Was Jay Z and Solange's Elevator Incident Over a Spider? 'SNL' Says So

Apparently Solange Knowles attacked Jay Z because he had a spider on him.

That's according to "Saturday Night Live," which spoofed the leaked video showing Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator May 5 after the Met Gala as Beyonce stood by. The video shows Solange punching and kicking the rapper.

Jay Pharoah's Jay Z and Sasheer Zamata's Solange said it was because of the rapper's arachnophobia.

"Oh my God, there's a spider on you!" Zamata said in "exclusive" audio that wasn't previously released.

"What? Get it! You know I hate spiders," Pharoah responded.

A bodyguard nervously stood by as Pharoah and Zamata discussed the incident. Maya Rudolph later appeared as Beyonce and broke into song during her statement.

The real Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange told the Associated Press through a statement on Thursday that "families have problems and we're no different."
