Solange Knowles

Cop Drama Over GIANT Banana!

8/29/2011 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0829_solange_knowles_bn_banana
TMZ has obtained the police version of what happened Sunday between cops and Solange Knowles.

Cops say Beyonce's younger sis tried entering Club Cameo in Miami Beach and was denied because she was holding a 5-foot tall, inflatable banana.  According to cops, Solange began complaining that she was turned away for racial reasons.

Cops say Knowles became unruly with off-duty officers, who took her across the street to try and calm her down.  Solange claims that's when cops pulled a "weapon" on her -- we're told she claimed it was a knife -- and threatened to deflate the banana.

Miami Beach PD Internal Affairs must investigate all such complaints, so they're getting in touch with her.

The fact that she can sit there and state, "I'm raising a young black son and I'm going to die trying" makes me sick. Her son may be black but considering his aunt is Beyonce and his Uncle is Jay-Z, he appears to be better off than most black (and white, asian, hispanic, etc) children in the world. His race has very little to do with his future life struggles.

OK, where has that banana been? Also, since when do cops carry knives. Put your banana in the air or we'll stick you, just doesn't sound right.
I've got a peeling that she just wanted attention. And knock off the racist crap, it doesn't work anymore!

This person is still around???? And still trying to get attention. It's easy to see Beyonce got all the talent and the class in that family. I wouldn't want this poser around either and it has nothing to do with her race or her banana!

This woman is always quick to pull the race card. She has a serious attitude problem that needs adjusting. Get over yourself and lose that HUGE chip on your shoulder.

Solange Knowles definitely has some "real" issues and if she's not careful, big sis Beyonce may just cut her off just like her father. All she had to do was "dump the banana" and everything would have been kosher!!! Seriously, who needs a 5ft. banana to get their party on??? The club's management does have the right to refuse entry to individuals who may seem "unstable"!!! I have to wonder if she had been drinking before she arrived and it was obvious to the security personnel at the door??? She brought this drama upon herself. If she didn't like the way she was treated, she could have taken it up with the management at another time. The fact that the police got involved indicates she was making herself out to be a real nuisance. There's a time and place for everything. Perhaps she should choose her battles much more carefully.

Only ******s pull the race card. Maybe accusing cops of being racist should have a minimum sentence of 10 years hard labor (i.e. picking cotton). See Solange, the race card doesn't feel too good now does it? Bitch.

Just look how quick some of you play the race card. Thats how quick ppl play the race card in this country against minorities. So believe it, it's true, there is still racism in America and some of you are displaying it.

Solange is a very bitter, angry woman. I've seen her on talk shows and she even walked off one of them because she didn't like the questions. Why so angry, Solange??
