The "Girls Trip" star also opens up about what she spends her money on and which household chemical she's been drinking.

Tiffany Haddish's Beyoncé story just got juicier.

While speaking to GQ for a profile published Monday, the comedian spilled even more tea about witnessing an unnamed "actress" getting into conflict with the "Lemonade" singer at a party after a Jay-Z concert last December. Haddish previously said the confrontation was sparked by the woman touching Jay-Z's chest, and now the "Girls Trip" star has said the actress went as far as to bite Beyonce in the face.

"There was this actress there that's just, like, doing the mostest," Haddish said. "She bit Beyoncé in the face."

GQ noted Haddish declined to name the actress and Beyoncé's rep denied any knowledge of the situation.

"So 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," Haddish explained. "I was like, 'What just happened?' And Beyoncé's friend walked up and was like, 'Can you believe this bitch just bit Beyoncé?'"

"A lot of things happened," Haddish added, proceeding to vaguely explain her own conflict with the actress, who she almost went toe-to-toe with herself before Beyoncé calmed her down -- which as we already know, led to that Instagram selfie of the two.

"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,'" Haddish said. "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.'"

But that's not all Haddish had to say in her first GQ profile. Here are four more juicy nuggets for your reading pleasure.

She's Not About to Boycott Netflix

After a challenging childhood that included stints in foster care, and three bouts with homelessness, Haddish is very aware of the money she makes, and grateful for every dollar. As such, she has absolutely no interest in supporting comedian Mo'Nique's call for a boycott of Netflix over "gender bias and color bias." Mo'Nique claimed this based on the figure she was offered for a comedy special, which was a fraction of what Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Amy Schumer made.

"My business run different than her business," says Haddish. "I'm looking at how [Netflix has] opened up so many opportunities for black females and comedy. When my people are dying, that's when you gonna catch me protesting. I'm not gonna protest because somebody got offered not the amount of money they wanted to get offered. If you don't like what they're offering you, just no longer do business with them. If I protest Netflix, what about all the black shows that are on there? What about all the other actors that are working on there? All the Indians, the Hispanics, the Asians.

She also pointed out that her former show, "The Carmichael Show," is streaming on Netflix after three seasons on NBC. "I play 'Carmichael Show' on a repeating basis," Haddish joked. "I just turn it on and let it play. I'm like, 'Hey, let's collect that residual check.'"

Her Money Goes to Caring for Her Mother

While Haddish has been fearless when talking about the difficulties of her childhood, which she detailed extensively in her memoir, "The Last Black Unicorn," she's played her cards a lot closer to her chest when it comes to her personal life now. She finally opened up a bit about it with GQ, revealing that her personal life is all about family these days.

"I just got my mom out the mental institution," she revealed. As detailed in her memoir, her mother suffered a traumatic brain injury when Haddish was eight, and she's never fully recovered from it. "Literally all my money goes into my grandmother and my mother. I got a two-bedroom apartment and moved my sister in so she could be monitoring [our mom]. I got nurses for my mom. My grandma bumped her head and had to have her brain drained, and she's dealing with Alzheimer's. I've got meal services coming to the house for her and for my mom."

That food service doesn't come cheap, either, as it was based on recommendations from big stars "like Barbra Streisand, Rosanna Arquette, all these really famous people," Haddish said. "When you order three meals a day, and they're all organic, all natural, good food, that shit is expensive as f-ck." Expensive as in $500 per week per person.

She Drinks Turpentine for "Health Benefits"

Perhaps the most disconcerting portion of the interview -- at least for the woman conducting it -- came when Haddish revealed that she drinks turpentine for health reasons (note: do not do this). She tried to assert that this came from the days of slavery, but ultimately it was something she saw on a YouTube video.

She said that after her first dose, "everything just felt so much better, clarity-wise." When the interviewer suggested she was high from drinking poison, Haddish laughed, "But I was killing the game onstage! My thought patterns was coming quick, quick, quick. Girl, you just look it up. Just do the research."

The reporter said she did just that, sending Haddish information from the U.S. National Library of Medicine about the dangers of ingesting turpentine, but even that didn't sway the comedian. "The government wrote it," Haddish said simply.

She's Still Working on Her Literacy

Another thing Haddish opened up about in her memoir is her literacy, which she said hovered at around a first- or second-grade level until she was 16 years old. "I do have esteem issues when it comes to reading and writing," she admitted. "I always feel kind of self-conscious about letting people read something that I wrote, because the last thing I wanna hear is 'You spelled everything wrong.'"

The "Girls Trip" star notably mispronounced several names while announcing the Oscars winners alongside Andy Serkis a few months back. "That's my natural reading skills right there,” she said. "I felt so bad. 'Cause I have feelings." The stars and the Academy didn't have any problem with it, as they found her natural charm and joy so intoxicating she was asked if she'd be willing to do it again in the future.
