After Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z at this year’s MET Gala, many felt that Beyonce’s husband and sister would never be seen together again.

And yet, the feuding in-laws apparently patched things up almost immediately. Jay joined Solange and Beyonce in New Orleans over the weekend alongside another guest who some believe was the key to the instantly squashed beef.

That’s Jay with Bey, Solange and their mother, Tina Knowles.

Affectionately known in the Knowles’ inner circle as “Mama Tina,” the matriarch is said to hold tremendous influence over her daughter’s lives and careers and it’s been rumored that she applied pressure to Solange to make nice with Jay.

If that’s really the case, we’ve gotta tip our hats to a woman who’s powerful enough to end a war between a man as wealthy and revered as Jay Z, and a woman as explosively violent as Solange. 


Proving once again that the Knowles and Carters are masters of public relations, Solange and Jay Z issued a statement about the fight in which both parties accepted blame and apologized.

No explanation for the tiff was offered, and yet still, the public seems satisfied.

So possibly thanks to Mama Tina, the whole affair appears to be settled. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the Solange-Jay Z fight video one last time:
