bey­once de­mands an apol­ogy from Jay Z

She told him it was time he talked about his fall­ing out with Solange

Heat (UK) - - This Week: We're Obsessed With.. -

Three years af­ter that el­e­va­tor in­ci­dent, Jay Z has fi­nally spo­ken in public about his bust-up with sis­ter-in-law Solange. He in­sisted every­thing was now fine be­tween the pair, but we’re told it was wife Bey­oncé who was be­hind his ad­mis­sion.

“Bey was giv­ing him grief about it. She’s wanted him to make a public apol­ogy for ages,” an in­sider tells heat. “She felt the mat­ter could be put to rest if Jay ad­dressed it head on and said that he and Solange were all good – which he did, call­ing her his ‘sis­ter’.”

In the in­fa­mous CCTV footage, a fu­ri­ous Solange was seen push­ing and punch­ing Jay af­ter the 2014 Met Ball, while Bey­oncé looked on. Ru­mours at the time sug­gested that Solange was an­gry be­cause Jay had cheated on Bey. Speak­ing about the ar­gu­ment last week, Jay said, “We had one dis­agree­ment ever. Be­fore and af­ter, we’ve been cool. She’s like my sis­ter. I will pro­tect her. That’s my sis­ter, not my sis­ter-in-law. My sis­ter. Pe­riod. I fought my brothers and ar­gued with my brothers my whole life. It just so hap­pens, who we are, th­ese things go into a dif­fer­ent space.”

While Bey­oncé was in­stru­men­tal in get­ting Jay to speak out about the in­ci­dent, we’re told the ar­rival of the cou­ple’s two-month-old twins Rumi and Sir also helped change his mind. “It was only af­ter the kids were born that Jay fi­nally de­cided to clear the air,” our source con­tin­ues. “He told friends that he needed to come clean about his pri­vate demons. He ad­dressed the cheat­ing ru­mours on his lat­est al­bum, and talked about his feud with Kanye

West [on a re­cent mu­sic pod­cast], as well as the Solange fight. He wants to be truth­ful for his kids and set a good ex­am­ple for them.”

And the cou­ple – who are also par­ents to five-year-old Blue Ivy – can move on with every­thing af­ter fi­nally buy­ing a fam­ily home in LA. Af­ter hav­ing spent most of this year in a $400K-a-month rented Mal­ibu man­sion (yes, we also won­dered how they coped), they’ve now splashed out a re­ported $88mil­lion on a 30,000sq ft Bel Air abode. The 13-bed­room home fea­tures

four out­door swim­ming pools, a spa and well­ness cen­tre, staff quar­ters and bul­let­proof win­dows. At least Jay will be well pro­tected if he ever gets on the wrong side of Solange again.
