Although Richard Lawson says Tiffany Haddish lied about the rumored #WhoBitBeyoncé story, the comedian is still holding on to the story. And this time she’s actually confirming what the internet says to be true — it was Sanaa Lathan. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the interviewer mentions the touchy subject and Haddish reportedly asks whether she knows who did it. When Lathan’s name comes up, the Girls Trip star says this.
“I’m super good friends with her stepmom and her dad [Stan, a producer-director], and they were mad at me,” she reveals.
“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.”
Since rumors of the Love & Basketball star’s involvement, she has shut down all rumors, insisting it never happened.
Y’all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyonce and if I did it would’ve been a love bite ?

Bey’s longtime publicist Yvette Noel-Schure, addressed the rumors saying, “I absolutely cannot comment on any of this because I have no knowledge.”
While we love the comedian’s rise to stardom, acts like this and the conversation she and Brad Pitt allegedly had about hooking up, that makes us wonder if she should just keep quiet.
TELL US: Do you believe Tiffany?
