Beyonce held no bars on her Lemonade album when she unleashed these words: “He better call Becky with the good hair.” The line, featured on fan favorite “Sorry,” set the internet ablaze by adding fuel to rumors concerning Jay Z’s infidelity.
Although rumors circulated that Rachel Roy was the source of Solange and Jay Z’s elevator altercation at the Met Gala in 2014, the fashion designer emerged as the prime “Becky” suspect when she took to Instagram to post about her “good hair” hours after Beyonce debuted her Lemonade special on HBO.
“There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors,” she told People in an attempt to clear her name after she became an instant target for the Beyhive.
Jay Z’s former business partner Damon Dash addressed the Lemonade rumors concerning his ex-wife in an interview with Access Hollywood on Monday (June 27). The Music Mogul star revealed that his children’s feelings took precedent over all in how he chose to handle the allegations.
“The only issue I had was them putting pressure on my children,” he said. “For me it’s the history between me and Jay, me being his partner at the time in Roc-A-Fella and Rocawear and all that and best friend … of course, on a human level, it would bother me.”
While Dash isn’t one to hold back his thoughts, he opted to deal with the matter professionally. “I believe in therapy, and I believe an objective opinion sometimes helps you be a better person,” he said.
Although he says that the rumors are behind him, he made his anti-bullying stance clear. “I don’t believe in bullying in any form but especially not on my children,” he continued. “The worst disrespect of all time is to disrespect someone’s children. That’ll make them bug out.”
