The Girls Trip star was cited by authorities for driving under the influence after dozing off in the middle of the street. In a new interview, Haddish says she is going to seek help following the incident.
“I’m going to get some help so I can learn balance and boundaries,” the comedian told ET.
Haddish also assured that “this will never happen again.” According to the actress, before the incident, she was at The Laugh Factory helping feed the underprivileged on Thanksgiving day and also performed a special comedy routine.
On Friday night, Haddish addressed the arrest during a performance at The Laugh Factory in Long Beach, California.
“What happened last night?” Haddish said hours after news broke she was cited with a DUI. “Ah, damn. You tell me. I don’t know.”
She then joked, “I prayed to God to send me a man with a job, preferably in a uniform.”
“God answered my prayers,” she said. “Because God believes in me.”
This was not the first time that Haddish was arrested for driving under the influence. In 2022, Haddish was involved in a similar situation in Georgia. After the incident, Haddish made an appearance on The Tonight Show where she made a similar joke.
“I can say this, Jimmy… I’ve been praying to God to send me a new man. A good man. And God went ahead and sent me four… in uniform,” Haddish told Fallon.
She continued, “And now I got a really great lawyer, and we’re going to work it out. I’ve got to get my asking of things to God a little better!”
