Tiffany Haddish is such an inspiration.
For her new memoir, titled The Last Black Unicorn, the Girls Trip star detailed the many hardships she went under prior to finding notoriety and luck. What a journey !!
Haddish certainly had a rough upbringing as she was abused by her mother and was molested while in the promote care system. Afterward on, Tiffany became a victim of domestic abuse at the hands of her ex-husband. Like we said, the 38 -year-old comedienne has certainly overcome quite a bit.
1. The South Los Angeles native please open about the abuse she suffered from her mom. According to Haddish, her mommy received a head injury in a car accident and was never truly the same after the incident. The abuse first started with verbal insults, with Tiffany’s mother calling her ugly and saying she hated the youngster.
By age nine, Tiffany’s mother started beating her. Haddish and her siblings were placed in the foster care system for the first time after her mama got into an altercation with a neighbor. Apparently, Haddish’s momma reached the male neighbour with a two-by-four, and also accidentally make his baby. After being place on an involuntary 5150 hold, physicians diagnosed the matriarch with schizophrenia. Eventually, she was admitted to a country mental facility.
2. Tiffany expended time in foster care between the ages of 13 and 18. During her time in the system, Tiffany experienced physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. Specifically, the father of her foster mama offered to suck on her breasts to help them grow. She was only 13 at the time. It’s said he made the offer after he caught her stuffing toilet paper in her training bra. The man performed the inappropriate act everyday for 15 minutes before heading toward school.
Sadly, Haddish didn’t realize she was assaulted until she was around 19. She wrote 😛 TAGEND
“In my intellect, ‘molested’ entailed someone hurt you in some kind of route. Like, they took something from you that you didn’t want to give. And what the old man did never hurt. It didn’t necessarily feel good, either, it was just whatever. And he never tried nothing else with me , not even once. It was just like–in my mind–he was helping me out.”
3. Tiffany survived an abusive relationship with her ex husband. Although Haddish’s former flame was jealous and physically violent, the pair wedded and divorced twice. Still, things escalated so badly between the two that Tiffany once went to a police station and told the cops 😛 TAGEND
“Y’all need to lock me up, because I’m about to kill my husband.”
Thankfully, the police officers considered her bruises and called her an ambulance. They then arrested Tiffany’s ex.
The next day, Tiffany suffered from a miscarriage. Haddish was unaware that she was pregnant at the time of the miscarriage.
4. Revenge is a dish best served hot. Dooky hot. The up-and-comer get revenge on one ex who cheated on her by crapping in his Air Jordans. She then dedicated the shoes back to the ex boyfriend. To attain things juicer, the unnamed ex also made a sexuality videotape with his mistress.
In order to get revenge on both of the participants, Haddish had a bootlegger splice together footage from the sex videotape with Charlie’s Angels VHS videotapes — and then sent the doctored tapes to his family members.
5. Tiffany’s quick wit is a sign of her intelligence. However, until the ninth grade, Tiffany was basically illiterate. Despite having a first or second grade reading level, Tiffany took AP courses in school. Haddish finally properly learned how to read and write after a educator detected her plight and started devoting her private lessons.
6. In her early twenties, Tiffany faced an unplanned pregnancy while dating a man. The actress chose to abort the child as she didn’t want this man’s baby AND didn’t feel ready to become a mother in general. Although she felt awful about the abortion, she chose she’d “rather go to hell and succumb without a newborn on Earth, agony, than have a newborn here on Earth that suffered.” Fair enough.
After undergoing the abortion, Haddish penned that she jumped out of the bed and started to dance. She also hollered 😛 TAGEND
“I’m free !! I’m free !! Thank God almighty, I am free! “
Intense stuff. Be sure to snag a copy of The Last Black Unicorn for yourself as it’s on bookshelves now!
