Back in May it was reported, William Stewart is reportedly suing for libel, slander and defamation and asking for more than $1 million in damages. In addition to Haddish, Stewart has named “Unicorn” co-author Tucker Max and publisher Simon Schuster as co-defendants.
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.
