There’s been a lot of speculation regarding why Solange Knowles decided to physically assault Jay Z in the elevator inside The Standard at a Met Gala after party last week.
And a new report claims the reason behind the attack has to do with Rihanna!
According to sources, the 44-year-old rapper wanted to attend his protégée’s Met Gala party solo.

But the fight that led to the elevator incident began just 15 minutes earlier when a couple of Solange’s pals allegedly tried to pass as Jay’s friends to get into The Standard party.
“Two of her friends, who were not dressed up for the Met Ball, showed up at The Standard and caused a scene downstairs,” a source said.
“They wouldn’t leave and kept name dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers. Management went to Julius (Beyoncé’s bodyguard) and said there’s a problem.”
When Jay found out about the situation, he wasn’t happy and told Solange, “don’t use my name.”

The 27-year-old became upset and wanted to leave the party — which they did.
As they were exiting, the musician told Bey and Solange he had plans to go to Up & Down, a night club in the West Village, where Ri was holding her post-Met Gala bash, a second source claims.
Solange didn’t like that one bit and called him out on it.
“She seemed drunk and irritated,” the second source tells the New York Daily News. “She said, ‘Why can’t you go home?’ and to Beyoncé, ‘Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?’”

Jay’s alleged response? “You’re the one to talk” — and that set Solange off, hence the elevator attack.
Rumors have been circulating for years that Ri’s had more than just a working relationship with her mentor.
