Jay Z and Beyonce have been married for eight years now. And although the couple is among the most celebrated in the world, there have been numerous rumors about them splitting, especially after Beyonce recently released her visual album Lemonade, which featured lyrics suggesting that her husband was seeing someone else whom she refers to as “Becky.”
Of course, there have been numerous humorous suggestions as to whom Becky might actually be, with Kim Kardashian also jumping on the bandwagon by “revealing Becky” on Snapchat. The following is the clip she shared with her fans exclaiming, “You guys, I’ve found Becky.”
However, another woman, Karrine “Superhead” Steffans, came out stating that she was Jay Z’s Becky many years ago, before he met Beyonce. This was in an essay she wrote for Xo Jane. The following was her revelation.
“Over 15 years ago, I had Beyoncé’s husband. 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.
“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.”
“Her heart’s just not in it anymore and she doesn’t have the energy or the interest to try and fix things – and neither does he… Beyonce’s even at the point now that she doesn’t care if he finds release with someone else. She knows now that as much as she’s tried — therapy, date nights, vacations — she just can’t get over him straying.”
That said, Beyonce recently got a new set of problems and from unlikely quarters and that is from Tomi Lahren, who is a host on TheBlaze. She recently accused Beyonce of using the Super Bowl platform to perform “Formation,” a song which highlighted police brutality and seemed to support the militant Black Panther movement.
The line reads, “Your husband was a drug dealer for 14 years / He sold crack cocaine.”
The song is a response to the aforementioned statement, with Jay Z highlighting his exploits as a drug dealer. The following are some of his lines in regards to this.
“Fourteen-year drug dealer and still counting / Who deserves the Medal of Freedom is my accountant… Life made me ambidextrous / Countin’ with my right / Whippin’ white with my left wrist”
The lyrics are as highlighted by Yahoo. Jay Z however, also goes on to talk about how he was able to evade taxes. The following is the statement in question.
“I’m getting ghost, I’m hearing noises; I think it’s the boys, but I been banking at Deutsche.”
It seems to suggest that he kept his drug money in Deutsche Bank AG (USA). The bank has in the past been fined $258 million dollars for malpractices and may not be too happy to be featured in Jay Z’s song. This is as reported by the Detroit Free Press. Of course, if the IRS decides to investigate and finds Jay Z’s statement to be true, he may be in big trouble.
