The Knowles-Carter Family Finally Releases A Statement On Elevator-Gate

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it.

Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.

The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false,” the statement continued. “At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”

HA! Not likely. But I’ll try. Solange Knowles and Jay Z (and presumably also Beyonce) released an exclusive statement to the Associated Press about the now notorious elevator fight following the Met Ball, which came to light on Monday when security footage was posted to TMZ. To remind you, in case is hasn’t been playing on loop in your mind like it has in mine, the footage showed Solange wailing on Jay Z in an elevator as Beyonce looked on and a security guard tried to intervene. A whole mess of theories about what the fight could have been about have been circulating since and it doesn’t look like Solange, Jay or Bey is gonna give us any further details. Therefore, I shall continue to assume Jay farted when the elevator doors shut and Solange was not havin’ that. [AP]

Report: Solange Thought Jay Z Was Getting “Too Close” To Rachel Roy

  • So Solange was defending her sister! A source tells The New York Daily News that Beyonce’s little sis attacked Jay Z in an elevator after the Met Ball because she thought her brother-in-law was getting “too close” to designer Rachel Roy. (Rachel is also the ex of Jay’s former business partner, Damon Dash.) An inebriated Solange allegedly yelled at Rachel at the after-party, warning her to stay away from her sister’s husband. “Rachel is a little too close to Jay Z,” the source said. “Solange doesn’t like it and Beyoncé doesn’t like it.” In the elevator, Solange flipped out after Jay told her she’d been “out of line” and because he wanted to go out clubbing after the party. I guess Beyoncé didn’t write that song “Jealous” over nothing!  [New York Daily News]
  • Meanwhile, the Standard Hotel has identified and fired the employee who sold the video of Solange attacking Jay Z in the elevator. TMZ bought it for $250,000 after it was shopped around to other gossip outlets for five days. [AP, Page Six] Keep reading »

  • WE HAVE AN ANSWER! Sort of. Maybe. The New York Daily News is claiming Solange Knowles drunkenly attacked Jay Z in the elevator of The Standard Hotel because she was upset her friends couldn’t get into an after-party. The source claims that two of Solange’s non-famous friends, who weren’t invited to the Met Ball, used Jay Z’s name to try to get in. “They wouldn’t leave and kept name dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers,” the source dished. “Management went to Julius (Beyonce’s bodyguard) and said there’s a problem.” Jay reportedly told Solange not to use his name and she got upset, only getting more irate when Jay wanted to go to Rihanna’s after-party by himself while Beyoncé headed home.

Some Thoughts On That Jay Z/Solange Brawl, Female-On-Male Violence & Fights Between Siblings

Some Thoughts On That Jay Z/Solange Brawl, Female-On-Male Violence & Fights Between Siblings

Like, oh, basically everyone everywhere, I’ve been totally consumed with thoughts about the fight between Jay Z and Solange Knowles following the Met Ball a few weeks ago, security footage of which was leaked online yesterday. I’m a fangirl of both Knowles sisters, and my belief in everlasting love is tied maybe a little too closely to the marriage between Jay and Beyonce, so as a Carter Family obsessive, this story is impossible to ignore. Given that Beyonce and Jay Z’s life is presented so flawlessly to the public — even their past troubles have been presented after the fact with a glossy veneer of hindsight and lessons learned — the elevator brawl between Beyonce’s husband and her little sister Solange reveals a rather large chink in the Carter Family armor, provoking loads of understandable questions and speculation.

Chances are good that we’ll never know the details, and even if anyone involved does explain what went down, it’ll be carefully worded. To be very, very clear though: Solange Knowles violently attacking Jay Z, for any reason, is not okay. It’s assault. How this will play out legally, now that the tape has been released to the public and thus to the attention of authorities, remains to be seen.

Whenever I do hear about a woman being violent towards a man, I’m forced to confront my own history of such behavior. I can count the number of times where I’ve “snapped” to such a degree on less than two hands, only three of which actually resulted in physical contact. They all involved men I was very close to and love/loved. (I’ve never been in a physical fight with another woman and very rarely verbally fight with other women.) Keep reading »

Beyoncé Posts Prayer On Instagram While Solange Deletes All Pics Of Bey

What is going on in the Carter-Knowles family? [SheKnows]
  • Solange’s attack on Jay Z in an elevator wasn’t an isolated outburst at the Met Ball: she reportedly yelled at a group of people, including designer Rachel Roy, during an after party and Beyonce “got in the middle of it.” No one has a clue was Solange was yelling about, though. [US Weekly]
  • Also, Solange is reportedly known to have angry tantrums. [US Weekly] Keep reading »
