Beyonce took to her Instagram on May 7 — two days after her sister, Solange, attacked Jay Z in a hotel elevator at a Met Gala after-party on May 5 — to share a prayer about getting rid of the people in her life who are negative influences. Could the message have been about her own sister?
After a video of Solange punching and kicking Beyonce‘s husband, Jay Z, in an elevator during a Met Gala after-party at the Standard Hotel in NYC went viral on May 12, many fans wondered why Bey appeared to be standing idly by while all the action went down. Now a revealing Instagram post seems to provide some insight into Beyonce’s apparent indifference during the brawl.
Beyonce On Elevator Attack? — Singer Instagrams About Bad Influence After Fight
Beyonce hardly lifted a finger to stop sister Solange from attacking her husband after the Met Ball on May 5. Perhaps that’s because, as her Instagram post suggests, she’s putting all the negativity in her life in God’s hands and praying that he will give her “discernment and strength to separate myself from anyone who is not a good influence.”
In the post, Beyonce also asks for guidance from God on how to “choose my friends wisely.” It certainly seems like Queen Bey could be talking about Solange.
We don’t know what really went down during the elevator attack, but it definitely doesn’t look like Beyonce or Jay Z did anything to provoke that kind of violence. Queen Bey also doesn’t seem at all surprised or ruffled by Solange’s vicious outburst, which leads us to believe that this might not be the first time that she’s lashed out like this.
If that’s the case, it would make sense that, no matter how much she loves her sister, Beyonce might want to banish that kind of toxic drama from her life.
