The Great Elevator Fight Mystery of 2014 may come closer to being solved. In case you don't recall, there was a huge blowout between Solange Knowles, Beyonce and Jay Z in an elevator as the trio were exiting the 2014 Met Gala — and Solange's violent outburst, which featured kicking, screaming and throwing purses, was caught on video.
The video, however, had no sound, leading the world to wonder: What the Heck did Hov do to earn that kind of wrath from his own sister-in-law?
One prevalent and recurring rumor is that Jay Z was allegedly getting too close with fashion designer Rachel Roy at the event. Adding another twist to the torrid tale? Roy is the ex-wife of Jigga's former business partner, Damon Dash. Drama!
Since then, no one involved as commented on why the elevator fight went down, but Solange may have silently confirmed everyone's suspicions at the 2014 Council of Fashion Designers of America awards last night in New York City.
Apparently Roy and Solange kept far, far away from each other at the event, or at least tried to. "Rachel looked uncomfortable," a source told Us Weekly. "They obviously didn't want to run into Solange, and Solange's people also tried to steer clear of them."
Why go through all of that effort if Roy had nothing to do with the fight, why would they still be trying to evade and elude one another?
But a better question: Why on Earth would Jay Z think it's a good idea to flirt with another woman in the presence of his wife Beyonce, who is possibly the most perfect woman on the planet? Jigga what?
