Who Bit Beyonce: the weirdest blind item of 2018 & we still don’t know

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Tiffany Haddish revealed more clues for the Weirdest Blind Item of 2018. Initially, we thought the blind item was “what actress did Tiffany Haddish try to beat down on Beyonce’s behalf because the actress might have flirted with Jay-Z?” Now the blind item is “which actress BIT BEYONCE ON THE FACE?” Tiffany revealed the full story in her GQ profile, and now people really, really want to know #WhoBitBeyonce.

What do we know for sure? We know that the actress has some kind of profile. Some people theorized that the actress is a white woman, but as far as I can tell, Tiffany never identified the woman’s race. We know she’s on drugs now too, and that the actress has been – in the past – friendly or warmly associated with the Carter family. Vulture and The Cut compiled a list of guests at this particular party and they came up with: Rihanna, James Franco, French Montana, Queen Latifah, G-Eazy, Diddy, Sara Foster, Jen Meyer, and Sanaa Lathan.

Chrissy Teigen – who is friends with everybody – started tweeting out some stuff

Someone suggested Gwyneth Paltrow and Chrissy replied “no I love her!” And then this:

Still no real clues. Then MediaTakeout had a story that the actress was none other than… Taraji P. Henson. I don’t believe that. I don’t want to believe that. A lot of people guessed Sanaa Lathan, which… I like her, but even I have heard some shady sh-t about her, and that makes me wonder if Sanaa was Chrissy’s first guess (which was wrong). What did you ladies come up with?

Ooooo it is NOT Sanaa.

    Oh I hope it’s not Taraji. I don’t watch her new show, but I will always love her from Person of Interest. And of course, now her films. But Detective Carter….I still miss Detective Carter.

  2. Talie says:

    It has to be an actress Beyonce hangs around enough to excuse that level of behavior, and it also has to be an actress with enough of a profile to not throw her right out!

    Poor Sara Foster and Sanaa Latham have bees all over their instagrams from the brief period they were being accused. Although, I’m still suspicious of Sanaa since she always has a cloud of mini-scandal around her.

  3. happyXamp says:

    I wonder what Bey thinks about Tiff leaking all of this. I also wonder if the bite was consentual.

    • Alissa says:

      I have a feeling Tiffany won’t be getting a lot of invites to hang with Bey and Jay – she broke the cardinal rule of total silence.

      • Una says:

        She would very lucky if only Bey and Jay blacklist her from the parties. She may not be invited to many parties in Hollywood at all if she keeps this on.

    • Sitka says:

      Seems like this might be damage control for the way the earlier story was phrased. It seemed like Jay might have had someone flirting with him the way she originally told it.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Yes the original story was the actress was very flirty with Jay-Z and bey confronted her and that’s when the biting incident happened.

      • Krill says:

        In light of the biting and Beyonce brushing it off, it was probably more like a druggie was being a mess and crossing boundaries in a persistent way, which can then make for troubling optics if a guy (especially a big black man) were to try to stop her because it would involve putting his hands on her or at least using his threatening voice. That would explain why Beyonce came up to deal with it and of course her lack of shame and then the biting.

  4. Nicole says:

    How soon until Bey and Jay slap Tiffany with an NDA so she stops using Beyonce in all her interviews? I mean if this was my friend I would be annoyed that she’s spreading my business and this is occurring on an even larger scale.

  5. aquarius64 says:

    What kind of people are the Carter’s hanging out with where they can get away with biting Beyonce in the face (if this is true)? I don’t care who you are; you bite me you’re done and jailed for assault.

  6. Jegede says:

    There is a strong code of silence amongst celebs.

    I mean you’ll be surprised at who has slept with whom ( do people even know Cameron Diaz and Sienna Miller dated P Diddy), who gets high together, who helped ‘deal’ with a pregnancy e.t.c

    But no ones ever blabs it stays secret kinda like FightClub.

    Tiffany doing this is fun for us, but’ll put Beyonce in an awkward position with her fellow celebs as it seems she hangs out with a consistent blabbermouth.

    • MellyMel says:

      I thought everyone knew Diddy got with Cameron & Sienna. I don’t think that’s a secret.

    • Bridget says:

      Celebs love to gossip just as much, but they don’t want to be caught. Gossip gets out about parties all the time, just not in GQ.

    • V says:

      Celebs & people in the industry gossip just like anyone else. Where do you think most blind items come from? They’re only interested in keeping their own reps clean.

  7. Maria F. says:

    if we are talking about biting – was it a nibble? was it a jokey bite?

    if she would have really full on bit her, she would have needed medical attention.

    I think this story is very blown out and B. is not slapping anybody with an NDA, as the story makes her look like a saint.

  8. FishBeard says:

    I hate when people spill the tea without naming names.

    Would it have been like an intended “love bite” by someone high off their face? It’s still assault. I feel bad for Beyonce because she is so private and I doubt that she wanted this to be exposed to the public.

    • Lana 234 says:

      @ fishbeard We will never know about who bit Beyonce. I like Tiffany Haddish but she won’t be invited to anymore exclusive parties. Celerbrities like gossip but only if the gossip stays within their little community.

  9. RBC says:

    This story is interesting, this is like the first time I can recall where a friend has publicly commented on attending a social event with Beyonce and JayZ. Usually when something shocking happens it is usually a unnamed source or “friend”. The only reason the infamous “elevator incident “ became known was because there was a camera in the elevator.

  10. Jussie says:

    Taraji wouldn’t surprise me honestly. I adore her as an actress, but she always seems super messy when she’s partying.

  11. Lucy says:

    No, it was NOT Taraji, ok?!

    • psl says:

      You were there?

      • Aimee says:

        Tiffany says it’s not Taraji:


        Sanaa’s “if I did it” denial is also…suspicious.

      • psl says:

        Ok, gotcha. She just seemed so adamant, I had to tease.

      • Krill says:

        Dear god, that tweet! Tiffany is in her late 30s how does she not know that in denying Tarajis involvement, her silence on other rumors will be taken as confirmation?

        I hope it WAS Sanaa, because even if she is innocent, she will have to live down this ignomy for the rest of her career.

        I DETEST blind items and the people who peddle them without regard for collateral casualities.

      • Lucy says:

        I wasn’t implying I knew a single thing about it! It may have sounded like that but it was actually me being all like “no way, I refuse to believe it!”

  12. Shotcaller says:

    Becky with the good teeth.

  13. Naddie says:

    Chrissy Teigen seems to be one of those people who are always trying to keep close to the “popular ones” and laugh and claps at anything they say, just to feel cool, but no one actually cares about them. An older version of Gretchen.

  14. Inas says:

    Gwyneth Paltrow?lol

    I think the biter maybe was one of her costars in her movies.

  15. tw says:

    Google films with the word “never” in the title.

  16. Missamanda says:

    OMG this did not happen.

    Beyonce and Jay-Z would not throw a party and allow the gust list to have somebody on it who would even come close to behaving towards one of the hosts that way. I don’t believe it, not one bit.

    They’re using Haddish to make them look cool and churn up gossip before their tour.

    come on people.

    • Shotcaller says:

      That’s the thing. I don’t think it was an angry bite. The biter probably sees herself as a friend which would explain the invitation and the reluctance to out her.

    • CN says:

      Yep. I think that’s what is happening here. Tiffany is not an idiot, she knows what she’s doing. No way she would want to give up her proximity to Jay and Bey and risk being on the outs with them by telling such stories. This is 100% sanctioned by the Carters.

    • Anon33 says:

      Yes. Tiffany is definitely being used as a mouthpiece here.

      And don’t get me wrong, I’m sure she loves it!! I’m not saying “oh no she’s being used!” I’m saying she’s in on it. Whatever it is.

  17. Pho sho says:

    Sanaa Lathan has a reputation for doing drugs and thirsting over unavailable men.

    It. Could. Be. Her.

  18. Skoochy says:

    I had assumed that if you bit Beyonce the last that would ever been seen of you is a team of bodyguards tossing your body wrapped in a rug into the ocean, no? Which actor was last spotted washing up on shore in party wear claiming ‘I’M FINE!!! NO JUST A QUICK SWIM! ALL’S FINE! STOP ASKING!!!!’?

  19. serena says:

    I used to like Taraji P. Henson a lot, then she defended Chris Brown multiple times and hung out with him.. soo, if it’s her who bit Queen Bee, I’m not that shocked or disappointed.

  20. HelloSunshine says:

    So is Tiffany spilling all this with or without Beyoncé’s permission? I’m worried for her and don’t want her to be blacklisted cause Bey is mad lol

  21. Steph says:

    Long time reader/first time commenter here. I wanted to see what everyone’s guesses were lol. I’m going with Jennifer Lawrence because she’s A-list -she would be invited to the same party as Jay & Bey- and I could believe that she was acting crazy. 👀

    • Shunel says:

      Jennifer Lawrence was in New York and the party was in LA.

    • Nicegirl says:

      Hey there, first time commenter, Steph! Welcome!!!!

      • Steph says:

        @ Shunel, Thanks for the info. I thought it was her for sure lol

        @ NiceGirl, Thank You!! Been here for a while and of course the strangest story I’ve heard in a long time is what made me comment

  22. kate says:

    I wish Beyonce’s next tour was sans the husband. Like, sis, I love your music but you chose to marry him, not your fans. If I wanted to see him, I’ll go to one of his concert.

    • Babs says:

      Jay’s set was great on the first joint tour though. Lowkey better than Beyoncé’s. She’s way better solo, in that way I agree with you.

    • Krill says:

      Their albums form a dialogue between a couple dealing with the impact of infidelity on their marriage. In fact they were initially supposed to be a joint album but Beyonce decided to release Lemonade first. If ever there was a reason for any two artist to tour jointly, this would be it. I look forward to seeing which songs from Lemonade will be paired with which from 4:44.

    • magnoliarose says:

      You aren’t alone it seems. Not as much interest in the tour. He seems to be riding her coat tails. He wouldn’t sell out anything or get much attention, so he tours with her. But her fans, a lot of them, don’t like him.
      I think people know too much about them now and the shine is gone.
      Also, they have separate fan bases.

    • oh-dear says:

      I think the whole thing is for entertainment and profit purposes. I don’t think either cares who sleeps with whom, but this narrative makes a good narrative and gets their fans emotionally invested.

  23. NΞΞNΔ ΖΞΞ says:

    If Tiffany’s story is true, then I think we’re missing some context. I’m guessing that the bite wasn’t a violent attack (like Solange in the elevator) but more of an awkward misread of a situation that happens when you’re high AF. The actress probably thought it was sexy or provocative, but was really just inappropriate and bizarre. Which would explain Beyonce’s measured reaction…

  24. Max says:

    Paula Patton

  25. Nicegirl says:

    I’m on the edge of my seat!! Is this fake news, Or did some messy b-tch actually bite queen b?? If so, was it a love bite, cuz we all know Bey always looks like a snack, and the actress in question was wigity wasted, or is our girl Tiff on the Carters payroll rn as a hype girl for their upcoming tour, as othe commenters have suggested?

    I’m riveted!! Who was it? Did it happen? The gall of this lady we’re all wondering about has me shocked and amazed, like, WHO would ever think to so such a thing??

  26. Onemoretime says:

    If it did happen then Bey & Jay gave permission to leak the story, as they are notorious ‘stunt queens” (DListed Michael K) for their up coming On the Run Tour 2. If they didn’t want this out it would not be out. I have heard from a few diehard beehive members that they are burned out in her tours and they difinetly don’t want to pay to see the man who cheated on her! Her tickets are always to expensive for me but she does put on one hella of a show!

  27. BJ says:

    Tiffany did this interview right after party.GQ is just posting the interview now.Why are people acting like she did the interview last week.She knows now to never mention Beyonce’s name again.

  28. Fabi says:

    TMZ says is Sanaa…

    • me says:

      Yeah I just read that. They must have some reliable sources or they’d risk getting sued. I don’t know but damn Tiffany’s got a big mouth !

  29. Chloe B says:

    Enty is Tweet teasing that he’s going to reveal at 11:45am PDT.

  30. katriona says:

    Out of interest, what kind of drug would one have to take to make biting someone seem acceptable? I was thinking that Queen Latifah is the only name of any magnitude that would come with a Queen Beyonce get of jail free pass. But I can’t see her on much more than weed.

  31. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    My guess is Vivica Fox. I have no idea if she was even at the party or not but for some reason she just instantly came to mind.

  32. magnoliarose says:

    I believe it was Sanaa. She is messy and her thing with Denzel messed up her mind. I can see Bey feeling throwing her out might have turned into something bigger so deciding against it.
    Yep Sanaa.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Its all over the internet that it was her, reports are saying that ‘someone’ from Tiffany’s ‘camp’ confirmed it. I feel bad for Sanaa, if she has a problem having it outed like this will cost her work – Tiffany should have kept her mouth shut but she is too desperate for the attention that comes with being in with Beyonce and Jayz.

      I can see Tiffany being sued over this.

      • KBB says:

        I don’t think it’s that she wants attention for it, I think she’s just genuinely star struck and sees them as celebrities rather than peers. Not that she should see them as true peers, but I don’t think she sees herself as an insider, so she can’t help but spill. She’s acting how I think a lot of people would if they were suddenly privy to exclusive gossip, which is to tell everyone. If she saw herself as part of the club, she’d be showing more discretion.

        A lawsuit would just have the Streisand effect and no one involved would want that. I think she will stop getting invites to these types of parties if she keeps this up. People who don’t like their business out in the open will probably be keeping their distance.

      • magnoliarose says:

        I didn’t read the other guesses or see it trending. I don’t read other blogs much. I just couldn’t see it being anyone else, and my best sister friend had no doubts, so I threw it out there.
        I have a lot of problems with this. I think Tiffany can expect a backlash. This wasn’t something anyone needed to know. Now Sanaa has to walk around humiliated and be attacked by crazy bee people.
        I would drop a friend immediately if they did what she did. No matter how I felt about the person who bit me.
        This is shady and bitchy.
        Disappointed in TH.

      • Oliviajoy1995 says:

        Beyonce and Jay Z craft their image very well. I’m sure Tiffany had permission from Beyonce before she ever told the story.

  33. Cheshiresmile says:

    😂😂oh NO!! I was just listening to BBC, and they just ran all the details together and reportedly that “Tiffany Haddish upon meeting Beyonce at a party BIT her on the face.” #inevitable

  34. Alexandria says:

    This takes the weirdest gossip of 2018 award. When is biting Beyonce gonna appear in Jay Z lyrics?
