That hair, though. Rachel Roy was spotted in Los Angeles on Monday, April 25, after canceling an appearance in New York City due to a “personal emergency” after Beyoncé dropped her new album, Lemonade, on Saturday, April 23.

In case you missed it, the 43-year-old Grammy winner’s fans attacked Roy on social media over the weekend after the designer hinted that she’s “Becky with the good hair” from the superstar’s newly released track “Sorry.” In the song, Beyoncé slams her unfaithful lover and refers to his other woman as “Becky.” “He only want me when I’m not there,” Beyoncé sings. “He better call Becky with the good hair.”

Roy — who unconfirmed reports have romantically linked to the “Formation” singer’s husband, Jay Z — captioned a since-deleted Instagram post: “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.”

Bey’s Beyhive was quick to attack the stylist, leading Roy, 42, to make her Instagram account private.

“I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind,” Roy later expressed on Twitter. 

The fashion designer was previously married to Jay Z’s former Roc-A-Fella Records cofounder Damon Dash. Dash and Jay Z parted ways in 2004, and the entrepreneur later alluded they had a personal falling out.

“All we did is made a company together and sold the company and went and did other businesses,” Dash explained to Global Grind in a 2013 interview. “It was a business arrangement obviously. … Maybe what you might want to ask is about the friendship, what happened with that, but that’s more personal.”
