Back in the '90s, Martin Lawrence was at his prime, appearing on Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing," "What's Happening Now!!" and "Def Comedy Jam."

The very first season of his show "Martin," was watched by 11 million people in just one week. However, after five seasons, the hit show ended abruptly when his co-star Tisha Campbell filed and settled a lawsuit against him, claiming she was sexually harassed and abused.

Martin denied all allegations against him, choosing to walk away from the show entirely instead.

MAKING IT CLEAR THAT HE QUIT THE SHOW

While many people said that the show was canceled, Lawrence insists that he actually quit because of the issues surrounding it.

After everything, he and Campbell never spoke about the whole ordeal, as there was no reason for them to talk about something that never happened.

"We don't need to talk about something that just didn't happen. 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."

HOW HE FEELS ABOUT TISHA CAMPBELL

As for how he feels about Tisha after everything that's happened, Martin says that it's "all love" from his perspective. After all, Martin denied all allegations against him, choosing to walk away from the show entirely instead.

"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."

ANOTHER ISSUE CONCERNING MARTIN LAWRENCE

The Tisha-Martin issue isn't the only controversy that the actor downplayed, as during the season, his co-star Garrett Morris, who played Stan Winters on "Martin," was cut out from the series after three seasons.

However, that wasn't the worst thing that happened to Morris during those times, as he had an altercation with a mugger who shot him in the chest and intestines.

ALLEGED LIES TOLD TO THE PRESS BY LAWRENCE

After several surgeries, Morris received his script for his final appearance in the show. The story shows him selling his radio station and moving to China.

According to Morris, Lawrence fired him while recovering at the hospital and lied about coming to visit him.

“Not only fired me while I was in the hospital itself, but then went around telling people in interviews that he came and sat by my bed and cried and stuff like that. The same person.”

The actor reportedly never visited him while at the hospital, and the final taping day for his character was the last day he ever heard from Lawrence.
