After months of speculation wondering #WhoBitBeyoncé at a JAY-Z concert afterparty back in December, Tiffany Haddish has come clean. The actress, who started the scandal when she recalled her version of the events in an interview with GQ, claimed to The Hollywood Reporter that the culprit was , Love and Basketball star Sanaa Lathan.
“I’m super good friends with her stepmom and her dad [Stan, a producer-director], and they were mad at me,” the Girls Trip star said. “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.”
Y’all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyonce and if I did it would’ve been a love bite 💋

Haddish, 38, added that despite the scandal, she’s being invited to more events than ever.
“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,” she said. “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.’”
