Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z in an elevator (with Beyoncé present), and we’re still talking about it. Jay and Bey released a statement about it, but still no one is sure why it happened — until now. And it may have something to do with fashion designer Rachel Roy (above with Solange in 2012). From the Daily News:
“Rachel is a little too close to Jay Z,” a source told The News. “Solange doesn’t like it, and Beyoncé doesn’t like it.”
Solange, 27, unceremoniously told the designer that “anyone who gets close to Jay has to be warned and deal with her as a sister,” a source told Us Weekly.
Rumor had it that the brawl was over Jay Z trying to attend Rihanna’s after-party.
Roy, no pushover herself, didn’t back down when Solange told her she was “too close” to Jay Z, a source who was close to the spat said.
“Rachel is combative and a tough girl,” the source said. “She didn’t back down.”
Beyoncé and Jay Z jumped in the middle of the two as they exchanged angry words. At some point, with Solange separated from Roy, Jay Z told his sister-in-law that she was “out of line” for mouthing off to Roy.
And apparently, that’s not the end of it. While everyone else wanted to call it a night, Jay Z wanted to go to Rihanna‘s after party at Up & Down.
The problem with that plan, a source said, was Solange thought Roy was going to be at Up & Down — and it led her to get all UFC on Jay Z in the hotel’s elevator, sources said.
I don’t know what the hell to make of any of this. I guess it’s all as good a theory as any? What do you make of it?
