The great mystery of the 21st century has finally been solved.
We know who did it.
We know who bit Beyonce.
For the past several days, social media has been stopped in its tracks as users across the country analyzed one section of an interview Tiffany Haddish gave to GQ.
In the cover story, the popular comedian and actress told a story about how she was at a party late last year when an unnamed female celebrity went up to Beyonce and took a small chunk out of her chin.
Maybe not a chunk, per se, but teeth most definitely met flesh, according to Haddish.
“There was this actress there, that’s just, like, doing the mostest,” Haddish said, implying in her own way that this woman was wasted, prior to adding:
“She bit Beyonce in the face.”
Elaborated Haddish, much to the delight of readers everywhere:
“So Beyonce 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 bitch just bit Beyonce?”
Once Haddish got confirmation that Bey that the bite really did take place, she was prepared to throw the eff down.
“I was like, ‘She gonna get her ass beat tonight,'” explained the Girls Trip star, adding:
“She was like, ‘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.’”
Haddish refused to identity the biter, however.
Chrissy Teigen went on Twitter and claimed to know who it was… but also remained mum.
However, Page Six claims to have solved the conundrum.
It was Sanaa Lathan, reports that newspaper column.
Multiple sources tell The New York Post that the Love & Basketball star had been chatting with Jay-Z at a D’Usse VIP party backstage after his gig in Los Angeles last December.
When Beyonce stepped in, Lathan playfully bit her on the chin.
That’s apparently the whole story.
“It was a big thing in the moment at the party, everyone was talking about how anyone would dare to do that,” a witness from the event told Page Six.
Who the heck would bite Beyonce?!?
Not me, Lathan claimed via Twitter on Tuesday.
“Y’all are funny,” she wrote at the time. “Under no circumstance did I bite Beyoncé and if I did it would be a love bite.”
We’re pretty sure that second comment canceled out the first.
And we’re pretty sure it was an admission by Lathan, too.
She has not yet commented on this Page Six report, but she can expect to hear plenty from the Beyhive tonight, tomorrow and, let’s face it, for the rest of her life.
