After Tiffany Haddishrevealed to GQ that the night that she met Beyoncé an unnamed actress who was "doing the mostest" bit Queen Bey in her face, Twitter has been determined to unmask the culprit. Though Love and Basketball star Sanaa Lathan was one of social media's first suspects, the actress denied it was her, tweeting, "Y’all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyoncé and if I did it would’ve been a love bite."
However, according to some TMZ sources, it actually was her. It allegedly went down when Lathan “was talking to JAY-Z in a way that made Beyoncé uncomfortable” leading the mother of three to confront Lathan, who “brushed off any insinuation of inappropriate conduct and then gave her a jokey bite.” The source also insisted that the incident was "playful and noninvasive but still caught Beyoncé off guard."
Twitter's other major suspect was actress Sara Foster, who was also reportedly at the party back in December. However, Foster poked fun at the rumor on Instagram, noting that it was "flattering that anyone thinks I could get this close to Beyoncé." Still, she jokingly confessed to the deed, which led her sister, Erin, to posit that it was Foster who started the rumor about herself.

The always outspoken model, cookbook author and hardcore Beyoncé fan teased that she had an idea of who may have bitten the Queen at the party … but first she had to make sure that she herself wasn't a suspect. "You know how much s— I have said and done to famous people??" Teigen wrote on Twitter. "I had to verify with [husband John Legend] it wasn’t *me*"
Teigen did however reveal that she knows who, indeed, bit Beyoncé, and though she's not spilling, she noted that it's someone she "never would have guessed." After someone named Paltrow in response, Teigen was quick to clarify, "No, I love her!" which led many to take her name off the list of potential suspects.
Despite sending the Internet into a frenzy in the first place, Haddish has kept mum about who the biting actress actually is. However, she did weigh in just once on Twitter, after an outlet accused Taraji P. Henson. "No, it wasn't," Haddish curtly responded … and then said not a peep more.
Since nobody can truly be ruled out as a suspect in the greatest mystery of our time, the Huffington Post reached out to Aniston's publicist in order to find out if it was possible that Rachel Green had bitten Queen Bey. I have no idea what this means,” her spokesperson responded, adding, "Why in the world would you think Jennifer Aniston would do such a thing?"
Though Rih was reportedly spotted at the party that night — the event was an after-party for one of JAYZ's 4:44 Tour shows — she was quickly ruled off of the list of potential suspects by the Internet at large. Why? Because although Rihanna has appeared in a few movies, she's much more well-known as a singer, which makes it highly unlikely that Haddish could have been talking about her. Phew.
Another day, another denial: On Wednesday, the Girls creator took to Twitter to clear her name, after some social media users floated the idea that it may have been Dunham who bit Beyoncé that night. “As the patron saint of ‘She would do that…’ I didn’t,” Dunham tweeted, declaring her innocence.
