Tiffany Haddish has taken Hollywood by storm since her rise to stardom in the 2017 hit film Girls Trip, and we love her for spilling celebrity gossip and keeping her publicist on her toes. From giving us an inside look into the dramatic biting of Beyoncé to calling out Drake for standing her up on a date, Haddish is Hollywood’s version of your neighborhood gossip.
Here is a look at some of Haddish’s moments where her “spilling of the tea” may have made too much of a splash:
Telling Leonardo DiCaprio She Wanted to Have Sex With Him
Haddish has never been quiet about her love for Leonardo DiCaprio, and she can’t contain her attraction to him, even when he is right next to her. So much so, that she proposed a hookup. “Yeah, I met him at a party two, three months ago, and I asked him if he’d let me hit that,” Haddish told The Hollywood Reporter. A shocked DiCaprio responded, “Tiffany, you’re so funny,” and Haddish reinforced, “I’m serious,” to which DiCaprio tried to stall. “I mean, I’d do it, but…’” Tiffany continued to press the topic, inquiring, “Come on, wasn’t you in a squad? The choochie squad or something?”
Haddish didn’t stop there, telling him, “My only stipulation: I wanna do it with you as your character in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, ’cause I feel like that performance deserves a real reward and that reward is this,” to which Haddish gestured to her body. DiCaprio then took the conversation into how he got into the role, to which Haddish interrupted, saying, “Mhmm, all that’s good. I just need to know, when’s this gonna happen?”
Needless to say, we’re not aware that this hookup ever ended up happening.
2. Telling the Whole World the Inside Scoop on the Infamous ‘Beyoncé Bite’
In true Tiffany fashion, when she told the story of an actress biting Beyoncé earlier this year, she initially refused to give any information on the incident. That didn’t last long: She ended up caving and detailing her eyewitness account of the event. Haddish sat down with GQ, spilling that “Beyoncé stormed away, went up to JAY-Z and was like, ‘Jay! Come here! This bitch–’ and snatched him. They went to the back of the room. I was like, ‘What just happened?’ And Beyoncé’s friend walked up and was like, ‘Can you believe this bitch just bit Beyoncé?’”
Tiffany had to get the lowdown and of course went right up to Beyoncé to get the scoop. “Near the end of the party, Beyoncé’s at the bar, so I said to Beyoncé, ‘Did she really bite you?’ She was like, ‘Yeah.’ I was like, ‘She gonna get her ass beat tonight,’ and 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.’”
Haddish finally confirmed to THR that the biter in question was actress Sanaa Lathan, who initially denied the rumor.
3. Outing Drake for Standing Her Up on a Date
Earlier this week, Haddish sat down with Girls Trip co-star Jada Pinkett Smith to talk about relationships on Smith’s Facebook Watch series. Haddish revealed that she and Drake were texting buddies, swapping messages about work and then later making dinner plans. After getting a nice dress and a waxing appointment, she sent him a text saying, “So what time are you heading out? Are you sending a car, like where we going?” to which Drake responded, “Oh man, my bad, family emergency. I’m in Canada right now.”
Haddish can joke about it now, but admits, “I could have made $100,000, but I was trying to see what that D do. But all right!”
4. Persuading Brad Pitt in an Elevator to Consider Her for a Hookup
Tiffany Haddish caught up with Kelly Ripa backstage at the Oscars for an interview with Live With Kelly and Ryan, and Haddish revealed she took the opportunity to hit on Brad Pitt in an elevator. Fresh off of the elevator conversation, Haddish told Ripa, “I just met Brad Pitt in the elevator,” later saying that Pitt agreed to the terms that “if in one year he’s single and I’m single, we are gonna do it. So, y’all know what that means!” Haddish then contemplated the agreement, saying, “but he got seven kids, I don’t know if I could get with someone that got that many kids.” Guess we’ll have to wait until March 2019 to see if this comes to fruition.
5. She Got (Gross) Revenge on Her Ex
Haddish detailed in her 2017 memoir The Last Black Unicorn why you don’t want to treat her wrong if you’re in a relationship with her. Here’s why: Haddish revealed she got revenge on an ex who had cheated on her and filmed a sex tape with another woman. Haddish says she pretended she wanted to get back together with him and went over to his house and gave him back his Air Jordans. Except, there was a surprise in the shoes. She had defecated in the shoes. As if that wasn’t enough, she had a bootlegger slice the sex tape footage and sent it to members of his family. Ouch.
6. Flirting with Stephen Colbert on Live Television
Back in August, Haddish appeared on the Late Show with host Stephen Colbert, and she got some incorrect flirtatious vibes from him. Haddish later told The Hollywood Reporter, “I was like, ‘Ohhh, he’s into me, maybe I’m gonna date him.’ That’s what I was thinking, and near the end of the interview, when I saw that ring [on his finger], I don’t know if you could see my whole body language change, but it did. ‘Cause I really thought he was in there. I thought, ‘Oh, we’re gonna hang out. I might get to date this dude. I like him. OK.’”
