Solange vs. Jay Z

This May, security footage obtained by TMZ showed Beyoncé looking on as her sister Solange physically attacked Jay Z in the elevator of the Standard Hotel after the annual Met Gala. Since the clip had no audio, the sound everyone heard was the roar of wild speculation. Did Solange catch Jay trying to sneak off to Rihanna's afterparty? Were Solange's friends name-dropping Jay at the door despite not having tickets? Was Solange off her rumored medication? Why was Beyoncé just standing there?! These questions still plague us, since the trio released a statement three days later that said both Jay Z and Solange acknowledged their roles in the "private matter" and there would be no further comment. The in-laws were seen shortly after, shopping for jewelry and looking like nothing happened. Eventually the world moved on, though Beyoncé half-acknowledged the fight in her August remix of "Flawless" featuring Nicki Minaj, rapping, "We escalate up in this bitch like elevators/Of course sometimes shit goes down when there's a billion dollars on an elevator."
