Beyoncé repeating history?

BEYONCÉ'S former manager isn't surprised over allegations Jay Z has been cheating on her.

Brian 'Kenny' Moore, who managed the 'If I Were A Boy' singer in the 1990s, claims it was only a matter of time until she was cheated on because she is just "reliving" the heartache her mother Tina Knowles endured during her marriage to now ex-husband Mathew Knowles.

He told the Daily Mail Online: "That's how it appears to be. Beyoncé's reliving her mother's position. Her father's cheating is well known and just because you're Beyoncé, it doesn't mean the cycle will change.

"Most girls marry guys exactly like their fathers. If you have an a**hole father, the daughter will usually marry an a**hole guy. Beyoncé saw the infidelity her mother put up with and it was hard on her. But Beyoncé, being in the same position, I'm damn sure she wouldn't get a divorce.

"Some in their camp told me Jay Z isn't cheating but if he has, it would be the second coming of the father and nobody needs that."

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old singer - who has four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with the 'Empire State of Mind' hitmaker - sent tongues wagging when she referenced a "Becky with the good hair" in her new album 'Lemonade'.

Rita Ora, 24, was one of the names thrown into the mix after she posted a saucy snap on Snapchat in a lemon print bikini and a necklace with the letter 'J' hanging around her neck.

However, she took to Twitter to slam the claims, insisting she has "nothing but the utmost respect" for Beyoncé.

She wrote: "I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyoncé. Let's continue enjoying Lemonade."

Her father Mathew also refused to speculate on who she is referring to, adding: "There's no way we can get into the mind of Beyoncé. Only Beyoncé can answer specifically who she was talking to ... I would rather not get into speculation. My answer is I don't know."
