Rachel Roy is firmly denying the rumors that she is the “Becky” at the center of Beyonce’s fiery new album. After receiving intense scrutiny throughout the weekend by fans who thought that she was the home-wrecker from Lemonade, the fashion designer tweeted out that she’s not that type of woman and said that cyber-bullying is never okay.
“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.”
Of course, the Beyhive has already moved on to suspecting someone else in Rita Ora, when it’s totally possible that Lemonade could be part fictional.
All the while, fans have been losing their ever-loving minds over the surprise album since it dropped, with everyone from The Daily Show to The Late Late Show putting their own spin on the mega hit. But that’s to be expected when the most-guarded pop star of this generation drops an in-depth, scandalous, and star-studded look into her own personal life.
