Solange Knowles: Furious Jay Z Broke His Promise To Help Her Career

Tue, May 13, 2014 3:56pm EDT by 20 Comments

A new report claims that Jay Z had vowed to create a tremendous amount of attention for Solange’s upcoming third album, and as the release date got closer and closer without any building buzz, Solange got angrier and angrier at her brother-in-law.

Jay Z has the keys to the music industry, so Beyonce‘s sister Solange Knowles must have been thrilled when he reportedly promised that he’d help her yet-to-be-released third album gain exposure. But when she saw how little he was actually doing to create buzz for her career, well, we all saw how mad that allegedly made her.

Jay Z Doesn’t Help Solange Knowles’ Career

“Solange is so angry because Jay Z promised to give her more help with her career and when she brought it up again the night of the gala, he just told her he didn’t have time to work with her in the studio,” a source tells MailOnline.

“He hasn’t kept his promise to her,” the source continues. “Jay keeps telling her to give him some time and he will sit down and write with her and then get her into the studio but he hasn’t it done it yet.” And as the video of Solange attacking Jay inside a Standard Hotel elevator on May 5 proves, the singer completely lost her patience.

Solange’s anxiety and anger is reportedly connected to her sister, Jay’s wife, Beyonce as well, because having an album with no buzz whatsoever is even more discouraging when your sister is Queen Bey. “Solange wants a major career like her sister and she’s tired of living in her shadow,” the source says. “Jay Z promised he would help take her to the next level but he never found time to keep his word. Enough was enough for Solange! She flipped out and screamed at Jay Z that if he didn’t want to help, just say so and stop pulling her chain!”

Solange Attacks Jay Z: Defending Beyonce?

Solange’s reasoning for attacking her brother-in-law is still a matter of debate though, as a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the “Losing You” singer went after Jay on Beyonce’s behalf.

“Solange doesn’t like the way Jay Z controls Beyonce. Beyonce would never speak up to him or defend herself, so Solange does it,” the source said. “Solange is not afraid of him and is fed up with him calling all the shots in Beyonce’s life.”

What’s even more likely, is that Solange’s animosity was growing towards Jay because of all these things, and it finally exploded at the Met Gala after-party on May 5.

But what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know.
