Rihanna believes that Jay Z has been completely loyal to his wife Beyoncé despite rumors suggesting that he cheated on her, Hollywood Life reported. The report follows the release of Beyoncé's new album “Lemonade” where she used cryptic lyrics suggesting cheating.
The report said that though Rihanna, Beyoncé and Jay Z have not been always close since they became famous, Rihanna feels loyalty to both of them. In one of the songs, Beyoncé says: “He only want me when I’m not there/He better call Becky with the good hair.” The line led people to speculate that Jay Z might have cheated on Beyoncé with the “Black Widow” singer Rita Ora and designer Rachel Roy.
“Rihanna loves Beyoncé and respects her as a woman, friend and an artist. The same goes for Jay. He’s been nothing but loyal to Rihanna over the years and a true gentleman and she thinks the fans are giving him a raw deal over 'Lemonade,'” a source told Hollywood Life. “Ri loves that man (Jay Z) to pieces and doesn’t believe he has it in him to cheat. He’s a family man, who loves his wife and that beautiful girl of his.”
The source continued: “Like everybody else, Rihanna’s an outsider looking in. And from her vantage point, she’d love a man like Jay Z in her life. He’s the boss of all bosses; mature, educated and very suave. She places him on a pedestal and believes he’s committed to Bey.”
A previous report by Hollywood Life on Tuesday said that the album “Lemonade” reminded Rihanna of the time she was dating Chris Brown.
“Rihanna is feeling Beyoncé’s Lemonade. It was epic, but it brought back some very painful moments in her life, particularly her saga with Chris,” a source told Hollywood Life. “One of the reasons why Rihanna is single to this day is because good men are hard to find. She’s tried; Chris, Drake, Leonardo [DiCaprio], Matt Kemp, but as the saying goes, if you like it, then you should have put a ring on it — sadly, she still doesn’t have one.”
Meanwhile, Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles said he does not know who his daughter was talking about in the lyrics of her songs, “Daddy Lessons” and “Make It Plan,” Vanity Fair reported Tuesday.
In the song “Daddy Lessons,” Beyoncé says: “You remind me of my father, a magician. Able to exist in two places at once. In the tradition of men in my blood, you come home at 3 a.m. and lie to me. What are you hiding?”
In “Make It Plan,” the singer says: “Are you a slave to the back of his hand?” When asked if the lyrics hinted at him, Knowles responded saying: “I don't know but I don't think so. ... I've never in my life hit my daughter,” Vanity Fair reported.
Knowles was also asked if they could refer to someone hitting her mother, Tina Knowles, and he reportedly said: “Well, there’s no way that we can get into the mind of Beyoncé. Only Beyoncé can answer who specifically she was talking to. ... I’d rather not get into speculation, so my answer is I don’t know.”
Rumors have been doing the rounds for months that Beyoncé and Jay Z, who have a 4-year-old daughter together, are no longer happy in their marriage and may be heading toward a divorce. However, several such reports have been debunked previously.
