Tiffany Haddish appears to finally confirm who bit Beyonce at a party
The year of 2018 has broached many fascinating questions. Will Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un become best buddies after more than a year of threats and insults? Did Kayne West say slavery was a choice to increase his record sales? Whatever will happen next in Ariana Grande's love life?
However, there is one question that, to many people, is more important than all of the others: who on earth bit Beyoncé?
This mystery first emerged back in March when actress Tiffany Haddish claimed that she once witnessed someone biting the Single Ladies star on the face. The alleged bite apparently happened back on December 22 following Jay Z's 4:44 tour stop in Los Angeles.
Her words immediately set off alarm bells among the Beyhive; they needed to know who gnawed their queen, and they needed to know now.
Weeks of outrage, a frenzied social media hunt and no comment from Beyoncé later, there was still no luck with the search. Plus - despite leaving hints and revealing that the woman in question was flirting with Jay-Z beforehand - Haddish had flat-out refused to name the mystery person who had sunk their teeth into the star's cheek.
She did give details of the incident, saying: "There was this actress there that's just, like, doing the mostest... So Beyoncé stormed away went up to Jay-Z, and was like, 'Jay! Come here!' This b****—’ and snatched him. They went to the back of the room. I was like, 'What just happened?' And Beyoncé's friend walked up and was like, 'Can you believe this b**** just bit Beyoncé?'"
"So I said to Beyoncé, 'Did she really bite you?'", she continued. "She was like, 'Yeah.' I was like, 'She gonna get her ass beat tonight.' She was like, 'Tiffany, no. Don’t do that. That bitch is on drugs. She not even drunk. The b**** is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.'"
However, now, after months of radio silence, BeyHive fans can rest assured, because we finally know who bit Beyoncé. Haddish has finally appeared to confirm that the alleged mystery woman was, in fact, Love & Basketball star Sanaa Lathan.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she said: "I’m super good friends with her stepmom and her dad, and they were mad at me. 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?"'
She continues: "But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyoncé kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down."
So, after months of waiting, we finally know who is accused of sinking their teeth into Queen Bey. But, although fans may be happy with this revelation, we know that Sanaa Lathan won't be. The Alien vs. Predator actress has previously denied claims that she was the one to nip the Crazy in Love singer, writing on Twitter: "Y’all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyonce and if I did it would’ve been a love bite".
So, is Lathan really the culprit? There's no way of knowing for sure, but what we do know is that this story just got all the more juicy...
