Beyonce’s sister Solange Knowles went off on Bey’s husband Jay-Z while the singer looked on. It all went down after the Met Gala in an elevator. TMZ obtained video of the incident, but audio was omitted from the publication.
Since, we have only heard speculation as to what might’ve been said that would set Solange off. New York Daily News reports that it was Solange’s anger at Jay for wanting to attend Rihanna’s party without his loving wife that did him in.
One source said, “Solange flipped out over something Jay had said, that she took the wrong way. She took it too hard or too far. Not sure what it was, but she greatly overreacted.”
After all three of them left the elevator, Solange lead the group and Bey and Jay followed behind. Jay-Z was seen with a stunned expression on his face likely because the attack was unexpected. Another source said, “Beyonce tried to stay out of it. She does not approve of violence. They are trying to put the situation past them now.”
After the fallout of the incident, Solange deleted all of her family photos of the Destiny’s Child singer except for one.
Strangely enough, Solange also got into it with Rachel Roy prior to her physical beef with her brother-in-law. Meanwhile, there are reports that Jay is miffed about the video’s release because he doesn’t want his family’s reputation tarnished. A source said, “Jay-Z is not about to sit around and let this video of an internal fight between him and a member of his family tarnish his reputation or the family’s. Whatever happened should have remained between them as Solange likely thought she had a more than reasonable expectation of privacy, given that she was at a hotel and in an elevator.”
The source added, “Hov cannot believe this private moment has now been made public because of someone who was looking to make a quick buck. Now he is out for blood and will have the last laugh in this matter — even if it means taking the Standard Hotel to court!”
Could you imagine what would happen if we learned that it was Beyonce who leaked the video to the media? Wouldn’t that be something?!?
