New footage shows Quavo and Saweetie fighting in an elevator, and fans are linking it to a similar elevator fight between Solange and Jay-Z in 2014.
Following their recent breakup, surveillance footage has been shared by TMZ that shows Saweetie and Quavo having a physical fight inside an elevator.
Fans are saying it reminds them of a famous fight that Beyoncé’s sister Solange Knowles and Jay-Z had inside an elevator seven years ago.
So why did Solange fight Jay-Z? Let’s look back at the drama.
Solange fought Jay-Z in an elevator
Back in May 2014, Beyoncé’s sister Solange Knowles started a fight with her brother-in-law Jay-Z in an elevator when they were leaving a Met Gala afterparty.
A video originally posted by TMZ showed Solange punching and kicking the rapper whilst Beyoncé simply stood their without reacting.
Then, she briefly stepped in to try and break them apart before Solange was restrained by a bodyguard.
The three then left the party and Beyoncé got into a car with her sister, whilst Jay-Z was directed into another car.
Why did Solange fight Jay-Z?
Unfortunately, an official reason for the famous Solange and Jay-Z fight was never given.
However, it certainly can’t have been anything too serious because the three of them were seen hanging out at Coachella just weeks later.
Some people think Solange had just had one too many drinks, whilst others think Jay-Z said something inappropriate to trigger her.
One theory says that Solange used Jay-Z’s name to get some of her friends into the afterparty which angered him. So, he decided to leave and go to Rihanna’s afterparty without Beyoncé, which set Solange off.
Probably the most popular fan theory says that Solange was angry because Jay-Z was flirting with Rachel Roy at the Met Gala afterparty. However, despite rumours, it’s never actually been confirmed whether they had any sort of relationship.
Years later, Beyoncé mentioned Jay-Z and Rachel’s alleged relationship on her album Lemonade with the lyrics “he better call Becky with the good hair”. Rachel then responded by writing on Instagram: “Good hair don’t care.”
We’ll never truly know why Solange fought Jay-Z in the elevator, but Jay-Z once said in a podcast that it was a “one time thing” and said that he saw her as a “sister” not a “sister-in-law”, and they simply had a sibling fight.
Fans link the fight to Saweetie and Quavo
Seven years after the famous Solange and Jay-Z fight, a video has emerged of rappers Saweetie and Quavo fighting in an elevator, and fans are linking the two events.
In the video posted by TMZ on Tuesday (March 30th), Quavo and Saweetie are seen fighting inside an elevator at her Hollywood apartment complex in 2020.
The surveillance footage shows the pair engaging in a physical fight, with Saweetie first swinging her arm at Quavo before he pulls her into the elevator and wrestles her to the floor.
Saweetie then remains on the floor for the remainder of the video until the elevator reaches a new level where they exit.
They appear to be fighting over an orange suitcase that Quavo is holding, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Quavo & Saweetie out here fighting in the elevator like Jay Z & Solange.”
“This Quavo and Saweetie altercation reminds me of the Jay Z and Solange situation,” wrote another.
At the time of writing this, Saweetie and Quavo have not spoken out about the video.
