It’s been a day since TMZ released a bombshell video showing Solange attempting to attack her brother-in-law, Jay-Z, inside an elevator after last week’s Met Gala. Although the surveillance video quickly set the Internet alight, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Solange haven’t said a word. In fact, the Carters were spotted at a Brooklyn Nets playoff game last night having a grand time.
While most of us were caught off guard by the altercation, a “source” close to the Knowles-Carters clan told Fox News that the elevator scene was “no great surprise,” because tempers have flared between the trio before.
“Solange has flipped her lid like that before,” a source told Us Weekly. “She is genuinely a sweet and nice person but she also keeps sh-t real. She can take a small thing and it triggers her.”
The same night of the kerfuffle with her brother-in-law, Solange also allegedly traded words with designer and friend Rachel Roy and Beyoncé “got in the middle of it.”
Despite the tense scene and the widespread reaction, the Knowles sisters seem to be in a good place (although Solange reportedly deleted all of her sister’s pictures from Instagram). Days after the elevator row, Bey, Solo, and Miss Tina flew down to Costa Rica to celebrate Kelly Rowland’s nuptials.
To be clear, family drama happens; most of us have experienced it before. But when you live your life in the spotlight as Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Solange do, when that drama is made public it quickly become fodder for the news and intense speculation.
So while we wait for more “sources” to pour out, or a word from the Knowles-Carter clan explaining exactly what went down, what do you think led up to Solange and Jay-Z’s altercation?
