Jay-Z Finally Addresses His Elevator Fight With Solange at the 2014 Met Gala

Three years later, Jay-Z is finally addressing the elevator fight heard around the world.

Of course, we’re referring to that now-infamous moment when the rapper was caught on camera duking it out with sister-in-law Solange Knowles after the 2014 Met Gala.

The 47-year-old spoke about the incident in an interview this week — though he didn’t exactly spill on what it was all about.

What the “99 Problems” hitmaker would say about the incident is that it’s not typical of their relationship.

“We had one disagreement ever,” Beyoncé’s hubby told the Rap Radar podcast.

He continued, “Before and after we've been cool. She's like my sister. I will protect her. That's my sister, not my sister-in-law. My sister. Period."

At the time — when footage was released of the “Cranes in the Sky” songstress hitting and kicking her brother-in-law —  the sisters and Jay released a joint statement.

They insisted they’d “moved forward as a united family” after the “unfortunate incident.” And judging by this interview, they’ve since mended fences.

In fact, from how he tells it, it wasn’t as bad as it seems.

“We've always had a great relationship," the Roc Nation founder explained.

“I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life. It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space. But it ain't nothing.”

He was then asked about the long-speculated belief that the fight — believed to be over his infidelity — inspired his 4:44 album, Beyoncé’s Lemonade, and Solange’s A Seat at the Table.

“I think we went into the elevator as great artists,” the father of three — 5-year-old Blue Ivy and newborn twins Rumi and Sir— stated. “That don’t surprise me.”

The mogul added, “I've always loved Solange's music. I think she was slept on until this last album.

“I thought the album before this one was amazing, too. Incredible artist.”

He also took a moment to point out his wife’s success prior to the game-changing 2016 release.

“I think Bey made an incredible album before, a hundred of them. She literally had a hundred hits,” he gushed.

“It isn't like she didn't have hits before this last album. It sounds good. It's a good thing to say."

Fair enough! Guess we’re all going to have to stick to our own theories on why they fought that night.
