Rita Ora could be the "Becky with the good hair," according to the Bey hive.

Amid the Lemonade scandal involving Rachel Roy, the British singer has also been accused of being the woman whom Beyoncé alleges in the album's fourth track, "Sorry," cheated with her husband Jay Z.

On the same night as Queen Bey's Lemonade release, Ora, 25, took to Snapchat to share a photo of herself wearing a lemon embroidered bralet along with a "J" necklace. Beyoncé fans immediately spread the selfie on social media, quickly making Ora a target in the "Becky" witch-hunt.





On Tuesday, the singer responded via Twitter.

"I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false," she wrote. "I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce. Let's continue enjoying Lemonade."



Ora's Lemonade-inspired selfie and denial statement come months after she filed a lawsuit against Jay Z's label Roc Nation. The "I Will Never Let You Down" singer claimed her "relationship with Roc Nation is irrevocably damaged" due to the label's lack of support in her music career, as stated in the complaint Ora filed against Roc Nation in December.

Ora was once thought as Jay Z's protégé when he signed her to Roc Nation in 2008.
