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!
