It’s been a little over two years since Beyoncé‘s album Lemonade dropped, which is apparently just enough time for Amber Rose to feel comfortable speculating about some of the relationship bombshells that were dropped in the lyrics.
“I definitely think that Gwyneth Paltrow is ‘Becky with the good hair,’” Rose said. “I really feel like she’s she’s the one who was, like, fucking Jay-Z.”

Just to refresh your memory, in the song “Sorry,” Beyoncé explains that her love interest seems to “only want [her] when [she’s] not there,” and ignores her when they’re actually together. So she tells him to go “call Becky with the good hair” instead. Back in 2016, there was plenty of speculation as to who this mystery woman threatening Hollywood’s most iconic marriage might be. Fashion designer Rachel Roy seemed to be a popular culprit, though people also made cases for Rita Ora and even Taylor Swift.
Needless to say, Becky never stepped forward, and the couple ultimately decided to stay together and released a joint album this summer. But Rose is convinced there’s a lot of evidence pointing to Paltrow that people didn’t pick up on.
“They were like friends, and then, like, you don’t see Gwyneth Paltrow with Beyoncé anymore,” Rose said. Paltrow also “consciously uncoupled” from longtime husband in 2016, the same year Lemonade was released. “But like Beyonce’s still with Jay,” Rose added. Hm…
For Paltrow’s part, her team was quick to shoot down Rose’s theory. A rep told People, it’s “completely absurd and 100 percent false.”
And just like that, the mystery of Becky lives to confound us another day.
