Back in March, Sanaa Lathan suddenly found herself with a bee target on her back after Tiffany Haddish told a story about a mysterious famous actress who allegedly bit Beyoncé’s face at a party. Tiffany couldn’t say who it was, thanks to Beyoncé’s love of a tight NDA. Tiffany would only say that the actress was trying to get wth Jay-Z, and that the biting culprit was “on drugs.” The theory with the most alleged evidence backing it up was that the biter was Sanaa Lathan.
At the time, Sanaa denied it, and said if there was any bite it was a “love bite.” Sanaa recently spoke about it with Health, and you can throw that love bite alibi out the window, because she says her involvement is a big old lie.
Sanaa says that social media is to blame for how fast she was dragged into the Beyoncé biting rumor. She adds that if she was still in her 20s, she might be bothered, but 46-year-old Sanaa really couldn’t care less.
“Yeah, it blew up. And I think it’s the most absurd thing I’ve ever been involved with. Thank God I’ve been in this business for 20 years and have had so many rumors about me. They used to devastate me in my 20s, but in order to survive in this business, you just have to let it roll. I adore Beyoncé. I would never do anything malicious like that – to her, or to anyone. It’s so bizarre…It’s so crazy.”
Sanaa swears she’d never go Lestat on Beyoncé’s face. Fine, I’ll believe her. Maybe she didn’t. But she better hope she never comes face-to-face with Tiffany Haddish while a camera is close by. Because those NDAs only specify that you can’t talk about what you did or saw. I don’t think they have any stipulations about implied body language. Tiffany has proven she’s one of the most loyal soldiers in the Beyhive. So she’s not going to break the NDA with her words. But if Sanaa isn’t telling the truth, there’s no way Tiffany won’t rat Sanaa out with the unofficial symbol of “You know what you did,” which is two hands on hips and a judgmental look.
