It’s the question the whole world is asking: What did Jay Z say to his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles, to send her flying into a rage? Was she drunk as a skunk, or was she simply defending her sister Beyoncé’s honour? Of course, Twitter users have their own theories.
The silent surveillance video footage from an elevator, showing Solange Knowles physically attacking her brother-in-law, Jay Z, while her older sister, Beyoncé, watched on, has gone viral. Twitter users across the world are speculating about what Jay Z said to provoke the attack on the night of the Met Gala.
Suggestions about what Jay Z actually said range from insulting Solange’s singing career to asking who she was. However, we suspect the actual truth may not be as hilarious as the theories on Twitter.
Jay Z wouldn’t let her sing backup vocals:
Solange :Can I Sing Backup At The Tour
Jay Z :You Got To Learn How To Sing First.
