UPDATE, May 14, 2014: According to the Daily News, the fight was sparked when two of Solange’s friends tried to attend the after party at the Standard Hotel.
The friends weren’t dressed in proper attire, and they kept name dropping Jay Z at the door. Management went to the bodyguard and advised him that there was a problem.
Jay got upset with Solange and let her know to stop using his name. She soon wanted to leave the party.
Rihanna had her own after party, and Jay Z wanted to attend. He called ahead to let it be known he would be showing up alone, and for some reason, Solange wasn’t having it.
“She seemed drunk and irritated,” said a second source. “She said, ‘Why can’t you go home?’ and to Beyonce ‘Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?’”
“You’re one to talk,” Jay Z responded, according to the Daily News’ source. That caused Solange to snap, where she attacked him, on the elevator.
According to the report, the three superstars were in an elevator at the Standard Hotel after attending an after party for the prestigious Met Gala. In the video Solange lunges at Jay after stepping onto the elevator and makes repeated attempts to kick and punch him. A large man–presumably their bodyguard–holds Solange back while Beyonce stands observant. At one point Jay grabs Solange’s foot in mid kick but never appears to retaliate.
There is no word on what the argument was about, but all three walked out of the building together. Solange and Beyonce left in one car and the bodyguard sends Jay into another vehicle.
Jay Z and Beyonce recently announced that they were going on a 20 city stadium tour starting in June and released stills from their “On The Run” video.
