"Erykah Badu is such a hater. Beyoncé has worn braids since the beginning of her career. Erykah does not own braids," a second person speculated about why the "Next Lifetime" artist was upset.

"What is Erykah’s problem with Beyoncé? She shouted her out in a song and Erykah been shady ever since. I’m so confused," an additional person chimed in.

This was not the first time Erykah accused Beyoncé of poaching ideas from her. Last year, the "Hello" musician shared a photo of the "Single Ladies" entertainer in an oversized metallic hat, which was similar to Erykah's signature accessory.

"Hmmm. I guess I’m everybody stylist," she wrote alongside a photo of the hitmaker on stage in a familiar look to her own.

Despite Beyoncé's fellow diva pleading for her husband, 54, to steer her away from her vision, he likely will never tell his wife how to producer her art, especially after weathering a few rocky years in their marriage.

"Her bringing up the cheating is like sticking it to him," a source spilled about the Grammy winner, 42, talking about Jay's alleged infidelity in her music. "It’s like he’ll never live it down. But she would never leave him — they’ve built an empire together, and there’s too much at stake."

"They’re one of those couples who are worth more together than apart," the insider claimed. "It’s almost as if their marriage has evolved into a business partnership, and they’re just friends now who basically lead separate lives. So whatever tension there may be behind closed doors, they seem to go out of their way to not let the public see it. Beyoncé was so young when she met Jay-Z [at 18] — she idolized him — then he shattered her world."
