Rachel Roy: The Rumor I Started About Being Jay Z’s Mistress Is Not True
Rachel Roy is waving the white flag. After foolishly insinuating on Instagram that she’s Jay Z’s mistress, Roy is now asking Beyonce fans for mercy. The fashion designer released this statement to People magazine regarding her suggestion that she’s the “Becky with Good Hair” Beyonce is singing about on her Lemonade album.
“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,” she said. “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”
Immediately after Beyonce release Lemonade this weekend, Roy posted an image on IG with a caption that seemed to be a response to Bey’s “Becky with good hair” lyric. “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always,” Roy penned.
In the days that followed, Roy’s social media accounts were flooded with threats from fans who were out for her blood. She even had to cancel an upcoming appearance out of fear.
