Beyonce’s sister Solange and husband Jay Z are involved in a real life family feud! Jay Z was physically assaulted by Beyonce’s sister Solange in an elevator after attending the 2014 Met Gala (Theme: Charles James: Beyond Fashion), also known as the Costume Institute Gala or simply, the Met Ball. Beyonce helplessly looked on as two of her loved ones got involved in an ugly fight. Unfortunately for all of them, the said video has been released to the public, for all the world to see!
According to TMZ, Solange was violently kicking and swinging at Jay Z inside an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City (NYC). The elevator’s surveillance video captured the attack, which was obtained by TMZ.
Their bodyguards tried to stop the fight. They tried to control the raging Solange, who was seen aiming at Jay Z again, while he defends himself. Jay Z never tried to hit her back.
As this was all happening in front of her, Beyonce tried not to get involved in it. She never chose a side to take and simply looked on.
The fight continued even as they stepped out of the elevator! This is so intriguing! What could’ve caused Solange to snap at Jay Z, to the point of getting out of her way and picking up a fight with him?
TMZ also stated that during the elevator scene, the bodyguard made an effort to hit the emergency stop switch on the 12th floor to keep the fight as private as possible.
Obviously, there are a lot of speculations regarding the said fight and one of the sources tells US Magazine that Jay Z might have said something and Solange took it the wrong way, causing her to flip out.
Another speculation about the fight that ensued between Jay Z and Solange is from Hollywood Life. Apparently, since Solange and Beyonce are very close and she has always been protective of Beyonce, she is not so happy about the way Jay Z is treating Beyonce and she couldn’t take it anymore, so she snapped.
“Solange doesn’t like the way Jay Z controls Beyonce. Beyonce would never speak up to him or defend herself, so Solange does it. Solange is not afraid of him and is fed up with him calling all the shots in Beyonce’s life,” said an insider EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com.
XXL Mag also reported that the reason for the fight could be that Solange heard Jay Z is attending Rihanna’s post-Met ball party without his wife, Beyonce. Solange wasn’t pleased about the news that she confronted Jay about it, which resulted in the now infamous fight between them.
Rumours are flying everywhere! It’s been said that there has always been tension between the three and it’s not even surprising. In spite of all that, Jay Z and Beyonce were still seen together at a Brooklyn Nets game after the video leaked online. Beyonce and her sister also traveled together to Costa Rica to attend Kelly Rowland’s wedding. That’s good news I guess, hoping that things wont’ get uglier than it already is and that they can work out their differences, if not for them, then at least for Beyonce’s sake.
