Now magazine is reporting that “serial dater” Rita Ora has spoken out about the cheating rumors plaguing her.
It is alleged that Rita Ora is the woman identified as “Becky with the good hair” in Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade. Superstar Beyoncé hints that Becky/Rita slept with Beyoncé’s husband Jay Z.
Beyoncé and Jay Z have long been plagued by rumors that their marriage is on the rocks. There were previously allegations that Jay Z cheated with his protégé Rihanna. This was cited as the reason that Beyoncé and Rihanna allegedly “do not like each other.”
The X Factor judge and friend of Simon Cowell’s spoke out on Twitter. Rita wrote the following.
“I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false…I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.”
Rita had previously fuelled speculation that she was “Becky with the good hair” when she posted some cryptic social media messages, including a poster for the film Ash Wednesday, which is about adultery.
“The movie, starring Elizabeth Taylor, sees a woman try to save her marriage by getting plastic surgery because she fears her husband has lost interest in her. She then contemplates whether to cheat on him with a younger man.”
Rita Ora has previously been linked to Harry Styles of One Direction, who she was spotted flirting with at the Brit Awards in 2013, according to Hollywood Life.
The Sun has dubbed Rita Ora a “date-a-holic,” pointing out that the singer has been linked to an array of A-listers and was once spotted with “three blokes in one week.”
“Rita Ora saw Lewis Hamilton, Krept and another mystery man…Gossip pages are often full of pictures of X Factor judge Rita with hunky arm candy, which begs the question: Is she a date-oholic?”
The tabloid reflects that “Rita has men falling at her feet — although she never seems to stick with them for long.”
Among Rita Ora’s alleged conquests are: Ricky Hil, who she dated in July 2013; Zayn Malik, whom she was spotted having dinner with in London, before Zayn left One Direction; and Travis Barker of Blink 182, who accompanied Rita to a basketball game.
Ora has also been linked to Chris Brown, who co-starred with her in the steamy video for the song “Body On Me.”
There were also whispers that Rita got cozy with Justin Bieber when she collaborated with his fellow Canadian countryman Drake. That’s not all — Rita was spotted kissing Drake himself backstage at a gig.
While some social media users have taken Rita at her word and urged Lemonade analysts to calm down, others remain convinced that Rita Ora is the cheating woman from Beyoncé’s album.
Others gave their opinion that Rita Ora could not be “Becky with the good hair” because her hair is not that special.
Beyoncé fans are taking turns attacking women believed to be “Becky” on social media. Rachel Roy was originally believed to be the woman, but Beyoncé fans turned on Rita Ora after she shared a Snapchat photo of herself wearing a bra with lemons emblazoned across the cups. Rita also wore a “J” necklace in the controversial picture.
The Lemonade cheating reference appears on track four of Beyoncé’s new album.
Rita Ora was signed to the Roc Nation label in 2008 and was originally thought of as Jay Z’s protégé but has since sued him for mismanaging her career.
