Beyonce gave Met Gala 2019 a miss for THIS reason?
American singer Beyonce didn't grace the Met Gala event 2019. Here's the reason.
The Met Gala 2019 was a star-studded evening and it was an event to remember as many celebs turned heads with their quirky, wild, and glamorous outfits. From Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kendall Jenner to Gigi Hadid, everyone just lit up the show with their outfits. But American singer Beyonce gave it a miss. As per a report in RadarOnline.com, the Crazy in Love singer didn’t turn up at the event in order to “avoid celebrities beneath her” and talk of the 2014 scandal.
RadarOnline quoted a source saying, “Beyonce feels like she is so much above everyone there. The source added saying that the main reason she and Jay-Z skipped the party was because she “did not want to relive” the elevator scandal that happened in 2014 between her husband and younger sister Solange Knowles.
For the unversed, in 2014 Solange attacked Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z in an elevator after the Met Ball at The Standard hotel in New York City. Solange was seen attacking her brother-in-law.
After the incident, they jointly released a statement. The statement read as: “As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it.”
“Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”
The statement further stated, “The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false.”
