Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange may have issued an official statement asking the public and the media to move on from the elevator attack that went down at the Met Gala, but that won’t stop the speculation on why it occurred unfortunately.

As we recently reported, it’s been said by multiple sources that the cause of the drama was Jay Z’s inappropriate friendship with fashion designer Rachel Roy, and sources even claimed that Solange even yelled at her just hours before she went off on Jay Z.

But now more details are coming out and it appears that Beyonce actually confronted Rachel before things went left in the elevator.

E! News reports:

“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.”




As for Rachel, she hasn’t done much to dispute the gossip. Instead, she tweeted Jay Z lyrics on her Twitter account.


  1. Well I’m glad people are spilling the tea on Rachel so no one will buy her “I’m so classy” front. She’s the typical THOT and everyone needs to know that.

  2. Wendell Williams did say on her show that Rachel Roy was one of the so-called “interns” at Roca Wear back in the day, and that she was one of many who were passed around between Jay and Damon. I really thought that was Wendell being her usual messy, Bey-hating self. But she might actually be right for a change. Who knew?

  3. Well Jay Z should have been the one to check Rachel, not Beyonce. He’s a marred man. If anyone needed to put Rachel in her place, it should have been him. This whole situation is just terrible.

  4. You can tell by the way Bey was smirking and looking at Solange when they got off the elevator that she agreed with what she did. She was never mad at Solange. Just Jay Z. She didn’t even want him to go to Kelly’s wedding with her. That’s how I knew what time it was.

  5. Again, this sounds about right. I bet the BeyHive is dragging the hell out of Rachel right now. LOL.

  6. Rachel really has some nerve. Not only did she flirt with him in front of Bey and Solange, but she is still being messy about it on Twitter. Solange roundhouse kicked the wrong person that day. She should have given Rachel that footwork.

  7. I still stand by what I said Solange should not have put her hands on Jay. This is a marital dispute between Jay and Bey not Jay, Bey, and Solange. If Jay was being flirtatious with Rachel it should have been addressed by Bey at home or by Bey solely. I understand taking up for family and her sister but that’s the problem in relationships today people don’t know their place. This situation needs to be handled between a husband and a wife.

  8. And she still has the audacity to go on twitter and throw indirect shade with one of his songs and pretend she didn’t even know such song existed from Hov.. She is an underground Hoe… Her empire of fashion came crushing as soon as she became Kim K’s BFF.. Now it’s about to go six feet under..

  9. I feel so bad for Bey but this is just a part of life. There will always be scandalous women who don’t care about your marriage. It’s up to Jay Z to be the one to shut them down but he’s obviously engaging these tramps unfortunately.

    1. Exactly, and if he’s not shutting down her advances as a married man then Bey had a right to get in her face and his too.

  10. This Rachel person sounds like a very trifling individual. From the tweet to having the audacity to flirt with him in front of everyone, she doesn’t sound like a very good person. She’s going to get her karma though.

    1. @anonymous, yes u r so right, I can’t stand biatchie s like that. I put kenya in that same category, flirt with your guy in front of u then pretend they have respect for u, bytch please. Theres some evil folk out here and unfortunately its always another broad who smile in your face wishing they had your place.

  11. The industry life is tough. I can only imagine what else Jay Z has done despite being a married man. Smh.

  12. I wish I was Bey’s sister I would have done the same thing. sometime salt needs salt. J was feeling his self and he better be careful Beyoncé got a song that says TO THE LEFT TO THE LEFT. She can leave him a you can best believe she can get another in a minute.

  13. Jay is lucky she got a beautiful woman that loves him for him… The rest of them hoes want him for money little does he know. Beyoncé can have any man she wants pretty much.. I honestly don’t see this marriage lasting and if it does it’s almost be like a business arrangement… Yes Jay makes money but Beyoncé is now the driving force when it comes to money.. I honestly think that there is a lot of Beyoncé personality that has been influenced by Jay Z… Bey needs to just finally realize that this man will never be satisfied with just one woman.. It’s in his blood. She needs to get rid of him.

  14. I’m not trying to be messy but in a way, I think ElevatorGate wasn’t so bad after all. It actually makes Bey look more normal. We all have crazy family drama and to see her in that light makes me like her a little more. She’s human and it’s nice to see that side of her for a change. And I’m sure it’s not as scandalous as the media is making it. Mr. and Mrs. Carter will be fine.
