in Society

When a leaked surveillance video footage showed Jay Z being attacked by his wife’s younger sister Solange Knowles in an elevator at the Standard Hotel following a Met Gala after-party, their fans got shocked and were left wondering what sparked the fight And now, the reason behind the incident has been revealed: it had something to do with American fashion designer Rachel Roy!

Beyonce, Solange, Jay Z and Rachel Roy all attended the Met Gala after-party at the Standard hotel on May 5, 2014. Solange saw that the New York fashion designer hovered “too close” to her sister’s husband and she didn’t like it. The pair reportedly exchanged angry words that led to Jay Z and Beyonce stepping in. At some point, the Brooklyn hip-hop master told his sister-in-law that she was "out of line" for shouting at Rachel Roy. The trio then left the party before Solange Knowles violently attacked Jay Z in the lift of the Boom Boom Room.

Days after the fight, Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange Knowles finally broke their silence on Thursday (May 15, 201). “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," the three said in a statement. "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."
