Here are a few more details from the lawsuit, per TMZ:

Stewart says he and Tiffany were married in 2008 and divorced in 2013 … not married twice and divorced twice like Tiffany claims in the bio. He also claims allegations she made in a 2011 restraining order filed against him were false and dismissed in court.

William’s also pissed Haddish went after his own mother, Elnora Daughtery, in the book … claiming she abused Stewart as a child and was aware he was abusing Tiffany, but did nothing to stop it.

Stewart’s attorney, Michael Sterling tells TMZ, “For the defendants’ own profit, they painted my clients as abusers in a best-selling book. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence, we know that the assertions made by the defendants about my clients in “The Last Black Unicorn” are patently untrue.”

He continues, “Powerful people and influential corporations can’t intentionally and recklessly destroy someone’s reputation with malicious lies for their own profit. After exhausting our ability to solve this matter privately, we have been left with no choice, but to seek legal recourse. We look forward to our day in court.”

The book does not mention Stewart by name, but he claims that it makes him easily identifiable because he was the only person she was married to. The book’s co-author, Tucker Max, and publisher Simon and Schuster are also named as defendants.

Haddish has yet to respond publicly about the lawsuit.
