Aries Spears has finally addressed the alleged child sexual abuse claims he is facing alongside Tiffany Haddish.
According to him, this is a shakedown attempt, and even though he wants to speak about the content of the videos he can’t because of legal reasons.
He made it clear he isn’t a coward and that he isn’t running from anything or guilty of anything.

Tiffany Haddish has spoken out about her role in the skit, with her legal team also calling the allegations ‘bogus’.
‘I know people have a bunch of questions. I get it. I’m right there with you. ‘Unfortunately, because there is an ongoing legal case, there’s very little that I can say right now.
‘But, clearly, while this sketch was intended to be comedic, it wasn’t funny at all – and I deeply regret having agreed to act in it.
‘I really look forward to being able to share a lot more about this situation as soon as I can.’
We recently reported in an exclusive with Hollywoodunlocked that what was intended to be a major “shakedown” for Tiffany Haddish turned out to be a great relief for the comedian.
According to HU – Haddish was approached by Spears to take on the skit when she was an up-and-coming comedian.
She was not present when those inappropriate scenes were filmed nor did she get to see the completed project when it was finalized at the time.
When she eventually saw the final product, she later asked for the video to be taken down immediately but Aries refused and the skit later showed up on the platform, Funny or Die digital.
Those who came across the unsettling clip can agree that the video was not even close to funny.
