Jay Z thought Solange was being totally inappropriate when she publicly screamed at Rachel during the Standard Hotel’s Met Ball after-party on May 5. Jay reportedly tried to remove Solange from the sticky situation and stop her from making a scene, and that’s when she launched her shocking elevator attack!
Solange Knowles was furious with Rachel Roy over her “too close for comfort” friendship with Jay Z, as a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, and she clearly let her emotions get the better of her when the fashion designer approached her in the Standard Hotel’s Boom Boom Room on May 5. Not surprisingly, Jay Z was upset about Solange’s public outburst, which is why he scolded the “Losing You” singer and told her she was “out of line,” according to a new report. And you know what happened after that!
Jay Z On Solange Yelling At Rachel Roy: He Told Solange She Was Out Of Line
Solange was overheard yelling at Rachel and her seatmates at the Met Ball after-party at the Standard, not long before she viciously lashed out at Jay Z in the elevator as the pair were leaving the event with Beyonce.
“Solange was yelling that anyone who gets close to Jay has to be warned and deal with her as a sister,” a source tells Us Weekly. Things quickly took a turn for the worse when Beyonce and Jay Z stepped in and tried to get Solange to leave the party.
Jay Z and Rachel have been friends for years. She was previously married to Damon Dash, who was close friends and business partners with Jay before they had a falling out. Apparently, he didn’t like seeing his sister-in-law freaking out on his good friend.
“Jay said something small to her along the lines of, ‘You are out of line,'” another source tells Us Weekly. “Solange was being a loudmouth and snapped at Jay for trying to calm her down and get her out of there.”
The insider adds that “there were a few other things” said but insists that it “isn’t the big deal people are making it into.” But that’s not what we hear!
