SOLANGE Knowles might appear on Saturday Night Live.
The DJ and singer — who caused controversy this week when a video of her attacking sister Beyonce‘s husband Jay-Z on a lift leaked online — is set to mock the incident on Saturday Night Live.
“Solange is talking to SNL today [May 14] about a possible skit on the fight,” a source told Hollywood Life.
The skit would happen on the Saturday, May 17 episode, which will be hosted by SNL alum Andy Samberg. Solange has worked with Andy and his comedic musical group The Lonely Island in the past, on their song Semicolon.
Sources recently claimed Solange was “crazy drunk and out of it” when she launched her attack on her brother-in-law.
Sources say Solange — who was seen on video attempting to punch and kick the rapper, who does not retaliate, while her sister Beyoncé weakly looks on — has been struggling with family and career issues after being dropped by Jay’s record label.
Solange had worked hard to keep her music career afloat after she left Roc Nation last year and started her own label, Saint Records.
“Clearly she was on something at the party, she was drunk and out of it,” a source said.
“The girl is crazy and prone to outbursts. She got in the elevator with Jay and Bey. He had made a comment that she didn’t like, and she just snapped.
“She was the girl who drank too much and was behaving badly at the party.
“She used to be on [Jay Z’s] label [Roc Nation], but now she isn’t. And she moved to New Orleans from Brooklyn with her son. Solange still spends a lot of time in New York, but she is further away from her family, which has created some issues.”
Meanwhile, bosses at The Standard were desperately trying to track down who leaked the surveillance tape to TMZ for up to $250,000.
“This was being shopped for five days to the highest bidder,” said a source who confirmed the tape was sold for $250,000. The Standard has hired Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer, who is investigating who shopped the tape.
“There are only a handful of people who’d have access to that tape,” the source said. “The Standard owns that tape.
“Once it was out, Jay Z’s people felt they couldn’t control it. They were reluctant to try and publicly fight this.”
