Tiffany Haddish has admitted that she is seeking help after her latest DUI arrest last week.
On Friday (November 24), the comedian and actor was arrested for her second DUI in two years after she was found asleep in her car which had stopped in the middle of the road in Beverly Hills.
Speaking to ET, Haddish acknowledged that she needs to get better, saying: “This will never happen again. I’m going to get some help so I can learn balance and boundaries.”
Haddish was arrested after it was reported that a woman was unresponsive at the wheel of a vehicle.
Footage of the arrest was also obtained by TMZ, with the clip showing the 43-year-old being led away in handcuffs by police officers.
The day before her arrest, Haddish had performed at a free Thanksgiving event in Los Angeles and helped to feed the hungry.
Tiffany Haddish was previously arrested for a DUI in January 2022 after she was also found asleep at the wheel.
She later joked about the situation during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon: “I’ve been praying to God to send me a new man, a good man. God went ahead and sent me four in a uniform. I wasn’t expecting it. I was not expecting that at all. Now, I’ve got a really great lawyer, and we’re going to work it out. I’ve got to get my asking of things to God a little better.”
Haddish was previously accused of and sued for grooming and sexually abusing two minors in a series of comedic skits that allegedly featured children in sexually suggestive situations.
The Girls Trip star later clarified her participation in the skits, saying they were intended to be comedic but were “not funny at all.”
The lawsuit was later dismissed by the claimant who said in a statement: “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.”
