Rachel Roy is setting the record straight! After being accused of having an affair with Jay Z, the designer has released a statement defending herself against hateful Beyonce fans — and, yes, she’s denied being ‘Becky With The Good Hair.’
So who IS Becky With The Good Hair?! Rachel Roy, 42, has fired back against rumors that she’s the alleged “other woman” on Beyonce’s album Lemonade, and she’s using it as an opportunity to take a stand against cyber-bullying. You hear that, Beyhive?!
“I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that,” Rachel said in a statement. “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors. Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughter in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother — and I know many mothers would agree — I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable. I would hope that the media sees the real issue here — the issue of cyber bullying — and how it should not be tolerated by anyone.”
In case you haven’t been following this story, Bey shocked fans by referencing a man being unfaithful numerous times on her album Lemonade, leading to speculation that Jay Z, 46, had cheated. In one particular song, she calls out a specific woman she refers to as “Becky With The Good Hair,” and when Rachel posted an Instagram mentioning her good hair, fans immediately wondered if she was the woman in question.
Rachel and Jay have been accused of getting too close in the past, and, as we previously reported their alleged relationship is what caused Solange Knowles to attack the rapper at the 2014 Met Ball.
But now that she’s shot all this down, we’re back to square one, wondering who exactly Becky is. Rita Ora, 25, has also come into question, as fans pointed out she once wore a ‘J’ necklace and lemon bra in an Instagram photo, but for now, Bey and Jay are staying tight-lipped on the whole thing!
Do you believe Rachel’s denial, HollywoodLifers?
