Solange Knowles’ reputation isn’t the only one that’s taken a hit after the shocking video of her attacking brother-in-law Jay Z was leaked on May 12. People have also been buzzing about Rachel Roy’s role in elevator smackdown, and now the fashion designer is worried that it could have a devastating impact on her career, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Rachel Roy boldly tweeted a thinly veiled Jay Z reference on May 15, suggesting that she doesn’t give a hoot what the world may think about her “too close” relationship with the rapper, or her long-standing feud with Beyonce‘s sister Solange Knowles. But now HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY tell you how Rachel really feels about the situation. Read on.
Rachel Roy’s Role In Elevator Attack: She’s Worried Fight Will Ruin Her Career
Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange tried to reassure fans that their family was alright on May 15 by issuing a joint statement about the elevator attack, and perhaps Rachel should do the same thing if she wants to save her good name.
“She’s worried this story could ruin her career and hurt her socially,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Unfortunately, we think Rachel could be right about that. That said, if she quickly does some damage control — and cuts out the Jay Z tweets — we think she’ll come out of this whole thing okay.
Rachel Roy Disses Solange Knowles In New Jay Z Tweet
Solange violently lashed out at Jay Z following a Met Ball after-party at the Standard Hotel on May 5 because she felt that his relationship with Rachel was “too close for comfort,” a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
And Rachel didn’t help the situation by referencing Jay Z in a tweet on May 14! She totally stirred the pot when she tweeted lyrics from Jay’s song, “Beach Is Better,” which appeared on his last album, Magna Carta Holy Grail. Rachel’s tweet reads: “The beach is better! Escape with RRR’s Summer ’14 video http://t.co/CqHIlScIEo.”
It may not seem like a big deal, but given Rachel’s much buzzed-about connection to Solange and Jay Z’s family feud, she might want to steer clear of sending out any more Hov-related messages!
HollywoodLifers, has YOUR opinion of Rachel changed for the worse since the elevator attack? Do you think she should release a statement about her role in the incident? Let us know.
