Gwyneth Paltrow's rep responds to Amber Rose's claims that she is 'Becky with the good hair'
There is one answer that all Beyoncé fans need to know, and they won't stop until they get it: Who is Becky With The Good Hair?
The whole debacle began back in 2016 when the Crazy In Love singer alluded to her husband Jay-Z's mistress with the line "They sneaking out the back door/He only want me when I’m not there/He better call Becky with the good hair" on her track Sorry. The rapper later confirmed that he had been unfaithful, telling The New York Times Style Magazine that he'd built up walls due to issues from his childhood, which led to him to infidelity. "The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone's face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself," he stated.
After Beyoncé's song was released, the songstress' fanbase went into 0verdrive, hunting with a fiery vengeance for this so-called 'Becky'. How dare Jay-Z cheat on their Queen? And how dare Beyoncé not tell them who this girl was, so they could hunt her down and have her guts for garters?
Two years later, we're no closer to figuring out who exactly the mystery woman is. However, recently American actress Amber Rose threw Gwyneth Paltrow into the mix as a potential Becky when she was interviewed on podcast Make Speidi Famous Again.
Talking to Spencer and Heidi Pratt, she said: "I definitely think that Gwyneth Paltrow is Becky with the good hair. I really feel like she’s the one who was, like, f—ing Jay-Z. They were like friends, and then, like, you don’t see Gwyneth Paltrow with Beyoncé anymore. But like Beyoncé's still with Jay."
Amber later claimed that she was completely joking - but this didn't stop her from causing complete commotion across Hollywood. Immediately, tongues started wagging that Gwynnie was the woman who had stolen Jay away from his wife all those years ago.
However, others refused to believe that the Iron Man actress could be the culprit who we'd all been looking for, with
@Ameuvelle writing "Gwyneth Paltrow has lots of great qualities, but I wouldn’t say that ‘good hair’ was one of them it’s kinda plain. She ain’t Becky."
However, we can finally put all rumours to rest now, as the 45-year-old has hit back at Amber's claims, with a spokesperson telling People magazine that they are "completely absurd and 100 percent false". They also added that Gwyneth is very much still friends with Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
On her part, Amber has also denied the claim, taking to social media to confirm that she was only joshing. "Bruh we were joking on a Podcast! I have no information about anyone’s Personal Life," she put.
So, the search for Becky With The Good Hair lives to fight another day. Good luck, Beyhive.
