Zendaya Says Jay Z Did Visit Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Visual Set

Zendaya keeps it super comfortable in sweats and sandals while touching down at LAX Airport on Tuesday (May 3) in Los Angeles.

The 19-year-old entertainer was returning from the East Coast where she stepped out for the 2016 Met Gala in New York City.

Zendaya was asked about her cameo in Beyonce‘s Lemonade album visuals.

“I think it’s art, so whether it’s real or whether it’s not, it’s just an outlet, a way for someone to express their feelings and whatever they’re going through,” Z told TMZ about the “Becky” stuff. “That’s a Beyonce question.”

As for whether she saw Jay Z visit the set, she said, “Yeah, I did. I was only there for one day. They’re beautiful together.”

Karrine Steffans Claims to Be One of Jay Z's Former Beckys

Karrine Steffans, the wife of former Scandal actor Columbus Short, has come forward to claim she is one of Jay-Z‘s former “Becky With the Good Hair” flings.

“Over 15 years ago, I had Beyoncé’s husband,” the 37-year-old author wrote in a piece for XOJane.com. “Yes, I was one of Jay Z’s Beckys back in the year 2000 for about three minutes, which is about as long it takes me to satisfy a man in the back of a Maybach while overlooking the beaches of Malibu.”

“I was a 21-year-old California transplant who’d been tossed into my first music video after a fateful meeting with director Hype Williams. A single mother raising my son on my own, I jumped at the chance to make $2,500 a day to dance around and look pretty next to the artist — Jay Z,” Karrine continued. “Chauffeured away from the set, down the winding road, and closer to the shoreline, Jay and I feasted on our attraction to one another — rabidly and quickly. After just a few minutes, I lifted my head from his lap, wiped my lips, and knew we’d made a mistake.”

Karrine says that her affair with Jay happened before his relationship with Bey, who called out “Becky” on her new album Lemonade.

“This was pre-Yoncé, of course, but the fact is that a Becky is a Becky, and I was the Becky for many men, and they were all my salvation and my destitution. They were my reason and my rationale, my life and my death, and eventually, my fame and my infamy,” Karrine added.

Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Is a 'Storyline' Crafted with Jay Z, Source Says

While many fans immediately came to the conclusion that Beyonce‘s new album Lemonade is about Jay Z cheating on her, sources say it’s actually just a storyline and not really about their marriage.

“They develop these storylines to sell albums. Lemonade is a movie crafted to drive sales,” a source told Page Six. “Jay and Beyonce are entertainers at the top of their game. Do you think Jay would release her album on [his own] Tidal if it really was all about him? He is 100 percent behind this.”

“They’re marketing masters,” the source continued. “They’re pros at this. The more attention, the more they sell, the better. All that speculation is to get press when they need it. Lemonade is much deeper than infidelity, but that’s the focus. As long as people are talking, they don’t care.”

Rumors have spread that Rachel Roy and Rita Ora are the “Becky with the good hair” woman mentioned in Bey‘s song “Sorry,” but they both denied the reports.

The source said that “Becky” is not actually one person, but a composite of the women that Jay had been rumored to have relationships with in the past.

“I don’t think Beyonce is calling out one girl. It is many girls. The rumors have been around for years,” the source said.
