Quavious Marshall aka Quavo who's part of the hip-hop trio Migos and rapper-songwriter Diamonté Harper aka Saweetie's breakup had been the center of attention a while, but a recently surfaced video shows more about their relationship. The video allegedly sees the duo in a fight in an elevator before they had split, with TMZ revealing that the "altercation" was "captured on video."

The video reportedly sees them in an elevator at Saweetie's North Hollywood apartment complex back in 2020 as per TMZ - the publication posted the video on Tuesday. At the start of the video, Saweetie is seen reportedly "swinging" at Quavo before he "pulls" her back inside the elevator and "wrestles" her as they end up on the floor. As expected, the newly surfaced video sparked a huge social media storm, with some users getting deja vu - if you were thinking about Jay Z and Solange's elevator fight video, then you're right. It didn't take much time before Twitter blew up with tweets supporting either Quavo or Saweetie, but what's interesting is that Jay Z and Solange got added to the mix. Both elevator videos were compared with some upset that people supported Solange while others were just over the hype.

Did Quavo hit Saweetie in the elevator video? Shocking truth behind fight after alleged cheating rumors

Quavo did NOT take back Bentley he gifted Saweetie after their split, it's a false rumor: Sources 

Saweetie tweeted about her breakup with Quavo on March 19 saying,"I’m single. I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character. Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women."

Quavo also responded to Saweetie’s tweets writing, “I know you want to make this into a show so I’ll play my part just this one time. I don’t normally put my business out there, especially my personal life. I feel the need to address this so there are no false narratives.” He added, "I had love for you and disappointed you did all that. You are not the woman I thought you were. I wish you nothing but the best."




Was Quavo 'abusing her'?

There were many opinions on Twitter and we wouldn't say there is any consensus as to how people reacted to a new elevator fight video - some supporting Quavo, others wondering what he even did to deserve such backlash. "Aye man... if JAY Z was made fun of for getting beat by solange of course everybody ignoring saweetie swinging on quavo and are focused on him... pushing her into the elevator to avoid causing a commotion? am i missing something?," wrote one user.

Another snubbed Quavo writing, "Comparing the solange/jay z situation to saweetie/quavo doesn’t apply bc last time i checked, jay z didn’t throw solange to the floor." Yet another user with a different opinion wrote, "What Solange did on that elevator was celebrated but y’all don’t have the same energy for Quavo tryna get his bag back?? Wow."

There were a lot of negative comments against Quavo as people continued to discuss the weight of the situation. One user wrote, "These two different scenarios? We can’t even say solange “abused”or is “abusive” to jay since there is no relationship there & that just makes it assault. My only question is, are you saying people should praise Quavo for his actions?"

Another added, "Jay Z emotionally abused his wife with his constant cheating, even while she was preggers. That's why the world laughed when Solange whooped him for her sister Quavo was manhandling his girlfriend who he cheated on. She was trying to escape while barefoot. He was abusing her."



Some were just over it. "Whether it’s Quavo, Saweetie, or Solange, EVERYBODY need to keep their fuckin’ hands to them selves! Whether it’s male/female. I’m glad I don’t have kids today because if you hit my son, Imma tell him to 2 piece that bitch without the biscuit!," wrote one user. Another added, "I ain’t commenting on Saweetie & Quavo...I didn’t see nothin in that elevator...we gone mind our business just like we did when Solange rocked Jay in that this day we don’t know what really went down."

Seven years ago, a video of Beyoncé, Solange and Jay-Z in an elevator returning from an after-party for the 2014 Met Gala sparked fury. The leaked footage saw Beyoncé's sister fight with her brother-in-law. While to this day, no one has actually confirmed what the fight was about, the video is hot topic on Twitter since Quavo's and Saweetie's elevator video came to light. Solange beat and kicked Jay-Z as her sister watched. Many fans of Solange believed that she was backing her sister up about something. In an interview back in 2008 on Angela Yee’s Lip Service podcast, Solange said, "You cannot f*ck with my sister… I might try to beat your a**."

Sources also revealed to E! News and People at the time that the fight might have included Rachel Roy, a fashion designer. As per reports, a source revealed that Roy had gotten "flirty" with Jay-Z which led to "Beyoncé [to approach] Rachel to let her know the behavior was disrespectful and she wanted her out of their lives for good.”

“Solange came over to have her sister’s back, and things got heated with her and Rachel. Jay said some disrespectful things to Beyoncé and Solange as the confrontation was going down. That’s why all hell broke loose in the elevator and why Beyoncé just stood back and let Solange hit Jay," added the source.

The famous trio did release a statement about the incident that in part read, "As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”

It further added, "The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."
