Dame Dash Reveals How Yoncé’s And Rachel Roy’s Lemonade Saga Affected His Children

The most memorable, if not iconic, lyric from Beyoncé’s riveting Lemonade is from her song Sorry, where King Bey eloquently riffs, “He better call Becky with the good hair”  about a cheating partner’s side-piece.

The song, along with the entire album, stirred controversy around Bey’s marriage to Jay Z since most of its songs allude to a partner committing adultery and how to overcome that. Beyoncé’s die-hard fans, the BeyHive, began speculating that the album was an autobiographical body of work and began a witch hunt to find Jay Z’s alleged mistress.

But they didn’t have to look too far.

During Lemonade’s HBO premiere, fashion designer Rachel Roy who was married to Jay Z’s ex-business partner Dame Dash uploaded the photo below with the following caption: “Good hair don’t care but we will take good lighting for selfies or self-truths, always. Live in the light. #NoDramaQueens.” 



Once the photo and its shady caption went live, the BeyHive, began to attack Roy, accusing her of being “Becky.” And unfortunately, their stings also landed on her and Dame Dash’s children.

In a recent interview with Access Hollywood Live, Dash revealed to Kit Hoover and Arsenio Hall  how the BeyHive’s behavior has affected his kids:

The only issue I had is them putting pressure on my children. And for me it’s the history between me and Jay and me being his partner at the time in Roc-A-Fella and Rocawear and all that and [his] best friend… Of course on a human level, it would bother me.

The worst disrespect of all time is to disrespect someone’s children… The way I was feeling about it, is that anyone who would harass a child is a coward. I have been in rap for a while but I have never had anyone disrespect my child.

Dash also told the hosts that he has objective opinions about the Roy-Beyoncé- Lemonade saga but definitely addressed it with his therapist.

Becky Denies Being Becky: “My Instagram Post Was Meant To Be Fun And Lighthearted”

Rachel Roy Denies That She's Becky

Splash News

People who throw rocks then hide their hands and play victim are lame. Always have been. Always will be. Rachel Roy is no exception.

After basically inserting herself into the middle of Beyoncé’s Lemonade saga (see screenshot below), the designer is now trying to back away from the scene of the crime, insisting that she is not “Becky,” the woman Bey referenced as Jay’s ex-mistress on her new album.



Here’s the thing: It’s very possible that Rachel Roy is not Becky; however, I find it very hard to believe that she wasn’t intentionally trying to stir up some shit when she made that post. Considering that rumors have already placed her at the center of the Met Gala elevator showdown, one would think that she would try to steer clear of anything relating to Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and infidelity. But instead, she saw fit to throw that corny “good hair” comment out there on social media shortly after Bey suggested that Jay had cheated with “Becky with the good hair.” Sure, it can be argued that it’s just a coincidence, but I think we’re all smarter than that. And furthermore, who the hell is claiming that they have “good hair” in 2016? The answer is no one—except lame chicks looking for attention. And let us not forget her tweeting a Jay-Z lyric about a week or so after the Met throwdown. Shenanigans all round, y’all. Shenanigans all around.

Unfortunately for Roy, things didn’t play out as she’d probably hoped during Lemonade weekend. Her little stunt resulted in her social media accounts being flooded with bee emojis and threats, courtesy of the BeyHive. So now, she’s attempting to set the record straight.

“I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that,” Roy said in a statement to People. “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”

But what was fun or lighthearted about that post? Seriously. I’ll wait.

“Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughters in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother – and I know many mothers would agree – I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable,” she continued. “I would hope that the media sees the real issue here – the issue of cyber bullying – and how it should not be tolerated by anyone.”

While it’s wrong that people have gone as far as to threaten Roy and her kids, I can’t help but feel that she brought some of these headaches on herself trying to be funny.


10 Things To Know About Rachel Roy, Including That She’s Not A Chef

We all loved Beyoncé’s “Lemonade.” But what we didn’t love, or expect, was an Instagram post from designer Rachel Roy that looked like this:


Strong attacks from the BeyHive followed, including attacks on Roy’s teenage daughter, Ava, which came about after the designer made her IG private. But aside from crowning her “Becky with the good hair,” based on the Lemonade track “Sorry,” and knowing about her clothing, what do we really know about Rachel Roy? Probably not a lot. So here are 10 interesting things:

Rachel Roy Is Not Rachael Ray

I’m sure you heard that quite a few very confused BeyHive members swarmed the page of chef Rachael Ray, accusing her of being “Becky with the good hair,” and pretty much attacking her character. Despite many people commenting on the fact that they were coming after the wrong Rachel, people have continued to leave crazy remarks on the chef’s page as recently as five hours ago. One woman even said, “I’m perfectly aware of that fact but this chick had it comin for a million other reasons anyway.”

Dame Dash Sues Ex-Wife Rachel Roy

Designer Rachel Roy Calls Cops On Damon Dash


Dame is not playing any games with Rachel Roy.

After losing custody of his daughters, Ava and Tallulah to ex-wife Rachel Roy, Dame Dash has decided to sue Rachel for $2.5 million. Dame recently lost custody after failing to show up to a custody hearing. Rachel was awarded full custody and a three-year restraining order against Dame. Dame is also being required to have supervised visits.

Now, according to TMZ, Dame has filed a lawsuit against Rachel. In the paperwork, Dame claims Rachel has breached a contract in regards to their two fashion companies Royale Etenia LLC and Topson Downs. Dame claims she has not only breached their contract but is also preventing him from making any money.

In true Dame fashion, he took to Instagram to express himself. He stated,

I been looking the other way for years but taking my children’s money to buy shoes and car services for a company you didn’t put up a dollar for and not letting me see my kids because I’m not alright with it is the most distasteful tacky thing a person can do..,I though I had Bergdorf Goodman but ended up with Macy’s…I’m not even mad it’s just business at this point it’s just terrible what money and the perception of it does to people that will never have it…they will even spend their children’s money on it…#mainlandmentality and and told yall I was gonna get at tops n downs for being #culturevultures and still #InvestInWomen

Lawd, we have a feeling things are about to get A LOT messier between these two.

Damon Dash Loses Custody Of Daughters To Ex-Wife Rachel Roy

It appears that the custodial saga between Damon Dash and his ex-wife Rachel Roy is over—at least for now it is.

According to TMZ, Roy was awarded sole legal and physical custody of their daughters Ava Dash, 15, and Tallulah Dash, 6. Both Roy and Dash were petitioning for full custody of the girls.

As previously reported, the designer and the former record label executive have accused one another of being bad parents who resort to insane measures to spite the other. As you may recall, Dash took to Instagram a few weeks ago Dash claiming that Roy has been intentionally trying to keep him away from his children.

Interestingly, it doesn’t appear that the 43-year-old has been trying his best to remain in his daughters’ lives because he failed to show up for court today, which probably didn’t help his argument. As a result of the new ruling, he is only allowed supervised visitation with his daughters. Roy was also granted a three-year restraining order against Dash.

So far, the former Roc-a-Fella CEO has not commented on the ruling, but our guess is that he will try to fight it in some way shape or form. It’s unclear why he was a no-show at court today, but if his Instagram page serves as any indication of his whereabouts, he selected today—of all days—to go on a road trip with his lady friend Raquel Horn. Perhaps he already knew that he would not be awarded custody and didn’t want to go through the formality of hearing it from the judge’s mouth. However, his actions still seem kind of careless.

Rachel Roy Calls Cops On Damon Dash For Allegedly Failing To Send Their Kid To School

April 2nd, 2015 - By Jazmine Denise Rogers

The bitter feud between Damon Dash and his ex-wife Rachel Roy is heating up. Last week, the fashion designer called the cops on her famous ex-hubby because she claimed that he hadn’t been sending one of their daughters to school, TMZ reports.

According to court documents, Roy has been trying to have Dash’s visitation privileges revoked because she considers him to be an unfit father. She also alleged that he kidnapped their daughter from a nail salon. She is also reportedly alleging that he is a drug addict with a history of domestic violence.

Dash, however, believes that his ex is simply using their children as a pawn in her attempt to make a power move on him. He hasn’t made it clear what he thinks her motive for all of this is.

“Using the kids to get back at the fathers does nothing positive for the kids,” the former hip hop mogul wrote on Instagram yesterday. “Crazy how hard I’ve had to fight to be a good dad with emotional women…. The math just doesn’t add up to me…but I will always fight to make sure my kids have a mother and a father but it’s the most non logical fight on the planet.”

He also released footage of the police waiting for him at his Los Angeles home after Roy called the authorities on him and just two weeks ago, the Roc-A-Fella founder accused Roy of trying to keep him away from his kids.

It’s unfortunate that things have come to this. Hopefully, they can find a way to reach a happy medium—although it doesn’t appear that this will be happening in the near future.

Dame Dash Comments On Rumors About Jay Z Being Inappropriate With His “Wife,” Rachel Roy

Catergate has come and gone, but the aftermath still lingers. Although things seem to be calming down on the Carter-Knowles home front, Jay and Bey’s blaring absence from Kanye West’s wedding seemed to serve as another red flag that things are not going as well as the family would like us to believe. Naturally, there are plenty of theories floating around as to why the couple pulled a no-show, but one particular theory leads right back to Catergate’s front door step. According to E!, insiders are stating that the hip hop power couple bailed on the ceremony to avoid being in the presence of Rachel Roy.

“Given Kim and Kanye’s list of celeb friends, surprisingly, they didn’t invite that many,” the source claimed. “They wanted it to be a small and intimate wedding. Jay Z and Beyoncé were invited but didn’t come, seemingly to avoid drama from Rachel Roy who was going. In the end, the wedding was full of love and super intimate.”

As you may recall, it was said that Rachel Roy played a role in Solange and Jay Z’s blowout fight the night of the Met Gala. Some even believe that it was sparked by Jay behaving inappropriately towards Rachel, who is the ex-wife of his former business partner, Damon Dash. Interestingly, Dame recently weighed in on the entire scandal and he doesn’t seem too convinced that Jay would try to move in on his “wife.”

“If he was tryna holla at my wife though, that’s kinda f*cked up. [laughs] But I don’t think he was doing that. That would be bad,” he told Hip Hop Motivation. “That would be dark. That means he really has some resentment but I would hope that that wouldn’t be the case.”

As for what he thought about the fight, Dame says it was hilarious.

“I thought it was funny because Jay is the kind of guy you don’t see him move like that that much. And when he does move, if it’s not that cool looking, then it’s going to be kicks. Also I feel like nobody teases Jay but me for some reason. It’s just the first time I’ve seen people freely expressing themselves.”

“I don’t think he should mad about it,” Dame continued. “I think he should be laughing. That sh*t was funny. Everybody fights. Girls done spit on me before but I be a little more ‘You better chill out.’ The shit is funny.’ Jay has to worry about perception because corporate people pay him. He really has to play that game. I thought what was ironic about it was people got to see how he played sh*t off. And how something crazy can happen and four seconds later when it’s cameras on they act like nothing is going on. I thought that was interesting to see that and how good he is at it. If people don’t like what he’s doing, he won’t get that corporate check.”

#Facts: What You Should Know About Rachel Roy’s Relationship With Jay Z

From StyleBlazer

So Rachel was in a position where –she started off as an intern– Dame was attracted to her and started assisting him. She got to be hands-on with the lines because being that she was dating him, he brought her into his business structure. So while he was running a record label and Roc-A-Wear, he had her there. She learned a lot about the business and Dame taught her as well. It helped her ultimately in the long run.

So, again, was there ever anything between Rachel and Jay? Naw. I doubt that. I doubt that highly. If that was the case, it would have come out a long time ago. I think people are reaching with that one.

What about after her divorce from Damon? I don’t doubt.. I don’t think so. She just doesn’t strike me as that type of person to be that devious or mean to date her ex-husband’s former partner. She doesn’t come across or carry herself like that. I don’t think so, but I’ve seen it happen. These things can happen… but I don’t see Rachel Roy doing that.

Do you know what set Solange off? I don’t know. It’s a possibility… I know Solange. And Solange is Beyonce’s “big sister,” even though Beyonce is older. She’s very protective over her sister. Me seeing what I saw, I can say that maybe she felt like her sister was disrespected in some way and as she normally does, she defends her.

Is Solange mentally ill or on drugs? Naw! No! Hell no. I don’t think Solange is on drugs at all. Not on hard drugs, anyway. Like I said, she’s very passionate about her sister. She’s very, very passionate. And Solange is a no tolerance, non-political, don’t care about the music industry or entertainment business [person]. She’s not a politically correct person. So she’s going to do what she feels, despite all the politics in the industry. She doesn’t care for it.
