Karrine Steffans claims she was once Jay Z’s “Becky with the good hair.”

In a lengthy essay penned for XOJane, the Vixen author detailed a sexual romp that occurred before the rapper wed Beyoncé. “Over 15 years ago, I had Beyoncé’s husband,” wrote Steffans. “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, [California]..

Steffans, who’s currently married to former “Scandal” star Columbus Short, went on to explain she was a single mother and a 21-year-old transplant to California, who found fame and fortune as a video vixen. “I jumped at the chance to make $2,500 a day to dance around and look pretty next to the artist — Jay Z,” she said. According to the 37-year-old, it wasn’t long before she linked up with Mr. “Big Pimpin'” himself.

In 1999, Steffans appeared alongside Jay Z in his “Hey Papi” visual. “Chauffeured away from the set, down the winding road, and closer to the shoreline, Jay and I feasted on our attraction to one another — rabidly and quickly. After just a few minutes, I lifted my head from his lap, wiped my lips, and knew we’d made a mistake. This was pre-Yoncé, of course, but the fact is that a Becky is a Becky, and I was the Becky for many men,” Steffans wrote. She went on to explain that she and Hov would see each other frequently over the years that followed, though they never engaged in any intimate activity or spoke of their short-lived hookup in Malibu.

Prior to marrying Short in 2015, Steffans had been linked to a long list of stars, including Bobby Brown and Bill Maher. “They were all my salvation and my destitution. They were my reason and my rationale, my life and my death, and eventually, my fame and my infamy,” she concluded.

Earlier this week, Beyoncé released a full visual album, Lemonade, in which she addressed the numerous rumors of infidelity plaguing her marriage. “He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair,” she sang.

Of course, Steffans isn’t the only vixen rumored to have had an affair with Bey’s hubby. Fashion designer Rachel Roy and British pop star Rita Ora both became targets of the Beyhive this week, after speculation that they too were “Becky with the good hair.”

Both Ora and Roy have since adamantly denied being a homewrecker.
