The astonishing elevator attack by Beyoncé’s sister Solange on Jay Z has left many wondering what could have led to such outburst.
According to report, Rihanna was one of the reasons for the dispute as Jay Z while walking to the Standard Hotel elevator told Beyonce and her sister that he was heading home with them but rather he going to Rihanna’s Met Ball after-party without them, which prompted Solange to lash out at her sister’s husband.

Before now, Jay Z and Solange had already argued over her non-famous friend’s using his name to try and gain entrance into star-studded event at The Standard hotel in Manhattan and he was said to have snapped at her.
“Two of her friends, who were not dressed for the Met ball, showed up at the Standard and caused a scene downstairs. They wouldn’t leave and kept name-dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers. Jay Z got wind of it and snapped at Solange, saying ‘don’t use my name,'” a source said.
That’s when Solange said she wanted to leave the party which Jay Z agreed to but said he wouldn’t be going with them as he was going to attend Rihanna’s bash. This apparently angered Solange who appeared ‘drunk’ and she was said to questioned her big sister Beyonce why her husband needed to attend the bash.
Jay Z angry over Solange’s involvement in his business once again snapped at her. “You’re one to talk,” he shot back at Solange, a source said.
Solange flew into a rage after a Jay Z’s sharp reply, kicking and punching the rapper despite being held which was caught on surveillance camera and leaked on Monday.

However, a source disclosed that this is not the first time this has happened and that’s why Beyonce and Jay Z were so calm.
“Solange has flipped her lid like that before, that’s why Bey and Jay were so calm. They are used to this from Solange. It has definitely happened before,” the source said.
Meanwhile, other sources have revealed that the rift between Solange and Jay Z was because the rapper has been promising to help her boost her music career, but for some reason never kept to his words on it.
