The world learned about the alleged cheating after the Met Gala in 2014 and Radar's source revealed the true details about what happened that night to cause Solange Knowles to eventually attack her brother-in-law in an elevator. "Rachel came up to Beyonce's group and said hello to Jay Z. Beyonce said nothing to her but she didn't make her leave. Solange started in on both Beyonce and Jay Z about not letting her around them. She was furious that Beyonce would just sit there and let Rachel hit on her man," said the source.

"Rachel https://radaronline.com/photos/beyonce-jay-z-cheating-photos-rachel-roy-damon-dash-slammed-lemonade-instagram/photo/1287961/ just couldn't leave them alone. Later in the night she came up to Beyonce and Jay again and a photographer wanted to take a picture. Beyonce just said yes because if she didn't it would cause a scene. Solange completely lost her temper at that point. She was yelling at Beyonce telling her that Rachel was going to use that picture and that she needed to put her foot down. So when they were in the elevator first Solange was screaming at Bey then she attacked Jay."

Roy posted a message after Lemonade dropped where she seemed to be taunting the singer. "Good hair don't care, but will always take good lighting, for selfies, or truths, always. live in the light. #nodramaqueens." She was so swiftly attacked by the Beyhive that she took the post down. Roy canceled a public appearance after the backlash and fled to Los Angeles to hide out. She released a statement stating: "There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors." Meanwhile, Rita Ora was also named as a possible mistress of Jay Z after years of rumor and then her Snapchat video where she was wearing a lemon bra and a "J" necklace. The source told Radar that they did not believe Jay Z actually had an affair with his protégée because she was "a child" when they met.
