Tiffany Haddish’s ex-husband denies abuse, says she wanted to be choked during sex

Tiffany Haddish’s ex-husband is fighting back against her claims of abuse during their marriage by saying she asked him to be “aggressive” with her during sex, including requesting him to choke her, according to The Blast.

Earlier this year, Tiffany was sued by her ex, William Stewart, over her memoir, “The Last Black Unicorn.” The book featured a chapter entitled, “The Ex-Husband,” which painted William as abusive and a stalker during their five-year marriage, though she never mentioned him by name.

The Blast reports: 

Stewart sued Haddish and Simon & Schuster, the book’s publisher, for defamation, libel, and slander and is seeking in excess of $1 million in damages. Haddish has denied his claims.
According to newly-released court documents obtained by The Blast, Stewart’s lawyers sent several letters to Haddish and S&S in an effort to reach a settlement prior to filing his lawsuit.
Stewart claims he reached out to Haddish personally, before making any public statements in an effort to resolve the “harmful and defamatory assertions.” He claims Haddish responded cryptically, saying, “Be patient your blessings are coming” and “Start to think positive so positive things can come your way. Because your blessings are waiting on you.”
Haddish claims she had a TRO against Stewart during their marriage, but he alleges the TRO was dropped after “Ms. Haddish recanted the allegations in the TRO and pled with law enforcement to dismiss the TRO because it was untrue. In fact, she confessed to attacking Mr. Stewart.”
Stewart’s attorneys went on to add that Haddish often joked in her standup that her husband was never abusive and used the choking part as a punchline. They went on to offer that their side has proof Haddish would ask to be choked during intercourse.
