With all of the reports circling about the reason behind Solange and Jay Z’s elevator throw-down, one of the most shocking is that it had something to do with Rachel Roy — especially because they actually went to the Met Ball together in 2012!
Before there was Solange Knowles V. Jay Z, there was Solange and her BFF Rachel Roy. On May 5, Solange and Beyonce both confronted Rachel which “ruined the whole night,” HollywoodLife.com learned exclusively — but exactly two years before that Rachel accompanied Solange to the Met Ball!
Rachel Roy & Solange Knowles’ Friendship
On May 7, 2012, two years before the fight went down, Solange wore a dress by Rachel to the Met Ball, and she walked the carpet with the designer herself, and they definitely looked super chummy.
We’ve got to assume there was some sort of falling out between Solange and the Knowles sisters — because on May 2, 2014 — just three days before the Met Ball drama, Rachel posted a throwback pic of her with Solange on the carpet!
This really comes as a shock to us, since we’ve been told she was the reason for the fight!
Rachel Roy Caused Jay Z-Solange Knowles Fight
“Solange was defending Beyoncé in the elevator because Solange finds Jay’s friendship with Rachel to be WAY too close for comfort and it makes Solange very uncomfortable,” a source close to Solange told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. Earlier in the night, Rachel approached Solange “in a confrontational way,” and then Beyonce joined in.
“Beyoncé also confronted Rachel and said, ‘Don’t talk to my sister like that,’ after [Rachel] confronted Solange,” our source continued — what a tangled web!
Rachel and Jay Z do have a close friendship, another source confirmed to us, but it looks like Rachel had one with Solange, too!
Are you shocked they used to be friends, HollywoodLifers?
