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.
