The Internet broke yesterday when TMZ circulated a video of Beyonce’s sister Solange attacking Jay Z after the Met Gala. Since then, the video has caused a rash of reactions, think-pieces, theories, explainers, memes, etc., etc.
While Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange are yet to comment, a source tells the New York Daily News that Solange attacked Jay Z because he expressed interest in going to Rihanna’s Met Gala after-party without Beyonce.
This all reportedly started when Solange brought her “non-famous” friends to the Ball who were using Jay Z’s name to get in, which the source says ticked off Jay.
Afterward, Jay said he’d be attending Rihanna’s Met Ball after-party without Beyonce, which Solange didn’t take kindly to.
According to the source, things continued to get heated, and this is the conversation ahead of the elevator incident:
“She said, ‘Why can’t you go home?’ and to Beyonce ‘Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?'”
“You’re one to talk,” Jay Z said.
Then the throwing of stilettos (of the shoe kind) started. No one involved has commented on the video, but since then Solange has deleted all of her photos of Beyonce from her Instagram.
