I lost all my jobs because of child sexual abuse lawsuit

Tiffany Haddish says she is now jobless, thanks to the child molestation lawsuit filed — and dismissed — against her and Aries Spears.

The 42-year-old “Easter Sunday” star was questioned by paparazzi at LAX on Wednesday about the situation after news broke that the Jane Doe who alleged sexual misconduct against the comedians asked the judge to dismiss the case.

Although Haddish and Spears’ names are now legally in the clear, their reputations may continue to suffer — something Haddish said she’s already experiencing.

“I lost everything. All my gigs, gone. Everything, gone,” she answered when asked if she felt the suit would damage her public image, according to video published by TMZ.

The paparazzo tried to ask if Haddish felt she could somehow change the world’s perception of herself through work projects, to which she doubled down, “I don’t have no job, bro.”

The Post has contacted reps for Haddish for comment.

In the original suit, Spears and Haddish had been accused by Jane and her brother, also unnamed, of intentional infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence, sexual battery, sexual harassment and sexual abuse of a minor.

The lawsuit, filed in late August, also claimed that John Doe was “groomed and molested” by both defendants.

Haddish was also accused of negligent supervision/failure to warn, breach of fiduciary duty and constructive fraud. The lawsuit sought general and special damages, as well as “any appropriate statutory damages.”

But Jane changed her tune once the suit was dropped. “My family and I have known Tiffany Haddish for many years – and we now know that she would never harm me or my brother or help anyone else do anything that could harm us. We wish Tiffany the best and are glad that we can all put this behind us,” she said in a statement.

Lawyers for both comedians previously told The Post that the allegations were “bogus” and that their clients wouldn’t “fall for any shakedown.”

Haddish had also addressed the lawsuit in an Instagram statement, saying she was unable to answer any questions on it, but regretted acting in a video with Spears and John titled “Through a Pedophile’s Eyes.”
