Solange attacked Jay-Z because he wanted to party without Beyoncé

I’m not really sure that we’ll ever get the actual truth about the whole Jay-Z / Solange fight that went down at the Met Gala, but we at least have some random “source’s” account of what went down now, anyway. Apparently, everything was going sorta okay, but then two things happened to get Solange all agitated and made her snap:

1. Apparently a bunch of Solange’s friends turned up to the Gala claiming to be guests of Jay-Z himself. This pissed off Jay, who told her never to use his name again and she sulked off in a huff.

2. After the Gala, Jay said he was going to Rihanna’s afterparty alone – i.e. without Beyoncé – which was said to be the final straw and led Solange to lose her mind.

From The New York Daily News:

“Why can’t you go home?” a drunken Solange Knowles said to her brother-in-law as they left the swanky May 5 Met Gala after-party, a source told The News.

Then the 27-year-old singer turned to her 32-year-old big sis Beyoncé.

“Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?” Solange asked, according to the source.

An incensed Jay Z took offense to Solange getting involved in his business.

“You’re one to talk,” he shot back at Solange, the source said.

Jay Z’s sharp reply sent Solange into a violent rage. She attacked Jay Z with a series of furious kicks and punches in a three-minute outburst that was caught on surveillance video and leaked Monday. The bad vibes between Jay Z and Solange started 15 minutes earlier when a group of Solange’s nonfamous friends from Brooklyn showed up uninvited at the star-studded soiree, a source told The News.

“Two of her friends, who were not dressed for the Met ball, showed up at the Standard and caused a scene downstairs,” the source said.

“They wouldn’t leave and kept name-dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers. Management went to Julius (Beyoncé’s bodyguard) and said there’s a problem.”

A source said Jay Z got wind of it and snapped at Solange — saying “don’t use my name.”

Is any of this true? Who knows. It seems kinda extreme for Solange to be flying off the handle about that – especially considering Beyoncé was standing there and seemingly not caring, but who the hell knows.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z chilled courtside after the Solange tape leaked

You’d think that Beyoncé and Jay-Z would be scrambling to smooth shit over in the PR department with some positive spin on Solange‘s beat down on her brother-in-law that broke yesterday, but nah. Instead, they decided to sit courtside at the Nets game at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn last night and looked actually pretty chill.

I don’t think we’ll ever know what went on here, to be honest – and frankly, I think it was generally just a one night beating and they’re probably fine now. Probably too much alcohol and too much of Jay-Z running his mouth or something. Someone said it was probably because Jay cheated on Bey, but sorry, I don’t see it. I think it’s more likely that he said something to Solange to piss her off – what that was, who knows?

Solange beat the shit out of Jay-Z while Beyoncé watched

I don’t know what the hell was going on at the Met Gala, but shit got crazy in an elevator between Jay-Z and Solange. While Beyoncé stood by seemingly doing and saying nothing, her little sister lost her damn mind and went crazy on Jay, physically attacking him by punching and kicking – and doing some screaming, as well.

While a muscle man was around to pull him away, I wonder what the hell happened? Why did Solange just lose her mind after seemingly entering the elevator pretty calmly? Why the hell was Beyoncé just standing there letting all of this happen?

TMZ obtained the security camera footage and reported that Bey and Solange left the building in one car and Jay-Z went with security in another. I can’t wait for the juicy details on this one!

Newsflash: Beyoncé and Jay-Z Are Best Friends with the Obamas

bey jay white house

Just in case you forgot, Beyoncé and Jay-Z love Barack and Michelle Obama, and the First Family love them, too… so much so that Bey and Jay were invited – Blue Ivy in tow – to the White House to celebrate Michelle’s 50th birthday this past weekend.

The party wasn’t short on celebrities – John Legend was there (he and Bey apparently performed together), as were Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Samuel L. Jackson and Smokey Robinson.

We all know by now that a party ain’t a party unless you take photos to post on Instagram/Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook/etc. so Beyoncé made sure to share some of the fun of the day: sitting with Bo, the Obamas’ dog, letting Blue doodle on the floor… laissez les bon temps rouler, as they say.

Could You Go Vegan? Beyonce And Jay Z Are…For 22 Days

Jay+Z+Beyonce+Knowles

Beyoncé and Jay Z are going to be vegans — well, for 22 days at least. Could you take the vegan challenge? Jay Z wants to because he’s turning 44 and wants to use it as an excuse to be healthy or some shit. He wrote on his blog:

On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a “plant-based breakfast” every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…

Why now? There’s something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas day…It just feels right!

So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress…

[...] P.S. B is also joining me.

I bet Gwyneth had part in this. Let’s hope they don’t go full Paltrow.

Are you Vegan? If not, could you be?

(Oh and if you’re wondering “why 22 days?” it’s because Jay Z read somewhere that it takes 22 days to form a habit.)

Jay Z And Beyonce Are Forbes Highest Earning Couple With HOW Much?

Jay Z and Beyoncé are crazy in wealth, placing #1 on Forbes highest-earning celebrity couples list. And with HOW much? Forbes estimates, “$95 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013.”

That sort of number makes me want to type LOL for 5 minutes straight (don’t worry, I won’t.) I can’t even comprehend that much money. How did they get so much much money? Forbes points to the evidence.

Both are musicians at the top of their games, with multiple hits under their belts. Jay Z’s recent Watch the Throne album went platinum and launched a world tour that brought in $1.4 million per night in America. Knowles, who took a short break when her daughter Blue Ivy was born in January last year, was back with a vengeance this year with her Mrs. Carter world tour, which grossed an average $2 million per night.

Then there are their other interests. Jay Z is a part owner of the new Barclays BCS -2.07% Center in Brooklyn, where the Brooklyn Nets play. He sold his stake in the team and now has to dump his share in the arena, too, because he’s started his own sports agency: Roc Nation Sports, which represents star athletes like Kevin Durant and Victor Cruz. Knowles has a fragrance collection and a clothing line called House of Deron.

Here’s the rest of the list, following Bey and J:

2. Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen: $80 million
3. Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie: $50 million
4. Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis: $35 million
5. Kim Kardashian & Kanye West: $30 million

It boggles the mind.
