Sometimes you have to know when to hold them and when to fold them. These actors didn’t know how to hold them and jumped the gun by walking away from a hit show.
Martin Lawrence cut his teeth as a stand up comedian and made a name for himself as the host of Def Comedy Jam club before he was given his own show. Tisha Campbell was cast to play his girlfriend on his sitcom “Martin” and the two had a working relationship that went all the way back to 1990’s House Party. But by the fifth season, Campbell was suddenly gone from the show. Soon after her departure, she slapped Lawrence and the show’s producers with a sexual harassment lawsuit alleging verbal and physical assaults. The suit was settled out of court so Campbell could appear in the season finale with the condition that she not appear in any scenes with Lawrence.
