The Jay Z - Solange Knowles elevator fight that took place at last May's Met Gala was one of the biggest stories of 2014 and every news outlet covered the story extensively. No one knows exactly why the fight broke out, though many rumors have started, but behind the scenes, friends of the power couple were there to support them through the difficult time. While on The Howard Stern Show early this morning, star actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who became friends with Bey and Jay after meeting them at a a benefit in New York years ago, claimed she was in the family's corner right form the start. When Howard asked her how she reacted to the fight footage, Paltrow responded, "I never say, 'What's going?' If any of my friends have anything like that, I call right away. Absolutely. If someone's clearly going through something, I always go straight for it."

Always a blessing to have good friends there for support.
