Chrissy Teigen Won’t Reveal #WhoBitBeyonce
“It’s not who I thought, I will say,” the model turned author said on Tuesday's Today show. “The problem is I love everybody involved so I’m like, 'zip.' You know I share everything. It’s you guys! I would definitely tell you. It’s so hard.”
Her comments come after Tiffany Haddish launched an internet-wide manhunt for the perpetrator behind the bite, a yet-to-be disclosed actress who came after Queen B during a December party. According to Haddish, who's slowly divulged the details of the night over the span of several weeks, the actress was flirting with Jay-Z when Beyoncé intervened, only to be met with a direct bite to the face.
Haddish said she wanted to fight the woman, but that Bey talked her down, telling GQ: "'She was like, Tiffany, no. Don’t do that. That bitch is on drugs. She not even drunk. The bitch is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.’”
After the story broke on Monday (March 27), Vulture did some important investigative work and narrowed the suspects down to two names: 90210 alum Sara Foster and Love & Basketball star Sanaa Lathan, both of whom later shot down the rumors.
"Flattering that anyone thinks I could get this close to Beyoncé," Foster wrote on Instagram, while Lathan tweeted: "Y'all are funny. Under no circumstances did I bite Beyonce and if I did it would’ve been a love bite."
Despite the denial, TMZ has since claimed it was, in fact, Lathan, according to multiple unnamed sources. One person explained it was "playful and noninvasive," not aggressive, but still caught Beyoncé off guard.
Teigen, for her part, has been very active in the search for the Beyoncé Biter™, first tweeting she could not "leave this planet without knowing who bit Beyoncé in the face" and that she could "only think of one person" who would do such a thing, and she was "the worst."
The Lip Sync Battle host has, however, since been informed of the actress's identity, but won't say who it is aside from that it's not who she initially thought, and that she had to (jokingly) check with her husband, John Legend, to make sure it hadn't actually been her.
“Listen, I think we’ve all done things under the influence," Teigen said on Today. "If I had a dollar for every time that I had a few glasses of wine or something and would have done something like that? Oh man, very rich."
That may be true, Chrissy, but the world needs answers!!! Someone have mercy on us and put this story to rest.
