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.

As you've likely heard by now, Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z last week and the incident was captured on security cam footage that was just released yesterday.

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.

Needless to say, the Knowles-Carter clan is less than pleased to have their dirty laundry aired in public, but instead of putting spin on the fight via carefully worded press releases, they're simply playing it cool.

Beyonce took Solange to Costa Rica shortly after the incident and she sat courtside with her husband at least night's Brooklyn Nets-Miami Heat game. 

Aside from a cryptic Beyonce tweet about relationships posted the night of the altercation we have no indication that anyone involved was the least bit bothered by the attack.

All of this nonchalance begs the question: does this sort of thing happen often?

We may never know why Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z in an elevator this month and left fans questioning the state of Jay Z's marriage to Beyonce.

We may never be privy to the words that were exchanged between this rapper and his sister-in-law before the incident, which went viral yesterday morning.

But the Internet has some ideas. Within minutes of the Solange assault video hitting the Internet, the hashtag #WhatJayZSaidtoSolange started to trend on Twitter.

Users joked about Chris Brown, Street Fighter, Beyonce's blood-alcohol level and more as the disturbing surveillance video became the center of the comedy universe.

Again, we have no idea what transpired or caused the surprising fight inside that elevator. But we do know that the memes are good for a few chuckles ...

TMZ has released the full surveillance video of Solange Knowles' attacking Jay Z in the elevator of the Standard Hotel in New York City.

As previously reported, the assault took place on the way to a MET Gala after-party on May 5.

Beyonce and Jay Z walked the red carpet of that event in good spirits, posing for photographers along the way and even faking a proposal after Beyonce dropped a ring.

But something clearly took place soon afterwards... something that led to Bey's sister Solange Knowles brutally going after her brother-in-law:

Punching him, kicking him and needing to be physically restrained by a bodyguard, Solange was irate at Hov for reasons unknown.

Watch the video above to see Solange even smack Jay Z with her purse at one point, spilling the contents all over the floor.

Following this surprising and chaotic incident, Beyonce and Solange exited the building and got into a separate car from Jay.

Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z after the MET Gala last week, leading to widespread speculation about the relationship between Beyonce's sister and husband.

While Bey has yet to offer an explanation for what sparked the violent altercation, she did post a cryptic tweet moments after the incident:

So clearly relationships and "good influences" were on Beyonce's mind following the fight. We guess watching your sister punch and kick your husband would put anyone in a reflective mood.

But the question remains: who's side is Mrs. Carter on?

Beyonce and Jay Z looked as calm and happy as ever at the MET Costume Gala in New York City last month.

The latter's mock proposal even melted the Internet for a few hours.

But something went very wrong following this event, as TMZ has obtained surveillance footage of Solange Knowles absolutely GOING OFF on her brother-in-law inside an elevator at the Standard Hotel that same night.

It's unclear what prompted the violent attack, but Solange berates Jay Z before punching and kicking him.

Watch now as Beyonce stands idly by and a bodyguard gets in between Solange and her target, who doesn't respond in any sort of physical manner:

WTF, right?!?
