“There is no truth to the rumors…”—Rachel Roy
Rachel Roy Responds To “Becky With The Good Hair” Rumors
Well the designer who skipped out on an obligation this week due to personal reasons, has now issued a formal statement flat out denying being Jay Z’s mistress while asking Bey’s bullying BeyHive to stop.
Rachel Roy is finally addressing those “Becky with the good hair” rumors.
In a statement released exclusively to PEOPLE, the celeb-favorite fashion designer denied that she is the woman at the center of the Jay Z cheating rumors – which were sparked by Beyoncé’s new album Lemonade.
Roy is speaking out after three days of intense speculation that began with a now-deleted Instagram post.
“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,” she said. “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”
Roy, 42, continued: “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,” she said.
