Many are now speculating that there may be marital problems in the Carter household.



It has turned out to be the biggest subject trending on twitter #WhatDidJayZSay. The Solange Knowles and brother-in-law Jay Z’s altercation in an elevator which was captured on CCTV and leaked to TMZ has seen the hotel employee responsible for the leaked video fired from post.

In a statement made by The Standard hotel spokesperson Brian Phillips, he stated: "The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ."

"The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies."

Once the news of #ElevatorGate went public, the reputable establishment was quick to distance themselves from the security breach, saying that they were "shocked and disappointed”.

The yet to be identified employee is allegedly $250,000 richer, however, with talks of legal proceedings which The Standard strongly alluded to by stating that they would be providing all of its information to the authorities, we have not heard the last about this incident.

Many are still speculating on what caused the #ElevatorGate altercation, and news just in and not yet confirmed by any of the parties involved or their representatives is that Solange was being the protective little sister as Jay Z was getting a little too comfortable/accommodating of  Californian designer Rachel Roy whom was also present at the party.

According to a US Weekly source, this state of affair had left Beyonce upset and Solange incensed. Being the more fiery of the two sisters, Solange had allegedly warned Rachel at the party not to get too close and apparently told her 'anyone who gets close to Jay has to deal with her as a sister.'  Adding more fuel to make this version of events more credible, sources at the Met after party had claimed that Jay Z and Beyonce had intervened in a brewing storm between Solange and Rachel, thus made the decision to leave the party early.

However, things came to a dramatic end in the lift when Solange purportedly now angry with Jay Z for letting Rachel get too close to the close knit family was infuriated further when he announced that he would continue partying alone at Rihanna’s after party where Rachel Roy also had plans to attend.

With the lasering off of the IV on her wedding ring finger and surprising lack of intervention in #ElevatorGate, many are now questioning if there is marital trouble in the Carter/Knowles household? Would Jay and BEY be doing a conscious uncoupling a la Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow? Let wait and see
