RITA Ora has rolled her eyes and denied she is ‘Becky With The Good Hair’ in a new interview with documentary maker Louis Theroux.
The singer, 32, was grilled on allegations she was once ‘the third woman’ in Beyonce and Jay-Z’s marriage but has insisted it was not her.
She then insisted that a photo she put on Snapchat of herself at the time in a bikini top with lemons on it was just a “coincidence”, adding that the “J” necklace in the snap was an “r” that had deliberately flipped – by someone else.
Louis asked: “One of the things that comes up a lot when Beyoncé had her album was a mysterious woman called Becky With The Good Hair, who allegedly Jay-Z had cheated on.
“And then at some point in 2016, with Lemonade in the air, you posted a picture of yourself with lemons on your bra and a ‘J’ around your neck.”
Sighing and doing an eye roll, Rita said: “Oh my God, it literally was a coincidence and I didn’t even think about it.
“I swear. And it wasn’t a ‘J’ it was an ‘r’. They flipped it round and it looked like a ‘J’.”

She added: “It was my own design with an underwear company called Tezenis that I was working with. This is what I mean, man. Pinch of salt. You’ve gotta take things with a pinch of salt.”
Rita continued: “And that’s what’s insane – I just had to sit through that until a good friend of mine, Katy Perry, gave me a hilarious badge that said ‘Not Becky’.”
Rita went on to explain how “frustrating” and “annoying” it is that people are more interested in “gossip” that her career achievements.
“I feel like everyone is interested in my personal life, like everything else is not worthy enough, which sometimes is frustration because I also have a lot of credentials to sustain my respect,” she added.
Louis’ also spoke to Rita about her rise to fame, having fled the Kosovo war as a small child with her parents and two siblings.
The 45-minute documentary also featured her film director husband Taika Waititi, who she married in secret this summer.
New Zealand born Taika was shown visiting Rita on the set of a music video shoot.
He explained to Louis that Batman star Robert Pattinson introduced him to Rita and they enjoyed a three-year friendship before getting together romantically.
Rita, meanwhile, told the documentary maker: “[Marriage] is something I’ve always dreamed of as a kid.
“He definitely is a great human. He’s awesome.”
