We may never be able to definitively analyze 2014’s equivalent of the Zapruder film –the video of Beyonce’s sister beating the crap out of Jay Z in an elevator — in our lifetime. But we can certainly try.

The New York Daily News claims to know the reason why Solange Knowles went all Floyd Mayweather on her brother-in-law and it’s allegedly because he wanted to go party with Rihanna — without Beyonce.

According to the Daily News, Beyonce, Solange and Jay Z were all at a Met Gala after party last Monday night at the Boom Boom Room at the Standard Hotel.

Solange reportedly got super pissed when Jay Z said he would be leaving for Rihanna’s after party without asking his wife and that’s when things started to get really bad.

Earlier in the night, things were already tense between Jay Z and Solange because she was reportedly telling her non-famous friends to use Jay’s name to get into the private party.

“Two of her friends, who were not dressed for the Met Ball, showed up at The Standard and caused a scene downstairs,” a source told the Daily News. “They wouldn’t leave and kept name dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers. Management went to Julius [Beyonce’s bodyguard] and said there’s a problem.”

Jay Z told his sister-in-law not to name drop him, and he then said he was leaving to go to Rihanna’s party and wouldn’t need enough security for Beyonce.

A “drunk and irritated” Solange got mad at Jay Z saying, “‘Why can’t you go home?’ and to Beyonce ‘Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?'”

Jay Z apparently threw a “You’re one to talk” at Solange and that’s when she started physically assaulting him while wearing a couture ball gown.

Ever since the fight, Solange has deleted every image of Beyonce from her Instagram account and B has been posting inspiring Biblical passages to hers.

By many accounts, Solange has quite the temper, with a friend telling Us Weekly that Bey and Jay are “used to” Solange’s freak outs. She also apparently started a fight with fashion designer Rachel Roy before

Either Solange is kind of wacky, or the Illuminati is going to great lengths to squash this story.
