The post-2014 Met Gala elevator fight between Jay-Z and Solange Knowles is one of the most infamous elevetor fights Hollywood has ever seen.
To this day, no one knows exactly what sparked it, but it’s widely assumed that Solange was defending sister Beyoncé, possibly even reacting to one of Jay-Z’s alleged infidelities.
Some say it was sparked by Jay-Z flirting with an unnamed female at the Met Gala, but we guess we’ll never know the whole truth. We’re just putting pieces together based on Bey and Jay’s albums, and countless rumours.
We know that some parents would be mortified to see their grown children engaging in such behaviour, but Matthew Knowles couldn’t have had a more opposite reaction. He actually found the whole thing rather amusing…
“I have to tell you, I laughed so hard,” he told Wendy Williams on US chat show Wendy.
“I laughed so hard because, if you know Solange — that’s Solange. You just never know what you’re going to get… a firecracker. Don’t know where she gets that from.
“Then Beyoncé would be in the corner, quiet, just kinda, like ‘When y’all finish, let me know.’ So I laughed.”
We definitely didn’t expect that reaction, but we’re glad that he saw the funny side. Let’s hope that it’s all been brushed under the carpet – after all, it was four years ago!
