Jay-Z has given us a vague insight about the fight he had with Solange Knowles at the 2014 Met Gala.

The two were seen arguing a hotel lift after footage was leaked - Knowles physically attacked Jay-Z while Beyonce looked on calmly. A joint statement was published not long after in which the pair said that they had 'worked through' their issues.

However, the rapper this weekend maintained that he and his sister-in-law have a good relationship.

'We've always had a great relationship,' he said on the Rap Radar podcast prior to his V Festival performance on the weekend. '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, but it ain't nothing.'

'We've had one disagreement ever,' he continued. '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.'

Jay-Z addressed the fight in his most recent album, 4: 44, also referencing Eric Benet, who was allegedly unfaithful to his ex-wife, Halle Berry.

'You egged Solange on / Knowin' all along, all you had to say you was wrong / You almost went Eric Benét / Let the baddest girl in the world get away / I don't even know what else to say / N***a, never go full Eric Benét.'

Meanwhile, Bey and Blue Ivy were living it up at a wedding in Colorado this weekend.
