AceShowbiz - Is Tiffany Haddish dating Giancarlo Stanton? That's what the comedienne was saying when stopping by "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Wednesday night, August 7, before actually revealing that it was part of her plan to get the baseball athlete interested in her.
Talking to host Stephen Colbert, Tiffany said that she recently received the advice from John Mayer, who told her to say in interviews that she had been seeing the person she had a crush on so news outlets would run side-by-side photos of her and her crush. With that, she might be getting the attention of her crush and perhaps generating a meeting.
She said of the plan, "The world will know that I like this person, I will know that I like this person, and it will be in his subconscious and he will attract me to him." The "Girls Trip" star then went on declaring, "I've been seeing number 27 from the New York Yankees, Giancarlo Stanton," before claiming that the athlete is her "weighted blanket."
Elsewhere in the interview, Tiffany also said of Giancarlo, "I've been seeing him! I've been seeing him at baseball games... on Instagram ...on Twitter... I've been seeing him in my dreams a lot." When Stephen noted that Giancarlo is "6'4", 250 pounds," the "Night School" star exclaimed, "That's what I'm talking about somebody to burp me!" Pretending to hold a baby, she added, "I just want him to pick me up and go like this, 'It's going to be OK Tiffany. Shh. Shh. Shh."
Tiffany was previously married to William Steward, from whom she filed for divorce twice. Last year, she was reported to be dating NYC socialite Unik Ernest. According to sources, the two were "quietly" seeing each other since their first meeting at the premiere for "Solo: A Star Wars Story". This rumor, however, had never been confirmed.
