Who bit Beyoncé? Here’s a list of all the suspects and their responses


“Who bit Beyoncé?” is the question everyone’s asking this week and definitely the greatest pop culture mystery in recent memory.

Fans have been trying to figure out the identity of Beyoncé‘s mystery biter ever since Tiffany Haddish claimed earlier this week that an actress “bit Beyoncé in the face” while on drugs at a party in December.

Here’s a list of all the names people have been speculating about and what they’ve had to say in response.

Lena Dunham


Bookies have labelled Lena Dunham as the odds-on favourite. But, despite admitting that she does seem like someone who “would do that”, the Girls star has taken to Twitter to deny that it was her.

Jennifer Aniston

A spokesperson for the Friends icon responded to the “absurd” speculation, asking the Huffington Post: “Why in the world would you think Jennifer Aniston would do such a thing?”

Jennifer Lawrence

Asked by Huff Post if Lawrence could be ruled out, a representative replied: “Yes remove her please.”

Natalie Portman

Huffington Post also say they’ve been “informed we can cross [Portman] off the list.”

Gwyneth Paltrow

Paltrow hasn’t actually responded directly, but Chrissy Teigen – who claims to know who did bite Beyoncé – has rushed to her defence.


Taraji P Henson

Likewise, Haddish has ruled out Taraji P Henson on her behalf.

Kathy Griffin

She may be comfortable posing with the severed head of Donald Trump, but Griffin says she would “never take on Beyoncé or the Beyhive.”

Sara Foster

An article by The Cut speculated that it could have been 90210 star Foster. Her response: “Flattering that anyone thinks I could get this close to Beyoncé.”

Jodie Foster

Despite Sara Foster being mentioned by the Cut piece, Jodie Foster’s spokesperson had to defend her own client, pointing out: “The article says Sara Foster — NOT Jodie Foster.”

Frances McDormand

McDormand’s representative’s response to Huffington Post was simply: “Seriously!?”

Kathy Bates

A rep for the American Horror Story star had “no clue” about any alleged incident.

Julie Andrews

Like Bates’ rep, a spokesperson for Andrew had “no idea what you are talking about” when asked by the Huffington Post.

Amy Adams

“Hahaha, NO,” Amy Adams’ spokesperson wrote back to the Huff Post, adding that it was “so funny that you would ask if Amy Adams did this?”

Charlotte McKinney

It couldn’t be Baywatch reboot star McKinney because she “didn’t even attend the after-party,” her rep claims.

Sanaa Lathan

The Best Man star Lathan says she didn’t bit Beyoncé. But had she, it would have been a “love bite”.

Queen Latifah

Latifah’s rep had “no comment”.

Shirley MacLaine

A spokesperson for MacLaine told Huff Post: “No, Shirley did not bite anything. She’s 83 years old, for God’s sake.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar

The Buffy star is someone who has “admitted” that she was the one to bite Bey, but appears to have been entirely kidding.
