Jay Z and Solange, Beyonce
What sparked the infamous elevator fight between rapper Jay Z and his sister-in-law Solange Knowles earlier this month may never be made public, but the incident is a dramatic reminder that celebrity families are just as susceptible to feuds as the rest of us.
Ten days following the media frenzy that erupted, Solange, Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce, released a statement about the surveillance video that showed Solange, the younger sister of Beyonce, hitting and kicking her brother-in-law. They announced that both Jay Z and Solange assume responsibility for their roles in the altercation, and they are all moving forward as a united family.
Gary Coleman confronted a number of financial struggles throughout his life, but the “Diff’rent Strokes” star also had a strained relationship with his mother and father. He sued his parents, Sue and Willie Coleman, for misappropriation of his assets in 1989.
The Colemans, who had been estranged from the actor for years, told NBC journalist Meredith Vieira that in 2010 they learned of their son’s death through an impersonal message left by his wife Shannon Price.
