solange knowles rachel roy

We promise this will be the last time we mention elevator gate, but we think we might know what caused the infamous fight between Solange Knowles and Jay Z at the Met Gala a few weeks ago. Probably.

It’s being reported that Jay Z was apparently getting too close to designer Rachel Roy, and Solange wasn’t happy about it…

“Solange was defending Beyonce in the elevator because Solange finds Jay’s friendship with Rachel to be WAY too close for comfort and it makes Solange very uncomfortable,” a ‘source’ told Hollywood Life.

“Beyonce also confronted Rachel and said, ‘Don’t talk to my sister like that,’ after Rachel confronted Solange.”

Hmm. What do we think guys? Do we think that was the real reason of the fight? We guess we’ll never really know, but Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange want us all to forget about it as they have moved on from the incident, so they want us to do the same.

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident,” reads a joint statement released today.  “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 apologised to each other and we have moved forward as a united family. The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behaviour 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.”

Let that be the end of it.
