Did Jay Z say or do something to make Solange go ballistic on him in a Standard Hotel elevator at a Met Gala after-party on May 5? His rival Drake seems to think so, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Everyone has their theories as to why Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z at a Met Gala after-party on May 5, a shocking fight that was revealed a week later when surveillance footage was leaked. A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that even Drake claims to know why Beyonce‘s little sister lashed out at her famous brother-in-law. Find out what he has to say on the matter.
Drake: Why He Think Solange Knowles Went Ballistic On Jay Z
Drake’s been provoked by Jay more than a few times, so apparently he thinks that Solange was just Jay’s latest victim. “He thinks that HOV probably said some f**ked up stuff to her, or tried to come off like he’s the illest person who’s ever walked the face of the earth, like he portrays in his music,” the insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Drake also thinks Solange was trying to put the rapper in his place. “Solange probably got tired of Jay Z’s hype and tried to bring him back to earth,” the source adds.
And no surprise here, but Drake actually enjoyed seeing his hip-hop rival take a few shots from a girl. And like everyone else, one viewing of the footage just wasn’t enough: “D thought it was funny and watched it on
repeat about ten times while laughing his ass off.” Sounds about right.
Solange: Was She Defending Big Sis Beyonce?
Aside from Drake’s theories though, another source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Solange lashed out at Jay Z for being too controlling of Beyonce.
“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,” the source said after the video was released. “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.”
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Do you think Solange was trying to defend Beyonce, or do you think Jay Z set her off, like Drake thinks? Let us know!
