Dame Dash is never one to bite his tongue.

In an interview with Grazia, a weekly women’s magazine based in Italy, Dash reportedly lashes out at Jay Z and Beyoncé for their lack of support over the controversy surrounding Rachel Roy and the “Becky with the good hair” line from LEMONADE.

The new issue will hit newsstands on Tuesday, but gossip websites have already published several quotes from the story. A cover line reads: “Beyonce Is a Coward: Hip-Hop Star Turns on Singer Over Cheating Scandal.”

"They are cowards. They should have stepped up and said something."

Roy is also Dash’s ex-wife. According to the Daily Mail, Dash reveals in his interview that their daughters Tallulah and Ava have been harassed on social media when the rumors of Jay Z cheating exploded.

“Adults can go and harass a kid on behalf of an R&B singer?” he said. “The trolls should have been put in jail for that, it was crazy.”

Roy denied she was associated with the Becky Beyoncé is referring to in "Sorry." In a statement to People, where she also clarified her “good hair don’t’ care” Instagram post, she said, “I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that. There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors."

When Dash was asked if the rumors were true about a past relationship with Jay Z and Roy, he was cryptic with his response. “'I don't care what Rachel did, I don't agree with a lot of things she does,” he said.

In August, TMZ reported Roy was a target of a massive attack when her Gmail and iCloud accounts were hacked. She also had her cell phone changed without her permission. In court documents obtained by TMZ, she believed the harassment began after the Beyoncé line. LAPD also believed members of the BeyHive were responsible.
