Who Is This Infamous Rachel Roy?


The past few days have been quite turbulent for some of the most famous celebrities in the world. Beyoncé released her new visual album ‘Lemonade,’ which deals with Jay Z’s infidelity, among other things.

Her song ‘Sorry’ particularly caught the attention of her most devoted fans, who figured out that Jay Z’s alleged lover is fashion designer Rachel Roy (not to be mistaken with celebrity chef Rachel Ray). Roy, who has been under attack since the release of Bey’s new album, further angered the Beyhive when she shared an Instagram post about having ‘good hair.’

Since everyone is now talking about this notorious Rachel Roy (despite the fact that the anger of Beyoncé’s fans should be aimed at her husband Jay Z, you know, the man who swore to be faithful to her and then cheated on the most popular woman in showbiz), here are a few things you probably didn’t know about her:

  1. If you’ve been following gossip news for some time, then you know that the Kardashians have to be involved in every celebrity drama, scandal or controversy. This situation is no exception. Namely, Roy’s best friend is Kim Kardashian, which could explain why Beyoncé and Jay Z didn’t attend her and Kanye West’s wedding.
  2. Roy was married to Jay Z’ former friend and business partner Damon Dash. After their stormy marriage and tumultuous split, the fashion designer got a 3-year restraining order against Dash and sole custody of their two girls.
  3. Rachel, who was allegedly the reason why Solange attacked her brother-in-law in that shocking elevator scene, has a pretty successful career, having worked with A-listers such as the Kardashians, Kate Hudson, Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Garner and Michelle Obama.

Roy, who has made her Instagram account private and had to defend herself on Twitter, has yet to issue an official statement regarding this whole unpleasant situation.
