New York Daily News reports that Beyonce’s sister Solange lashed out at Jay Z in her astonishing elevator attack after the music mogul said he was attending Rihanna’s Met Ball after-party without his wife, it has been reported.
The blazing row was actually sparked by Jay Z, who snapped at Solange when two of her friends tried to get into the after-party at The Standard hotel in Manhattan by saying they were friends of the rapper.
And it was when Solange demanded that she, her superstar sibling and Jay Z leave the party that Jay Z said he was heading off to Rihanna’s bash without Beyonce, prompting Solange to hit out at him.
A source said Solange’s pals wouldn’t leave and kept name dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers.
The Management went to Julius (Beyonce’s bodyguard) and said there’s a problem.
Jay Z soon got wind of it and snapped at Solange, saying don’t use my name. This in turn prompted Solange to insist that she wanted to leave the bash.
On the way out, Jay Z said he’d be heading to Up & Down on West 14th Street, where Rihanna was holding her own post-Met Ball bash, a second source said.
Allegedly, the star said he didn’t need extra security because Beyonce was not joining him.
The source said Solange, who seemed drunk and irritated, said: “Why can’t you go home?” telling Beyonce “Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?”
But Jay Z replied: “You’re not the one to talk”, which sent Solange into a rage. Once inside the elevator, she started punching and kicking her brother-in-law“ an attack that was caught on surveillance video and leaked to TMZ.com on Monday.
Ultimately, the rapper decided against going to Rihanna’s party and he was seen getting into a separate car as Beyonce and Solange left together.
