Rita Ora addresses Jay Z affair rumours amid Beyonce’s Lemonade fallout

British singer Rita Ora has become the latest star to fall in the firing line of infidelity speculation in the aftermath of Beyonce’s explosive new album, Lemonade.

In case you missed it, Beyonce released a surprise visual album over the weekend entitled Lemonade.
Along with the gift of our next incredible playlist, the mother-of-one also dropped some very suggestive lyrics in her songs which addressed themes of infidelity regarding her husband of eight years, rapper Jay Z.
"Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home. Today I regret the night I put that ring on. He always got them f---ing excuses. He only want me when I'm not on there. He better call Becky with the good hair," she says in the telling tune, Sorry.
It was the latter lyric that stood out most to fans, with her devoted fans proceeding to go on a witch-hunt to discover Becky's identity.
Stylist Rachel Roy became the first woman speculated as "Becky".
It wasn’t long after the track dropped that Rachel Roy became the centre of speculation.
The fashion stylist was linked to the 99 Problems hitmaker in 2014 after Beyonce’s sister, Solange, was famously caught punching the rapper in a fit of rage in the lift of the Standard Hotel in New York.
Adding fuel to the already-fierce fire, Rachel took to Instagram to share a now-deleted photo along with a suggestive caption.
"Good hair don't care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens," Rachel penned alongside a selfie on her account, which has now been changed to private.
Despite changing her account preferences to private, her post didn't go unnoticed as she later took to Twitter to defend herself against the social media storm that resulted from the pic.
"I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn't be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind," Rachel, who was previously married to Jay Z's business partner Damon Dash, penned.
But Beyonce fans have now shifted their focus to another A-lister, the talented British singer, Rita Ora.
UK singer Rita Ora was the Beyhive's next guess.
Following the release of Lemonade, Rita, 25, took to Snapchat to share a selfie in which she dons a sheer bra adorned with lemons.
Eagle-eyed fans were also quick to spot her necklace which looks to be a small "J". However, others pointed out that it could be an "R" for Rita and simply looks like a "J" when it's snapped.
But Rita, who was not about to let the rumours grow, took to Twitter with a statement.
"I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumors are false," she penned . "I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce.”
This is not the first time Rita has been connected to Jay Z.
In 2014, after reports suggested a link between the two, Rita simultaneously addressed, and shut it down.
"Don't you dare disrespect Beyoncé like that ever again in your entire life. You should know better than that. That is just straight up disrespect. You can't go there. That is not even a question," she fired back in an interview with Power 105.1 when directly asked if she had slept with the music mogul.
But as the Beyhive remains buzzing from all the “Becky with the good hair” rumours, a source has spoken out claiming that despite rumours of marital infidelity, Beyonce and her husband Jay Z are stronger than ever.
"They definitely went through a rough patch a couple years ago, but they came out stronger in the end," a source close to the couple told People Magazine.
