The mystery has been solved. Why did Solange Knowles attack Jay-Z in an elevator after the Met Gala? According to the Daily News, Jay-Z wanted to attend Rihanna’s after-party instead of heading home with Solange and wife Beyonce.
Because he wanted to attend the party without Beyonce, Solange became angered. A source told Daily News that a drunken Solange said to Jay-Z, “Why can’t you go home?” Then she asked her sister, “Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?” Jay-Z was less than pleased by Solange’s meddling and said, “You’re one to talk.” That’s when Solange snapped.
Earlier on, apparently another incident occurred that began to annoy Jay-Z. A source revealed that Solange had some unwanted guests at the party:
“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.
This kind of behavior from Solange Knowles has reportedly happened before, and that’s why Jay-Z and Beyonce appeared so calm in the video. They expect this from Solange.
