And another one…
Solange Knowles’ beat down of Jay Z may have been part of her sister act.
Beyonce’s younger sibling didn’t like the way her brother-in-law Hova was hovering over designer Rachel Roy at the Met Gala after-party May 5, sources told the Daily News.
Before Knowles erupted in a fury of fists and feet in an elevator, smacking Jay Z several times, the soul singer had yelled at Roy to keep her distance, sources said.
Knowles, 27, unceremoniously told the designer, “Anyone who gets close to Jay has to be warned and deal with her as a sister,” a source told US Magazine.
Jay Z reportedly responded by telling Beyoncé’s little sis that she was “out of line” for mouthing off to Roy.
Tensions were high over the rapper’s decision to keep the party going solo at another bash thrown by Rihanna — where he was likely to cross paths with Roy again, this time without the sisters present, a source said.
Let us find out that Solange is one of the executive producers on “Cheaters”!
“Rachel is a little too close to Jay Z,” a source told the Daily News.
“Solange doesn’t like it, and Beyoncé doesn’t like it.”
Roy used to be married to Damon Dash, Jay Z’s former business partner.
The two had a falling out a few years ago.
Is THIS what made Dame Dash post this Instagram photo just hours after news of the fade broke??
Petty. We thought it was all good with Shawn and his ex-BFF?
Roy, no stranger to conflict herself, didn’t respond well when Knowles told her she was “too close” to Jay Z, a source close to the scene said.
“Rachel is combative and a tough girl, she didn’t back down,” the source said.
Both Beyoncé and Jay Z got in the middle of their words at the Boom Boom room at The Standard hotel, and the trio decided to leave.
The Knowles-Carter family has yet to respond to the release of the elevator surveillance tape Monday.
We’re not sure what Solange thought was going on between Rachel and Jay, but it sounds like Rachel would have gladly engaged the younger Knowles in a fade. Can you imagine? Jiggaman would be the hip-hop Simon Cowell if he were to be caught cheating on his wife with ex-homie’s ex-wife.
