Mathew Knowles Opens Up About Solange and JAY-Z's Famous Elevator Fight
Solange Knowles and JAY-Z’s famous elevator fight after the 2014 Met Gala happened almost four years ago, but it’s still a topic of conversation.
Mathew Knowles sat down with Wendy Williams on her daytime show on Thursday, when their conversation turned to his daughter’s fight with Beyonce’s husband.
“I have to tell you, I laughed so hard. If you know Solange, that’s Solange,” Mathew told Wendy. “You just never know what you’re gonna get.”
“A firecracker,” Wendy added, with Mathew laughing and replying, “I don’t know where she gets that from.”
“Then Beyonce would be in the corner quiet,” he continued. “Just kind of like, ‘When y’all finish let me know. So I just laugh.”
The surveillance footage from the elevator showed Solange lunging at her brother-in-law after leaving the New York event. Last year, JAY-Z broke his silence about the incident, revealing that they had put the past behind them.
“We had one disagreement ever — before and after we’ve been cool,” JAY-Z told Rap Radar in August 2017. “She’s like my sister. I will protect her. That’s my sister, not my sister-in-law. My sister. Period.”
“I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life,” he continued. “It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space — but it ain’t nothing.”
Meanwhile, Beyonce and JAY-Z are gearing up to go on tour together again. The two have been spotted in Jamaica these past weeks shooting what looks like a music video or promotional spots for their concerts.
