We finally know what caused the heated elevator fight between Solange Knowles and Jay Z on the night of the 2014 Met Gala.
It turns out the family feuding, which was caught on tape and released earlier this week, occurred on the night of Monday, May 5, because Beyoncé‘s man got a little too close with designer Rachel Roy, who’s the ex-wife of his business partner Damon Dash.
It was noted at the gala, Rachel was being flirtatious with Jay. ‘Once everyone was at the Boom Boom Room for the after-party, her flirtations were elevated’.
‘Beyoncé approached Rachel to let her know the behavior was disrespectful and she wanted her out of their lives for good’, a source says . ‘Solange came over to have her sister’s back, and things got heated with her and Rachel. Jay said some disrespectful things to Beyoncé and Solange as the confrontation was going down. Hell broke loose in the elevator and Beyoncé just stood back and let Solange hit Jay’.
The elevator brawl then occurred as the famous fam rode the Standard Hotel’s elevator downstairs to leave and the brawl was caught by a surveillance camera.
Regarding the aftermath, the source says, ‘Solange’s primary residence is now in New Orleans, not Brooklyn. She is in [New Orleans] getting back to her normal life: being a mom, taking her son to school and trying to get on with it’. As for Bey and Jay, they seem to be moving on.
Roy’s camp didn’t immediately repond to the request for comment, but her ex Dash did tweet an interesting message after Solange’s attack. ‘I am actually impressed with her independent spirit, she seems like a fighter’, he wrote.
