 100 percent true and she blamed it on the editing process.
“We are going where the facts lead us,” Sterling told us. “I want to protect his reputation so he can get back to his regular life and keep his job.”
As far as a restraining order that Tiffany filed against her then-husband back in July 2011, Sterling says that doesn’t prove he was abusive. “If they did a little more work, they would see that two months later he was issued a certificate of exoneration clearing him of those allegations.”
In a recent interview V-103 interview, William share his side of the story and said he had nothing to do with Tiffany’s reported miscarriage. “I have never beat or hit or called a woman a ‘MF’ or ‘B’ while having a disagreement ever in my life,” he said. “I never caused a miscarriage, I have documents to prove this. Tiffany advised me about a month ago about the book and she told me that I would be furious.”
We really hope they can get this all cleared up!
