Jay-Z has finally opened up to the public about the infamous 2014 elevator incident at the Met Gala when Beyonce's sister, Solange, physically attacked him. Footage of the elevator was leaked to the public, leading to widespread speculation about the reason for the spat. A popular suspicion is that Solange was furious with Jay-Z over rumors he cheated on Beyonce with designer Rachel Roy. Roy is one of several women suspected of being "Becky with the good hair," the dusty side chick addressed in Beyonce's album Lemonade.
