Hollywood comedian and actor Martin Lawrence has revealed that he walked away from his own comedy sitcom, Martin, after his co-star, Tisha Campbell accused him of sexual harassment.
"It was just time to end," he told GQ about the show's end. "None of that was true. It was all a lot of bullsh*t."
Campbell quit the show in 1997 after Lawrence faced some trouble with the law. Producers reportedly sued Campbell for leaving the show, and she countersued with allegations of sexual harassment against Lawrence.
All parties reached a settlement out of court, and she agreed to return only if she could film her scenes separate from Lawrence.
"We don't need to talk about something that just didn't happen," said Lawrence. "So I just decided to walk away from the show. I just decided to end it. People said that I got canceled, but that wasn't the case. I decided to just leave the show."
He continued: "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."
Martin aired for five seasons and ran from 1992-1997. At its peak in 1992 the show had nearly 12 million viewers and won several comedy awards including a People's Choice Award for "Best New Comedy." When the show ended in 1997, Martin still boasted approximately 6 million viewers.
