An Idea of How Much Beyonce's Privacy Means to Her
Beyonce's Privacy Exposed
Beyoncé is one of the A-list celebrities who strives hard to maintain a sense of privacy even though her life is on a stage for the world to view. When prompted to speak about her private life, both she and her husband give very vague responses, or decline to answer certain questions. In a life where you give every part of you to the world, it’s understandable that there’s a small part that she would like to keep for herself. However, a recent video released by TMZ has shockingly revealed a part of Beyoncé’s personal life that I’m certain she did not want the world to be aware of. This video shows footage (without audio) of Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Solange entering the elevator to leave the Met Gala event. Inside the elevator, we see a very irate Solange attacking Jay-Z while the bodyguards try to keep her away from him. Beyoncé stands off to the side, doing nothing, and often looking down at the floor.
This leaves the world with one burning question: What in the world did Jay-Z do to piss Solange off like that?
Beyonce & Solange
What in the world did Jay-Z do to piss Solange off like that?
The truth to this question is that we will probably never know what really triggered Solange’s anger. However, we can make speculations as to what happened based on factual evidence.
Evidence 1: As the video clearly shows, Solange was already pissed before they even walked onto the elevator because before the doors could barely close, she lit into him.
Evidence 2: This wasn’t a little bit of anger. Solange’s anger was off the scale. Not only did she punch at him with her fists and try to kick him, but she also spat at him and tried to get back at him numerous times while the bodyguards held her at bay.
Evidence 3: Not once did Beyoncé look surprised by the outburst, neither did she try to come between them until the very end of the footage when they were about to step off the elevator.
Evidence 4: Solange was saying something to Jay-Z, truly giving him a piece of her mind and Beyoncé didn’t seem to be interrupting Solange’s verbal onslaught.
Evidence 5: When Solange leaves the hotel, she does not look intoxicated, and she is not struggling to walk upright.
Evidence 6: When they were about to enter their limo, the bodyguard would not let Jay-Z inside the limo. Solange enters the limo first and just before Beyoncé dips her head into the limo, she gives a little smile.
Wendy Willaim's Interview Shows Even More Evidence!
What Does this Evidence Means?
Like Wendy Williams points out in her interview, this exchange between Solange and Jay-Z is not a first-time occurrence. If this was a first-time occurrence, Beyoncé would have been doing something—holding up her hands at her sister, trying to talk to her, calm her, something—to diffuse the situation. Solange’s attack on Jay-Z almost seems like she’s trying to take up for/protect her sister’s best interest. Jay-Z did something. Whatever it is that he did, it pissed Solange off to the point that she was no longer able to control her anger.
Is Jay-Z Disrespecting Beyoncé?
Beyoncé keeps her personal life private so we do not really know what’s going on in her marriage, but we can make some speculations. Wendy suggests that at the Met Gala, Jay-Z may have intentionally brushed against the buttocks of one of his old flames while Beyoncé was standing right there, and Solange saw the indiscretion. She goes on to suggest that this isn’t the first time that Jay-Z disrespected Beyoncé in this type of manner and Solange has basically had enough of his bull. Thus, she sets it off in the elevator, taking up for her big sister and letting Jay-Z know that she’s not going to allow him to hurt her.
Mayhem in the Marriage?
Could it be true that not all is well on the marital front for Beyoncé and Jay-Z? Well, we don’t know the facts, but evidence suggests that there may be some trouble in paradise.
Evidence 1: Beyoncé has been spotted not wearing her wedding ring.
Evidence 2: Beyoncé was secretly eyeing Jay-Z’s phone while he was texting at a game.
Evidence 3: Remember, Beyoncé gave a brilliant smile just before dipping her head into the limo—what is there to smile about after your younger sister just open a can of whoopit on your husband just seconds before the limo ride?
Family Releases a Statement
According to CBS, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Solange released a public statement concerning what transpired in the elevator. Beyonce states, “They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family,” (CBS, 2014). However, the statement gives no insight into what triggered the attack in the elevator.

The Knowles sisters and Jay Z say apologies have been made and they're moving on following the incident
What Do YOU Think?
Why do you think Solange attacked Jay-Z?
Speculation 1: Jay-Z did something very inappropriate that disrespected Beyoncé, and it’s very likely that this isn’t the first time that he’s stepped out of line.
Speculation 2: Solange’s love for her sister and outrage at her brother-in-law’s lack of respect for Beyoncé motivated Solange to attack him in the elevator to let him know how she really feels about his behavior.
This family will continue to maintain their sense of privacy. I believe Solange is burning to let the world know what’s really going on with Jay-Z, but she loves her sister so dearly that she respects Beyoncé’s desire to keep her marriage private. But I believe that the leaking of this video is just the beginning, because there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, nothing concealed that will not be brought out in the open (Luke 12:2).
