Jay Z may be Kanye West's best man, but he's certainly not making Yeezy's trip down the aisle any simpler.

At least that's according to a wedding insider who tells TMZ that Jay Z has delayed Kanye's prenup and is forcing Kimye to put off getting hitched.

The story goes that since Kanye recently signed with Jay's Roc Nation management team, they're the ones responsible for some details of his prenuptial agreement and since Ye is still a new client, Jay's people are taking some time to get caught up to speed.

In the meantime, of course, Kim and Kanye are forced to delay their much-hyped wedding...and Kim doesn't seem like she'd be the most patient bride.

Jay Z was not the only victim in this month's Solange Knowles' attack.

New York's Standard Hotel also saw its security breached with the release of the viral surveillance video - and it has now reacted to the situation by firing the individual involved.

In a statement released to a number of news outlets, the establishment said the employee terminated was "responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ.

"The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies," the statement added.

While the Jay Z-Solange Knowles fight may not have been funny for the parties involved, the rest of us are finding plenty of comedy in the drama.

The Internet has already blessed us with a slew of hilarious Solange-themed memes, and now some ingenious Madison Avenue Don Draper-types are getting in on the act.

Solange Knowles' Purse Ad

That's an ad for the Anya Hindmarch clutch bag Solange brought to the 2014 MET Gala...and later used as a weapon with which to bludgeon her brother-in-law. Certainly seems the brand has found a silver lining in Solange's dark cloud of rage!

The ad is funny stuff, to be sure, but we're guessing Solange is less than amused:

In the wake of the Solange Knowles-Jay Z fight, it seemed at first as though Beyonce had avoided taking sides.

She traveled to Costa Rica with her sister, then sat courtside with her husband at NBA playoff games.

New evidence indicates, however, that Bey might be choosing Solange over Hov for reasons that remain a mystery.

First, Beyonce posted new Instagram photos with Solange in what appeared to be a message to the world that the sisters are closer than ever.

Now, some believe that recent photos of Beyonce show that Mrs. Carter has begun the process of having a symbolic tattoo removed from her wedding ring finger.

We interrupt our hourly coverage of Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z to bring you news of a different kind about this rapper:

He's going to the Kimye wedding after all! As Kanye West's Best Man!

Earlier reports had claimed Jay Z and Beyonce would not even be attending the festivities in Paris, but Radar Online says Jay recently sent Kanye a gift that made his intentions clear.

"It was a gold-plated, diamond-encrusted flask, delivered with a $10,000 bottle of scotch, for Kanye to have for his wedding day,” the source says, adding that Jay Z inscribed the present with the words "Best Man."

Did Solange Knowles attack Jay Z this month because the rapper refused to help her career?

Because Solange clashed with Rachel Roy on the night in question and Jay Z refused to intervene?

Because Solange was wasted?

We may never know the truth behind this violent assault - which took place at a MET Gala after-party on May 5 in the elevator of The Standard Hotel - but it does now appear as if the participants have put it behind them.

Sources confirm to TMZ that Jay Z and Solange Knowles spent part of yesterday afternoon at Mr. Flawless, a high-end jewelry in New York City.

New rumors about why Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z seem to be surfacing every hour, but a new report from London's Daily Mail offers an explanation that would make an awful lot of sense. 

Solange Has a Drinking Problem
Many have pointed out that the fight took place at the end of a very long night of partying, and Solange may have been drunk at the time of the event. Reactions from those around her suggest this sort of thing happens often.

A source tells the tabloid that Solange is tired of being overshadowed by Beyonce and has been frustrated for years by Jay's refusal to help her with her singing career.

Says the insider: "Solange is so angry because Jay Z promised to giver her more help with her career, and when she brought it up again the night of the Gala, he told her he just didn't have the time to work with her in the studio."

Smart move on Hov's part. He probably figured a classy event like the MET Gala was the perfect place to break the news, since Solange wouldn't want to embarrass herself by making a scene. 

How wrong he was.

Why did Solange Knowles violently attack Jay Z inside an elevator of The Standard Hotel on the night of May 5?

We may now have a partial answer.

According to a People sources, Knowles was "provoked" by designer Rachel Roy earlier that evening, with Beyonce stepping in to tell Roy "not to talk to her sister."

Jay remained silent during that initial confrontation.

Roy has known the Knowles family for years and is actually the ex-wife of Jay Z's former business partner, Damon Dash.

She was also a guest over the weekend at Kim Kardashian's bridal party.

Toward the end of the night, "Jay said something inappropriate to Beyonce and Solange, and she snapped," says the insider.

"When they got in the elevator, it escalated quickly the way family tensions can [and] got exceptionally heated the way family moments can."

Jay Z and Beyonce may be making headlines for all of the wrong reasons these days, but it seems they're attempting to quietly shift the public's focus back onto their music.

Solange Knowles' attack on Jay Z has dominated the headlines for the past two days and while neither member of the hip hop power couple have commented on the controversy, Jay and Bey have released two new tour dates. 

The (appropriately named) On the Run Tour will now include stops at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Did the Carters schedule a stop at the site where Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian as a way of telling us their marriage is stronger than ever? Almost certainly not! But it's fun to speculate!

There's been a lot of speculation over what caused the Solange Knowles-Jay Z fight that captured the world's attention yesterday.

But while the rest of us were busy trying to figure out what sparked the conflict, 50 Cent was recording hilarious fight night commentary over the now-infamous footage.

Sadly, Fiddy only gives us a few seconds of his ghetto boxing commentator routine, but in this case, a few seconds is all we need.

"I will f--k you up, Jay!" says 50, assuming the role of Solange. "F--k your Marcy s--t! This is Houston!"

While 50 clearly recorded the commentary for laughs, it's hard to imagine he didn't get a kick out of watching his former rap rival get assaulted by his sister-in-law.
