T.J. Miller’s former bodyguard Abraham Haddad says the troubled comic has not paid him $237,726.67 that he allegedly owes, and paints a picture of an out-of-control star.
Letters seen by Page Six were sent to Miller’s accountant last April and May.
“It’s a sad day when somebody refuses to hold up their commitments to those who have (literally) protected them, not only physically, but also with their own mental well-being,” Haddad wrote. “Let’s not forget the myriad times that I kept you from being hauled off to jail and kept your name out of the tabloids.”
Haddad — who now lives in his car — says he worked for Miller for over a decade, but was fired in March 2019 following an incident when Miller was increasingly intoxicated and erratic.
Haddad alleges that while working for Miller, he tried to keep the star out of trouble, but, “I would show up [to his green room] and there would be empty bottles . . . He was constantly under the influence. I felt [like I] was a handler, executive assistant and bodyguard.”
Haddad claims that in 2017, when a woman alleged that Miller sexually assaulted her, the comic told him and another guard that “he was going to give us the address and to threaten her to not come out with the allegations.” But, “we said, ‘We are your bodyguards, not your henchmen.’ ” (Miller has denied the assault allegations.)
Haddad also told us that Miller bullied him.
“There would be belittling and fat shaming . . . He constantly was telling me, ‘You need to get to a gym’ . . . I didn’t even have a house to go to.”
The ex-“Silicon Valley” star was arrested in 2016 for allegedly slapping an Uber driver, and arrested for calling in a fake bomb threat on Amtrak in 2018. He settled with the driver, and was reportedly negotiating a plea in the Amtrak case. A hearing is scheduled for this month.
When reached for comment, Miller said in an e-mail: “I’m not going to read it, I don’t think. Won’t make any difference, unless you think I should. Thanks Stacey!”
