Media Take Out just got a juicy bit of tea this Grammys weekend. We spoke to a top entertainment insider who told us that there is a growing sense in industry circles – that Beyonce and her sister Solange had a pretty serious falling out.
Beyonce is extremely close with her family members, and she and Solange used to be as thick as thieves. But many in the entertainment industry have noticed that Solange has been uncharacteristically absent from Bey’s side recently.
One insider explained, “We all thought it was odd that Solange wasn’t a part of [Beyonce’s new album] Renaissance. It’s the kind of sound that’s right up Solange’s alley.”
And not only has Solange not been a part of Bey’s new project – she hasn’t sent out a single tweet or Instagram post supporting Renaissance, Media Take Out has learned. A quick check of Solange’s IG page and Twitter shows that she’s only made reference to her own projects.
And we also noticed that Solange has not congratulated Beyonce for her Grammy wins this weekend either, or posted anything promoting Bey’s upcoming world tour. Wow.
Media Take Out asked the entertainment insider, who has worked closely with both Beyonce and Solange in the past, what she thought about Solange’s radio silence on Beyonce’s recent accomplishments.
The insider explained, “I think it’s weird for her not to be out supporting Beyonce. Bey took a chance on her latest album [Renaissance] and she actually needed everyone to support it, to propel it to being the hit.”
The insider said that she didn’t have any first hand evidence of a rift between the two. But she did tell Media Take Out, “I’ve heard things about their relationship. I think something is definitely going on between them.”
