One week after Beyoncé released her Lemonade visual album, the world is still reeling over "Becky with the good hair" — and one star has come forward to claim the title.
Karrine Steffans, author of The Vixen Manual and wife of former Scandal star Columbus Short, just revealed that she is one of Jay Z's former "Beckys."
The 37-year-old penned a blog on Xo Jane detailing her brief affair with the rapper back in 2000.
"Over 15 years ago, I had Beyoncé’s husband," she writes. "Yes, I was one of Jay Z’s Beckys back in the year 2000 for about three minutes, which is about as long it takes me to satisfy a man in the back of a Maybach while overlooking the beaches of Malibu."

The former music video dancer briefly appeared in Jay Z's 1999 hit "Hey Papi," and is now coming forward after Beyoncé mentioned "Becky" in her new song, "Sorry."
"He only want me when I’m not on there, He better call Becky with the good hair," Beyoncé sings on the track, which has caused fans to speculate over the true identity of the woman.
But while Karrine is a "Becky," she admits she's not the one Beyoncé references.
"This was pre-Yoncé, of course, but the fact is that a Becky is a Becky, and I was the Becky for many men, and they were all my salvation and my destitution," she continues in her blog post. "They were my reason and my rationale, my life and my death, and eventually, my fame and my infamy."
For now, it seems like Becky's true identity will be kept secret for a little longer.
