"Becky with the good hair" has finally come forward.

It’s been a bit of a roller coaster week for our friend, Jay Z.

Not only did his Grammy Award winning wife release a probably future Grammy Award winning album, the entire album is thought to be about him cheating on her.

Her being Beyoncé, that is.

Beyoncé’s new visual album, Lemonade, dropped last Saturday and has made quite a splash. None so much as the lyric ‘Becky with the good hair’ from song ‘Sorry’.

It's been speculated the 'Becky' in question, who Beyoncé insinuates is the woman her husband of eight years had an affair with, is American fashion designer, Rachel Roy.

The designer seemingly outed herself on Instagram hours after the album was released. Fingers also pointed to British singer, Rita Ora, who posted a series of snap chats leading fans to believe she could have also been 'Becky', something the singer feverishly denied.


Now, American model, Karrine Short has written an essay for website XOJane claiming she was one of Jay Z, real name Shawn Carter's, 'many Beckys.'

"Over 15 years ago, I had Beyoncé’s husband," Short begins. "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."

We doubt we've ever heard a classier sentence.

Short continues, "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."

Short claims this is pre-Beyoncé, yet the King and Queen of 21st century music met when Beyoncé was just 18-years-old and started dating when she was 19, meaning they've now been together for 15 years. So yes, it is possible that it was before Beyoncé and Jay Z were serious, but only just.

In the essay Short discusses the other women Jay Z is thought to have had relations with and says she believes it was Roy who caused the infamous elevator fight between Jay Z and Beyoncé's sister Solange.

"What about Cathy White?" she writes. "The rumors that never go away. Articles tucked away in shady corners of the Internet that she was just about to reveal her affair with Jay, but just days before the story would leak, she was hospitalised with what was first categorized as blunt force trauma to the head, but later changed to a brain aneurism. She was a Becky. She had good hair."

We may never know who the 'Becky' Beyoncé refers to is, but what we do know is the Carters sure know how to get the world talking.
