Tiffany Haddish had a rough New Year’s Eve in Miami, and insiders claim her drinking issues are finally getting the best of her. After a night of drinking, Haddish completely bombed during her stand-up performance on New Year’s Eve, which has reportedly put her close friends on high alert.
“Tiffany has been enjoying her drinks a lot lately,” a source shared. “Her people are concerned. It’s not at an intervention level yet, but she needs to watch her step.”
While it does not sound like Haddish needs professional help, she might want to think twice about partying hard the night before a performance.

According to Radar Online, Haddish embarrassed herself when she couldn’t remember jokes and messed up punch lines. She bombed so hard that a few fans walked out on her and were clearly disappointed by the performance.
At one point during her routine, things got so bad that Haddish busted out a bottle of alcohol and started drinking on stage.
Hours prior to the incident, Haddish shared a video on Instagram about how she was partying hard the night before the event and that same morning.
Following her disastrous outing, the 39-year-old comedian apologized to fans on social media and said it won’t happen a second time.
Although Haddish flubbed her performance, fellow comedian Alonzo Bodden thought she actually did pretty well considering the circumstances.
Bodden, who is a previous winner on Last Comic Standing, said that Haddish redeemed herself a little by drinking on stage and admitting that she was a little tipsy. He also thinks she handled the walkouts well and praised her for not lashing out at fans.

In addition to apologizing on Twitter, Haddish expressed regret that the show wasn’t better.
She may be in the hot seat at the moment, but it is probably safe to say that Tiffany Haddish will fully redeem herself in the near future. After all, she probably doesn’t want to be remembered as the comic who bombed on New Year’s Eve because she drank too much.
