The Internet thinks it has solved the mystery of the Solange Knowles/Jay Z elevator fight, but TMZ has learned the tweet is a fraud.
Shortly after TMZ posted the insane video of Solange losing it -- a photo of a tweet emerged in which Solange accuses Jay Z of hitting Beyonce ... and the image was forwarded over and over again yesterday.
But the tweet in question was never really posted on Solange's Twitter feed, and never even existed -- IT'S A TOTAL FAKE. Solange's rep tells TMZ, "I can confirm that Solange did not tweet that; that is not a real tweet."
But as far as theories go ... it's worth noting that Solange has deleted all Instagram photos with Beyonce in them ... except for one.
The mystery lives on ...
Physically ATTACKED by Beyonce's Sister [VIDEO]
5/12/2014 8:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jay Z was ferociously assaulted by Beyonce's sister Solange ... who was wildly kicking and swinging at him inside an elevator ... and the attack was captured on surveillance video ... obtained by TMZ.
According to our sources, it all went down at a Met Gala after party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC. In the video ... Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange step into the elevator ... and then Solange goes crazy, screaming at Jay before unleashing a violent attack.
A large man -- who appears to be a bodyguard -- attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay grabs her foot, but never attempts to strike her. Beyonce stands by without getting physically involved.
And this is interesting. When you look closely, you see the bodyguard hit the emergency stop switch on the 12th floor -- mid fight -- presumably to keep the fight private.
At one point, Solange smacks Jay with her purse ... spilling the contents all over the floor of the elevator.
Eventually the group exits the elevator ... but not before Solange takes a few last shots.
All three walked out of the building together -- Solange looks pissed -- but while Bey and Solange get in one car ... security walks Jay to a different one.
It's unclear what triggered the fight.
Still Running Game
Even With Mom in the Picture
5/12/2014 5:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Just because it was Mother's Day, that doesn't mean Justin Bieber's mom got ALL his attention at Sunday's Los Angeles Clippers game -- he still found time to catch a glimpse of the hottie a few seats over.
Bieber snuck a peak while his mom was turned around, but you have to wonder if Biebs noticed the GIANT rock she was sporting on her ring finger.
Baby, baby, baby ... OH!!!
Turns out the woman in the photo is Scooter Braun's fiancée -- and Scooter is sitting on the other side of her. So ... definitely not cool, Justin. Not cool.
Mother's Day with the Clippers
... We're Sittin' Courtside!
5/11/2014 1:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Like a good son should, Justin Bieber is spending his Mother's Day with his mom ... hangin' out courtside at the Clippers vs. Thunder playoff game in L.A. ... and TMZ Sports has the pic.
Sources at the game tell us ... Bieber and his mom Pattie Mallette seem like they've been having a good time -- and spent some time chattin' with other huge stars including Mark Wahlberg and Floyd Mayweather.
Bieber even wore a shirt to the game ... though, he left his sleeves at home.
Posthumous MJ Music Is Just Wrong ...
5/11/2014 5:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jermaine Jackson does not like the idea of new Michael Jackson music being released, but says it would have been cool if the Jackson 5 had worked on it.
JJ went from guarded to bitter when we asked him about the new MJ music Saturday afternoon in Calabasas. He says he's only heard one of the songs so far ... and thought it was good.
But overall, he's against the idea of MJ's music being released without MJ around ... noting the estate passed over the Jackson 5 to work with producers like Timbaland.
Loyal til the end.
Bethenny & Jason
Guess Whose Face Tells
The Real Story

Bethenny Frankel and estranged hubby Jason Hoppy buried the hatchet -- temporarily -- to celebrate their daughter Bryn's birthday.
They were strolling the street in NYC, looking happy, but snapshots can be deceiving.
As TMZ first reported, Frankel filed for divorce in January 2013, but they have been in a mega- fight over money and custody issues ever since. Just last month, Bethenny was ordered to fork over $100k to Hoppy's attorneys ... and still there is no deal done.
Maybe the divorce will be settled before Bryn's next birthday.

Jada Pinkett Smith
There's NOTHING Sexual
About Willow/Moises Pic
5/8/2014 3:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jada Pinkett Smith was locked and loaded Wednesday ... telling photogs the pic of her 13-year-old daughter in a bed with a 20-year-old guy was innocent ... and we're all "covert pedophiles" for thinking otherwise.
Jada arrived at LAX for a trip to NYC ... and she was brimming with anger, knowing we'd ask about the pic of Willow and her friend, "Hannah Montana" star Moises Arias.
Jada and Will rarely comment about their family ... so this one clearly got to her.
'Game of Thrones' Director
My Wife Is Holding Kids Hostage
5/8/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The divorce between "Game of Thrones" director Alex Graves and his estranged wife has gone nuclear ... he claims she's a vindictive, unbalanced woman who's holding their kids hostage.
Graves claims in court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- that his wife Sarah refuses to let him see his 15-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter unless he falls for her ploy to get more money.
Graves says he worked his ass off as a Hollywood director to provide a stable, upscale lifestyle for his family ... with exotic trips and festive holiday celebrations.
But Graves thinks his wife resented his work and complained for years he didn't earn enough because he's too stupid.
He says she's bipolar and is fixated on the belief he's having an affair. Graves accuses Sarah of spying on him and using their son to try to bait him into admitting infidelity.
We've contacted Sarah's attorney ... so far no word back.
Will and Jada Smith
Who Cares if Willow and Moises
Take Sexy Pics
5/7/2014 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
13-year-old Willow Smith is old enough to make decisions on who she hangs with -- even innocently in bed ... this according to Willow's parents.
Sources connected to the Smith family tell TMZ ... Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith believe their daughter is "very mature" ... enough so to make her own decisions, as long as they don't clearly cross the line.
Will and Jada view the now-famous photo of Willow in bed with 20-year-old "Hannah Montana" star Moises Arias as innocent fun ... an expression of art.
The Smiths have known Moises for years, and he's best friends with 15-year-old Jaden.
Bottom line ... Will and Jada have NO issue with the pic.
Will & Jada's Daughter
Photographed in Bed with 20-Year-Old Actor
5/6/2014 4:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Will Smith's 13-year-old daughter took a pic in bed that's raising a lot of eyebrows ... because she's laying next to a topless 20-year-old man.
In the photo ... Willow Smith is in bed -- fully clothed and on top of the covers -- and an actor named Moises Arias is sitting next to her sans shirt.
Moises -- best known for his role as Rico on "Hannah Montana" -- and Willow don't appear to be touching each other in the black and white shot he posted on Instagram ... still it's a strange scene.
Moises eventually deleted his IG post -- but other people have reposted it and called the image perverted.
It appears the pic was taken by Moises and Willow's friend ... who posted the bed photo and several others of Willow, Jaden Smith and the Jenner girls.
We've reached out to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's reps to find out what's going on -- but haven't heard anything back yet.
Breaks Down in Court
During Mom's Sappy Home Video
5/5/2014 9:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Modern Family" star Ariel Winter broke down in tears in court just moments ago ... after her mom played a schmaltzy home video of Ariel's childhood memories.
Chrystal Workman played the video for the courtroom as a weird last ditch effort to get her daughter to change her mind about living with her older sister Shanelle ... instead of with her mom.
Chrystal told the court she would relinquish her bid to reclaim her parental rights over Ariel -- after a judge stripped her of custody in 2012 -- if Ariel agreed to watch the video ... which she did.
The home video contained piano instrumentals and pictures from Ariel's childhood -- as a baby, from school, of the whole family together, and more.
Ariel, Shanelle, Chrystal, and several other members of the Workman family were in tears as the video played -- but Ariel didn't change her mind ... and the judge signed off on Shanelle's permanent guardianship.
As we reported, Ariel had accused her mom back in 2012 of emotionally and physically abusing her. Ariel's been living with her older sister Shanelle ever since.
Master P's Wife
He's a Liar ...
I Don't Do Drugs!!!
5/1/2014 11:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Master P's estranged wife says the rapper is straight up lying when he says she does drugs in front of their kids ... and claims it's all part of P's attempt to brainwash their kids against her.
Sonya Miller is reacting to last night's comments from her estranged husband, telling a TMZ photog he'd give her whatever she wanted in their divorce ... as long as she got off drugs.
But Miller says she is not on drugs and that she's never done drugs in front of her kids. She says she feels horrible her kids claims she's on drugs, and feels P brainwashed them.
Miller claims P is just using their kids as pawns, saying, "When I filed divorce, that’s when he came and took my kids ... I was the one dealing with and raising those seven kids when he was running the streets."
Miller says she's looking forward to her day in court.
