December 01, (THEWILL) – British singer and songwriter, Rita Ora, has finally addressed the rumour that she is “Becky With The Good Hair”, who Jay-Z cheated with and Beyonce sang about.
She spoke about her alleged relationship with Jay Z in a chat with Louis Theroux.
Ora insisted she was never romantically involved with her former mentor, Jay Z, at any point during their working relationship.
In 2016, Beyonce released some songs implying Jay-Z had been unfaithful with a mystery woman.
Lyrics about “Becky with the good hair” led to Ora being accused of having an affair with Jay Z after Ora posted a selfie of herself on Snapchat wearing a bikini top with lemon on it, in addition to rocking a necklace that seemingly bared the letter “J”.
Asking her about the accusations, Theroux said: “One of the things that comes up a lot when Beyoncé had her album was a mysterious woman called, ‘Becky With The Good Hair’ who Jay Z had allegedly cheated on.
“And then at some point in 2016, with ‘Lemonade’ in the air, you posted a picture of yourself with lemons on your bra and a ‘J’ around your neck.”
Rita rolled her eyes and replied, “Oh my God, it literally was a coincidence and I didn’t even think about it.
“I swear. And it wasn’t a ‘J’, it was an ‘r’. They flipped it round and it looked like a ‘J’.”
She added, “It was my own design with an underwear company called Tezenis that I was working with. This is what I mean, man, pinch of salt. You’ve gotta take things with a pinch of salt.”
Rita then revealed, “And that’s what’s insane, I just had to sit through that until a good friend of mine, Katy Perry, gave me a hilarious badge that said ‘Not Becky’.”
