Tongues are wagging that Tiffany Haddish’s ex-husband, William Stewart, claims his comedienne/actress ex-wife’s best-selling autobiography is filled with lies. So he’s suing the “Girls Trip” star for libel, slander and defamation. Stewart says Haddish’s tome, “The Last Black Unicorn,” labels him a “monster” in the chapter titled, “The Ex-Husband.” Although Haddish never mentions Stewart by name, he claims he’s the only person she’s been married to, making him easily identifiable. According to the lawsuit, Haddish details her ex-husband “choking, kidnapping and stalking her” during their five-year marriage. Stewart is seeking more than $1 million in damages and has also named the book’s co-author and publisher, Simon and Schuster, as defendants in his lawsuit.
