*It looks like Rachel Roy is becoming the frontrunner in reports of what exactly caused Beyonce’s sister Solange to attack Jay Z in the elevator after the Met Ball, while Bey just stood and watched.
First, E! News reports that the May 5 incident on the night of the 2014 Met Gala went down because Beyoncé’s man got a little too close with Roy, who’s the ex-wife of his business partner Damon Dash.
“At the gala, Rachel was being flirtatious with Jay,” a source exclusively tells E! News. “Once everyone was at the Boom Boom Room for the after-party, her flirtations were elevated.”
“Beyoncé approached Rachel to let her know the behavior was disrespectful and she wanted her out of their lives for good,” the source goes on. “Solange came over to have her sister’s back, and things got heated with her and Rachel. Jay said some disrespectful things to Beyoncé and Solange as the confrontation was going down. That’s why all hell broke loose in the elevator and why Beyoncé just stood back and let Solange hit Jay.”
Roy’s camp didn’t immediately respond to E! News’ request for comment, but today, she decided to send the below tweet plugging her new summer clothing line – throwing in Hov’s “Beach is Better” interlude off of his Magna Carta Holy Grail album
