3. Elevator Fights (Solange/Ray Rice):
Security footage played a big part in two of this year's scandals. Solange Knowles was caught attacking brother-in-law Jay Z
in an elevator the night of the Met Gala. The incident was reportedly sparked by a conversation that Solange had earlier in the night with designer Rachel Roy. According to People
, Roy, ex-wife to Jay Z's ex-business partner Damon Dash, told Solange about her "history" with Jay Z, which upset Solange. Beyonce reportedly broke up the argument between Solange and Roy, but couldn't keep Solange from taking a few shots at Jay Z later on. Things seem to be patched up with the family now. Just days later, they released a joint statement, saying, "We love each other and above all we are family." In Atlantic City, cameras were rolling on NFL running back Ray Rice when he punched his wife Janay
in the face on Feb. 15. Janay, his then-fiance, was knocked unconscious from the blow. Ray was suspended indefinitely for his actions but he successfully appealed the suspension after an arbitrator concluded that Ray came clean to the NFL about the incident before the video was leaked.
