However, Haddish, 42, cast doubt on that version of events and said she’s ultimately ‘disappointed’ with her ex.

Speaking to Jason Lee on Fox Soul’s Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored, she explained: ‘He might be the type of person that never really settles with somebody, maybe he’s like, you know, like a bee going from flower to flower to flower. 

‘I don’t know. I wish him nothing but joy and happiness, you know. He will always be cool.’
