People have wondered for years now why Martin Lawrence's popular sitcom 'Martin' was cancelled, and now after opening up about his decision to cancel, we finally know.
In his interview with GQ, Martin talks about the 1997 sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by his co-star Tisha Campbell and cites that as the reason why he ultimately decided to cancel the show. Campbell played his onscreen wife, Gina, from 1992 to 1997.
She left the show in late 1996, and charged him with repeated sexual harassment and sexual battery, verbal abuse, among other things. However, Martin revealed that things between the two are great, and that there's nothing but love.
“I love Tisha. I’ve seen her then and now, now and then, always with nothing but love. I have nothing but love for her, and I always have.”
In the interview, he also revealed why he was out of the spotlight, saying that he had gone into a coma and needed to readjust to society and learn how to talk to people again.
“I had to step back a little bit and get some time for myself. I was getting worn down a little bit. Scripts were just coming and coming and coming. I couldn’t do anything,” he recalled. “And I went through a coma and all that stuff.”
Props to Martin for speaking out about this, this was for sure not easy interview. Now, Martin's back with Bad Boys 3 and you know we're excited for this one. 😎
