JAY-Z Breaks Silence About Elevator Incident With Solange Knowles: 'She's Like My Sister'
By Jackie Willis
JAY-Z and Solange Knowles have put the past behind them.
The 47-year-old rapper and Beyonce's younger sister made headlines in 2014 when surveillance footage from a hotel elevator was leaked, which showed Solange lunging at her brother-in-law just moments after they attended the Met Gala in New York City.
"We had one disagreement ever -- before and after we’ve been cool," JAY-Z told Rap Radar hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller of the infamous footage. "She’s like my sister. I will protect her. That’s my sister, not my sister-in-law. My sister. Period."
The elevator incident recently became a topic of discussion again on social media after the release of JAY-Z's album, 4:44. While at the Standard Hotel, where the altercation took place, one fan noted on Twitter: "THE ADDRESS IS 444. I AM SHOOK."
"444 W 13th Street," the Twitter user added. "4:44 IS ALSO HIS 13th STUDIO ALBUM."
