Ray Rice may be officially reinstated into the NFL off a technicality, but the elevator incident still isn’t completely behind him. This time ,it’s because ABC News obtained more surveillance footage of Rice and his then-fiancee Janay Palmer showing the time after he hit her in the elevator.
None of it is quite as shocking as the footage already seen, but here we see Palmer’s emotional reaction in the time following the incident. We see her emotionally distraught and tearful as she at first rebukes the former star running back when he approaches her. Palmer eventually relents, though; they’re seen kissing while they’re both in handcuffs inside an elevator.
Rice went to court to stop ABC News from releasing this footage. His lawyer Peter Ginsberg said, “This is a time of healing and he, quite naturally, doesn’t want another media showing of what must have been the worst event of his life.” But that wasn’t a good enough reason. Rice lost the case, and that dark cloud still looms.

According to our source, who would like to remain nameless because of his ties with the entertainment industry, Solange Knowles attacked brother-in-law Jay Z because he was being a bit too attentive to designer Rachel Roy at the Met Gala after-party on May 5th.
Our source, who was present at the same event as the Knowles-Carter clan, said that before Solange started going flimode on Jay-Z in the elevator, she reportedly yelled at Roy to keep her distance.
“Jay was talking to Rachel and it looked like they were getting a little too close, so Beyonce approached them and got a little ghetto with them,” the source said. “Not too ghetto, but just enough to let them know that she was there and she wasn’t having that,” he said. “At that time, Jay told Beyonce that she needed to chill out. That’s when Solange hopped in and told Jay and Rachel that they weren’t going to disrespect her sister. Jay told Solange that she needed to calm down and told her that she was out of line for being disrespectful to Rachel. Apparently Solange didn’t like that because that’s when she got real hood on Jay. Jay grabbed both she and Beyonce and proceeded to leave. I thought that was it until the elevator footage hit the internet.”
Apparently, whatever Jay-Z had going on with Rachel Roy triggered Solange’s protective side. When she saw that her sister didn’t like it, she immediately came to her defense. Continue reading

Beyoncé and Jay Z have kept on keepin’ on.
With news of Jay Z’s run-in with sister-in-law Solange Knowles as they were leaving a Met Gala after party taking up a huge chunk of the Internet, The Carters looked to be in perfectly good spirits tonight at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
They were sitting courtside to watch Game 4 of the Nets’ playoff series with the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. Of course Queen Bey looked picture-perfect in jeans and a matching denim shirt, her flowing hair swept to one side.
Jay Z had on his unofficial niform of jeans, a white T-shirt and gold chains and looked unscathed today’s revelations (or Solange’s kicks). Towards the end of the second quarter, Heat superstar LeBron James appeared to exchange a few words with the couple while he waited for a member of the Nets to shoot free throws.
The duo also attended Saturday’s home game, but while they were fully aware of what went down at the after party, the world was in the dark at the time.
Security footage from the Standard hotel elevator (where the apparent altercation took place) hit the web today after being leaked to TMZ. Standard management blasted the security breach, saying in a statement that they were “shocked and disappointed” and “investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation.”
What caused the heated exchange remains a mystery.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few hours, you’re aware that TMZ has obtained footage of what appears to be Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z in an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City.
The alleged altercation went down at a Met Gala after-party last week at the Standard Hotel.
Hours after the alleged altercation, Beyoncé posted a message on Instagram hinting at relationship turmoil in her life.
The post read:
My Prayer to God
Lord, I lift up every one of my relationships to You and ask You to bless them. I pray that each one would be glorifying to You. Help me to choose my friends wisely so I won’t be led astray. Give me discernment and strength to separate myself from anyone who is not a good influence. I release all my relationships to You and pray that Your will be done in each of them.
Beyoncé and Jay Z took in a Brooklyn Nets game Saturday night. Beyoncé posted photos of the two courtside sitting next to actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
A publicist for the Standard Hotel has provided the following statement exclusively to our friends over at TheGrio.com regarding the leaked video footage of Solange attacking Jay Z:
“We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.”
