Stop what you're doing and give this your full attention: Amber Rose has claimed Gwyneth Paltrow is the now-infamous 'Becky with the good hair' from Beyoncé's Lemonade.

And Gwyneth isn't having it.

Let's recap real quick: If you cast your mind back to 2016, you'll recall Beyonce's single 'Sorry", in which she sang: "He only want me when I'm not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair."

Everyone took this to mean JAY-Z had cheated with a woman who has good hair, prompting the Internet to explode with theories about who 'Becky' was and what SHE DAMN DID.

The previous potential 'Becky' was designer Rachel Roy, who was targeted by vitriolic Bey fans shortly after Lemonade was released, prompting her to issue a stern denial.

Now, model Amber Rose has us all obsessed again after claiming on a podcast hosted by Heidi and Spencer Pratt (side note: what?) that Gwyneth is Becky.

"I definitely think that Gwyneth Paltrow is 'Becky with the good hair'," Amber said. "I really feel like she's the one who was, like, fucking JAY Z."

Gwyneth shut that suggestion down REAL QUICK, with a rep for the actress telling People the claim is "completely absurd and 100 percent false".

A source later told People Amber was "just joking". Quite the joke.

It's a pretty wild claim given Gwyneth has been friends with Bey and Jay for a LONG time. That being said, they haven't been spotted together in a while.

Very compelling stuff, but the questions remains: Is Gwyneth's hair really good enough for her to be Becky?

Let's be real.

Maybe all this is just a clever advertising for a new Goop haircare line?
