Beyoncé Biographer Claims To Have The Tea On The Solange Elevator Smackdown

I am a fairly decently nosy person, but I have a list of questions that I have settled on never knowing the answers to. That list includes the nitty-gritty details of that elevator fight that went down between Solange and Jay Z last year. However, New York Times Best-Selling author J. Randy Taraborrelli claims to have the tea on that infamous showdown, which he intends to spill in his new unauthorized biography, Becoming Beyoncé.Beyonce1

Taraborrelli talked about his book last year, which he says is “based on exhaustive research” that includes “exclusive interviews with the people in the superstar’s life who have been pivotal to her personal and professional development.” Among those pivotal players who contributed to Taraborrelli’s book is former Destiny’s Child manager Brian Moore, who dished on DC’s early days in an exclusive interview with Madame Noire earlier this year.

Grand Central Publishing boasts that the biography will highlight many of the “firsts” in Bey’s career while also delving into her personal life. Provided below are just a few of the questions Taraborrelli and GCP publishers believe that the book will answer.

Beyoncé’s 1st boyfriend of 10 years and what happened to him.

How many boyfriends she really had.

Why Jay Z & Beyoncé’s story is indeed a love story through and through – one that has never really been told.

How did Rihanna come between Beyoncé and Jay Z?

Beyoncé’s relationship with her father before and after she fired him and why she fired him.

Why she really created Sasha Fierce.

What really happened in the elevator between Jay Z and Beyoncé’s sister Solange?

Becoming Beyoncé is slated to hit shelves October 27, 2015.

Considering how hard Bey and her team work to keep a tight rein on her personal affairs, it will be interesting to see what will be revealed in this new bio.

Will you be adding Becoming Beyoncé to your fall reading list?

  1. I’ve never bought a celebrity biography. But oh this one I’m so going to endeavour to get. Chai. The potential of so much rich tea getting spilled.

    • That writer better quit playin’ and get a day-job. That “un-autobiography” will NEVER see the light of day! Doesn’t he know what happens to people who cross Bey? Didn’t he see what happened to 106 & Park? People have been known to disappear without a trace…

  2. I doubt this is true, but I think this fella has just secured his spot on the bestsellers list. People keep falling for these cheap publicity tricks (‘cheap’ is the act, not the outcome, mind you).

  3. Nope. I am not interested. There is world hunger. *said with a straight face.
