NEW YORK — When life handed Beyonce lemons, she made … watermelon water?

WTRMLN WTR, a startup beverage company that makes cold-pressed watermelon juice, announced Tuesday that Beyonce has joined as an investor.

Co-founder and creative director Jody Levy said in a statement that the entertainment icon, whose latest album is “Lemonade,” is “aligned with many of our company’s core values, especially our commitment to empowerment.”

Beyonce said in a statement that her investment is also “an investment in female leaders, fitness, American farmers and the health of people and our planet.”
