    In May, Beyoncé's little sister Solange went nuclear on Bey's hubby and rap icon Jay-Z in an elevator at the Met Gala in NYC. Was it faked?

    Hmm.

    The elevator tape leaked and everyone worried that there was drama in the Knowles x Hova extended family. The trio swept the sitch under the rug, saying it was over before it started and that things were fine, since all families fight. Then Jayonce went on their On the Run Tour this summer and divorce rumors were percolating from stem to stern.

    Was the elevator fight staged and was it an orchestrated publicity ploy, engineered by Jayonce, to drum up press for their joint tour? That's what Bey's dad and former manager Mathew Knowles thinks.

    Papa Bear Knowles hit the "Roula and Ryan Radio Show" in Houston to talk about the elevator fight.

    "[They needed something to] ignite that tour," Knowles, who is divorced from Bey's mom Tina and who allegedly had many affairs, said. "It's called a Jedi mind trick. A Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of the time. All I know is everyone is talking about it. Ticket sales went up, Solange's album sales went up 200 percent..."

    So he is hinting that it was a trick.

    Do you think Mathew Knowles is off his rocker with his comments or has he revealed the truth? Bey is so notoriously private, she may not like her daddy talking like this!
