NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) The question of who bit Beyoncé – the deep, dark rabbit hole of conspiracy theory that delved into the greatest mystery since the JFK assassination – may finally be solved.
The question of who bit Bey at a party, which led to the movement #WhoBitBeyonce, has been on the lips of the nation for about a week now, but it may be answered, although things may be getting weirder.
“Multiple sources confirm to Page Six that the face-chomping culprit was indeed actress Sanaa Lathan,” even though she strongly denies it,” New York Post’s Page Six column said. Numerous sources told Page Six that the “Love & Basketball” star was talking to Jay-Z at his backstage VIP party at Los Angeles’ D’Usse in December when Beyoncé walked in and Lathan “playfully” bit her on the chin.
The whole mess began when comedian and “Girls Trip” star Tiffany Haddish told GQ magazine about the incident. The story was published on Monday.
“There was this actress there that’s just, like, doing the mostest,” Haddish told GQ. “She bit Beyoncé in the face.
“Beyoncé stormed away…went up to Jay-Z, and was like, ‘Jay! Come here! This bitch – ’ 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 bitch just bit Beyoncé?’”
Haddish said she told Queen Bey that the actress would get her “ass beat” that night but Beyoncé responded, “‘Tiffany, no. Don’t do that. That bitch is on drugs. She not even drunk. The bitch is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.’”
Not only did the news break the internet with #WhoBitBeyonce, but even outlets like CNN ran speculative reports. Lathan was named as a suspect, as were Lena Dunham, Jennifer Lawrence, Rosario Dawson and Sara Foster.
Chrissy Teigan originally expressed that she needed to know the answer to the mystery but apparently learned of the truth, telling the “Today” show cast that “There was a bite, yes. Listen, I think we’ve all done things under the influence,” according to Bustle. She said the culprit “loved everyone involved.”
Lathan tweeted on March 26, “Y’all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyoncé, and if I did it would’ve been a love bite.”
Lathan has not commented again on the subject, as of press time. Page Six noted that a source told Vulture that Haddish told the same story at a comedy show in January, saying only that the the culprit once dated French Montana – whom Lathan has been romantically linked to.
