Rachel Roy (no, not the famous chef who nails those 30-minute meals) is coming forward after being accused of having an affair with Jay Z in the release of Beyoncé’s visual album, "LEMONADE," where the songstress sings openly about adultery.
During the 'Apathy' portion of her HBO special, Queen Bey dropped the lyric, "He better call Becky with the good hair," in the song "Sorry." This was then followed by a now-deleted Instagram selfie posted by Roy, a 42-year-old fashion designer, that was captioned "Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens."
And with that, Roy became public enemy number one.
Beyoncé fans, known as the Beyhive, began targeting not only Roy, but also her 16-year-old daughter on Instagram in a quest to pinpoint if she truly is Becky. And their wrath was heavily felt by the family, forcing Roy to cancel an appearance on Monday due to a "personal emergency."
After sending a tweet stating her "respect" for "love, marriages, families and strength," Roy released a statement on Tuesday addressing cyberbullying and her denial of being "Becky with the Good Hair":
"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. 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 daughters 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."
Sure, a great statement in regards to bullying, but unfortunately for Rachel, whose Instagram is now set to private, the damage seems to be done.
And Roy isn't the only one the Beyhive is speculating as Becky — Rita Ora is also under fire after stepping out in a $1,890 Gucci silk skirt and matching $1,390 blouse that Bey wore in her "Formation" video. Ora then took to Snapchat to share an image of herself sporting a lemon bralette and a pendant necklace that oddly looks like like letter 'J.'
Well, it looks like the investigation to find out who Becky truly is is not ending anytime soon.
