Solange Knowles violently attacked Jay-Z at the Met Gala: what happened?


TMZ has just published an absolutely dramatic video of Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay-Z in an elevator just after the Met Gala. TMZ “obtained” the surveillence video from the elevator. You can’t hear anything, but you can see that Solange gets up in Jay’s face and she seems to be shouting at him and having a full-blown hissy fit. She begins to strike him with her hands and he tries to block her. His bodyguard pulls Solange away and she begins to kick Jay. Beyonce is there the whole time – at first she’s standing back, seemingly wordlessly, then at one point she moves in between her husband and her sister. Here’s the video:

TMZ notes that at one point, the bodyguard hits the emergency stop on the elevator, “presumably to keep the fight private.” After this altercation, Jay, Bey and Solange left the building together, then Beyonce and Solange got into one car and Jay got into an SUV. You can see that video here.

I don’t know what to tell you. This is high drama, and I cannot even imagine why Solange would be that pissed off at her brother-in-law. I mean, what she did was straight-up assault/battery. Yikes.

    Perhaps all the cheating Jay does is starting to make Beys family angry?

    • Pix says:

      I’m going to guess that Jay-Z did something real dirty by the way Beyonce is sitting back and not making a move to intervene. Jay-Z is no angel and i hope he gets exposed.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        Bey just stands there so calmly! She doesn’t even flinch when solange’s purse nearly hits her in the face.

      • MCraw says:

        I’ll always remember this interview Solange did right after Bey got married. She was promoting some album and made it clear to the press she did not want to talk about her sister and recent marriage. Her interview on Fox 5 (I think, it’s been a while) via satellite was on right after commercial and I guess the anchors were going over what they would ask with a producer. Their mics were on and she thought they were live. Anyways, all I know as a viewer I see Solange go OFF on them about “not asking her about her brother” in the nastiest voice ever. The anchors were stunned and let her know they were talking off air about not asking her that and that she had officially confirmed that bey was indeed married to Jay on air. Solo acted like nothing was wrong and put her sweet voice and did the interview as if nothing happened. She’s always been a nasty piece of work, regardless of a “good” reason.

        OT, so what do we think is “the reason” for this? Jay just signed Rihanna to Roc Nation… We all remember THOSE rumors. Did he buy a house and pay off Matthews baby mama so she keeps Beys name out her mouth? The girl was talking to anyone who would listen and pose for sad photos and all of a sudden… Nothing. Whatever it is… It’s juicy!

      • Mel M says:

        @stef leppard
        Totally agree, totally bizarre. Then she just bends down to pick up the flying purse like it’s no big deal. Where’s Sasha fierce when ya need her!!!

      • nicegirl says:

        That’s what I was wondering, Mel M! Where the heck is Sasha Fierce??

    • Linnie says:

      “all the cheating”, say what?

      • kri says:

        HAHAHAHA! Maybe she is furious that he made her wear that Dynasty-era living room curtain and that wig from Rosemary’s Baby. This. Made.My.Day. And oh, I just so admire the way Beyonce stands there like KK on the Vogue cover.

      • Murphy says:

        Oh Please. He’s a dog.

        Which is why all those memes about their awesome marriage pisses me off so much. “want to check my phone, you got it”etc. etc. BS.

      • FLORC says:

        It’s no secret Jay cheats. Bey works lots and is very career driven. I think she understands being Mrs. Carter is good for her career and social life. Not that things were bad before, but her career has been on a whole new level since they got together.
        Jay cheats and i’m guessing Bey knows about it.
        Remember the Super Bowl dressing room incident? Also rumored to have sparked over Jay’s cheating ways.

      • HH says:

        @FLORC – Please dish about the Super Bowl dressing room incident? I haven’t heard about it.

      • homegrrrl says:

        Maybe that explains the wet chair dance for her husband on live TV. Definitely the delusional desperation of a woman whose man can’t be faithful.

      • Addison says:

        I normally don’t care about this couple but reading the headline intrigued me to see what this was about. Oh WOW! If this is really how this couple treat each other this is very sad. I am most sad for their child, that they don’t care that she is in the room and a witness to all of this. She is so small now but if they behave like this now they will when she is older.

        I’m sorry, but even a person who has no mental issues can act in the way that the sister acted. Why even say that she has mental illness. If she is bi-polar it’s not like these things just go away. For some people even medication is not a complete fix. It is a constant struggle.

        All in all very shocking story. If they do speak to each other the way the blind item says why even be together. It makes no sense. No marriage is perfect but if you are talking to each other like this there is clearly no respect. Time to get help or get divorced. Your kid deserves better than to live in such a hostile home. In fact home is where you should be at peace. I don’t see this being very peaceful.

      • phlyfiremama says:

        OK, so that Blind Gossip solved item explains a LOT about this entire situation. Obviously, B has been physically/verbally/emotionally abused repeatedly by J~that explains why she didn’t intervene, if she had then SHE would bear the repercussions of daring to interfere. That is CLASSIC when a person is being abused. Ask any police officer the one scenario they DON’T want to be involved with and it is a domestic violence/dispute issue almost invariably, due to the emotional explosiveness of those situations. One other element that is classic in abuse cases is distancing the abused person from their friends and relatives as a means of control. So if Solange was striking back defending B, than B would be the person J will take it out on later~he CAN’T take it out on S, he doesn’t have that kind of personal or social power to make her take it.
        B, you better run girl~you in DANGER!!!

      • FLORC says:

        Normally I am no fan of Blind Items, but that altercation was repeated by other outlets post SuperBowl. Not many cared though. There were bigger stories at the time.

        IMO Kelly Rowland is the best to find out if these Bey stories are at all real. Kelly NEVER talks, but you can read her fairly well. When asked about the Bey drama with Jay-Z she had no funny comments or anything to say. She got visibly upset and walked faster. Any other time asking about Bey she would respond with jokes or comment and laugh.

      • HH says:

        @Jen – Thanks for the BlindGossip link. And wow! It all makes sense.

      • HH says:

        TMZ now has the full 3:31 length video. Boy… It’s a doozy.

      • Dommeh Dearest says:

        Has no one heard about Jay-Z and Rihanna? Really?

    • Liv says:

      Holy sh*t, this is crazy! I just hope that Solange’s mad about something he did, because I love her so much. I always found it weird though, that Beyonce for example thanked her parents, Jay and Solange’s son at an awards show, but not Solange. She’s publishing tons of pictures of her, Jay, Blue or Solange’s son, but rarely some with Solange.

      Anyway, it’s unbelievable that they caught them on tape and I’m super curious how they are going to handle the situation.

      • Khadijah says:

        Lmao at all the spicing going on in the gossip kitchen. Beyonce was just at a Solange concert. She even rides in the same car as her even after the bs she has just pulled (yes, ladies kicking and throwing punches for any reason other than self defense is bs…..even if you are hitting a man).

        I think Solange has a problem. Whether its drugs or a psychiatric issue I dont know. But no one in that lift seems surprised that she is acting like that. I wouldnt be surprised if she is bipolar tbh.

      • Dani says:

        Yes let’s just blame Solange’s outburst on drugs or mental issues! How convenient! Because Jay can do no wrong ever!

        Give me a break. He’s a pig and he and his wife both know it. Just a matter of time before the reasoning of the (probably deserved) assault come out, exposing him.

      • Dee says:

        Five days ago, the day after the Met Gala?, Beyonce posted a quote on Instagram about choosing friends wisely and the Lord giving strenght to separate yourself from people who are bad influences on you etc. I have a feeling she isn’t talking about Jay-Z. The plot thickens!

      • Wilma says:

        As I understand it Solange has some mental health problems, I thought she was bipolar. Some people here say that doesn’t make you act like this, I don’t know, probably not everyone reacts and acts the same way. My sister is bipolar and does act like this. She was diagnosed a year ago and her mood has not been stable yet and she fights my two brothers all the time.

      • Sabrine says:

        Of course he cheats. Beyonce would be extremely naive if she thinks he’s going to go the rest of his life with her as his only sex partner, not in their world. He would be discreet and he likely pays well to keep it that way. As for the fight, Solange probably thinks he disrespected her or her sister in some way and she is very angry about it.

        If she’s bi-polar, then it’s a whole different story.

      • qwerty says:

        Being bipolar does not make you act like this. You switch between periods of mania and depression but these last months or at least weeks, you’re not a walking ticking time bomb whose mood changes every 5 minutes, that’s just not what being bipolar is about. Now borderline, that’s another story altogether. I’ve seen a borderline person lash out on her best friend like that just cause she wouldn’t agree with what she was saying. Crazy mood swings all the time.

        I don’t like how a lot of people assume Solange must be cray cray just cause she lost her shit like that. It was probably a response to something upsetting, I mean do you really believe she’s like that and we’re only hearing about it now? If it was a man, would everyone assume he’s crazy and overreacting?

      • Exactly Qwerty. People aren’t allowed to just lose the rag any more. You have to have a diagnosis. This is what losing your shit looks like. Pure and simple.

      • Delorb says:

        He showed a lot of restraint. Plenty of people would have reacted differently. Especially if they thought they were in the privacy of an elevator. I’ll say this though, if I’d lost my grip and my sister just stood there, she’d be the next person I’d pummel.

        I hate it when people want to take the high road when I’m angry, but expect me to join them in their crazy. And will go off on me if I don’t.


        You’re right. Sometimes you just lose it. No mental defect or drugs, just the wrong person saying the wrong thing at just the wrong moment. And judging my his posture, I’d say he realized this soon after entering the elevator.

      • mytbean says:

        I hope Solange goes to jail or intensive therapy. I have zero tolerance for people who “just lose it”. No one was in physical danger in that elevator. Jay-Z may be a truly awful person but she just physically assaulted him.

        For some reason some people believe that being verbally disrespected or provoked is just cause for a physical reaction. Sorry, but “just losing it” is just an oversimplified way of trying to dodge responsibility for violent behavior. To me it’s no different than someone trying to shrug off the awful things they might say or do when intoxicated. Blaming intoxication from alcohol, drugs, lust, rage… none of these are acceptable for physical assault.

        If she’s not mentally ill then, at the very least, she needs anger management therapy – she needs to learn healthier and less damaging ways of dealing with her emotional responses.

        Charles Saatchi and Chris Brown acted out of rage too – Solange is no more right than they were.

    • mercy says:

      That was my first thought – she was standing up for her sister, or saying something her sister can’t. Second thought was he demeaned Solange in some way and Beyonce sympathised with her, but didn’t want to take sides in public.

    • Talie says:

      Wendy Williams spilled the tea of this sh*tshow of cheating and lies long ago. She’s the only mainstream personality who does.

      • aquarius64 says:

        Bet Wendy spills this new pot of tea on an upcoming show.

      • Ashley says:

        Wendy doesn’t know Beyonce or Jay Z or their married life. . She repeats what blind items say or mediatakeout Lol

      • Delorb says:

        Wendy the transvestite hates WOMEN. I’d be surprised if she blamed Jay in any of this. He/she NEVER blames the man. Secretly she’s a mean girl/boy, who was probably teased in school and hasn’t gotten over it.

        As for Jay and his cheating, give me a break. Do you guys know the volume of women out there who seem to make it their life’s work to sleep with married men? The man doesn’t even need to be famous. Should Jay turn them down? Yes! Would many men on this planet turn them down? Hells NO!

        One of my friends made the mistake of talking about her personal life in detail to her stalker (I say she was a stalker because she ate and wore whatever my friend. I’m not kidding. She’d order the exact same thing, including the particulars). The stalker then sought out my friends man and slept with him. Men may be dogs, but some women are just bitches.

      • Fifi says:


        Your friends stalker may have been a bitch but your friends man is even worse. The stalker may have sought out the man but she didnt sleep with him, they slept together, BIG difference.

      • CoolWhipLite says:

        I know a lot of people dislike Wendy, but I like her and appreciate it when she avoids the celeb ass-kissing that most chat show abide by.

      • Delorb says:


        Yes, he was a dog, but he was spoken for. The onus was on the stalker to keep her legs closed. But many women don’t do that. They know that the man is married or dating someone else and still step to him.

      • Lou says:

        What? Delorb, he should have the strength to keep his own d*** in his pants. Men are not incapable of saying no.

        I hate the idea of just blaming the other woman, and not the man. Yes, she’s at fault for trying to sleep with someone who’s in a relationship. But the onus is on the man. He is able to make his own decisions.

      • qwerty says:

        I love how you start with talking about how Wendy hates women and always blame them for everything and then go and blame some chick for a man cheating on his partner. Hilarious.

    • Dee says:

      I love how in the second video on TMZ Solange and Jay look pissed but Beyonce manages to give the photographers a giant smile before climbing in the car. The Queen of Facades, that one.

      Edit: Wrong place :/

    • Merritt says:

      This was my thought too. Also there is a pretty gross video of Jay-Z, where he is sitting getting interviewed, while two women are having sex next to him. I have a feeling that things like that are a common occurrence for him.

    • Milla says:

      looks like something happened at the Met Ball that made Solange that upset.
      If she was wasted, don’t you people think her sister would try to calm her down?
      With Jay past everything is possible.

    • mia girl says:

      Are you suggesting Beyonce uses a surrogate to kick a Jay’s ass?
      No way. I’m shocked. ;)

    • andypandy says:

      Maybe he made Solange wear that dress ???

    • kimber says:

      I’m just glad someone smacked him bc I’ve wanted to for a while now for releasing that song with justin Timberlake last summer. God I hate that song it’s hirrid and will remain nameless to me.

    • homegrrrl says:

      My question is, was the above photo from before or after the altercation? Her dress is all bunched up, her coat is ripped at the seams, and her hair looks pulled out!

    • Mark says:

      So he deserves to be attacked? That so hypocritical imagine if the bother of jay-z attacked beyonce for cheating?

    • Size Does Matter says:

      This is on mainstream news, CNN and ABC. I don’t see how Beyonce, Jay-Z and Solange can just act like it didn’t happen. Someone is going to need to comment.

  2. Erinn says:

    Interesting that Bey left with her sister though, eh?
    Me thinks Jay is in the doghouse for whatever happened, because if I had a sibling attacking my husband and I didn’t agree with the sibling, I sure as hell wouldn’t be letting it happen.

  3. JuJuBee says:

    Wow. Oh to be a fly on that elevator wall. I need audio!!

    • TX says:

      Seriously!! I wonder what on Earth got her so upset. She looks enraged. My first thought was maybe shes drunk? Because B doesnt really do anything until the very end. Like, they’re just letting her rage because theres nothing they can do about it if she irrational…..? But then I saw the video of her coming out of the building and she looks ok (mad, but not necessarily hammered). Who knows. I’m sure TMZ will have some whitewashed version of the event from someones camp soon.

      • idk says:

        The bodyguard must get paid very well. Not only to protect them physically, but to keep all their personal drama private.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        I respectfully disagree with the drunk idea. The way she walked onto the elevator was very controlled – did not seem drunk at all. She waited for the doors to close and then let him have it. Drunks don’t have that kind of self control.

        I agree Beyonce did not seem to do or say much. At one point it even looks like Jay-Z started to go after Solange and the bodyguard (?) turned her away from him.

        I’ve read he is not nice to Beyonce and keeps her on a very short chain. Strange relationship. Anybody know more?

        I doubt we’ll ever know what happened but I wish Jay-Z would be exposed. That’s a biography even I would read.

      • idk says:

        @ Belle Epoch

        I don’t think she was drunk. There is video of her getting into the car with Beyonce after the fight. She wasn’t stumbling or anything. I have a feeling Jay and Solange never got along. Solange seems like the type not to take sh*t and Beyonce seems like the type to let her sister fight for her instead. There is some deep seeded anger going on here. Who knows what it is. I think Jay and Beyonce’s team are going to make people believe Solange has an alcohol/drug problem and that’s why she attacked Jay. They will make her take the blame. Hopefully Solange won’t let that happen.

      • HH says:

        @Belle – Good point on waiting until the door closed. But if you go over to the TMZ website they have an additional video of them leaving. Notice how Jay-Z attempts to get into the same car with Beyonce and Solange AND TRIES TO GET IN BEFORE BEYONCE DOES. The bodyguard stopped him. I thought that was interesting.

      • TX says:

        @belle good point about her waiting for the doors to close!

      • Jojoann says:

        @HH watch it again. The Bodyguard is shielding them and he assumes that Jay is getting into the limo with them. You can see Jay explain to him that he intends to ride in the SUV.

      • als says:

        @ Belle Epoch – I totally agree, she was not drunk, she even managed to compose hrself while walking to the car.

      • HH says:

        @Jojoann – That’s not what I’m getting from the video. I see the bodyguard ushering Jay to another car. I guess time will tell :)

      • Ashley says:

        idk Solange, by her own confession last year, does have mental/drug problem. She even cancelled her tour in Europe

    • Eleonor says:

      That’s could be the must juicy gossip since the K-Stew Minicooper.

  4. Sayrah says:

    Ahhhh! I’ve been waiting for you to post this story. I hate commenting on TMZ but wow this is crazy!

    What could that have been about? Props to Jay for keeping seemingly calm during it.

  5. Dorothy#1 says:

    He probably cheated on Bey and Solange was sticking up for her sis!!

  6. dromedary says:

    We need some made-up audio for this. Anyone feeling creative today?

  7. Meg says:

    My first thought is that you read online of Jay z cheating a lot, that solange was upset at him about that. maybe he’s becoming more brazen about it and not even trying to hide it from beyonce or something and that’s what pisses her off?
    I’m sure this is very very bad in beyonce’s eyes that this is coming out. she wants her squeaky clean marriage to remain just that to the public. if you look hard enough online you can find video of jay z being awful to fans, hitting women, etc. but you have to dig online to find it, this was on TMZ so it’s not hidden

  8. chloeee says:

    I saw this story elsewhere, so glad you touched on it. I didn’t care about these two before but am definitely intrigued now. Never believed any rumors about them either but now it’s obvious there’s SOMETHING going on. Like you said Kaiser this isn’t just yelling, she’s out for blood.

  9. HH says:

    Man…. TMZ… They’re always on it. This is one of the rare videos where all I can think is OMG… OMG…OMG. I can’t wait for the full story.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      There are always on it because they ilegally tap courthouses, hospitals, and bribe people to gather information. TMZ is completely corrupt, and while it has gone without consequence up to now, I think at some point they need to be called on it and there need to be legal consequences.

      • HH says:

        True. From that paparazzi article in Rolling Stone a couple weeks ago, they are quite dubious.

      • aenflex says:

        As long as there are people salivating over what TMZ digs up, (side eye to everyone who reads gossip blogs, myself included), they will never stop. Why should they, we love it?

      • Yep–celebs getting pap’d at the local LA airports–we know why. Because they get a DAILY list of celebs that are going to be walking through those doors.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Why should they stop?
        They released that Michael Jackson was dead before the information was supposed to be released, before he even got to the hospital. If that was your loved one, wouldn’t you want the information to be handled in accordance with HIPPA laws? Letting family know before the general public?

        They planted a bug (tiny microphone) on the judge’s bench, the prosecutor’s and the defense lawyer’s tables in a Stevie Wonder extortion trial. They found that the microphones were transmitting to a company owned by TMZ. Think of all of the bugging that has happened that was left undiscovered?

        I am entertained by gossip, but there is so much information available by legal means that I would be completely fine if I never heard the stuff that was gathered illegally.

      • zut alors! says:

        It makes it even more amazing Angelina was able to keep her surgeries private in the face of all this intrusion.

      • LAK says:

        No point being pissed at TMZ whilst simultaneously enjoying the fruits of their labours.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        LAK, I don’t enjoy what they put out there that is illegally obtained. I don’t enjoy it when they share private medical information about celebritites. It is over the line. I also know that they misrepresent legal documents all the time. Recently, there was a matter that they COMPLETELY misrepresented and it could have had very dangerous consequences.

        And to be clear, I am not talking about the TMZ stories about celebs at LAX or coming out of Mr. Chow. I am talking about their access to confidential information like medical records or legal proceedings. You might enjoy it, but claim that for yourself.

      • LAK says:

        Tiffany :) : that’s some fine hair splitting.

        If you didn’t enjoy gossip, companies like TMZ wouldn’t exist.

        Which incidentally is bankrolled by Warner Brothers and I don’t see you boycotting Warner Brothers output.

        Yes, the same company that beings you Harry Potter also brings you gossip, whether medical files, harassing celebrities going about their business and children – see Suri Cruise.

        I’m not going to be a hypocrite about it, and if I objected i’d boycott the lot including this website.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I don’t think Legal/Illegal is fine hair splitting at all. I think the difference is quite clear and distinct.

        I think you know that TMZ’s business doesn’t hinge on whether my specific set of eyeballs goes to their website, so I think you know you are exaggerating when you say that if I didn’t enjoy gossip, TMZ wouldn’t exist. Clearly my personal habit of not going to their site doesn’t change things for them or their parent company. You are completely entitled to endorse TMZ and their invasion and manipulation into private medical and legal information, but myself, I am not going to condone that. You can have your own set of standards and I will have mine.

      • Delorb says:

        Well said LAK,

        I enjoy gossip and celebrity gossip in particular. I have no sacred cows. Everyone should be up for review, IMO. If a celebrity goes on and on about their children or puts them in the limelight, then they’re fair game too.

        @Tiffany, so you’re okay with gossip, just not gossip obtained illegally. Hate to break it to you, but the majority of gossip that is obtained is illegal or shady. If we were to make that distinction, then nothing will get out, except for what the celebrities want to get out.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Delorb, I disagree. There are countless interviews on TV, in magazines, red carpet appearances, set photos and especially tweets and instagram posts that are the basis of the majority of gossip on sites like Celebitchy.

        I find it so telling of the times we live in that people are acting like, “invading another human being’s medical privacy? Pfff! Who cares!” Do you understand the full gravity of that position?

      • Tiffany :) says:

        To further my point…A casual glance at Page 1 and Page 2 of Celebitchy shows that only 1 story, this one, has illegally obtained information as the root of the story. All other 21 stories are based on interviews, red carpets, tv show/movies and social media.

      • Delorb says:


        The gossip that is posted on the sites you mention are SECOND hand. They all use someone else digging up the ‘good’ stuff that they then spread (as all gossip is), meanwhile pretending their hands are clean. That allows people like you to claim that ‘this’ gossip site is okay, but ‘that’ site is not. Its the same gutter. And if you’re going to wallow in one, you may as well wallow in the other.

        How do you know that something was illegally obtained? TMZ has been around for years. They have lawyers who cover their butts. No way would they release anything that could come back on them.

        BTW, who’s medical history was violated by this story? No one from TMZ said this girl is off her meds or that she even needs meds.

    • Talie says:

      This will open the floodgates — I have no doubt the next story will be about Jay-Z having an affair or has a child with another woman. Something crazy. Queen B must be boiling right now.

    • Rockymtnprincess says:

      Harvey is a lawyer… :)
      TMZ is awful but that being said a I check them out a couple times week, so I’m just as awful. The only pic I refused to look at was Whitney’s bath water…I mean come on…that was just really bad.

  10. Janet says:

    Beyonce left with her sister after her sister attacked her husband?! Jay, you in trouble now!

  11. thinkaboutit says:

    Everyone else seemed remarkably calm. Maybe she’s prone to outbursts like this? Maybe drank too much? The only drama was that of Solange. My guess is she was drunk and Beyonce went with her to make sure she got home safely. The way she stands in front of her husband during the attack was like picking sides in a way that wouldn’t provide more fury from her sister. Didn’t look at all like she was on Solange’s side. All in all, very bizarre.

    • LadyJane says:

      Because they are well practiced in the art of the public facade. Look how serene Bey looks exiting that elevator. That is the most disturbing aspect of all.

      • Jojoann says:

        I dont understand you @LadyJane. You are in a public place with your only sibling and your spouse. There is a bodyguard present. Your sibling attacks your spouse. Do you intervene and risk creating the impression that you are taking a side and thus escalate the conflict or do you allow the bodyguard to contain the situation which is what he is trained to do anyway. Then handle matters in a more fitting setting when the attacker is calmer??

        From what I see, Beyonce does step in when her sister kicks her husband. She actually places herself between them and then returns back to the corner when Solanges leg is contained. She then has some words with Jay at the very end of the tape. Look carefully.

        I feel like I just entered the Twilight Zone with some of these comments, seriously.

      • snowflake says:

        what are they supposed to do, come screaming and fighting out of the elevator so they present a “real” image”? I wouldn’t put my business out on the street, famous or not. that’ s not fake.

  12. Anon says:

    Love all the comments already intimating he somehow ‘deserved it’ for allegedly cheating on Beyonce. If the genders were reversed no way the behavior would be excused, for any reason – and everyone would be outraged.

  13. Amanda says:

    Is she ok mentally? This video makes me concerned she has some untreated disorder.

  14. Diana says:

    Something awful went down to provoke that attack. What happened??????

  15. blue marie says:

    Wonder if it’s cause he told her she looked like a giant peach? I dunno, how did it go so long without it being reported sooner? Did she throw her purse at him? All these questions I need answers to..

    Although it’s probably something like he made a comment she didn’t like while stepping into the elevator and she got pissed and smacked at him. It has to be something like that otherwise wouldn’t have Beyonce stepped in?

  16. Marty says:

    Whatever happened, Beyonce doesn’t look surprised by the fight.

  17. idk says:

    Notice how calm Beyonce is? It’s like she’s seen it all many times before.

  18. Dani2 says:

    But why is Beyonce so calm throughout the video though? Has this happened before?

  19. karen says:

    Either Jay Z cheated and Solange was defending her sister, or she sometimes becomes aggressive after a few drinks. Because the way everyone stayed back seemed like this is a regular occurrence or something. It seems pretty crazy to address cheating in the elevator after the Met Gala, and didn’t Jay Z and Beyonce go to to the after party and everything? I don’t know this seems such an over top way to behave she basically assaulted him, yikes.

  20. Hope says:

    There have been rumors of Jay being emotionally and physically abusive to Bey for years. It could be that, could be cheating, any number of things. The guy seems like a total douche. I’m glad someone is sticking up for his wife…

    • Esti says:

      Are you serious? All we have is a video of Solange violently attacking Jay-Z (who doesn’t fight back at all) and you decide he must have had it coming and that Solange is “sticking up for his wife”?

      As someone said above, I doubt so many people would be suggesting this was the victim’s fault if the genders were reversed.

      • Hope says:

        I’m just going off the rumors I’ve heard, which is all any of us have. The fact that Bey didn’t try to stop her sister and then left with her is what makes me think this incident might be tied to those rumors. As others have noted, there are stories and videos online of Jay being abusive to fans and degrading to women online if you scour for them…. It’s not a stretch. Normally I wouldn’t defend abusive behavior towards anyone, man or woman. But IF someone has wronged one of your loved ones, even if it’s wrong to do so, what she did was at least understandable.

      • snowflake says:

        @ hope

        not it’s not understandable. that’s how gangs operate. you kill of them, they kill one of yours. why not, that’s their family, right? no, how is that right? but b/c you, who personally knows jayz (not), thinks he’s abusing her, you think it’s okay for her to abuse hiM? it’s not. how do you even know if it’s anything related to him? you don’t, you’re just operating on your own assumptions. if jayz was attacking solange and beyonce didn’t interfere, would you reach the conclusion that solange had abused him and thus solange deserved it? i don’t think so. there is no justification for the way solange acted. maybe beyonce just didn’t want to get hit or scratched so she decided to let the bodyguard handle it.

  21. Annemarie says:

    I’m sure alcohol had a role in this. If you look at some of the other pictures of Solange at the Met Gala, she looks pretty wasted. But then again, I don’t know many people who would try to mollywop a relative of theirs, who they have a lot of respect for, while drunk. So maybe this is a case of someone showing their true feelings about someone with the help of alcohol. What Jay-Z did? Who knows. But don’t expect any of them to tell us what happened. They’re private people who only share like 1% of what goes on in their personal lives.

  22. HHazel says:

    Holy sh-t this is straight up CRAZY! Omg this seriously need audio. Honestly it looks like they are used to it though? They are not reacting as if this was the first time this has happened or i might just me imagining things BECAUSE HOLY S-HT

  23. whyme says:

    Maybe she had good reason? I don’t condone violence, but Beyonce did leave with her at the end of the night and not with her husband.

    My mom was recently physically hurt by her brother, and I imagine if I had the balls to do it, I’d hit him like Solange did her brother in law. I’d like to even do worse to him.

    I’m not trying to imply that there was anything like that between them, but why immediately assume that she’s the crazy one? Just because he didn’t hit her back, or acted in any way violent doesn’t mean he’s the innocent one.

  24. toto says:

    The way she fights with him as if these two had an affair at sometime before, Bey cold reaction as if she knows and does not care for anything anymore.

    The Sherlock in me

  25. Reece says:

    Daaayyuuuum! And they were def arguing before they got on the elevator…Watching it again…This doesn’t look like it’s something new.

    You know the elevators have been far more interesting than the fashion at the Met this year.

  26. Ag says:

    This is some crazy sh*t.

    Their PR machine must be in overdrive now.

  27. bravocueen says:

    There aren’t too many things that evoke this type of response from an otherwise seemingly “normal” headed person. My bet is prior discrete cheating and now open and/or brazen cheating. Looks like Bey thinks he deserves it.

  28. lunchcoma says:

    Does anyone know if she has a history of being a bad drunk? The video with Reese suggests there was a lot of boozing going on that night.

    Beyonce leaving with her doesn’t necessarily mean that she thinks Solange was right. It might be that her sister needed someone to take care of her.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Lunchcoma …

      Agreed. Notice the way Beyonce looks at (after her) as she leaves the elevator (another site has a shot of them all just coming out of the elevator). It’s a kind of “Aww, poor thing … is she alright?” Kind of face. It couldn’t have been all Jay-centric though, because Bey is looking WAY too calm.

  29. Tiffany says:

    I watched both of the videos at TMZ. It looks likes his security made the decision to put him in another car. It looked like Jay was ready to ride with them before his bodyguard directed him somewhere else.

    All in all, this is juicy…….

  30. Al says:

    I guess not everyone finds violent drug dealers who become rich and famous with BLATANT misogyny enjoyable to be around. Go figure!

  31. LadyS says:

    This is some heavy crazy shit! Solange is pissed!!!!! This is not drunkenness or anything; this is straight up anger. She was clearly out for blood. Beyonce looks so weak in this video too. She looks like a pushover. The pictures of them leaving right after the fight are interesting. Beyonce looks very sad, but Solange seems to be in control walking ahead with her head high!

  32. Hissyfit says:

    This is crazy. I’m glad Jay didn’t hit her back or something – that would’ve been a mess!

  33. phlyfiremama says:

    Forget going to the gala itself, it seems like the elevators were the place to be this year!!!

  34. CaribbeanLaura says:

    I think this is gonna be kinda HUGE. Because Beyonce so carefully manages her image of ‘perfection’ this big ass crack in the facade will feed the sharks for weeks!!!

  35. Skins says:

    Why is surveillance footage always so grainy? With all the technology we have you would think it would be a lot sharper

  36. feebee says:

    That was just bizarre… from the elevator to the separation at the car. And it looked like Jay Z was going to get in the car after Solange but then turned or was turned to go to the one behind. I’m confused as to Bey’s passive onlooker role in the elevator.

    Solange was saying something angry as they got on the elevator. You don’t know what Jay said to her just before she attacked him. There are a lot of people who can say calm while saying truly vile, disgusting things to get others to explode (not that I’m saying he is or did – just that his calmness doesn’t mean he wasn’t an equal party to a heated argument).

    Just like Beyonce leaving with Solange instead of Jay doesn’t mean Jay’s in the doghouse. B might have been worried about Solange and so she’d see her home and make sure she was ok and then go home herself…. or it could be mean that Jay is in the doghouse.

    Whatever happened and there’ll be so much fun conjecture, the whole thing was just wow, really?!

  37. Dulcinea says:

    I find it interesting that in the second Video he’s going to get in the car right after she does and the body guard stops him. Maybe she has a drinking problem and angry outbursts or he did something terrible. Also, as controlling as Beyonce is with all things that are concerning her image, I’m not surprised she doesn’t do anything and I also wouldn’t be surprised if his people released the video.

    • erika says:

      i find the bodyguard stopping him interesting too. first, because jay was willing to get in the car with her..wth? also, who’s idea was it for him to not go in the car with them? the bodyguard? who made that decision? i want to know who called the shots on that one

  38. videli says:

    How soon is the Beyonce Industrial Complex going to get her sister in rehab or some form of anger management program?

  39. GeeMoney says:

    I wonder if she mouthed off and got violent with to him b/c she was tired of seeing/hearing about him cheating on Beyonce. I’m sure the drinks she probably had before the altercation didn’t help, either.

    PS – And the fact that Beyonce is just STANDING there not doing anything to stop this fight from going down says a lot – and I’ll guess that whatever Solange was fussing at Jay-Z about, it probably had to do with her defending her sister.

  40. Irishserra says:

    Look, I’m not a fan of airing your family’s dirty laundry out there, but neither can I tolerate those who work so hard to try and make everyone think their lives are perfect and on some plane unattainable to everyone else. This is what happens when you live by the latter. First the cracks and then the inevitable explosion. I don’t think this surprises anyone. The way Jay-Z and Beyonce obscenely spend on frivolity and nonsense leads me to believe that it’s a mere band-aid for a shoddy or mediocre-at-best marriage. I’ve seen nothing publicly in the way of solidity or down-to-earth behavior. Happy down-to-earth couples do not make a practice of hiding normalcy and advertising wasteful extravagance.

    **Grabbing my popcorn, because it’s going to be a doozy**

  41. MSat says:

    There’s one in every family – even Beyonce’s, haha!

    Seriously, though, I’ve always thought that Solange seemed like a bit of an unhinged mess – it must be tough living in Beyonce’s considerable shadow and not being as cute, talented, etc.

    • idk says:

      Let’s not jump to conclusions. I haven’t physically attacked a family member, but I have argued. Some people are evil and after a point, you have to fight back. Solange shouldn’t have hit him, but yelling is fine in my books. Don’t ever be a doormat.

      • MSat says:

        Haha! You say not to jump to conclusion but then you insinuate that Jay-Z is evil?

      • idk says:

        What? No I said SOME people are evil. I didn’t say he was. I was talking about personal experience with some of my own family members. Some are so evil…they keep spewing their hate and after a point you just have to fight back (not physically though). No one knows what happened with Jay and Solange but I’m sure it was something deep seated and not just about something that happened that night.

  42. Yup says:

    People keep commenting on the fact that she was drunk. Could be, but something provoked her. I don’t know too many drunk people who literally attack someone – esp a family member -unprovoked. So he definitely did something – who knows what. If my husband did something awful and my sister threw a punch, I might stand back to – he probably doesn’t think he is wrong and having someone support you to show that your husband is wrong can be powerful. Maybe Bey knows nothing she will do can change it so might as well let someone else have at him.

    Guess their lives aren’t as peachy perfect as they want people to believe…which is so god damn refreshing!!! Cat is out of the bag now hehe

    • LadyJane says:

      ITA. Why does everyone assume she is drunk or has a mental illness? That is a bit of a big leap in my book. I hate violence, but it is obvious that Jay has done something to truly enrage Solange. Bey dosen’t seem surprised in the elevator. It looks like she was almost expecting it. Makes me think this has something to do with them both (bey and jay).

    • MSat says:

      “I don’t know too many drunk people who literally attack someone – esp a family member -unprovoked.”

      I see it every weekend when I’m playing out in bars with my band! Drunk idiots who start fights with friends, family members, strangers, inanimate objects, you name it!

    • Eleonor says:

      No, she was too controlled to be drunk, if she was drunk to the point of making a scene she would have been all over the tabloid, she would have made a public mess. INstead she has waited, freaked out in the elevator, and when they went out she looked put together.

      • Yup says:

        Yeah it really irks me that people are like “OH MENTAL ILLNESS” I got my PhD in clinical psychology and I don’t think its fair – even for someone who is qualified – to diagnose someone based on a blurry tape. Please people, don’t put labels on someone especially as serious as a mental illness. Sure its fun to speculate but who are we to quantify her actions to such a serious infliction?

        It really looks like Solange found out about something Jay did (seems to be unthinkable) and is defending her sister. I can only imagine how much she has had to witness, and put up with that caused such a passionate reaction. And Bey standing back, still convinced she was beaming with pride that someone had the balls to stick up for her. Maybe Solange was saying everything that Beyonce doesn’t have the courage to.

      • FLORC says:

        Online diagnosis from our armchair degrees behind out screens is not to be taken seriously. Keep it in perspective.

  43. Anaya says:

    I doubt that Solange was drunk. She landed all of her slaps and her kicks. This was no drunk fighting. JZ is the one who’s in wrong is my gut feeling. Bey’s calmness isn’t so much about protecting her pristine image than it’s about her being numb to this sort of behavior from her man and her sister. No one there realized there is a camera in the elevator , if they knew they didn’t care about that. Security held Solange back from attacking JZ but didn’t shied the camera to hide the fight. I bet there’s so much more drama behind J and B’s closed doors than anyone could ever imagine. Stay tuned.

    • whyme says:

      That’s what my gut is telling me as well – Solange was just protecting herself, or her sister from something he did or said (jumping to conclusions here, I know. But I don’t care).

    • PennyLane says:

      Maybe there was ‘someone’ in particular at the after-party, and Solange felt like her sister had been humiliated? Who knows…

      I can’t really imagine going off on my sister’s husband like that, but then again my sister’s husband is a nice person and treats her and their children with affection and respect.

  44. Michele says:

    I don’t care what her reasons were, she acted like a lunatic and a hood rat. No normal person does that to her brother in law. Good gawd. They need to quit letting her tag along everywhere, what does she do anyway?

  45. idk says:

    Why couldn’t this video have leaked the day of Kimye’s wedding ? This video broke twitter today, no lie. It spread like wild fire.

  46. Mimi says:

    Maybe Jay overstepped and got into Solange’s business or tried to control her in some way and she wasn’t having it. Maybe he cockblocked her or made some snide remarks about how “turned up” she was getting. Either way, she was mad and not going to shut up about it! Beyonce has long said that Solange is not the type to hold her tongue, but if fearless in standing up for herself.
    Bey’s body language had that awkward vibe you get when your sibling/best friend and your other half are having a fight- the one where you don’t know whose side to take and so you just gape awkwardly in horror and then later get hate from both sides for not sticking up for them.
    I don’t think this is about cheating. Particularly as Solange is the one freaking out. I think he did or said something to her that she didn’t take kindly to.

    • MindyDopple says:

      I couldn’t figure out how to reply to what Mimi said further up but it really did look like a fight solely between Solange and Jay. Beyonce didn’t want to get involved and looked over it. Anything she would have said to either one would have seemed like taking sides. I mean sometimes you lose your mind, maybe he said something about her career (not an excuse) who knows but I bet they never issue a statement and let this just go away EVENTUALLY.

  47. Talie says:

    Beyonce’s calm demeanor speaks way more volumes than anything else… so much to analyze there.

  48. Michele says:

    I think it’s misplaced sibling rivalry plain a simple. She can’t beat the crap outta Queen Beyoncé like she wants to so she hates the next best thing – her equally successful husband.

    It’s jealousy and rage gushing out after too many drinks at an event where everyone was falling over themselves to get near her sister the great and wonderful Beyoncé. Shrug. Simple psychology.

  49. amanda says:

    maybe it’s something not having to do with cheating?
    maybe it has to do with careers
    maybe he was a dick to solange and she had it?
    maybe it’s something to do with her niece?
    maybe it’s something to do with (I know this is laughable to most people) higher powers. These people are in deep with the rich, famous and powerful (presidents, entertainment execs) maybe some soul-selling is at stake and Solange doesn’t want her sister to be involved.

    Anyways, Beyonce looks like she’s more worried about the fight between her husband and sister ripping her dress than being involved.

    If that bodyguard wasn’t there, I wonder who would have gotten which punches and kicks, because it does look like he lunges at Solange and had another man not been there to stand between them (because clearly Beyonce is no use at all when it comes to trying to alleviate the situation)…who know what their faces would have looked like coming out of that elevator.

    Also, just proof that no matter how hard these people try to curate their own images on the internet and on tumblr and all that, you’re probably just as trashy as the next person and your family will help prove that. Celebrity or not, attacking a family member in an elevator is a low-class act, just standing there means you’ve probably seen it before, you’re numb to it or you plain just don’t give a sh*t

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Mostly he held his temper but I agree he lunged at Solange for a hot second. She must have said something that really hit home.

      Do people really believe Blue Ivy is Solange’s biological daughter? THAT is some complex stuff.

  50. MsMercury says:

    I want to know what went down before they got into that elevator. Because they all seemed really calm and then boom! There has to be a story and Solange was just holding it back until that moment. It doesn’t excuse her because violence isn’t okay, but I do think she’s trying to protect her sister.

  51. MSat says:

    This really gives you some insight into the security teams/bodyguards in Hollywood. This guy handled this situation like a pro. They must have to prepare for literally any situation under the sun. I couldn’t handle that job, holy crap!

  52. word says:

    Every other celeb out there is now biting their nails worried about the things they’ve done in elevators…and then there’s the Kardashians who are now planning an elevator “incident”.

  53. als says:

    WTF! First it was elevator Reese, now elevator Beyonce…next year these people better take the stairs at the Met Gala.
    Anyway, no amount of alcohol is gonna make somebody go off like that, suddenly and with such a specific target – she doesn’t appear to try and hit anyone else.
    …and, no offense, but I don’t think Bey is the type of older sister that stands by her little sis no matter what, she strikes me as more like a man’s woman and all that.
    If that was my sister going off like that I would not have allowed for that bodyguard to restrain her, at least I would have done it myself, regardless if she wass drunk off her ass or not.

  54. dromedary says:

    I’m loving the faces of the guys behind her in top photo, very “who is that and wtf is she wearing?”

    • melain says:

      ^^exactly. that is kinda hilarious. But look at the pics of beyonce and Jay. She looks like she’s on thorazine, again. She’s looked unnaturally disconnected from her surroundings in so many pix over the past few years. The weight loss and ever changing hair styles and recent talk of trying to be ‘sexy for my man’ …the shenanigans with her dad and his love child. Seems like a lot of difficult situations in her relationships over the past few years. I would think no matter how much she loves her husband and family, and no matter how famous they may be she must have some intense disappointment and disillusionment.

  55. LeahMommy says:

    Solange is CRAZY. No matter how angry a person get you should never attack someone like that. WTF? I WISH so bad for the audio of this thing. Beside this insane attack, the other crazy part is how Beyoncé just stood there and did nothing to protect her husband or calm her sister down. WTF? Which led me to believe that Jay may have done something to Beyoncé, which is why she did not attempt to protect him, this, of course, by no means excuses Solange’s behavior.

  56. cro-girl says:

    My first thought was that Solange has a mental illness. I have a younger sister who is not mentally ill but developmentally challenged and aggressive. I grew up with her physically fighting with random people and I imagined I looked much like Beyonce. It didnt phase me. If Beyonce was angry with Jay she wouldnt have had a different disposition and the fact that she left with her sister shows that she feels the support is more necessary for her sister than for him. If she had any issues with him she would have gone with him and if she chose not to she would have looked more ruffled leaving with her sister. Just my interpretation.

  57. Louisa says:

    Beyoncé’s behavior is the most bizarre thing about the whole altercation. Even when her sister first lunges at her husband there is absolutely no reaction from her. No matter what the reason for this fight is, this is not normal. It’s almost like she’s on something.
    And then the video of them walking to the car, she has a small smile on her face as she knows the cameras are there. I’m sorry but if this was my family and something like this had just happened I would be shaken and not able to hide it.

    • Tracy says:

      Absolutely no reaction and let’s not forget what a small space they were in. No reaction…. weird.

      • me says:

        Beyonce posted a pic (either she posted it the night of the Met Gala or the night after) of her with Solange and a few other celebs with a Biblical quote about choosing your friendships wisely and asking God to help rid her of toxic relationships…interesting indeed.

    • Michele says:

      why is keeping your cool when a crazy person is being an idiot being bizzare?

    • Juliette says:


      Beyonce’s performance, smiling for the cameras, after a violent fight between her sister and her husband is professional, but its professional to a completely bizarre and unsettling degree. Side Note: The performance further convinces me that Beyonce was never pregnant. She’s clearly comfortable with living a lie.

      I think Solange has always been the more independent and strong willed sibling. Solange is less inclined to take the sh*t that Matthew Knowles, or any man is dealing out. Beyonce was her father’s golden goose probably because she never questioned him and was better at taking direction and staying the course. Solange rebelled, got married and pregnant young, and has struggled career-wise ever since. However, I’ve never heard anything about Solange being unstable. She’s had full custody of her son for years and there were never whispers of her being a bad parent.

      The signs point to Jay-Z misbehaving and Solange freaking out on her sister’s behalf.

    • OhDear says:

      Stuff like that happened a lot in my family and everyone would act exactly the way Beyoncé did. It may be partially professionalism on Beyonce’s part but non-celebrities do this all the time, too.

    • mikeal says:

      Are we really criticizing Beyonce for keeping cool in a crazy situation. If you look at the footage clearly you can see Beyonce saying something to both Solange and Jay Z and at one point and she even put herself physically between both of them.

      And the fact that she tried to at least smile for the paparazzi is called being professional in public she have been trained to be that way since he was 5yrs old if not younger.

  58. dorothy says:

    Would love to have heard the vocal recording of that.

  59. Fan says:

    She probably does not approve of how J. is treating her sister. She feels that her sister has done so much that when she got a little drunk, she unleashed it all.

  60. littlestar says:

    Wow, now this is some juicy gossip!

  61. Miss5280 says:

    Hmmmm. I would not mind putting Solange and my BIL on an elevator together for all the crap he’s put my sister through.

  62. Dani says:

    Could be anything but I truly hate that people keep asking if Solange is mentally stable because she may have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Just because someone is bipolar doesn’t mean they’re ‘prone’ to outbursts and something like this is expected. Bipolar disorder is something serious that a lot of people are troubled with and it isn’t ‘normal’ or ‘expected’ to behave this way. My dad dealt with it for a good 10 months before he passed away recently and I hate that people keep thinking ‘well he was bipolar so violence and depression were expected.’ No, they aren’t. Jay-Z may be a complete disgusting pig, Beyonce could be a liar and Solange may just like attention. It has nothing to do with the state of her mental health.

    Also – after rewatching the video, hate to say it but if Beyonce wasn’t there, judging by Jay-Z’s physical reaction, he would have hit Solange right back.

    • mogul says:

      Yeah, I think that it’s was why he was getting in the car after her. To get even, there have been testimonies that he’s even violent with Beyonce. I think that Beyonce told him to not even think to put his hands on her sister.

    • I Choose Me says:

      “Also – after rewatching the video, hate to say it but if Beyonce wasn’t there, judging by Jay-Z’s physical reaction, he would have hit Solange right back.”

      There is a moment where he seems like he’s going to do just that. But it may have been just to yell at her.

  63. LAK says:

    it’s so wierd that B just stands there whilst her sister goes for JZ, and even when the bodyguard is restraining her, Solange is still mouthing off at JZ and *crickets* from B. She only moves between them when it looks like Solange has escaped the grip of the bodyguard and is about able to hit JZ again.

  64. mogul says:

    Haven’t you seen the picture of Beyonce and Rihanna were they greet each other? It was so awkward and everyone heard about the rumours of Jay-Z and Rihanna, that they had longstanding affair and that Rihanna was being messy and even called Beyonce once told her everything (according to blindgossip). This year, Rihanna went to each Grammy event but not the Grammy’s even though she won because Beyonce didn’t want her there and Beyonce didn’t show up to the Roc Nation Grammy event where Rihanna was present. Every time Jay-Z, Beyonce and Rihanna are in the same building Jay-Z fawns over Rihanna (see the Roc Nation Grammy event of 2013), leaving Beyonce in the cold. If I was Solange and I knew all those things, Jay-Z should be happy that he left the building on his own two feet. Plus, look how affectionate Jay-Z has been to Beyonce the last couple months like he’s trying to redeem himself for something. Beyonce in her song with Drake talks about divorce, about how after having Blue she got tired of living in those conditions.

  65. TWINK says:

    How delicious! I’m just tired of the Queen B worship, I do like some of her music but she’snot the second coming! So, I’m loviiiiing this! DRAMA!

  66. pnichols says:

    Is it legal for the place to release the video of what happens in the elevator??? I would think maybe yes if he was going to press charges but I wonder.

  67. Lionbdadddy says:

    It doesn’t appear that Solange was drunk. Something major happened prior, to have her attack him like that. My guess if I had to, would be he cheated on Beyonce or something to do with Beyonce that caused her sister to become so enraged. Beyonce’s composure, standing there doing nothing to tame her sister as if she was watching a stranger attack another. Maybe it’s an indication she felt Jay deserved it.

  68. Tania says:

    I applaud beyonce’s calmness, I bet they all thought this was private. This is no news about her demeanor. There’s a 2006 video where PETA interrogates B and she’s totally numb. I think solange steps in for her whilst she’s still calm.

    There’s been lots of blinds of solange’s behavior and this is an example. Really good for her standing up for her sister. I’m sure all this is because Jay z def did something. We will never know what happened beforehand.

    One thing that bothers me is if roles had been turned?

  69. aquarius64 says:

    O. M. G.

    First, how did TMZ get the footage?! I think the person who was monitoring the security cameras (and is most likely unemployed now) made a copy and sent it anonymously to TMZ.

    Solange swinging and kicking; Jay-Z blocking; Beyonce’ standing there passively during the whole mess most of the time and the Carters leaving the gala in separate cars. Dollar bet chez Carter is in Def – Com 1 for damage control. This piece of film just took a wrecking ball to Bey & Sean’s loving power couple image. The gossip press will gorge on this for days.

  70. drea says:

    I’m quite surprised Jay didn’t hit back. There’s a video/gif out there of him striking a woman (they say she works for him or something) so I know he’s not beyond hitting women. I get the feeling that there’s a lot of violence simmering under the surface in that family, but they’re just really good at keeping it behind closed doors.

  71. meryl says:

    this is big!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! gotta luv tmz!

  72. me says:

    TMZ has put up the FULL 3.5 minute version and it’s even crazier.

  73. Eleonor says:

    I think Beyonce isn’t that empowered independent womand she claims to be,
    professionally her career after Destiny’s Child is linked to J-Z. Together they’re a brand, but Beyonce alone? She wouldn’t have lasted . I suppose she has closed her eyes in front of his infidelieties a lot of times, because she needs him, and all the “sexy stuff with hubby” to me was the proof that there are TONS of trouble in paradise.
    I don’t know why Solange did freak out that way, but for me she wasn’ on drugs or drunk.

  74. verelleyj says:

    What trash! Money doesn’t equal class. All three of them look ridiculous. Beyonce just stands there and doesn’t intervene? Doesn’t try to cool her sister down? And then they all walk out like evrrything is fine. If this video doesn’t prove what a sham of a marriage these two have, I don’t know what will. Gross, all three of them.

  75. Helvetica says:

    Solange looks like she is on the bad drugs or something. Compared to Jay and Bey’s demanor, she looks like a nut.

  76. word says:

    Isn’t it a crime for the security to WITNESS an assault in an elevator and NOT report it??? So if a female was attacked in that same elevator, no one would have reported it ???

  77. Neelyo says:

    He was the only one brave (or dumb) enough to tell her the truth about that dress.

  78. Green Is Good says:

    Anybody suspect Solange is Jay-Z’s sidepiece, and she’s sick of being the Mistress?

  79. aquarius64 says:

    Judging from this footage, the Obamas won’t be seen with the Carters, especially since this is an election years for the mid-terms.

  80. joan says:

    The big question is:

    Why would the sisters leave in one car and he in another?

  81. Samtha says:

    At one point, Beyonce just kind of casually puts Solange’s shoe back on her foot. This is not a new occurrence. From her reaction, it seems like something she’s used to.

  82. Dani2 says:

    The internet memes have started -

    This is not going away, Beyonce’s publicist must be in hell right now, how do you make this go away?

  83. Spaniard says:

    When I read this I immediatly remembered this blind item from last year and went to search it only to find out it was on top of the page and solved. No wonder Beyoncé didn’t look scared or surprised she has seen & done this all before, seems this behaviour is common among that couple and their family.

  84. Mel M says:

    Wow, so many questions, so wish there was audio. The full length video is cray, she goes after him more then once. It’s like everyone in the elevator knows that she will attack him at any second if she gets a clear shot. He looks like he’s getting attitude with B as well in some of it. Her silence and really not looking at anyone in the face makes me think she’s pissed at Jay. I don’t think we will ever find out the real reason for this.

  85. Val says:

    Just watched the extended version of that video on Jezebel…just wow.

  86. Panda says:

    What I find weird is that Bey does virtually nothing before, during and after her sister tries to pummel JayZ. I bet JayZ said something negative about Solange’s musical aspirations to someone and she overheard it and went off her rocker Either way, I can’t wait to hear what really happened.

  87. Tiffany says:

    I wonder why the person who recorded this did not take it to Jay and Bey’s camp. I bet they would have backed up the truck not to have it released. Or the person did and they did not bite so he went with the best offer. Either way, what a way to kick off the summer…..whew.

  88. PHD gossip says:

    Maybe it is not about a payoff. Maybe Jay Z knocked up another side piece.

  89. Lexie says:

    I don’t see mental illness, I see hoodrat behavior. No amount of money or luxury items can change a person’s cultivated response to an insult – you can see things like this all the time in many, many households. Violent responses are more often than not learned in the childhood environment, through the example of adults.

    Aside from that, Bey and Jay have always had a too-perfect relationship. There’s definitely something going on, though I have no doubt they’ll play it off like Solange has some mental illness or was under the influence. Maybe they’ll even send her to rehab for the sake of appearances.

    Bey’s behavior was telling – she remained pretty neutral – she didn’t defend her husband OR her sister. Classic behavior of someone in a bad relationship but without the backbone to do something about it.

  90. pnichols says:

    Don’t you think if he was actually cheating on her that at some point at least ONE girl would come forward? I mean especially in this day and age and because of who he is. It just seems odd to me that if he is such a big cheater that no one has ever stepped forward to say they were involved with him. I know zero about this couple. I was just curious.

  91. Joanie says:

    Jay-Z referred to himself as Ike Turner in Beyonce’s song ‘Drunk in Love.’

    That’s all I need to know about him.

    • ParisPucker says:

      yea, I caught that and remember thinking to myself…why tf would you reference him?!? But wouldn’t B have shown signs of abuse??

      So many question marks on this one. But respect to Solange if she was protecting her sis…I don’t think we have to put it under the ‘hood’ category – just ‘supremely and royally pissed’ category! If someone really messed w my family, I might go ballistic too, depending on what happened. And I’m not a violent person…but when emotions flare up, watch out. That elevator contained a bomb

  92. akadusk says:

    FINALLY; someone acknowledges that Beyoncé did get in between at one point AND when Solange moves back into the elevator Beyoncé follows. I don’t know what went down but to say that its because Jay-Z disrespected and controls Beyonce is unfounded! We don’t know what was said so STOP assuming!

    • mikeal says:

      Not only did she get between but you can see at one point Beyonce having words at with Solange and the Jay Z. Beyonce wasn’t as passive as people are making out she was calm and collected in the situation.

      As for Jay Z his reaction seem to be defensive, he only grabs Solange hands and feet to protect himself I don’t know many men who are are abusive, who reacts like that when they are hit.

      • Beatrice says:

        @mikeal I totally agree. I saw the extended three minute video and I don’t see her being a doormat like people are presuming. I think she just knows those doors are going to open shortly and that tons of people are going to be outside with cameras so she’s keeping her shi* together until they’re in private. I think it’s kind of silly for anyone to be assuming what the fight was about because for all anyone knows Jay could have said or done something that struck a nerve about any number of things related or unrelated to Beyonce. There’re a ton of variables that could factor in. I want the goss for sure, but I don’t think we’ll get it lol.

  93. Jayna says:

    I can’t believe the people standing up for her violent behavior and instantly blaming Jay Z without knowing anything. Unbelievable. She acted like a trashy, violent fool no matter what she was mad about. She went down to gutter level. Except for the period the elevator was stopped Bey was standing there like when this door opens I’ve got my Beyonce face on, calm, cool, no three-way fight for me.

    • starrywonder says:


      These comments that he must have done something to have her hit him are disgusting. She’s a freaking hood rat. You don’t put your hands or feet on another person. Everyone acting like she must have been defending Beyonce are crazy. He could have made a snide remark about her dress. He could be cheating. He could be a lot of things. The only person I saw acting the fool was Solange though. Based on her other antics she wants to be like Beyonce and goes to openings of paper bags. She does not have her sister’s talent or money.

      • Dee says:

        What’s with people calling Solange a “hood rat”? As far as I know she didn’t grow up in the “hood”. They lived in a six-figure giant house until B hit it big and then they moved to a mansion. So no, Solange isn’t a “hood rat”. Her behaviour was crazy, uncalled for and out of control, but that’s as far as I’d go to describe her BEHAVIOUR. And she wants to be like Beyonce? Have you listened to any of her music? Have you seen her style? She’s the complete opposite of Beyonce.

      • Tiffany says:

        @Dee. So since they came from money she should get a pass? So everyone who grew up in what you consider the hood will always act that way. You want to school people on generalization, learn yourself.

      • Dee says:

        I didn’t say that everyone who comes from the hood is a “hoodrat”. I just disagree with that term being used when a black woman* acts inapropriate. Miley Cyrus is a hood rat. Solange is not. And you’re right. It was a really bad example I used i.e growing up with money.

    • snowflake says:

      yes there is no excuse for how she acted! we wouldn’t excuse a man for acting like that!

  94. Isa says:

    This is so disturbing. I am dying to know what the fight was about, not that it would excuse her behavior, but it’s probably something juicy.

    I hope they don’t fight like this around the children. But according to the blind item (I know, I know) they do.

  95. magpie says:

    HmmM…Bey’s ring falling off on the MET red carpet was some crazy metaphor, foreshadowing happening!

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      I see your metaphor, Magpie, and raise it by an allegory!

      For all we know, the hunt for the ‘lost’ ring could have been staged. You know, the whole is he/she or isn’t he/she wearing their ring shenanigans we always seem to see whenever a celebrity is splitting is contrived clap trap for publicity. Maybe the ring ‘accidentally’ falling off on the red carpet was a publicity stunt gone terribly wrong.

      Or, maybe it was a purposeful allegory of Beyonce ‘privately’ signaling Jay she can lose him just as easily, and Solange (amplifying Queen B’s displeasure by a 1000) picked up what Bey was laying down by losing her shit entirely.

      At this rate, I better pace myself here because I’m running out of tinfoil!

  96. Lea says:

    I don’t condone violence,and that is an horrible act. At the same time I can’t help thinking about how Solo in every interview talks about how protective of her sister she is,therefore maybe she stood up for something Jay said to her sister. I’m speculating but she’s very outspoken and isn’t the kind to silently accept what she disagree with.
    Also people talking about jealousy are irrational. what does jealousy has to do with attacking your brother in law? Solange has had a quite successful carreer these last years.

  97. Maxine7 says:

    My thoughts: 1. This is not the first time at the rodeo for this FOUR (I’m including the body guard here). Often when something unexpected happens, people look shocked, fearful, etc. . . . NONE of that happens here. The bodyguard goes into protection mode – but like he’s seen this before. Beyonce just freezes, like she’s seen this before, and JAYZ starts protecting himself (as opposed to hitting back or cowering) like he’s done this before. Oh, and Solange clearly knows how to land a punch. 2. I find it really interesting that a few of the posts are justifying Solange’s actions – as in, if JAYZ has been a dog, or a cheater, or messed up her career, she’s justified. You go girl! Well, I would just say this is one of the problems with how we view violence and domestic violence in this country. Make that JAYZ throwing the punches, even if he were justified because Solange did something horrible to him – and I doubt few with condone his actions. When I first looked at this video – and I mean the long version – my first thought was that the NYPD is going to want to have a nice long talk with Solange because what she did on that camera looks very much like assault under the NY Penal Law (section 120).

    • Jarredsgirl says:

      I think its worth pointing out that a woman of Solange’s size is not going to be able to do much damage to a guy like Jay. YES, it is wrong to hit someone. But the reason men shouldn’t hit women is because they are bigger and stronger. The damage is worse when a man hits a woman. I doubt that Solange even hurt Jay.

      This reminds me of a video I watched of a performance Jay and Bey did a while back (can’t remember what it was, I think crazy in love or something). But I noticed that Jay-Z looked upset and Beyonce had her performance face on. She was flirty with him, as part of the routine, and you could see the shock on his face, because he wasn’t expecting her to be such a good actor (I think).

      Interesting. I’m team Solange, Jay-Z has a track record of being a misogynist, I really don’t care that Solange attacked him. It’s not like she hurt him.

      • Antonym says:

        “But the reason men shouldn’t hit women is because they are bigger and stronger.”

        NO. Just no. That is not the reason men shouldn’t hit women. No one gets a pass at hitting someone just because they are hitting someone who is bigger. Violently attacking someone is wrong. Period.

  98. videli says:

    Who knows what went down there, but I think it’s complete shit to jump in somebody’s face like she did.

  99. Bell says:

    I believe it’s clear that even though Beyonce wasn’t clearly picking a side, she agreed with Solange.
    Notice these things:
    First she positions herself in the corner.
    She is still and unfazed by the first altercation.
    She does intervene only when Jay grabs Solange’s foot. And she intervenes to get Jay to let go.
    Then notice how Solange is vocally tearing into him and how Beyonce is now looking at Jay. As if to show that he deserves what ever words are being dealt to him.
    Also notice how Beyonce hasn’t moved from Solange’s side. She is aware that she is in no danger. So Solange’s mental illness/drunkness/drugged reasoning isn’t valid. If she was really going crazy, Beyonce would be worried about her own safety.
    Then there is clearly a part of the conversation that Beyonce is involved and by seeing Jay’s gestures, we can assume it’s that Beyonce was telling him that she is leaving with Solange.

    Freakiest part is the photos outside, after the elevator. Beyonce has her Paparazzi game face on. While Solange looks livid and Jay looks disgruntled. Makes one think of skilled celebrities are at putting on a facade in public…

    And by everyone’s actions, including the bodyguard, it’s clear altercations have happened and will probably happen again.

    • LadyS says:

      I agree with you completely. Beyonce’s entire body language in the extended video shows that she’s shielding her sister and not taking Jay’s side. This looks like an ongoing feud. Also , in the new pics from Saturday at that Brooklyn Nets’ game Beyonce looks downcast. Not her usual bubbly self. Maybe those are the pictures being published now, but either way makes you think. Like they say in the business “the show must go on!”

    • tricklady says:

      Please tell e you are a private detective. If not …. you should be

    • Kaylah says:

      please. She could’ve also been looking at him to tell him no to react to whatever Solange was saying.
      She could’ve stood between them because she’s trying to calm her husband from getting truly angry and retaliating.
      He could be gesturing in a “are you really going to let her speak to me like that” way.

      You could quite literally spin this any which way.

  100. Peppa says:

    The extended video TMZ put up is crazy. First of all, three and a half minutes in an elevator sounds like torture to me because I am terrified of elevators. Nevertheless, that was no small altercation. I don’t judge Beyonce’s demeanor, because I have been in the middle of a fight like that between family members and froze too. Solange doesn’t look drunk to me, but bless that bodyguard. I couldn’t imagine the crap celebrity bodyguards have to put up with. My cousin was a bodyguard for a politician, and he saw enough crazy stuff.

  101. Emily C. says:

    I don’t care what kind of person Jay-Z is in this context. If he’s treating Beyonce badly, she should leave him; she has the resources. She is not in a “burning bed” situation. If he assaulted a young woman, he should have been punished by law for it. But here’s what happened in this case: Person A started physically attacking person B who was not causing anyone any harm, not trying to restrain anyone, and not showing any signs of violence at all. What Person A did was completely and utterly wrong.

    It was also pointless — what did she expect to accomplish with this? I’m not totally anti-violence, but pointless violence is utterly without excuse or merit.

    Women are not 4-year olds. We are adults with adult strength and knowledge and we are capable of causing serious harm to other adults. (I don’t have full adult strength because I’m disabled, and even I accidentally hurt a doctor’s hand last visit.) The only way I can imagine what Solange did as being excusable is if Jay-Z had just then either beaten or raped her or her sister, and I do NOT think that is the case. And even if that were true, what she did was still pointless.

    And physical violence is never an appropriate response to someone cheating.

  102. Ag-UK says:

    Wow. No one can really know what happened but personally I don’t think she has mental issues or was drunk. Are was very calm walking in. Possibly when you have bottled up anger over something that could be to do with him/them and it can take one remark or something to annoy her and she just lost it. If she were really drunk I
    Am not sure her slaps would have hit the mark with someone holding her. I have a feeling no one will really know. The staff who checks the cameras were probably s***ting themselves.

  103. Lucy says:

    Did any one see the snap shot of a tweet Solange wrote earlier and then later deleted?

    It’s all on Instagram? Is this a real tweet?

  104. Mel M says:

    Does anyone think that maybe Jay had something to do with this video being released? He obviously has beef with his sister in law and this would be a good way to get people against her and on his side. Maybe he doesn’t want B hanging around her or her in Bs ear and this video would make her distance herself from her sister because it is really bad pub. It’s throwing out more conspiracy theories ;)

    • Macey says:

      I was wondering how the video got releases myself. id think if it was a hotel employee Jay or Bey would threaten to sue. Id think there was some expectation of privacy in an elevator. Its one thing if the place has cameras for security but an entirely other thing if they release anything from them to the tabs for no other reason than gossip fodder.

  105. Camille (The Original) says:

    Wow. So dodgy. I wish we could hear the audio.

  106. Jo says:

    He slept with Amber Rose. Pretty sure.

  107. snowflake says:

    i think beyonce is not trying to restrain her sister b/c a bodyguard’s there. who’s gonna restrain a crazy person better, beyonce or a bodyguard? it doesn’t necessarily mean she agrees with solange or that jayz did something to solange. why would she risk getting hit or scratched, getting in the middle of it? so the paps can take a picture of it and speculate? that’s why it went down in the elevator, everyone was trying to keep it quiet. and of course, beyonce’s gonna leave with her sister, she’s the best one to calm her down and make sure she doesn’t blab anything.

    the theories people are coming up are CRAZY!

    • Maxine7 says:

      Yeah I agree with this. Also, Beyonce must have been aware of the fact that as SOON as they got off that elevator there would be photographers and fans everywhere. So let’s say she intervenes. . . . and Solange can’t calm down and keeps swinging – maybe hits Beyonce once or twice and she ends up with some brusing on her face or her veil gets torn or dress ripped. NOW how to you explain that. The more I think about it, I’m thinking Beyonce isn’t intervening because she knows she could get wacked and then bam – there’s a million pictures of Beyonce with a fat lip and how do you explain that?

  108. Macey says:

    I saw this in the comment section of Dlisted..LOL

    Dan D’Addario @DPD_

    what if Beyoncé was the one who wanted to fight, but was using a surrogate
    12:50 PM – 12 May 2014

    PS… Why does Michael K call Solange basement baby???

  109. BlueSky says:

    Extended video, at 3:06, does he put his hand on Solanges face? Kind of gives her a &%*k you shove out of the elevator while his wifes back is turned.

  110. MissTrial says:

    “uh oh uh oh uh oh uh oh” ( sang like Beyonce)

  111. Sambi says:

    Somehow Michelle is to blame for all of this.. #poormichelle

  112. KodochiiR says:

    Imagine what the reactions would be if Jay Z hit Solange.

  113. CoolWhipLite says:

    It is irksome how Beyonce doesn’t even make defensive movements – she doesn’t shield herself, duck, dodge….or move away from her sister’s flailing arms and legs. Maybe her human instincts have actually been canceled out by her desire to have a favorable photo op (she probably assumed there were security cams in the elevator). I watched the video that went from the time they entered the elevator to the time they exited. That bodyguard is a complete dope, especially towards the end of the video. He practically leaves Solange and Jay alone in the elevator. Dumb shit.

    I wonder if Solange walked in on something between Cheater Jay-Z and some other chick at the Gala. I mean, something sparked her apeshit behavior. And I tend to wonder if the reports of Solange having bipolar disorder/drug problem are planted by Bey and Jay because Solange has juicy dirt on something.

  114. rudy says:

    Oh My God. This really DID happen???

    I knew Blind Gossip was spot on sometimes. Go Ace!!!

    Read the Solved post in Blind Gossip today.

    Apparently JayZ is pretty verbally abusive and [perhaps otherly abusive.

  115. John says:

    HAHAHAHA!!! What a bunch of entitled morons, don’t even know how to behave at a black tie event.

  116. Evi says:

    Not such a perfect marriage after all.

  117. TOPgirl says:

    Damn…that is some JUICY video footage. I am just in awe! Reading Solange’s body language, I can see that she arrived inside the elevator bubbling to explode. He must’ve done or said something that Solange witnessed that really pissed the bageesus out of her! Bey doesn’t seem to disagree with Solange kicking Jay’s Ass as she just seem to have stood there trying to maintain her composure during the altercation. I tell ya, Solange is a fighter while Bey is all about her image. This video made me like Solange even more as a person because she at least speaks her mind or in this case, her foot did all the talking!

    • Jayna says:

      You admire a woman attacking and kicking and hitting someone? Wow. Beyonce knew the elevator door could open and she probably wasn’t going to be seen in some gutter-level fight at a huge event. It’s the Met Ball, not some club. It’s amazing the women on here praising Solange and instantly blaming Jay-Z as being deserving of the attack, giving her some made-up noble reason for the attack so they can stand behind her and her behavior. I think her behavior was atrocious and low class. He had to be pissed while she was attacking him and never reacted or reacted back with violence or forcefulness.

      And Solange has deleted all of her photos except one of her with Bey, and Bey had some prayer she had posted that seems directed at Solange.

  118. Cinderella says:

    After the 3:00 mark, watch how he looks like he’s commanding Beyonce to get off the elevator, then seems to provoke Solange as the bodyguard and Bey are heading out the door. Bey had to turn around and get in between. And why was he pointing at his temple at 3:14?

    I would believe Solange over him any day, by the way.

  119. jasmine says:

    well now lyrics she had about tina and ike turner are starting to make sense

  120. Tracy says:

    Beyonce and Jay Z are the bigger stars so their bigger PR teams will spin it in their favor.

  121. hi says:

    when solange first walks on she is pissed as hell. then when jay gets on notice that his hand touches her and she pushes it away, the his other hand goes to touch her again and thats when she flips! i def think that this happens all the time with this crew and i think jay is a piece of shite. also, its very interesting that when they are leaving, the are all about to get into the same car, but the bodyguard separates jay before jay even knows what going on. Jay just literally went where the bodyguard lead him. Who called the shots on that one? I’m so curious about that.. is the bodyguard the parent in this situation that was like “umm, no. you are coming with me young man”??

  122. Daisyduck says:

    I know there is a lot of assumption here (but it’s all we have), in my opinion, the way that Jay just stands there is a bit of an admission of guilt of whatever Solange is going off at him about. He kinda looks like he knows he deserves it.

    • Ukme says:

      So in you opinon an arrogant and abusive person, stand there and let a deranged woman assault him? Granted I do not know any abusive men. But my father, brother and husband would have behaved the same way if dealing with a emotional/mentally distressed person. (as not to escalate the issue). They would not tolerant this behaviour from an angry person, whatever her logical. They would not physical respond, but they would verbally. Beyonce behaviour tells me she is use to her sister’s out outburst. If her sister is mentally ill, then Beyonce needs to support and protect her in getting treatment and be prepared for a long battle ahead ( the love and patience she displayed in the lift (elevator) means she is well equipped to deal with this issue). If Solange beliefs that this is the way to resolve disagreement, the she is needs to cut her our of her life.

  123. Lucy says:

    Solange seems to be tweeting and deleted lots of things relating to “slapping a bitch, try me boy” and also about how if you hit her sister she will hit you.
    Are these legit tweets? Why aren’t this screen grabbed on here?

  124. Elizabeth says:

    And after it was over, Beyoncé and Solange left together and he left alone. Hmmmm.

  125. MisJes says:

    Wow. I am truly disgusted by the behaviour displayed by everyone involved. It just goes to show – all the money in the world can’t buy you an ounce of class.

    • Danskins says:

      Oh please – Bey & Jay were class acts and handled themselves well and with much restraint. Things on that elevator could’ve gone down much differently than they did. Obviously Solange was greatly upset about something and snapped. We have no idea what caused it and will probably never know. But at the end of the day, Jay & B did the best they could without resorting to the level of anger and violence that Solange displayed. They’re not the first group of family members to experience an extremely intense situation and certainly won’t be the last.

  126. Selina says:

    What makes the most sense is that J insulted Solange, probably for being a nobody. It wouldn’t be B’s place to intervene unless it escalated to physical brawling, which is when she did step in. This can’t be Solange “standing up for her sister” because when it comes to her relationship, B is no victim–she actively pursued Hova cuz she wanted the solo success he afforded her and continues to flaunt their wealth and perfect power coupledom. She couldn’t be prouder to be “Mrs. Carter” even naming her tour after it. So it’s unlikely Solange would be “standing up for B” if she knows it’s not what her sister feels or wants and could strain her relationship with her sister.

    Solange was standing up for Solange.

    Oh my god, she seems possessed by something .. ugh! I wonder what the hell Jay did to piss her off that much..

    Solange wants the baby back that she carried for them!

    Wow, that bodyguard sure knows his work. The way this guy handled it… amazing.

    Without knowing what happened and only seeing the video (w/ no audio), Jay and Bey come across as class acts.

    Solange looks like an imbecile. I don’t understand why many people are celebrating her assaulting someone. If a man did this to a woman, he’d like be in jail. It is not ok to attack someone like that, at all, unless they are attacking you and it is in self-defense. Not cool.

    Kinda seems like maybe she is on drugs or something. It’s totally trashy how she behaved. Maybe Bey left with her to try to calm her down.

    You know how they say every family has at least one crazy person in it? Maybe in the Knowles family it is Solange.

    Some people are so naive, J-Z is one of the most sinister characters about. Beyonce looked like a brainwashed puppet in all the pics and vids. Solange had not been subject to such brainwashing and is still an individual in her own right. Whatever J-Z did was bad, Solange stood up for Beyonce. Beyonce didn’t look surprised. It seems like a case of the straw that hit the camel’s back. A lifetime of cheating on Bey has finally taken it’s toll.

    Beyoncé claims that she’s a feminist, but she’s clearly not. A feminist would not have let her sister hit her husband. Feminists want to stop violence, not encourage people to hit others.

    Beyonce knew the kind of man she was marrying, so it hard to have sympathy for a woman who waits around for a few years until he deigns to marry her, never intending to be faithful. Beyonce knew the deal from the get go, and without Jay would not be where she is today, he’s the machine behind behind everything. In any event whatever is going on it’s really not up to Solange to attempt to injure her brother in law for any reason, that is one disturbing performance. If that’s how she solves disputes, I for one am worried about her child, and her influence on him.
