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 “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.

Rita Ora Responds to 'Becky' Speculation: 'These Rumors Are False'

Rita Ora just shut down rumors that she is “Becky with the good hair” from Beyonce‘s Lemonade, revealing that she did not have an affair with Jay Z.

“I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false,” the 25-year-old entertainer tweeted. “I have nothing but the upmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.”

This reveal comes after Rita donned a Lemonade-inspired bikini top, and copied Beyonce‘s exact outfit from her “Formation” video this week.

Rachel Roy Says She Respects Marriage Amid Beyonce's 'Becky With the Good Hair' Speculation

Rachel Roy is firing back.

The 42-year-old designer took to Twitter to talk about bullying after she was suspected to be the “Becky with the good hair” that Beyonce talks about on her new album Lemonade.

“I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind,” she tweeted.

Rachel seemingly confirmed that she’s the person Bey alludes to in her song “Sorry,” which implies Jay Z‘s infidelity.

Rachel Roy Hints She's Beyonce's 'Becky With the Good Hair'

Rachel Roy may have just confirmed that she’s the one alluded to as “Becky” in Beyonce‘s new track “Sorry,” off her latest album Lemonade.

The 42-year-old fashion designer took to Instagram after the song dropped, writing, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens.”

The lyrics to Bey‘s song imply Jay Z cheated and she sings, “Wave it in his face, tell him, boy, bye. Tell him, boy, bye, middle fingers up. I ain’t thinking ‘bout you. He better call Becky with the good hair.”

A lot of people on social media think this refers to Rachel, who used to be married to Jay‘s former partner Damon Dash. They also think it relates back to the 2014 elevator incident with Bey‘s sister Solange.

Meanwhile, fans of Beyonce have taken to Rachel‘s Wikipedia page and edited it to say that she died “under a lemonade stand.”

Rachel has since made her Instagram account private, but you can see the photo she posted below.
