Rihanna, Jay Z, and Beyonce go back, like, waaaayy back. The three haven’t always been close friends since they rose to prominence, but it should come as no surprise that Rihanna feels loyalty for both Jay Z and Beyonce when it comes to the whole cheating scandal that has thrown the world into a frenzy over the last few days.
“Rihanna loves Beyonce and respects her as a woman, friend and an artist. The same goes for Jay. He’s been nothing but loyal to Rihanna over the years and a true gentleman and she thinks the fans are giving him a raw deal over Lemonade,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Well, she is right about fans going crazy over the cheating rumors.
Because ever since Beyonce dropped Lemonade, the only thing people are asking is who did Jay Z allegedly cheat with? So Rihanna has good reason to be worried about Jay Z, but as the saying goes, he made his bed — now he must lie in it.
The internet has been buzzing ever since Beyonce’s HBO special on April 23. Rihanna does have a pretty tight relationship with both Beyonce and Jay Z, and if she doesn’t think he’s a cheater, then there may be some weight behind her opinions. Maybe the “Becky with the good hair” lyric was simply some form of creative expression?
Either way, Rihanna is not buying into the whole cheating scandal. “Ri loves that man to pieces and doesn’t believe he has it in him to cheat. He’s a family man, who loves his wife and that beautiful girl of his,” says the source. “Like everybody else, Rihanna’s an outsider looking in. And from her vantage point, she’d love a man like Jay Z in her life. He’s the boss of all bosses; mature, educated and very suave. She places him on a pedestal and believes he’s committed to Bey.”
Sadly, Rihanna is probably the only one still holding onto hope. At least if the rumors are true, Bey and Jay have moved on and are staying strong together.
