Is ‘Becky with the good hair’ a fake?

Becky with the good hair – the line from Beyonce’s new album, Lemonade has us all talking – but are we being played?

After the video for Bey’s single, Sorry, aired on HBO as part of the debut of her new album Lemonade this past weekend everyone has been guessing who ‘Becky’ is after the singer called out her cheating husband Jay Z.

Rather than referring to a single woman who had an affair with her husband Jay Z, an insider is claiming that the character in Beyonce’s Lemonade track Sorry refers to a number of women he cheated with. 

“I don’t think Beyoncé is calling out one girl. It is many girls. The rumors have been around for years,” a source told

In the early years of their marriage, it’s alleged that the rapper and music mogul had a number of liaisons out of wedlock, but that things changed once Jay Z and Beyonce welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy in 2012.

Fans initially thought ‘Becky’ was fashion designer Rachel Roy after Roy posted a picture to Instagram just hours after the album’s release.

‘Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.’ she wrote, but in a statement to People on Tuesday, Roy says that her comments were misinterpreted.

Singer Rita Ora has also denied that she is the woman in question, tweeting Tuesday that she had ‘nothing but the utmost respect’ for Beyonce.

Meanwhile, ‘another source close to the situation’ says that whole Becky set up is simply a marketing ploy by the superstar couple.

“Lemonade is a movie crafted to drive sales. Jay and Beyoncé are entertainers at the top of their game. Do you think Jay would release her album on [his own] Tidal if it really was all about him? He is 100 percent behind this,” the source told PageSix.
