Beyoncé's Calm Demeanor During Solange's Attack On Jay Z Explained! Was It A Case Of Practice Makes Perfect?

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsBeyonceJAY-ZSolangeViolence

beyonce solange outbursts normal happen all the time

Ahhhh, finally we might have some answers!

When the video came out of Solange beating on Jay Z the night of the Met Gala, everyone was wondering why Beyoncé was so damn calm standing in the corner.

Not to mention, Jay Z was pretty damn chill himself despite being kicked and slapped around in an elevator!

Now an insider is commenting on why they might've handled this sitch so smoothly…because it apparently isn't the first time:

"This is not the first time this has happened. That’s why Bey and Jay were so calm. They are used to this from Solange. It has definitely happened before. It is a testament to Beyonce’s calm nature how she kept back and played the peacekeeper here. She is so calm and always the peacekeeper."

Well they were so crazy calm it must happen ALL the time if that's the case!

But if this isn't the first time, then why hasn't someone tried to get Solange help?

Or why are they still hanging out with her in situations where it might happen?

We know they're sisters, but would YOU hang with your sister if she randomly beat your family up??

    Until you are in a situation like this you can't make that judgement. She/they may be working on a big issue. Some things don't change overnight and they should live their lives doing the best they can. Who knows what or why this happened, I just wish their family the best on what looks like a tough challenge.

    Don't you get it… SHE'S PREGNANT, that's why she chose to keep calm and not intervene…

    Looked like a clear case of COKE RAGE to me. It's not the first time Bey has dealt with it and she knew that getting involved wouldn't help and would just mess up her clothes.

  4. loriso says – reply to this


    Omg, just because someone is a family member does not mean you have to have them in your life. They need to cut her out! That is so incredibly childish and ridiculous and you know she mooches off their fame and fortune. Cut her out!

    This story is really sad - it seems to me that alcoholism could be a factor.

  6. annainparis says – reply to this


    So it's not the first time they are fighting like a couple, because if you ask me this really looks like a passionate fight! I bet Z was in an affair with Solange and must have said something diminishing (in light of his overrall success with woncé) and she lost it. Wonce couldn't have intervened, she had to keep her poise (she is on the cover of time magazine for christ's sake), it would have looked awful. Besides, she let them fought by themselves (keep on hating each other, it's all in her honor)!

    False news as usual.

    Uh huh…suuuurrreeeeee

    Boy, poor Solange is really getting heat for this. This video is just a tiny snippet in their lives - for all we know this is not unusual for Solange OR the rest of the family. Maybe this family is like the Jacksons - pushing their kids so hard into show biz. It wouldn't be a stretch to imagine that violence is part of their normal family life - not just something Solange does.

  10. Wwhoa says – reply to this


    Why and how can Bey let her sister be trashed like this? HOW can she just stand by and let it happen? Oh yeah… She's good at that.

    And what insider does that? It makes the situation worse. Don't insiders leak information to fix situations for their clients and better their clients? Or bring attention? This is not ok.

  11. Shut up and drive says – reply to this


    I don't buy it. If she does this that often, why even go anywhere with her? If my sister attacked my husband for now reason, shit, he'd never hang with her, much less go to a formal event with her.

  12. fklagjlskdh says – reply to this


    Of course an "insider" is turning the story around to make sure Beyonce looks good at all times. Oh that beyonce, always a peacekeeper. yeahhhhh oookkaayyy. I'm sure the illuminati will hunt me down for this but Beyonce is the dumbest person on earth.

  13. Jenny says – reply to this


    This story makes no sense. She has to have a reason why she went crazy on jayZ. He did something !

  14. Five-Oh says – reply to this


    Whatever Jay-Z did or didn't say to her, does not make it ok for her to go "ham" on him like he was a stranger on the street. That's assault. If you study human behavior, their reactions do suggest that they might be use to this sort of behavior. Without audio, the world will never know why Solange lost it, as they most assuredly will not reveal what was said. When I was growing up, adults would always tell me to believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear. Maybe Jay-Z smacked her in the hallway. You never know.

    The Beygency is going to come for you all, lol!!

  16. Sendee says – reply to this


    NOOOOOOO! This is pure BS! There is no way I would let my sibling whoop my spouse the way Solange did Jay-Z. No, they need to try again. He was obviously upset with Beyoncé at the end and Solange must be totally mental to continuously do that, and needless to say they must be mental to allow her to do this frequently. I'm not buying this tale!!! Let's try this again. If they are having issues, then ok they are no better than any other human being regardless of how some of you choose to believe otherwise. Life is not perfect, but don't try to feed us rationally thinking adults with this EPIC tale!

    omg please this is such bullshit beyonce is such a robot and jay z definitely beats her.

    Re: Heather – I doubt Solange is a moocher. She has a career in her own right. I think people shouldn't be so quick to throw her under the bus when the facts aren't even public.

  20. lady jay says – reply to this


    It can't b the 1st..n if it was there shouldn't have been a 2nd..shit happens. .I want to hear AUDIO. .LOL LUVPEREZHILTON♥♥

  21. jj says – reply to this


    When I watched that video I thought the same thing that it looked like that this has happened before. I come from crazy family members and sometimes you just have to stand back and let it run it's course.

  22. Lina says – reply to this


    My thing is, what IF solange was just sticking up for beyonce? Rumors are that Jay hit beyonce, so Solange was sticking up for her sister. Everybody is saying "beyonce should have stuck up for her man, blah blah blah". I think if solange was in the WRONG, beyonce would have stuck up for Jay, but obviously he did something to warrant the attack, so beyonce stood back and watched. Besides, BLOOD is thicker than WATER. And sisters won't go out acting a fool unless it is needed. Period.

  23. lina says – reply to this


    Re: loriso – mooches off of their fame?! She's a singer herself, and makes her own money! She doesn't need them!

  24. Sara jo says – reply to this


    Clearly Solange has mental health and/or drugs problems. I agree this isn't new, just newly public. I'm not doc but I know bipolar quite well. It hhas devastated my family for generations. Now I live with it. It took many years to get a right diagnosis and much trial and error to finally accepts that I had to be responsible for my hhealth. Mood swings can ke a person turn from delightful to scary in a very short time. Sometimes these are subtle sometimes they happen without warning. The person with bipolar can't judge their behavior well. When they are manic and acting crazy, they are energized and feel like they can conquer the world. There is a high likelihood of suicide and dangerous behavior on both ends of the spectrum. Even when medicated or if not complying things can become unstable. It's very difficult for everyone including family members. There remains a huge stigma around all mental illness. Im guessing this is a factor. Bipolar disorder is chronic and progressive. I wonder if Bey and Jay are preserving in an attempts to help. Yes the behavior is bizarre and we are all riveted by celeb scandal. Making a joke out of what we don't understand is human nature. I hope they all figure this out and pursue help. They can certainly afford it. Even the rich and powerful are not immune from pain and suffering.

  25. Lina says – reply to this


    Re: Sendee – you would never let your sister do this to your spouse? what if your spouse beat the shit out of you. Then what? I know it is just hearsay that jay z is hitting beyonce, but if that were the case then it would give solange perfect reason to try and hit him.I will always 100 percent have my sisters back- she is the best friend that God has blessed me with. And if her spouse hit her, I'd probably have the same reaction as solange, and my sister would as well.

  26. shawana says – reply to this


    Hello all. I dont know how u guys feel about this but it should've been nipped in the bud the first time. It was inappropiate the first time and it is this time. No excuses. I believe that if this iRe: VB – the first time, I feel that Bey and Jay should have warned her about her behavior the first time. Now for this time Bey should have put her on her ASS. I will not stand by and allow my sister,cousin,aunt,uncle or anyone else abuse my husband.

    NONE OF Y'ALL KNOW THESE PEOPLE. Shut your dumb mouths and quit talking shit or making judgments based on assumptions. YOU PEOPLE are the epitome of stupidity.

  28. Redstar says – reply to this


    Re: Lina – I agree with bipolar is a awful disease 2 of my family members have it as long as they take their medication they are fine. One is a psychologist and is able to understand the problems that another bipolar person has what is better than one who has it to understand. That is the first thing I thought because I have seen it all to much. I feel sorry for Solange she needs help not critizm.

  29. lacey says – reply to this


    Peace maker? She didn't do anything but stand there like a robot. She didn't even try to calm her sister down she just stood there.

    Re: Charincal – Career ????? Lol! Can You Even List One Hit Song That Solange Has Had ????? I Honestly Can Not Think Of Anything Successful About Solange's Showbiz Career (Or Lack Thereof). She May Make Some Fine Music, But For Some Reason, It Never Seems To Chart Or Sell Much. Most Of My Friends Didn't Even Know That Beyonce Had A Sister Until That Hotel Brawl Made The News. Some Of Them Are Big Beyonce Fans, Too. They Were Like "Who The Heck Is That *Salon* Chick Up On Jay Like A Mad Woman In An Elevator? They Claim She Is Kin To Beyonce?" They Said That Because They Had Not Heard Solange's Name Before They Heard Those News Reports. They Thought That The Reporters Were Saying "Salon", Not "Solange". Lol! That Is Sad!

  33. theworldispein says – reply to this


    Spoiled and crazy beyond repair….

    ”Promises where made about Solange career”…..maybe she should just stop acting entitled and try to make something out of her life on her own instead of trying to copy her older sister all the time …and failing at it may i add.

    She seems to have an eye and talent for fashion. Ditch the singing and start focusing on that. Be a star because you accomplished something .

  34. Ronesha says – reply to this


    I believe that story. It would make perfect sense to me. Jay and Beyonce did not even seem slightly shocked about Solange's furious fit. Jay even seemed prepared to go into "take it like a man mode" as soon as it starting happening. I already thought that similar unfortunate events have probably occurred before. They seem used to it at this point. Despite all the success and money that they have, I truly feel sorry for them. I hope that they can work things out smoothly and asap. Beyonce seems like a good person. She works hard. You can tell that she sincerely loves her husband just by how she interacts with him, looks at him, and talks about him. I really respect her dedication to her family and her career. She deserves happiness and peace in her life.

    Solange is Crazy, she's still kind of young so i suppose she hasn't grown up yet, she will come to realize one day that she is an adult not a child

    I do not believe any of this.. There is something fishy going on, but its none of our business so we will never find out. A source that is genuinely close to the family as Perez claims, would most probably never speak to the media. We all know how the private the family is so what close person would speak out. If their spokes person or the individuals themselves haven't said anything, its not true. This fight happened in the privacy of an elevator, as good as home, so its sad how the security could not respect that. They should sue the hotel. We all have our family drama so lets not be so quick to judge.

  41. Ella says – reply to this


    It OBVIOUS Jay-Z cheated, they all found out, Solange is pissed defending her sisters honour and beyonce is keeping composure. DUH! Solange is still mad that Bey's refusing to leave him hence why she deleted pics with her this morning on instagram

  42. Emily says – reply to this


    "We know they're sisters, but would YOU hang with your sister if she randomly beat your family up??"
    One thing I really hate about Perez is that he's constantly giving his opinion, that's not what a journalist is supposed to do, we just want the information, we don't care about your opinion or advice Perez. Such bad journalism.

  43. DLD says – reply to this


    Most of y'all are fools, how y'all can't think and automatically assume Solange is crazy because she attack Jay Z. because that is the only part you all see. Y'all don't know the situation and it may not be what y'all think from that 3 min tape. It may occur from a previous situation and she just react in the elevator where she thought none who see. Jay Z did something to beyonce in my view and beyonce just allowed Solange to defend her. If Solange was in the wrong beyonce would of leave Solange and go in the car with her husband. However, she didn't she went in the car with her sister who in my view just beat Jay Z for his wrong doings. I feel as thou Jay Z did something wrong to either Beyonce or Solange and Solange was mostly defending her sister or herself!!!!

  44. kdfjdf says – reply to this


    Re: lacey – Solange admitted she is diagnosed with ADHD, not BIPOLAR!!! It's amazing how ignorant people are just reading blogs and saying she is crazy. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder will not make you violent. Solange did not jump on Jay in the middle of the gala. She waited until they were in an elevator behind closed doors. She did not jump on him on the way to the car in view of the public. She is not crazy and she was not drunk. She was upset but she controlled herself while in public. I know you don't want to hear it but something is wrong is the Carter's household, and believe me….it has nothing to do with Solange being crazy!

  45. Jordan says – reply to this


    Re: Emily – You are wrong about that. I CARE ABOUT PEREZ'S OPINIONS AND ADVICE. I also care about what everyone has to say, too. That is why I read these articles and their comments.

    Isn't Solange BiPolar? And if she doesn't take her meds i don't think its far fetched for her to have fits of rage like that. Maybe / Maybe not

  48. Cynthia says – reply to this


    Maybe you should be asking WHY she tried to beat up jay in the first place.. She could've been defending her sister in one way or another. We cannot judge her actions when we don't even know why she acted the way she did.

    I don't like how they always make solange the bad sister , jayz and beyonce is powerful couple and if they say or do anything everybody point fingers at people around them but at them. Jay-z look like he has a smart ass mouth or sarcastic and we all no beyonce is a undercover bitch by her facial expression. We would never know what happen if we actually here from all three. i don't think its drugs or drinking , it could be jealousy or something within the family.

  53. Mags says – reply to this


    Has anyone considered that Beyonce was verbally trying to calm her sister down? There is no audio, you cannot see whether she is speaking or not. Jay Z is quite big enough to stop Solange hitting him, coupled with the body guard holding her back why would she intervene?
    This is a nasty situation that "gossip mongering" and she should've done this, he should've done that, really doesnt help.

    She has a Bi Polar Disorder.

  55. Symstunner says – reply to this


    People that's a whole heap of rubbish. I can so believe that from the reaction or lack of reaction from both Beyoncé and jay Z that solange had more then enough reason for doing what she done. NO BODY and mean NO BODY is gonna sit there and watch their sister and husband FIGHT!!!! Who does that??? Unless there was a good enough reason to why. Beyoncé doesn't even put an arm out to say stop, they both knew dam well why it happened

    Um no sister or not there is no call for that at all period especially to have happened so many times. Ur not 2 anymore temper tantrums are not ok! I may try to get her help but until she gets help or learns how to control herself I would stay away. You may be family but so is my husband. My sister is expected to respect my husband just like my man is expected to respect the family.

    Re: Lina – I'm the youngest of five girls that are EXTREMELY close… I have a sister that we ALL know 'when she drinks… get ready!' All of our spouses, close friends, etc. understand this. Its the norm and NOBODY and I mean NOBODY better lay a hand on her! Love 'em all TO DEATH but it is what it is…

  63. Anisa says – reply to this


    Re: Lina – I completely agree. Even if Solange does have some kind of anger management problem, I know she loves her sister and was only assaulting Jay because HE did something wrong. Don't think Jay's perfect people. You never know. My initial theories was that he either cheated on beyonce or is beating her. And because B is so professional she didn't want to cause a scene about it in a public environment. So her sister did that for her. Idk.

  64. Angela says – reply to this


    Re: Jordan – I agree, people take a 3 minute video and they have it all figured out…but they don't. I am a very private person and for me family matters are handled in private not in the public. Solange thought that was what she was doing when she handled Jay Z in the elevator in private with just the bodyguard present. She composed herself when she walked out for the cameras and so did everyone else. I can't blame Solange completely because I have been so angry at my sisters boyfriend for doing or saying something to her where I wanted to react because she simply wouldn't say a word to him because she went home with him. Solange said she would never sell herself out to be a mega star like her sister because it would mean changing who she was so I hate when people compare them. She doesn't put up a front like everything is perfect she's human.

    I would cut my sister out of my life so fast if she punched and kicked my husband. And honestly I'd probably beat her as* too.

  68. Brandon says – reply to this


    I definitely not denying that Solange has done this before but I think another possibility for their calm behavior is probably that they knew there was a camera and that the footage would most likely be seen. I mean most hotels do have cameras in the elevators.
