*Tiffany Haddish has suffered a rare setback on her meteoric rise to stardom that has no signs of slowing down.

As the premiere of her new show “The Last O.G.” gave TBS is highest ratings for an original debut in its history, her “virtual” date with Brad Pitt – albeit imaginary – was pretty much an epic fail.

The comedian and “Girls Trip” star stopped by “The Tonight Show” on Friday and role-played how the date with Pitt might go after she previously revealed news of their real life plan to attend the Oscars together in 2019 if both are still single.

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon helped Haddish to visualize this hypothetical date after listening to the actress recall that “pre-Oscars party” elevator encounter with Pitt. She had been “talking out loud in the elevator” to Elizabeth Perkins and her husband, Julio Macat, about finding herself a man that looks at her the way they look at each other.

Pitt had been standing behind her, prompting Macat to remark, “Man, I hope we don’t get caught in this elevator.”

“There’s going to be some pretty-ass babies in this elevator if we do,” Haddish responded. Pitt had supposedly even said they could “see what happens” if they both ended up single at the same time. But then the comedienne “did some research” and realized “he got a gang of kids.”

“I can’t do it,” she said. “I wanna be baby mamma No. 1. but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t eat dinner with him and maybe play around. But I wanna be No. 1.”

Fallon then took things a step further by covering his face with a cutout Pitt mask and acting out this date. In the car on their way to dinner, Haddish asked Pitt “how’s Angie [Jolie] doing?,” requested they go to dinner in South Central, and remarked how nice he smelled. He, in turn, said he would turn around and drop her back off.

“F— you, Brad!” she exclaimed. “I spent all this money on makeup and hair and this cute dress and you’re just gonna drop me off?!”
