AceShowbiz - Karrine Steffans makes a shocking confession. The author who is estranged from her husband Columbus Short recalls hooking up with Jay-Z during her early career as a music video vixen. She even calls herself his "Becky" in a new interview.
"Over 15 years ago, I had Beyonce's husband," she reveals to XO Jane. "Yes, I was one of Jay Z's Beckys back in the year 2000 for about three minutes, which is about as long it takes me to satisfy a man in the back of a Maybach while overlooking the beaches of Malibu."
"He was a long-time friend of my cousin, Chuck, and after a call from him, Jay knew to keep me close, making sure I got loads of camera time. This was the beginning of my stint as a video girl, and one day Jay and I stole away for some time alone toward the end of the day."
Karrine continues, "Chauffeured away from the set, down the winding road, and closer to the shoreline, Jay and I feasted on our attraction to one another - rabidly and quickly. After just a few minutes, I lifted my head from his lap, wiped my lips, and knew we'd made a mistake."
"Over the next few years, I would see Jay again, as I became close with his then business partner Damon Dash. We never mentioned our Malibu melee and acted as if it never happened," the mother of two adds. "My cousin Chuck would be livid."
"This was pre-Yonce, of course, but the fact is that a Becky is a Becky, and I was the Becky for many men, and they were all my salvation and my destitution. They were my reason and my rationale, my life and my death, and eventually, my fame and my infamy."
"Eventually, I would soon become the wife of several men - three to be exact - each one more disappointing than the last. One I married for convenience, one I married out of fear, and the last I married for love."
