Jay Z and Solange Knowles were captured on video fighting in an elevator after the 2014 Met Ball Gala after-part, May 5. However, on several occasion Jay Z and Beyonce have watched Solange’s son, and Hov and Solange even teamed up to make a song for Bey. So how could things have gone so wrong?
A security camera caught Solange Knowles, 27, slugging Jay Z, 44, in an elevator, as Beyonce watched, following an after-party at NYC’s Standard Hotel 2014 Met Ball Gala on May 5. But these two were not always enemies and have certainly managed a working family relationship over the years.

Solange and Jay Z grabbed some studio time together in 2006 to help Beyonce record her single “Upgrade U.” The single also had help from producers Swizz Beats, Blowfly (Clarence Reid), and Cameron Wallace.
Jay and his sister-in-law also managed to have some family time at Coachella, where Solange performed in April. Hov and Bey stopped by the music festival in Indio, Calif. for a surprise visit, and Beyonce jumped up on stage with her little sis and the two did an impromptu performance of “Losing You.”
Beyonce and Jay Z also regularly watch Solange’s 9-year-old son, Daniel.

So how could things have spiraled out of control so drastically? How could this family relationship have deteriorated into a fight in an elevator?
Solange was seen punching, kicking, and slapping Jay Z in the video that hit the internet on May 12. Beyonce was standing back from the whole fight but you can clearly see that she wanted no part in the whole thing.
