Think of the most untouchable celebrity in the world, and Beyoncé would probably be pretty high on your list. So when it was revealed that someone bit Bey at an A-List party, the world went into shock. Unsurprisingly, the hive aren’t happy.
The story first came to light in a GQ interview with Tiffany Haddish. Speaking about a party in LA last December, Tiffany said: “Near the end of the party, Beyoncé’s at the bar, so I said to Beyoncé, ‘Did she really bite you?’ 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*tch is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.’”
A representative for Bey told GQ: “I absolutely cannot comment on any of this, as I have no knowledge.” So that’s not a denial.
Back in February, a story published by The Cut claimed that Tiffany attended a Jay-Z concert after party last December.
“I was talking to Jay-Z for a little bit,” said Tiffany. “And there was another actress that was there who was also talking to Jay-Z. And she touched Jay-Z’s chest, and Beyoncé came walking up like, ‘Biiiitch!’
“She didn’t say that. But her demeanour, her body from the way she walked up on her was like, ‘Get your hands off my man’s chest.’ So then, she started talking to the other actress and some other stuff happened, but I’m not gonna say nothin’ yet. But it’s gonna be in these streets.”
So basically there was a fight over Jay-Z and Beyoncé got bitten. We see another Lemonade on its way.
At the time, actresses Sanaa Lathan and Sara Foster, who both attended the party, took to social media to deny it was them, but could one of them have been telling porkies?
Haddish has now alleged to the Hollywood Reporter that it was Sanaa Lathan.
When asked if it was Lathan, Haddish smiled and explained,
“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?’ 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.”
You’d think that after spilling the goss, Haddish wouldn’t exactly be at the top of people’s guestlists, but it seems that isn’t the case. She continued,
“The other day, someone was saying, like, ‘Oh my God, you should keep your mouth shut ’cause now you’re never gonna be invited to parties,’ but I got invited to way more parties after that. It’s ridiculous how many parties. ‘Can you come to my party?’ ‘Can you come to my thing?’ They want me to talk about something at their thing ’cause they think, like, ‘This is gonna put me back on if Tiffany says something.'”
At the time, people on Twitter were shook with Chrissy Teigen (who else?) leading the way. Here are our favourite reactions:
Jay and Bey are, as usual, keeping a dignified silence. We’ll keep you updated.
