TIFFANY HADDISH CONFIRMS SANAA LATHAN AS THE BEYONCÉ FACE BITER
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Tiffany Haddish confirms that Sanaa Lathan was the celebrity who allegedly nibbled on Bey’s face at a private party back in Dec. 2017.
When the interviewer brings up the rumored culprit, Haddish smiles before explaining stating: “I’m super good friends with her stepmom and her dad (producer-director stan Lathan), 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?’ But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyonce kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down.”
The incident first came to light when Haddish mentioned it in a March GQ interview, claiming she witnessed someone biting Bey and subsequently threatened to beat her up until Bey stopped her. “She was like, ‘Tiffany, no. Don’t do that. That b—h is on drugs. She not even drunk… She not like that all the time. Just chill,'” she recounted.
Lathan previously denied that she was the actress who chomped on the “Formation” singer. “Y’all are funny,” she tweeted in March. “Under no circumstances did I bite Beyonce and if I did it would’ve been a love bite.”
