The sisters are all right! After a video came out on May 12 of Solange violently attacking her sister Beyonce’s husband, Jay Z, in a hotel elevator, many feared that the Knowles family was crumbling before our eyes. But two days later Beyonce took the matter in her own hands, and reassured everyone that she and her sister are not feuding with a subtle yet touching message.
Neither Beyonce nor Jay Z have actually spoken about the shocking altercation involving Solange Knowles, but now both have made public statements in other ways to show that the family is okay after the violent May 5 fight.
Beyonce Posts Loving Message For Solange Knowles
Just hours after Jay and Solange reportedly showed a united front by going to a jewelry store in New York City together on May 13, Beyonce went on a photo-posting spree to do the same thing. The “Countdown” singer posted four pictures of herself and Solange in quick succession.
All of the pictures show Beyonce and Solange looking unbelievably happy — they’re hugging in one picture, dancing in another, and Beyonce is lovingly resting her head on her little sister’s shoulder in one more.
Just a day after Solange made everyone worry that there was a deeper issue between her, Beyonce and Jay by deleting all but one picture of her sister from her Instagram, Bey used the social media site to send a more touching, reassuring message. Her picture-posting spree seems to be so that everyone can be reminded of the happy times, and see that Beyonce isn’t cutting her sister out of her life. Bey also seems to be expressing that the conflict has brought her closer to Solange.
Solange Knowles: Why She Flipped On Jay Z
It’s a statement that probably needed to be made, too. With the video of Solange and Jay Z’s fight in the Standard Hotel elevator on May 5 being so violent, it raised a ton of questions and lifted the curtain on Jay Z and Beyonce’s sparkling public images.
Solange lost her temper over a few things — she’s been frustrated with Jay’s lack of involvement in promoting her career, and she also thought Jay was disrespecting his wife — her sister — with his “too close” friendship with longtime friend Rachel Roy. “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 told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Like any family, these stars are working through some issues. But if Beyonce’s Instagrams are any indication, they’re all devoted to working things out rather than let them get worse. Are you convinced that the sisters made up, HollywoodLifers?
