The witch hunt is on. Ever since the Beyhive heard Beyonce reference "Becky With The Good Hair," they've had their pitch forks out in search of the woman who would dare threaten their queen's marital bliss.
Caught in the crossfire thus far? Rachel Roy, the fashion designer who's been linked to Jay for years, and TV chef Rachael Ray, whose only crime was having a name similar to Rachel Roy. Roy has since released a statement denying that she's "Becky," but the hive has another suspect caught in their crosshairs anyway: singer Rita Ora.
On Saturday night (the same night that Beyonce's Lemonade premiered), the "Body On Me" singer posted a snapshot pic of herself wearing a bikini top with lemons on the breasts. What really got the Beyhive going was her necklace though - it looked like Rita was wearing a "J" around her neck. (It's actually a lowercase R, but whatever, right?)
Immediately, they then resurfaced this photo, via LoveBScott.com:
And made the only analysis that could follow:
So of course, the Beyhive attacked, swarming Rita's comment section with lemon and bee emojis. But was this really called for? Cheating rumors have swirled around Jay and Rita ever since she signed at Roc Nation in 2008, but Rita denied them during an interview with Power 101.5's The Breakfast Show, Pop Crush reports.
"Don't you dare disrespect Beyonce like that ever again in your entire life," Rita told the hosts. "You should know better than that. That's just straight-up disrespect. You can't even go there. That's like, not even a question."
It's official: the Beyhive is on the warpath, and everyone is a suspect. Rita has yet to respond to the rumors, but it probably doesn't help that she stepped out today wearing the same red Gucci dress that Beyonce rocked in her "Formation" video. Via Just Jared:
What are you doing, Rita??
