Speaking recently on Spencer and Heidi Pratt’s podcast, “Make Speidi Famous Again,” the model claimed that Paltrow was the mysterious “Becky with the good hair” that Beyoncé, 36, name-checked as husband Jay-Z’s mistress in the song “Sorry” from her Lemonade album.
Amber said: “They were like friends, and then, like, you don’t see Gwyneth Paltrow with Beyoncé anymore. But like Beyoncé’s still with Jay.”
However, after Gwyneth, 45, slammed the allegations as “completely absurd and 100 percent false,” Amber admitted it was simply a joke that went wrong.
She told DailyMail.com: “I feel bad because that’s someone’s personal life, and it was just me joking about something that I don’t know anything about at all.
“I never want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Even though I don’t know them personally, it’s just not the kind of personality that I have. And for Gwyneth to be like, ‘Why did she say that? That’s not true.’ It’s like, ‘Why did I say that?’ I don’t know anything. I was just speaking as a consumer.”
Jay-Z has previously spoken about his infidelity in a revealing interview but insisted that he and Beyoncé have overcome their marriage troubles.
He said: “The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused and then have to deal with yourself.
“You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions.
“So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. In my case, like, it’s deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity…”
He also hinted that divorce could have been an option but acknowledged that therapy had helped them come through the drama together.
Jay-Z said: “You know, most people walk away, and, like, the divorce rate is like 50 percent or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves.”
