So in case you missed it, it was recently revealed someone bit Beyoncé’s face (or did they?) at a party in December 2017. Since comedian Tiffany Haddish first broke the story, it’s spread like wildfire, but with once crucial piece of information missing: the identity of the alleged biter.
I can’t believe I’m gonna die not knowing who bit Beyoncé

Some say they know who did it but aren’t telling. Others say it didn’t happen at all. Somewhere along the way, Haddish signed a non-disclosure agreement.
And now, adding his voice to the chorus of people who know but aren’t telling, is John Legend.
The subject came up when Legend appeared on Ellen recently to promote his role in the latest incarnation of Jesus Christ Superstar — because, face it, even when musicians show up to promote their own careers, conversations must always bend towards Beyoncé.
Legend said that he and wife Chrissy Teigen know the identity of the face-biter but cannot reveal anything.
“We weren’t there, first of all,” he said. “But we know people who were there, and they know who it was. We know who it was and we’re not talking about it, though.”
Staying silent is probably a wise move, as crossing Beyoncé and her retinue can make life difficult. Haddish says she signed her NDA after she wanted to get into Bey and Jay-Z’s Oscars after-party but was told she had to “sign some paperwork” first.
The way she told it, once she acquiesced, DJ Kid Capri called it out to the whole party. “He gets on the microphone,” Haddish told Ebony, “‘BEYONCE!, BEYONCE! TIFFANY HADDISH IS IN THE BUILDING, AND SHE’S READY TO SIGN THAT NON-DISCLOSURE FORM, CUZ SHE READY TO PARRRTAYYYYYYY!!!’”
Haddish concluded the story with a demonstration of her ability to stay zip-lipped: “Beyoncé came up to me, and that’s all I can say about the party.”
While John Legend will probably never reveal who bit Beyonce, he did note that his daughter had said the name “Beyoncé” for the first time recently — an important step in every young life.
“I feel like I should write it down in her baby book,” he said.
