Tiffany Haddish finally confirmed who bit Beyonce after months of speculation.
Back in March, Tiffany Haddish told GQ a crazy story about a private party she attended where she said an actress bit Beyonce in the face.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Haddish confirmed the culprit was actress Sanaa Lathan.
“I’m super good friends with her stepmom and her dad [Stan, a producer-director], and they were mad at me,” Haddish said, smiling to confirm Lathan was indeed the perpetrator. “They were like, ‘Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together, it’s so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?'”
“But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name!” Haddish insisted. “I was just trying to say how Beyonce kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down.”
But Lathan previously denied the story in a May interview with Health, calling the allegation “absurd,” “bizarre” and even funny.
“Yeah, it blew up. And I think it’s the most absurd thing I’ve ever been involved with,” Lathan said. “Thank God I’ve been in this business for 20 years and have had so many rumors about me. They used to devastate me in my 20s, but in order to survive in this business, you just have to let it roll. I adore Beyonce. I would never do anything malicious like that — to her, or to anyone. It’s so bizarre. I thought it was the funniest thing ever that it was a news story. It’s so crazy.”
