It’s unclear what started the fight, but after the fight, Jay-Z went in his own car, while the two sisters left together. Have a look at the footage below:
Some additional info that came out on Watch What Happens Live reveals that a couple days after the fight, Solange removed all photos of Beyonce from her Twitter feed except for one. Plus, it was revealed by Page Six that just before Solange’s brawl with Jay-Z, she had a drunken fight with designer Rachel Roy.
Beyoncé’s 27-year-old sister had become drunk and “belligerent,” sources told Page Six, adding that she was “like a pressure cooker waiting to explode.” “Solange had too much to drink and was out of it by the time the performances started after the dinner at the Met Ball — she was dancing like a crazy person,” a source said.
