Tiffany Haddish is ready to get herself some help after her most recent DUI arrest.
The “Girls Trip” star was taken into custody on Friday after she was spotted asleep behind the wheel of her vehicle, which was stopped in the middle of the road. The arrest went viral online, with some fans urging the comedian to get a hold of her drinking. In a now-deleted Instagram Reel from the night of her detention, many followers swarmed her comment section, accusing her of being visibly drunk. When speaking to Entertainment Tonight on Monday, Haddish seemingly heard the concerns loud and clear, telling ET host Kevin Frazier, “This will never happen again.”
“I’m going to get some help so I can learn balance and boundaries,” Haddish reassured him.
Her recent DUI is the second one in a year. In January 2022, she was arrested in Atlanta after someone also witnessed her asleep behind the wheel in a nearly identical incident. Around the time of that arrest, Haddish shared that the death of her dog and friend, Bob Saget, was weighing heavily on her. In recent years, her personal life has also been a bit rocky, which could account for her current issues. Haddish was sued for grooming a brother and sister who participated in a sexually suggestive skit with her and Aries Spears. Earlier this year, she also hinted that her 2021 break-up with rapper Common wasn’t “mutual,” as he’d previously said. This could be an indicator that she is not quite over their split.
Either way, Haddish is taking accountability for her actions. During the Thanksgiving holiday, she took the opportunity to spread cheer by handing out meals at The Laugh Factory and performing a free stand-up set.
