Tiffany Haddish celebrated her 40th birthday on Tuesday, Dec. 3, by throwing herself a belated bat mitzvah. Her invited guests included rumored boyfriend, rapper Common. The Girls Trip actress and the popular rap star have been inseparable since Common, 47, dumped his political analyst girlfriend Angela Rye, 40, back in September.
A bat mitzvah is Hebrew for "daughter of commandment," when 12-year-old Jewish girls mature to adulthood. Haddish was inspired by her father's background as an Eritrean Jew for the title of her new stand-up comedy show, Black Mitzvah, which debuted on Netflix. She decided to celebrate the launch of her new comedy show at the party - which also doubled as a traditional coming-of-age bash.
A Rabbi presided over the bat mitzvah ceremony. When a Jewish girl turns 12, she assumes the rights and responsibilities of a Jewish adult. But Haddish discovered her religious heritage later in life, so she decided to make her 40th birthday a celebration to remember.
Haddish even took part in a traditional Hora dance. She was raised into the air on a chair, and sang along to Israeli folk song, "Hava Nagila".
Celebrity guests included (L-R) Niko Khalé, his baby mama Keyshia Cole; Jessica Gadsden and Charlamagne tha God. Ironically, the party took Haddish back to her entertainment roots as she used to work as an "energy producer" at bar and bat mitzvahs at the very start of her career.
Haddish's good friend, comedian and cross-dresser Flame Monroe embraced Haddish at her Black Mitzvah celebration at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. Monroe describes himself as both a drag queen and "comedian who happens to be transgender".
The father-of-two caused controversy when he appeared as a guest on NYC's Power 105.1 The Breakfast Club radio show and insisted "there ain't no women with penises." Click here to watch the interview.
