Who Bit Beyoncé? These Are The Prime Suspects

The news week has been dominated by a very pressing question: who bit Beyoncé?!

In a GQ profile published online on Monday, Tiffany Haddish alleged that an unspecified actor bit (yes, BIT) Queen Bey's face at a star-studded event last December.

The event in question was an after-party following a Jay-Z concert in Inglewood. The Cut investigated the matter further and determined a roster of celebs in attendance: Rihanna, James Franco, French Montana, Queen Latifah, G-Eazy, Diddy, Sara Foster, Jen Meyer, and Sanaa Lathan. 

Vulture narrowed its pool of suspects to Foster and Lathan, reasoning that the other actresses at the party (Rihanna and Queen Latifah) were friends of Bey’s, and therefore not as likely to bite.

Chrissy Teigen weighed in on the matter as well with a theory of her own:

She later uncovered the truth and tweeted that her initial assumption was wrong.

This is far from the only rumor circulating on the matter. Scroll down below for a detailed presentation and analysis of every possible perp.

Sanaa Lathan

Vulture allegedly received an anonymous tip from someone claiming to have heard the story during Haddish’s comedy set in Jacksonville, Florida this past January. “During her standup she gave more hints that might be helpful to figuring this out, such as the actress who bit Beyoncé was an actress who dated French Montana last summer.”

While the veracity of this comment is unknown, Lathan has, in fact, been linked to French Montana.

Addressing bitegate, Lathan denied the allegations with a coy tweet:

Sara Foster

This other suspect also denied the rumour, posting an email to her publicist in which she’s asked for comment on the matter. “Flattering that anyone thinks I could get this close to Beyoncé,” she joked.

 

Taraji P. Henson

The Empire star’s name was briefly thrown into the ring, but Haddish quickly came to her defense.

Lena Dunham

Although there’s really no proof that Dunham did it (or was even at the party), internet sleuths have drawn attention to a potentially suspicious tweet she wrote just prior to the release of Haddish’s GQ profile.

Jennifer Lawrence

J. Law appears to have been in New York at the time— her publicist has already discounted her from the roundup.  

Amy Schumer

While there’s no direct evidence yet, the Trainwreck star does have a history of making strange and counterintuitive gestures in the face (pun intended) of major celebrity ...

 

Gwyneth Paltrow

The Goop goddess is known to be close with the Carter fam, which would make sense since Beyoncé told Haddish that the actress in question is “not like that all the time”—indicating she knows the biter somewhat well. Before Chrissy knew the identity of the biter, she dispelled the Gwyneth rumour. However, once she did find out, she said the perpetrator was someone she “*never* would have guessed.”
