A video went viral over the weekend of Harvey chatting with Jay at Roc Nation’s The Brunch, which occurred Saturday ahead of the Grammys that Sunday. During the star-studded event, Harvey made time to catch up with the rapper and fans took issue with her apparently flirtatious response to his statement.
It’s not clear what Jay said, but Harvey tilted her head ever so slightly and said, “thank you.” While the move may have appeared innocent to some, members of Bey’s fanbase, known as the BeyHive, tore into the star and accused her of making a move on Jay.
“I just know Lori Harvey better not smile at Jay Z like that no more…”
“He’s married honey…..”
“so u aspire to be like a thot lady heroine your mom…? you don’t follow Beyoncé yet u go to her party and smile at her husband what the f— do u think its gonna happen…”
“You better call Becky with the good hair! Sorry bad hair😂😂😂😂”
Additionally, many fans left comments on Harvey’s newest Instagram photo littered with bee emoji.
Still, not everyone was convinced that Harvey flirted.
“So human beings can’t smile at each other now y’all reaching 😂😂”
“Soooooo lemmegitthisstraight…. y’all really think Lori Harvey would be out here flirting with Jay Z… and then post it to her IG account?….. sure, ok let’s… go… with… that…?”
“This whole lori harvey thing and the way folks are attacking her is so confusing to me. You really think she tried to flirt with jay z on camera with folks right there who could hear everything???”
The BeyHive’s concerns may stem from Harvey publicly playing the field lately. The star was elevated into the viral stratosphere last week after she deleted a photo on her Instagram page with Trey Songz, whom she had gone official with. However, after a woman flirted with Songz in a club over Super Bowl weekend, Harvey dumped him. Not long after, she was caught making out with five-time championship winning Formula 1 race car driver Lewis Hamilton. She was also seen partying it up with Diddy’s son Justin Combs and the rapper-mogul’s surrogate son Quincy Brown.
Meanwhile, Harvey has shuttered her Instagram comments and let folks know she’s also a fan of Bey.
“Meanwhile I’m part of the Beyhive 😩😂,” she said on the social media site.
