Representatives from Haddish and Spears denied the allegations in separate statements on September 1.

In a statement published by TMZ, Jane Doe said: “My family and I have known Tiffany Haddish for many years and now we know she would never hurt me or my brother or help anyone else do something that could harm us. We wish Tiffany the best and are happy to be able to put all this behind us ”.
The statement makes no mention of Spears, who is exonerated even after being fired.
The actor previously accused the couple of “intentional infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence, sexual assault, sexual harassment and sexual abuse of a minor.”

Spears would later tell Jane “to mimic what she saw on the screen, including noises just like the ones she heard during the video.”
