E! News is reporting that the reason behind Solange Knowles going off on Jay Z in the Standard Hotel elevator is due to inappropriate flirting going on between Hov and fashion designer Rachel Roy earlier in the evening.

Sources are telling E! that Roy and Jay were getting flirty throughout the night, enough to make Beyoncé approach Roy and tell her she was being disrespectful and to leave them alone. Solange was with Beyoncé when this happened and when the argument heated up, Jay Z allegedly said some ill-mannered remarks to both Beyoncé and Solange.

These remarks are thought to be the reason why Beyoncé did not stop Solange from attacking her husband in the elevator. Rachel Roy is also the ex-wife of one of Jay Z's business partners Damon Dash.
