There are some questions that are destined to haunt me forever: Does Bigfoot actually exist? What really happened to Amelia Earhart? And, of course, which actress dared to bite Beyoncé on the face — ON THE FACE — at a party in December 2017? While the answers to the first two will likely continue to elude me, it's time to investigate the latter situation.
Let's examine the facts, shall we? First, I have to thank Tiffany Haddish for this information, even if the mystery is currently driving me insane. During her recent profile in GQ, the Groupon-loving comedian opened up about attending a bash Beyoncé and husband JAY-Z threw last Winter, which is where she met Queen Bey for the first time. They shared "a brief, pleasant exchange" that quickly evolved into something more.
"There was this actress there that's just, like, doing the mostest. She bit Beyoncé in the face," Tiffany explained, declining to name the bite-happy star. "So Beyoncé stormed away, went up to Jay-Z, and was like, 'Jay! Come here! This b*tch—' 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 b*tch just bit Beyoncé?'"
Reader, when I tell you I gasped.
"And so then . . . a lot of things happened," Tiffany continued. Apparently Tiffany began keeping an eye on the mysterious actress throughout the night, until finally she approached Tiffany and told her to stop dancing, which didn't go down so well. Tiffany went up to Beyoncé and told her things were about to get physical, but then Beyoncé, a tranquil goddess even after having her face bitten, asked the Girls Trip star to "have fun" instead. They took the below selfie.
Oh, did you think that's where this drama ended? Nope! "Near the end of the party," Haddish added, "Beyoncé's at the bar, so I said to Beyoncé, 'Did she really bite you?' She was like, 'Yeah.' I was like, 'She gonna get her ass beat tonight.' She was like, 'Tiffany, no. Don't do that. That b*tch is on drugs. She not even drunk. The b*tch is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.'"
The situation has garnered so much attention that even Chrissy Teigen has hopped into the ring, tweeting that she can "only think of one person who would do this" and that she is "the worst." So, who is the face biter? Despite everyone jumping to the conclusion that it must be Jennifer Lawrence (likely because that sounds like a very Jennifer Lawrence thing to do), the Red Sparrow star was in NYC at the time of Bey and Jay's December 2017 party (that's when she was spotted reuniting with ex-boyfriend Darren Aronofsky).
According to the sleuths over at The Cut, that leaves just two actresses on the guest list for this party who likely committed the crime: Sara Foster and Sanaa Lathan. While we can't prove it was either of them definitively, some fans have speculated that Love & Basketball's Lathan is the most likely candidate, given her history of 1) hanging out with French Montana, who was also at Beyoncé's party, and 2) getting "too turnt," as evidenced by the below Instagram.
TL;DR? The identity of the actress is still a mystery, but I will think about who it might be every day, for as long as I live.
