Beyonce, 32, and Jay Z, 44, and Solange Knowles, 28, have found themselves in a drama triangle ever since the elevator incident on May 5. The VMAs were no exception! After Solange wasn’t seen in the audience to watch Bey accept the Video Vanguard Award, rumors ran wild that the sisters fought backstage. We have the true scoop!
Beyonce & Solange Elevator Fight: Truth Behind Rift Between The Sisters
There was NO drama between Bay, Jay and Solange at the VMAs. Solange was right by her sister for the big night — just not on camera!
“Solange hung out backstage with her sister in her dressing room. She saw everyone and was backstage at the bar and saw Nicki and Taylor,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Solange wasn’t in the audience to watch her sister receive an award, but that’s because she has new music to make!
“She had to leave because she is busy finishing up her album. She was talking to everyone and she had a great time. She was there for a little bit. No one says anything about Tina not being there, and they aren’t feuding,” our insider says. “Tina” is Beyonce and Solange’s mom.
“Solange was with her in the dressing room,” the insider explains. “And was in the hallway and she didn’t go out and sit on the floor.” Solange was totally there for her older sister that night, but just behind the scenes! We’re happy to hear the sisters and Jay Z aren’t feuding.
Beyonce & Jay Z Enlist Solange Knowles To Help Dispel Split Rumors
Despite their PDA, rumor still has it that Bey and Jay will split up for good when their On The Run tour ends in mid September. When the duo were in New Orleans, Louisiana on July 22 for their tour, they had a secret family outing with Solange!
The trio had dinner at Kingfish in the Big Easy. “They were all really nice. They sat at the bar for a min. After about 20 minutes, Solgange asked if they could get a table,” Mona Collins, hostess at Kingfish told HollywoodLife.com. “Jay asked me if he could smoke a cigar and we allowed him to and cornered off an area to them to be alone.”
