Everyone has been speculating about the elevator fight between Jay Z and Solange at the Met Gala, but what was the real cause of this incident? E! News has finally confirmed what went on.
It is now confirmed that Jay Z was getting a little too close to designer Rachel Roy, who is also the ex-wife of his former business partner Damon Dash.
A source close to the Carters told E! News:
At the gala, Rachel was being really flirtatious with Jay. Once everyone was at the Boom Boom Room for the after-party, her flirtations were elevated.
Beyoncé approached Rachel to let her know the behavior was disrespectful and she wanted her out of their lives for good.
Solange came over to have her sister’s back, and things got heated with her and Rachel. Jay said some disrespectful things to Beyoncé and Solange as the confrontation was going down. That’s why all hell broke loose in the elevator and why Beyoncé just stood back and let Solange hit Jay
Solange’s primary residence is in New Orleans and since the incident she has returned home to take care of her son, trying to get back to normal.
As for Beyonce and Jay Z, the couple was spotted together a few days after the incident enjoying a Nets game.
The Standard Hotel released a statement saying that the employee who leaked the elevator video had been fired for breaching the hotel’s security policies and recording the confidential CCTV video.
Since the incident occurred, there has been no response from Rachel Roy’s people, however her ex-Damon Dash tweeted the following:
“I am actually impressed with her independent spirit, she seems like a fighter”
