To paraphrase one line that’s got fans talking, Beyonce sings something to the effect of:
We escalatin’, up in this b**ch like elevators,
Of course sometimes s**t goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.

The singer is referencing the incident in which her sister, Solange, physically assaulted rapper Jay Z when they were riding an elevator together.
There are several theories as to why Solange became enraged, why Beyonce stood by and did nothing and why Jay Z was so calm while being kicked, punched and spit at. Several sources claim Solange was defending her sister against Jay’s alleged multiple affairs with women including Rihanna and Rachel Roy.
The tabloids have gone into overdrive since the incident, claiming Beyonce and Jay Z are about to “uncouple”, a split is inevitable and “it’s not going to last.”
Page Six and the New York Daily News have written exposés on the marriage and both concur there’s a “business arrangement,” an unhappy marriage, cheating on both sides, and Beyonce’s looking for an apartment of her own.
