Lemonade is still a hot topic for some and the rumors around the album haven’t died down. Pretty much anyone who has ever been connected to Beyoncé or Jay Z has been dragged into the hoopla. 

Damon Dash recently spoke with Access Hollywood Live and told host Kit Hoover and guest co-host Arsenio Hall that initially the rumors didn’t bother him. Despite his ex-wife Rachel Roy — who’s rumored to be Becky with the good hair — being dragged by the BeyHive, Dash said he wasn’t bothered by all the mess until people started attacking his daughters.

“The only issue I had is them putting pressure on my children. And for me it’s the history between me and Jay and me being his partner at the time in Roc-A-Fella and Rocawear and all that and his best friend. Of course on a human level, it would bother me.”

Dash continued by condemning bullying, specifically when it comes to children. “The worst disrespect of all time is to disrespect someone’s children. The way I was feeling about it, is that anyone who would harass a child is a coward. I have been in rap for a while but I have never had anyone disrespect my child.”
