A video surfaced recently, that allegedly shows Beyonce’s sister, Solange, attacking Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, in an elevator. They were all in the elevator, leaving a Met Ball after party together. This family matter happened behind closed elevator doors, and if this had happened to any other person, they would have been allowed to deal with this family matter privately.
Instead, this video has become a media sensation, and has everyone wondering what caused the outburst. What happened between Jay-Z and Solange to cause her to attack him? We may never know the answer to that, but there is plenty of speculation and accusations being bantered about by others, not involved in the altercation.
What we do know, is that Solange’s Instagram account has been scrubbed clean of any pictures of her big sister, or any sisterly love between the two. A day after Solange’s account was cleared of pictures with her sister, Beyonce has made a gesture of sisterly love by filling her Instagram account with pictures of Solange and herself. Trying to smooth things over, and show her love for her sister, perhaps? Beyonce has been criticized for not intervening in the attack on the elevator. Posting the pictures is perhaps her way of extending the olive branch to her sister. None of the parties involved with, or that saw the altercation has commented publicly on the attack.
and Jay-Z are very private about their lives, so this video gives others a window into their personal lives that they do not know much about. This kind of altercation caught on video simply fuels the media machine, and leaves people wondering what could have possibly happened to cause it. When public people are very private with their lives, any sort of story that gives a glimpse into their private lives, gets quite a bit of attention because people want to know more about it and them.
Only time will tell if we will find out the cause of this altercation. Maybe we will get some more pictures from Beyonce trying to reach out to her sister. Maybe they will just keep quiet about it, and hope that this bump in the road will go away and be forgotten. Let’s hope these two sisters can work out whatever their problems are, and get back to some of that sisterly love from Beyonce’s Instagram pictures.
