Rachel Roy Tweets Jay Z Lyrics, As Her Role in Solange Elevator Fight Emerges
Will this Solange/Jay Z elevator drama never end?
Rachel Roy, the designer who recently became the center of the Solange/Jay Z scandal, got herself caught in a little Twitter debacle after posting a Jay Z lyric.
On Wednesday, in efforts to promote her new summer clothing line, the star tweeted:
The beach is better! Escape with RRR's Summer '14 video http://t.co/CqHIlScIEo"Beach is Better" is a song on Jay’s latest album … But according to Roy, there was nothing behind the tweet. She tried to clear things up with the following tweet:

Roy’s background with Jay Z is an interesting one. Roy was previously married to Jay Z’s former business partner Damon Dash. Also, as Wendy Williams’ noted in her extensive theorizing, Dash and Jay Z, allegedly, used to pass around interns and other female office employees between them and Roy was an intern at one point.
Earlier this week, reports surfaced that before Solange attacked Jay Z in a hotel elevator following the Met Gala, she also went in on Roy, and that Beyonce “got in the middle of it.”
An insider claims Roy is concerned that the negative reports about her and Jay Z could ultimately affect her business. "She's worried this story could ruin her career and hurt her socially," another source said.
