Rachel Roy Ignites Jay Z Affair Rumors With Instagram Post Following Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ Release
Beyonce's release of the visual album Lemonade last night (April 23) damn near broke the Internet. On top of the great new collection of songs and the stunning accompanying visual, there were the low-key insinuations Bey makes throughout the project that Jay Z might have broken his vows at some point during their marriage that kept people talking (and memeing) into the wee hours of the morning. Now, the blogosphere has even more fodder as an Instagram post from Rachel Roy has added more fuel to the fire.
As a recap: Roy, the former wife of Dame Dash, is rumored to be the person Jay might have been getting too close to when Solange infamously attacked Hov in an elevator back in 2014.
“Rachel is a little too close to Jay Z,” a source told The New York Daily News around the time of the incident. “Solange doesn’t like it, and Beyonce doesn’t like it.” Solange is said to have warned Rachel with the following words, “anyone who gets close to Jay has to be warned and deal with her as a sister,” a source told Us Weekly.
Fast-forward to last night. On the track "Sorry" off Lemonade, Beyonce proclaims, "He better call Becky with the good hair." A few hours after the song dropped, Roy posted a selfie along with a friend captioned, "Good hair don't care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens."
The post reignited rumors that she was indeed the third piece in Jay and Bey's love triangle. Roy later took down the post and made her page private. Coincidence or nah?
Roy has since somewhat addressed the topic on Twitter. In a recent post she typed, "I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn't be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind," which could be a reference to the way she is undoubtedly being turnt up on by the Bey Hive.
The drama continues.
