Since the "Girls Trip" star made the revelation in December that an actress who Bey claimed was on drugs bit the superstar, she also revealed that she had to sign an NDA over the drama, but it hasn't stopped her from rubbing elbows with other A-listers since.
Haddish claimed in several interviews that when she was at a star-studded after-party late previous year, an actress (whom she refused to name) bit Beyoncé in the face. Beyonce's step-father Richard Lawson said the whole story is bogus and nobody every bit Jay-Z's wife's face.
Tiffany Haddish confirmed what we already know: Sanaa Lathan bit Beyoncé. When the interviewer brought up the rumored culprit, Haddish smiled before explaining: "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!" Haddish insisted. "I was just trying to say how Beyonce kept me from goin' to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down". "Don't do that", Haddish said at the time. That is true. It was others who proffered Lathan's name, but on the other hand, Haddish hasn't said "No, it wasn't her!" either, which is a little odd considering she says she's so close to the family.
Having the shadow of a possible violent act against a beloved superstar can't be easy, especially when coupled with the drug use allegation.
For her part, Haddish claims that instead of becoming a social pariah after the #WhoBitBeyoncé hoopla, she has actually been invited to more parties than ever. She recalls walking around Los Angeles with her friend Anna in the early aughts, when the two stumbled upon Barr toiling in her front yard. "She looks at me (Haddish makes a disgusted face), and ran in the house". I thought, 'Maybe she don't want to be bothered today.' A week later, we walk by again, and I told Anna - she's Hispanic, but she looks white - she should say hi this time.
Despite the media storm that followed her comments, Haddish told THR she hasn't experienced any personal fallout. "I think, 'F-k that b--h.' That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it's not new. She been racist. Why'd you all give her a TV show?"
