Everyone’s still trying to figure out what was REALLY going on with Solange Knowles and Jay-Z in that elevator. Unless you’ve been under a rock, you heard about Beyoncé’s little sister going ballistic on her brother-in-law at the Standard Hotel in New York City after the Met Gala last week.
If the Daily Mail is to be believed, Jay actually started it. Apparently he got mad because two of Solange’s friends kept trying to use his name to get into the party. When he told her that her friends couldn’t do that, she was ready to go. On the way out, Jay said that he wanted to go to Rihanna’s party at Up & Down. He also said that he wouldn’t need extra security because Bey wasn’t joining him. Solange – who seemed drunk and irritated – said, “Why can’t you go home?” She turned to her sister and said, “Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?” He shot back, “You’re one to talk,” and that was all she needed to go off. That’s when they got in the elevator and all hell broke loose.
Another source of contention between Jay and Solange is her career. He promised her that they’d sit down and write a banger, and it hasn’t happened yet. She’s tired of being in the shadows.
Of course, reps for Bey, Jay, and Solange are keeping this on the hush.
In the meantime, as we look at the timeframe between Solange’s fight with Jay-Z and when we actually found out about it, could Beyoncé have given us a clue with an Instagram post? Two days after the Met Gala, she posted this to her page:
