Beyonce‘s visual album Lemonade came out in April 2016 and still, people are debating who “Becky with the good hair” is. On the track “Sorry” Beyonce calls the woman her husband Jay-Z cheated on her with Becky. At first, people were convinced it was Rachel Roy. But now Amber Rose is saying Becky is actually Gwyneth Paltrow.
While on former Hills stars Spencer and Heidi Pratt’s podcast, Make Speidi Famous Again, Rose divulged her Paltrow Becky theory. Just in case you aren’t part of the Beyhive the lyrics go, “They sneaking out the back door / He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair.”
“I definitely think that Gwyneth Paltrow is ‘Becky with the good hair,'” Rose said on the podcast. “I really feel like she’s the one who was, like, f***ing Jay-Z.”
Her reasoning behind the Paltrow Becky theory is that she used to be friends with Beyonce and now they’re not. “They were like friends, and then, like, you don’t see Gwyneth Paltrow with Beyoncé anymore. But like Beyonce’s still with Jay,” Rose speculated.
If you can remember when Paltrow was still married to Chris Martin they were super close to Beyonce and Jay-Z. Paltrow even dedicated her cookbook, It’s All Easy, to Blue, Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter.
Paltrow and Martin were even invited to Beyonce and Jay’s intimate wedding in 2008. But then Martin and Paltrow separated in March 2014, filed for divorce in Paril 2015 and then it was finalized in July 2016.
The couple separated a few months before Beyonce, Jay-Z and Solange’s elevator incident. It’s speculated that Solange hit Jay over his infidelity. The timelines of both relationships are close, but that doesn’t necessarily mean Paltrow is Becky.
Paltrow’s representative spoke to People and said she isn’t Becky and that Rose’s theory is “completely absurd and 100 percent false.”
