Fans worldwide continue to ask the question — what on earth happened between Solange and Jay Z in the elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City on May 5? Now HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY tell you the real reason why Solange lashed out at Jay Z.
Solange Knowles didn’t hold back her emotions when she went after Jay Z in the elevator after attending a post-Met Ball party at the Standard Hotel with the rapper and her sister, Beyonce. But it turns out Solange attacked Jay because she believed that she was coming to her big sister’s defense, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Solange Knowles Defending Beyonce: Why She Attacked Jay Z In Elevator
Jay Z and Beyonce have always been very private about their personal lives, so seeing Solange lash out at the rapper behind closed elevator doors was completely unexpected and rather disturbing. What could have possibly caused the brawl?
“Solange doesn’t like the way Jay Z controls Beyonce. Beyonce would never speak up to him or defend herself, so Solange does it. Solange is not afraid of him and is fed up with him calling all the shots in Beyonce’s life,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Interestingly, the source says that Beyonce and Jay Z were in a “heated conversation” before the Met Ball. Could that have had something to do with the elevator fight?
“Solange doesn’t like that Jay Z is so controlling. That’s why Beyonce didn’t do anything, because Solange was coming to HER defense. Solange and Beyonce are extremely tight and Solange has always been very protective of her. Obviously Solange couldn’t take it anymore and flipped out,” the source says.
Beyonce’s Bad ‘Influence’ Instagram — Was It Directed At Solange?
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, after the elevator brawl, Beyonce posted a prayer to God on her Instagram, asking him to give her “discernment” and “strength” to separate herself from “anyone who is not a good influence.”
Could this message have been directed at the people closest to her — Solange and/or Jay Z?
