The twists and turns surrounding Solange Knowles’ elevator controversy doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. While we continue to dig and speculate, there are reports that Beyonce’s baby sister and Jay Z have already made up.

According to TMZ, the two were spotted in NYC, jewelry shopping at at Mr. Flawless. No photos of have yet hit, but the site reports

Jay Z and Solange Knowles went looking for jewelry together Tuesday afternoon at a high-end NYC jewelry store … TMZ has learned.

Our sources connected with the store say Jay and Solange were in Mr. Flawless, where they were looking for women’s jewelry for around 20 minutes.

We’re told the pair showed no signs of strife, and looked at gems with Mr. Flawless himself. They looked, but tried nothing on. They left the store without buying anything.

Jay and Solange didn’t talk much inside the store … they pretty much just browsed quietly.

In more Knowles-Carter news, another theory as to why Solange went bezerk on Mr. Carter, has been released.

According to the New York Daily News, the incident happened when Jay Z insisted on going to Rihanna’s Met Gala after-party. Allegedly, some of Solange’s non-famous friends showed up uninvited at the star-studded soiree. A source tells the site:

“Two of her friends, who were not dressed for the Met Ball, showed up at The Standard and caused a scene downstairs. They wouldn’t leave and kept name dropping Jay Z. They were pretending they were guests of his and not hers. Management went to Julius (Beyonce’s bodyguard) and said there’s a problem.”

Allegedly, Jay Z got wind of it Solange’s uninvited friends and told her

don’t use my name.

On the way out, Jay Z said he’d be heading to Rihanna’s party. This didn’t sit well with Solange, who was said to be tips (according to a second source). A second source tells the New York Daily News,

She seemed drunk and irritated. She said, ‘Why can’t you go home?’ and to Beyonce ‘Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?’

Jay Z  allegedly replied:

You’re one to talk

And this allegedly, sent Solange over the edge, resulting in the video that we’ve all seen. The speculation continues, but we’re crossing our fingers that a few more outings between Solange and Jay Z will quiet them down.


UPDATED // 2:12 p.m. EST // May 14th 

There are conflicting reports as to whether Solange and Jay Z were spotted shopping in NYC. According to Wendy Williams, the two did NOT visit Mr. Flawless, but Floyd Mayweather did (we have photos of Mayweather leaving Mr. Flawless). We were unable to find photos of Jay and Solange, which led us to believe that something was a bit sketchy with spottings. Also, one of our New Orleans sources says that Solange is actually in New Orleans. Story developing.
