Sanaa Lathan responds to reports that she bit Beyoncé

'Family Guy' star describes rumours as "absurd" and "crazy"

Sanaa Lathan has denied that she was Beyoncé‘s mystery biter.

Back in March, Tiffany Haddish claimed that an actress “bit Beyoncé in the face” while on drugs at a party that she attended.

Haddish’s comments sparked speculation over who the individual could be, with fingers pointing at numerous potential suspects including Lena Dunham, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lawrence and Natalie Portman.

Sources later reported that Lathan was the culprit, despite her tweeting at the time: “Y’all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyonce and if I did it would’ve been a love bite”.


Now, Family Guy star Lathan has addressed the reports in a new interview, telling Health magazine: “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 rumours about me,” Lathan added. “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.”

The saga started when Tiffany Haddish told GQ: “There was this actress there that’s just, like, doing the mostest… She bit Beyoncé in the face.” 

Haddish went on to explain that Beyoncé later said of the biter:  “That bitch is on drugs. She not even drunk… She’s not like that all the time.”
