Rachel Roy Responds to Beyhive Amid ‘Lemonade’ Rumors

Beyonce LemonadeBeyonce’s new album Lemonade was recently released and gave fans a raw look into her life, including those possible cheating rumors that have plagued her and Jay Z time and time again.

The song “Sorry” stood out to fans on the 11-track visual album for its in-your-face lyrics about cheating, which many feel was Bey addressing the Jay Z cheating rumors through the years. The infamous 2014 elevator incident, when Beyonce’s sister Solange was caught assaulting Jay Z at the Met Gala, was said to be over an uncomfortably close friendship with designer Rachel Roy.

Now, thanks to “Sorry”, Roy and the elevator incident are back in the spotlight. At the end of the song, Beyonce sings the line, “He better call Becky with the good hair,” which fans had an inkling was aimed at Roy, but that the designer seemed to confirm with an Instagram post…which the Beyhive proceeded to let loose on.

Since then, Roy has responded again with a (not so) cryptic tweet, writing “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”

She’s also released a statement to People, denying any speculation about her and, again, condemning bullying. “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.”
