Beyoncé’s newest album “Lemonade” started people discussing who “Becky with the good hair” could be, and Rachel Roy’s Instagram post convinced many that Jay-Z cheated with her (which also led to a mix-up of Rachels). But a new woman has been added to the speculation.

On Monday, Rita Ora was spotted wearing the same red-and-white Gucci dress that Beyoncé wears in the “Formation” music video.

While this could be (and probably is) simply a good sartorial choice on Ora’s part, her outfit appeared only one day after the release of “Lemonade” on HBO and Tidal.

Ora also posted a Snapchat of herself on Sunday wearing a lemon bra and a diamond pendant that looks like a “J” in the selfie-style shot:

But it’s her signature “r” initial necklace. The juxtaposition certainly didn’t appease Bey-defenders, though.

Rita’s latest Instagram post is a photo from the 1973 Elizabeth Taylor movie “Ash Wednesday,” which is about a middle-aged woman who submits herself to full-body plastic surgery in an attempt to woo her husband back as their marriage fails.

The comments in Beyoncé’s defense, as per usual, contain many bee and lemon emojis.

Ora sued Jay-Z label Roc Nation earlier this year, arguing she has been largely ignored since the label changed leadership. Keeping that in mind, she could be adding fuel to the social media witch hunt because of Jay, and not Beyoncé.
