While the lawsuit was recently withdrawn, the allegations appeared to have done significant damage to her career in a short time, with the Nobody's Fool actress confessing she's lost out on job opportunities.
"Oh, I lost everything," Haddish candidly claimed after being stopped by paparazzi at the airport. "All my gigs, gone. Everything's gone. I don't have no job, bro."
As OK! previously reported, the Like a Boss star and the comedian were both accused of grooming and molestation years after appearing in a controversial skit published on Funny Or Die. The lawsuit, filed by a "Jane Doe" in August, alleged that Haddish and Spears "traumatized" a then 14-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother throughout production.
"Plaintiff's mother, Trizah Morris, has been trying to assert these bogus claims against Ms. Haddish for several years," Haddish's lawyer said in a statement at the time of the lawsuit.
"Every attorney who has initially taken on her case — and there were several — ultimately dropped the matter once it became clear that the claims were meritless and Ms. Haddish would not be shaken down," the statement continued. "Now, Ms. Morris has her adult daughter representing herself in this lawsuit. The two of them will together face the consequences of pursuing this frivolous action."

The lawsuit was later dropped on Tuesday, September 20. Soon after, the mother of the two children spoke out regarding the rollercoaster legal drama.
"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," she admitted. "We wish Tiffany the best and are glad that we can all put this behind us."
TMZ was first to report that Haddish's comments and the children's mother's responses after dropping the lawsuit.
