Ever since security footage of Solange, slapping the Jigga out of Jay Z in a tightly-packed elevator as the trio exited a MET Gala after-party back in May, conspiracy theorists have gone all kinds of crazy scenario, coming up with various explanations for why Solange did what she did, and why Queen B just stood there looking crazy, barely batting an eyelash.
Then a fake Solange tweet went viral claiming Jay struck Blue Ivy’s mom. Gossip reports claimed that Jay Z was getting “too close” to Rachel Roy, the fashion designer ex-wife of his estranged Roc-A-Fella/Rocawear co-founder Damon Dash. Another rumor was put out that Jay Z’s wanted to attend a Rihanna afterparty solo, and lets not forget the most recent rumor of the Jigga man himself sans had a years-long affair with the R&B singer Mya. Rumors, rumors, rumors.
My my my, how the Monkeyfoolishness spreads.
Beyoncé did some damage control by diffusing the situation by posting a series of Instagrams featuring her and her younger sis in happier times. And just like that, all seemed happy with the musical couple. At least for now.
But that was short lived, last Saturday night while performing on their dual “On the Run” tour at The Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio, Beyoncé decided to drop a little surprise on the laps of her fans. In the middle of her song “Resentment,” the pop diva tweaked the lyrics a lil bit.
She said in her new lyrics:
“Been ridin’ with you for 12 years, why did I deserve to be treated this way by you,” she sang. “I know you’re probably thinkin’, ‘What’s up with B?’ I’ve been cryin’… I can’t stop cryin’… Can’t stop cryin’… You could’ve told me you weren’t happy. I know you didn’t want to hurt me,” she sang. “I got a look in her eyes and seen she’s had half of me. She ain’t even half of me. That bitch will never be.”
Now in the original song, the lyrics go
“Been ridin’ with you for six years”—but Jay Z and Beyoncé have been together for 12—and instead of, “I gotta look at her in her eyes and see she’s had half of me, She ain’t even half of me. That bitch will never be.”
Now, this could be another example of Beyoncé mind fucking all the recent gossip and rumors made by other sources. Either way, the Internet lost it and don’t know how to react.
When it comes to the falling out between Jay Z and Damon Dash, and rumors of Jay Z going after Dash wife, there is a bit of precedent. The two were best buds and, along with Kareem Burke, founded the label Roc-A-Fella Records together in 1995. But in 2004, their relationship was no more. According to their friend, producer/filmmaker Choke No Joke, it was over a mutual flame.
The filmmaker said “Both Jay and Dame was involved with a certain R&B singer, who I’m not gonna say her name out of respect ’cause she ain’t around to defend herself, but I believe that was a part of the initial friction.”
Many believed the woman in question was Aaliyah, whom Dash dated from the summer of 2000 up until her tragic death on Aug. 25, 2001, but those were just rumors.
As far as the Rachel Roy/MET Gala situation goes, Dash said, “If [Jay Z] was trying to holla at my wife though, that’s kind of fucked up. But I don’t think he was doing that. But that would be bad. That would be dark. That means he really has some resentment, but I would hope that wouldn’t be the case.”
Personally I highly doubt Jay Z is cheating on Beyonce. I mean why would he. But that just my opinion. Let us know what you think.
