According to theJasmineBRAND.com, Stewart is taking legal action against the Girls Trip star over the domestic violence claims she made in the book. He has also enlisted Atlanta attorneys E. Carlos Tanner, III, and Michael T. Sterling, who are both currently representing Russell Simmons in his sexual assault case, with the latter standing as Eva Marcille's boyfriend.

The site further reports that Stewart's new legal team is looking at a potential libel and defamation suit which will specficially address the claims the comedienne made when she accused their client of physical abuse that led to her suffering from a miscarriage.
