Step aside, hot celebrity beef coming through: TMZ has released video of what appears to be a physical altercation between R&B singer Solange Knowles and Jay Z in an elevator as they departed a Met Gala after-party held at New York’s Standard Hotel. Also, Beyoncé was there!
What could have prompted Solange to viciously kick her brother-in-law with high heels that probably qualify as deadly instruments? Well, that’s a matter of some speculation.
@SLeasca I know some people that are extremely extremely close to JayZ’s entourage, and evidently, JayZ innocently offered Solange a TicTac.

Jay-Z probably just farted in that elevator.

A critical question: could Beyoncé’s eyewitness testimony clear anything up?
Of course, there’s always a chance this is another one of Jimmy Kimmel’s irritating hoaxes.

Or maybe Solange just felt like a Real Hero that night.

We’re also not prepared to rule out anime cosplay run amok.
Then there are the darker theories—you know, the Illuminati stuff.
Solange probably knows Jay-Z is an illuminati demon & not an actual decent human being

Solange found out she was the illuminati sacrifice and resisted. That’s the only explanation I can come up with…

Jay probably ain’t allow Solange to use him as a reference on her illuminati application

But some suspected that a different sort of cover-up lay at the heart of the fight.
Maybe Solange just realised that her sisters daughter is named after Jays ex and first love Blu Cantrell

Some internet conspiracy theorists think Solange is actually Beyoncé’s daughter. https://t.co/HmTTXgOdpt

My sources at #BlackTwitter are reporting that Solange went off cause she wants full custody of her biological daughter, Blue Ivy.

Will the world ever know the truth? Yeah, like we’re ready for that.
