Tiffany Haddish revealed the list of lavish gifts she received from celebrity guests who attended her bat mitzvah ceremony last year. The most extravagant gifts came from Beyonce's mom, Tina Lawson, and singer Barbara Streisand.

During an appearance on Monday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Girls Trip star dished about how she studied the faith before her star-studded bat mitzvah.

She said Tina Lawson gave her a beautiful Bible. "Ms. Tina gave me the most beautiful Bible with this cross on it and everything, and I was like, is she trying to say, 'Hey! You know you black, right?"

Kimmel, 52, who is Catholic, teased Haddish. "Beyonce's mother sent you a Bible with a crucifix on it for your bat mitzvah?"

"But it had diamonds on the crucifix, though," Haddish said. "So, I read from that and the Torah every day. I read from both. They start out the same."

Even though Streisand couldn't be there in person, she sent Haddish a diamond necklace with a Jewish star on it.

"I'm embarrassed because I got you the same present, except without diamonds in it," Kimmel said.

Haddish joked, "Yeah, you did. No diamonds. But Imma wear it! Imma wear it when I work out and go to places where I don't want people to feel like I'm flossing'."

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.

The Internet is convinced that emotionally unavailable rapper Common is dating comic actor Tiffany Haddish. They say Common kicked Angeles Rye to the curb after taking her back twice.

The 47-year-old rapper/actor and then-39-year-old political analyst broke up in March of last year after a rocky relationship. They both released statements saying they remained friends.

But they got back together in May only to part ways again before reuniting in August. Now it seems they are done for good. According to the gossipmongers on message board Lipstick Alley, he dumped Angela in September to pursue Tiffany, a divorcee with a well-documented history of emotional and mental problems.

In between his multiple breakups with Angela, Common sought counseling from unlicensed therapist Michelle Obama.

He said she told him that his emotional issues stems from his ordeal as a child when he was molested by an uncle.

The abuse caused him to question his own sexuality which made it difficult for him to relate to women. Particularly so-called "strong, independent women" like Angela, who has personality issues of her own.

According to the sleuths on Lipstick Alley, Common skipped Angela's 40th birthday party in October. A few days later he was spotted taking Selfies with Tiffany backstage at the Blue Note Jazz Club. He recently flew to the West Coast to celebrate Tiffany's 40th birthday.

Update: her good friend said that when common went on tour in sept he kinda got distant. stopped calling, etc. when he came back he just sat her down and told her that they just didn't have it. he wasn't feeling the chemistry needed to go forward. same friend said common was super nice and cool when he hung out with her, but that they didn't have any romantic chemistry. seemed more like a guy she was kicking it with and not a couple. i've heard a few people say that-- they never acted or seemed like a couple. just no spark between them, no affection, and apparently no love because he let her know he just wasn't in love with her like that.

He missed Angela's 40th but flew to LA with Tiffany Haddish to celebrate hers. I'm surprised TMZ didn't catch them leaving NYC and arriving at LAX at the same time. They've been glued to the hip since he got back on tour. Weren't they rumored to be together after he and Angela broke up the first time?

UPDATE: one of tiffany's party guests-- a poster artists she hired for the part-- just replied on IG. confirmed she and common are def dating. said he was in LA on business as well as for her bday party.

 

Questions: 1. Considering their past histories of emotional unavailability, do you think Common and Tiffany make a good couple?

2. How long do you think they will last before he moves on to the next emotionally damaged Hollywood starlet?
