Rita Ora Takes a Selfie With Beyonce After ‘Becky’ Row
Rita Ora has posed up a storm with Beyonce after she was accused of having an affair with the singer’s husband, Jay Z, by her fans. The pair took a selfie together while inside the star-studded 2016 Met Gala bash on Monday, which took place in New York City. The picture, which appeared to be taken on Snapchat, shows a smiling Beyonce alongside Ora, captioned ‘Family.’
Ora and Beyonce’s rumor squashing moment comes after the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer felt the wrath of the superstar’s fans when she was thought to be the “Becky” on Beyonce’s Lemonade track “Sorry.” In the song, Beyonce sings about how her unfaithful lover should call “Becky with the good hair,” which set fans on the trail of the alleged mystery mistress. Ora then stirred the rumor mill when she stepped out two days after the record dropped, in a replica of Beyonce’s red and white Gucci outfit she wore in the video for “Formation.” Then the 25-year-old singer became a target for the Beyhive after she posted a photo of herself in a bra adorned with lemons on Snapchat following the April 23 release of Beyonce’s visual album, Lemonade. Soon after Ora took to Twitter to deny she was the woman associated with the controversial lyrics.
“I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumors are false,” Ora, who signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation in 2008, tweeted several days after. “I have nothing but the upmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.” Designer Rachel Roy was also pulled into the firing line, but spoke out to deny the claims. Ora looked stunning in a silver, feather Vera Wang creation as she attended the fashion gala on Monday evening. However Beyonce, who attended the event without husband Jay Z, stole the show in an impossibly tight, peach colored, rubber dress studded with gems.
