After the release of Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade last year, fans immediately fixated on one song called “Sorry,” in which the 35-year-old talks about a cheating beau — allegedly hubby Jay Z — singing the lyric, “He better call Becky with the good hair.”
And while Twitter was abuzz with speculation over who “Becky” could be, designer Rachel Roy hinted that she was the mistress in an Instagram post that made her a target for cyberbullies.
Despite the drama that followed, Rachel had no problem attending an event on Thursday, May 11, during which Bey’s sister, Solange Knowles, was scheduled to perform. As fans recall, a nasty fight between Solange and Jay Z in an elevator after the 2014 MET gala was reportedly over Rachel’s “too close for comfort” relationship with the rapper.
However, it doesn’t appear as though the ladies crossed paths at the function, which was for Dior’s latest cruise collection.

If there’s anything we learned from last year’s “Becky” fiasco, it’s that the Beyhive is one fandom you definitely don’t want to mess with.
According to The Shade Room, Rachel inserted herself into the fray by captioning a pic, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
It didn’t take long for Bey devotees to swarm the 43-year-old’s account, writing a barrage of negative comments. A few people even changed her Wikipedia account to read “Rachel Roach” and “Dusty Side Hoe that died under a lemonade stand.”
Following the Instagram abuse, Rachel spoke out about the bullying on Twitter. “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind,” she wrote.
Hopefully everyone involved has put this matter behind them.
