Singersroom.com reported sometime in July, 2013 that Solange was forced to cancel dates on her European tour citing “mental and physical health” reasons. At the time, Solange released a statement indicating that the stresses of everyday life were much too difficult for her:
“I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the Summer. I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was…but between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record…I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family. I am so so sooooo sorry if Ive disappointed…… and really hope to make it out to those special cities soon enough!”
Gossip tabloid TMZ obtained a CCTV video clip from an elevator showing Solange violently attacking Beyonce‘s husband Jay Z as Beyonce stood by meekly and watched.
Splash News published pics of the aftermath of the elevator incident. In the above pic, Jay Z is seen adjusting his clothing as he trailed behind a smiling Beyonce and a deranged looking Solange as they exited a Met Gala after party in NYC last week.
