Beyonce jetted off to New Orleans to hang with her sister Solange Knowles. The singer posted the picture to Instagram with the caption, “New Orleans May17th 2014.” The caption is probably added to quell the rumors that the sisters are on the outs after Solange went berserk on Jay Z in an elevator in New York.
The family recently released a statement that they were moving forward after the beat down with both Jay and Solange accepting their roles in the incident.
People can’t stop wondering what caused Solange Knowles to go berserk on Jay Z in an elevator. The latest rumor is that he had a flirtatious encounter with Rachel Roy which annoyed Beyonce. He reportedly made disrespectful remarks to Beyonce and Solange leading to the elevator smack down seen around the world.
E! News reports:
“At the gala, Rachel was being flirtatious with Jay. Once everyone was at the Boom Boom Room for the after-party, her flirtations were elevated.
Beyoncé approached Rachel to let her know the behavior was disrespectful and she wanted her out of their lives for good. Solange came over to have her sister’s back, and things got heated with her and Rachel. Jay said some disrespectful things to Beyoncé and Solange as the confrontation was going down. That’s why all hell broke loose in the elevator and why Beyoncé just stood back and let Solange hit Jay.”
Days after a video leaked of Solange Knowles physically attacking Jay Z, the two along with Beyonce have issued a statement on the incident. In a statement to the Asssociated Press, the Knowles-Carter trio said:
“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. 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.”
There you have it.
The Standard hotel where Solange was caught on tape attacking Jay Z has fired the person who leaked the tape to TMZ. On the video Beyonce’s sister is seen raining blows and kicks on her brother-in-law.
In a statement to CNN, a hotel spokesperson said:
“The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ. The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies.”
The rep says the hotel will turn over its information to authorities.
Rumor has it the person was paid six figures.
Last week while leaving an afterparty at a New York Hotel following the Met Gala, Solange Knowles flew into a rage while they were in an elevator and punched and kicked Jay Z. This all went down in the presence of her sister Beyonce. It was all caught on the surveillance camera on the elevator and now the tape has been made public
No word on what set off Solange, but it is clear she was angry. She had to be restrained by a bodyguard. At one point Beyonce briefly stood in front of Jay and towards the she stands in front of Solange while Jay exited the elevator.
When the elevator door opened they family tried to put on a brave face but Solange looked angry and Jay Z looked shell shocked and a bit disheveled. Only person smiling was Beyonce.
Bey and Solange left in one car and Jay in another.
