Getting To Know Tiffany Haddish

By Kelcie Willis, Cox Media Group National Content Desk

LOS ANGELES —

Tiffany Haddish has all but confirmed who bit Beyonce at a party earlier this year in her cover interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

When the THR reporter whispers the rumored suspect -- actress Sanaa Lathan, Haddish says, “I'm super good friends with her stepmom and her dad (producer-director Stan Lathan), and they were mad at me," she said. "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.”

Haddish also shares a story from another party. This time, it’s about hitting on Leonardo DiCaprio, whose children she’s joked about wanting to have.

"Yeah, I met him at a party two, three months ago, and I asked him if he'd let me hit that," she said. "He's like, 'Tiffany, you're so funny.' I'm like, 'I'm serious.' And then he goes, 'I mean, I'd do it, but …' I was like, 'Come on, wasn't you in a squad? The coochie squad or something?’ I told him, 'My only stipulation: I wanna do it with you as your character in What's Eating Gilbert Grape.' He starts bustin' up laughin'. 'Why?' he asks, and I say, 'Cause I feel like that performance deserves a real reward and that reward is this (gestures at her own body).' He starts goin' into how he got into the role, how he worked with these kids and all this stuff, and I'm just listenin' and listenin', like, 'Mmm-hmm, mmm-hmm.' I finally go, 'All that's good, I just need to know, When's this gonna happen?'"

Aside from propositioning DiCaprio, Haddish also sounds off on Roseanne Barr, whose rebooted sitcom was canceled by ABC after she compared former adviser to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett to an ape. Jarrett is a black woman.

"I don't know if you know El Segundo (California), but if you're black and you're driving through El Segundo, you're going to get pulled over. I used to visit my friend Anna there, and it got to a point where I was calling the police officers by name. 

"One day, we were walking around the neighborhood, and Anna says, 'Oh, Roseanne lives there.' Now, I loved Roseanne, and the next day we walked by, and she was in her yard. I say, 'Hi, Roseanne.' She looks at me (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. So she says, 'Hi, Roseanne,' and Roseanne goes, 'Hey!' I thought, 'Maybe she got to know us.' Then I go back, like, a week later, I wave again and say, 'Hi, Roseanne! I love your comedy,' and she (makes the same disgusted face) and turns her head. I think, '(Expletive) that (expletive).' That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it's not new. She been racist, why'd you all give her a TV show?”

Tiffany Haddish says Beyoncé was bitten in the face by an actress at a party

Tiffany Haddish is sharing more details on a tense moment she says Beyoncé had with an unnamed actress at a party.

In a new interview with GQ, published Monday, the “Girls Trip” comedian says the night she met the singer at a party in December was the same night the singer was bitten in the face by an actress.

“There was this actress there that’s just, like, doing the mostest,” Haddish told GQ. “She bit Beyoncé in the face.”

“So Beyoncé stormed away, went up to Jay-Z, and was like, ‘Jay! Come here! This (expletive) —’ and snatched him,” Haddish said. “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 (expletive) just bit Beyoncé?’”

Haddish previously told a similar story in less detail in a January 31 interview with Vulture. On March 2, DJ Khaled released his single “Top Off,” which features verses from Jay-Z, Future and Beyoncé.

line on Beyoncé’s verse says, “If they’re tryna party with the queen they gon’ have to sign a non-disclosure.”

The lyric led to speculation that Beyonce was referencing Haddish’s loose lips on the incident at the party. Regardless of who the line was directed to, Haddish appeared to get the hint, tweeting, “I Love Beyonce part! Everything she said rang so real to me. Just know I will sign A NDA any day For Beyoncé.”

“But also know this I will fight for Beyoncé. I Love that woman she is a Gift from God,” she tweeted.

But in Haddish’s GQ interview, she gives more details on the incident, even claiming Beyonce said the actress in question was on drugs.

“Near the end of the party,” Haddish said of her run-in with Beyoncé. “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 (expletive) is on drugs. She not even drunk. The (expletive) is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.’”

It was then when Haddish said Beyonce told her to have fun and she was able to get a selfie with the singer.

“She was like, ‘No, have fun, Tiffany,’ and I said, ‘I’m only going to have fun if you take a selfie with me,’” Haddish told Vulture.

Beyoncé’s representative, however, could not corroborate Haddish’s story.

“I absolutely cannot comment on any of this, as I have no knowledge,” Yvette Noel-Schure told GQ.
