Beyonce: Why She Didn’t Help Jay Z During Solange Knowles Attack

Mon, May 12, 2014 8:53pm EDT by 40 Comments 17,595 Article Views

Fans were blown away when they saw the shocking footage of Solange kicking and punching Jay Z in the elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City on May 5. Almost as puzzling was the fact that Beyonce appeared to be standing idly by in the clip, doing nothing to protect her husband. But the singer was apparently just trying to ‘stay out of it,’ according to a new report.

Beyonce tried her best to remain neutral when her younger sister, Solange Knowlesviciously lashed out at Jay Z in a Standard Hotel elevator following an after-party for the Met Ball on May 5. Apparently Bey is a pacifist and she didn’t want to get in the middle of the violent altercation, a new report claims.

Beyonce Helping Jay Z In Solange Knowles Fight? — Why She Didn’t Get Involved

Just call her the Switzerland of superstars! Queen Bey stood on the sidelines when Solange’s fists and feet started flying because the “Drunk in Love” singer didn’t want to get involved in the fight, Us Weekly reports.

“Beyonce tried to stay out of it. She does not approve of violence,” a source tells Us Weekly. “They are trying to put the situation past them now.”

We may never know for sure exactly what happened in that elevator, but we do hope that Beyonce, Jay and Solange will be able to resolve this situation peacefully.

Solange Knowles Attacked Jay Z Because She Thought She Was Defending Beyonce

As HollywoodlLife.com previously reported, Solange believed in her heart that she was coming to her big sister’s defense when she went after Jay Z in the elevator.

“Solange doesn’t like the way Jay Z controls Beyonce,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Beyonce would never speak up to him or defend herself, so Solange does it. Solange is not afraid of him and is fed up with him calling all the shots in Beyonce’s life.”

So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Beyonce have come to Jay Z’s defense or was she right to stay out of the fight? Let us know!

All that “ride or die” Beyoncé sings about is total bull! She could have calmed Solange down without violence!

That’s a bold face lie, he looks at her like a sister. Your comments are so uncouth, is that all you could come up with? How long have you been friends with Jay, since you ‘know’ who he’s attracted to?

But who says she had to get violent too to defend her husband, she could have at least tried to calm her sister down along with the bodyguard but just to stand there was kind of surprising but whatever

Why are people coming down on solange calling her crazy and sh*t? We will never know why she went off the way she did. Ya’ll act like your own family never fought before. These are regular people just like us. Money don’t mean sh*t. Voice lessons? The chick can sing. Let’s stop it.

Nothing wrong with submitting to your husband and doing what he wants, what makes him happy. There will be days he will have to submit to you and do things you want to make you happy too. Marriage is give and take. We don’t see the times when he is apologizing and waiting on her hand and foot. I mean he calls his wife “Queen Bey” In addition, sex often resets the ‘timer’ on minor husband and wife squabbles. If Solange had half the commonsense that Beyoncé had, she would still be married. Beyoncé doesn’t need him, he doesn’t need her- they have chosen to be together. Solange should back off and let husband and wife deal with their issues.

I’m not a fan of the submitting to her husband. I agree that marriage is give and take. I do think she did the right thing because that was between solange and jay z. If she was defending Bey, she should have let Bey handle him behind closed doors like they keep almost all of their business. In my opinion, she should have remained calm and waited until they were at home because they are so private and that is not anything new. As far as solange being divorced we do not the story behind it. For all we know he ended it or he disrespected her in some manner and she didn’t want to deal with what her ex was putting down. She may have gone into the marriage prematurely and it just didn’t work. However, I do agree with you on solange butting out of their marriage because if she continues to butt in if that is what happened, they may start to handle her with a long handled spoon because when it comes to love and spouses once you butt in and they make up, then she will still be mad and that can put a strain on their sisterhood for a little while. Married folks fuss and cuss one second the next one they are over it. After all wedding vows, say through good times and bad times.

People keep saying she did nothing (i thought so as well) but after watching the video a couple of times, it’s clear that she did. When he grabbed her sisters foot and held on, she got in the middle of them. And she and Jay Z clearly had some words. For all we know this is a natural occurrence. She didn’t seem shocked. She probably told him “you better not hit my sister”. I’m not sure what people expected her to do. What would have been the right move?

And we can’t really take this date night as a sign of solidarity. We all saw beyonce smiling once they were no longer behind closed doors, trying to keep up the pretense for the public and for the cameras. So we can’t really trust the smiles we’re seeing now.

Anyone else see him push her face with his hand, because while it’s true his self restraint was impressive, he wasn’t as innocent as people are making him out to be. And when they were almost out of the elevator his hand looked like it did the signal for crazy. Like he was telling her something was wrong with her.

Now we know he would not dare hit her or any other female, did you not see how he reacted when chris brown whipped rihanna? He’s not that type of man, so don’t give their critics that idea to start a campaign of lies about him being a man who hits women.

It’s a touchy subject. Honestly it’s hard to say anything and say who is in the wrong. I doubt anyone would attack anyone for no reason. There must be an underlying issue and it’s really no ones business but theirs. Unfortunately since they are all famous all eyes are on them and any little mishap will be made public.

Nah, it’s clear as day that Solange is one insaine chick. One just doesn’t turn an elevator ride into the Jerry Springer show like that. Kicking and punching your sisters husband? That’s not normal. I can’t even imagine what garbage was coming out of her mouth. She is a nut.

Also, what if the situation was reversed and It was Jay who was hitting Solange? You idiots wouldn’t be saying “that”s sweet of him.”

Solange needs to let her sister live her life. Beyoncé is a big girl and if she is unhappy she is perfectly capable of walking out. She doesn’t need him or his money. Why can’t people stay out of other people’s business?

I think she did not defend Jayz because just maybe a part of her is tired of being “controlled” and she really need someone to come to her defence! Nice one Solange, I would also stand up for my sister!!! #GirlPower!

If solange was defending Bey over an issue with her husband, she went too far. It’s ok to voice an opinion, but she should have never put her hands on him. All three of them are grown, so she should have said her peace without putting her hands and feet on him. Maybe Bey didn’t get involved because she thought about the camera in the elevator and did not want their business all over the internet like it is right now. We don’t know that he controls her and if so that’s their business. If that is the case, solange should have told them what was on her mind and if Bey likes it she should love it. It’s up to Bey to decide how she is going to live her life. I think that Bey wouldn’t put up with it because of how she reacted when her dad’s infidelity and illegitimate son news surfaced. I think she is strong like her mom and she would do what her mom did. If she doesn’t leave that’s her choice and solange can’t fix their issues nor can she make the decisions about Bey’s marriage.

These artists with bodyguards are trained on what to do in situations like these. Beyonce followed protocol. These are moments when you find out who is impulsive with tempers and who knows how to act rationally in tense situations.

Are you in their small circle of friends? Oh, I am 100%(💯) sure that you aren’t because their circle is small for a reason, so that their business can stay behind closed doors. I don’t think that Bey is being controlled by Jay and if you look at their eyes when the camera is on them, you can tell they really love one another. Just because people want their marriage to work out does not mean they idolize it. Maybe people like to see a successful couple (that looks like them) to last because their dream is to find their soul mate as well as it may be what they need to not give up on our brothers because there are still some good ones out there (they look at Will and Jada the same way). IJS.

IDK about that… If you watch the “Watch The Throne” documentary a few min in it shows Kanye giving a bday gift to Jay. A ring. When Beyonce, who is sitting next to Jay, tries to touch it he PULLS IT AWAY and GIVES HER THE EYE… A stern look. She looks sadly at him, cowers actually like a scared puppy, & doesn’t include herself again.

From that instance, and of pics of Jay holding B BY THE BACK OF HER NECK, as if to steer her like he’s controlling some animal. Since they met when she was 17 & he was nearly 30 things behind the scenes have been fishy. She fell in love with her controller. Sadly.
