Solange Knowles Kicked Out of Club for Inflatable Banana?
While one member of the Knowles family was announcing her pregnancy in front of millions of television viewers, the other was getting tossed out of a nightclub for holding inflatable fruit ... A banana to be specific.
Solange Knowles, the younger sister of mommy-to-be Beyonce, was kicked out of Club Cameo in Miami on Sunday night for carrying an inflatable banana into the establishment. Not that this isn't weird enough, but apparently the banana was five-feet tall. After Knowles was told she could not enter, she claimed that the club employees were being racist, and according to TMZ, she became "unruly with off-duty officers" on the scene.
On Knowles' official Twitter page, the celeb posted about the incident as it was happening, writing, "I have literally had my last leg with discriminating police! Miami police department will be notified. She then continued, "A police officer just pulled a weapon on me .... I have done NOTHING illegal, against the law, or anything of the sort." Solange then said, "It is time to do something about it. I am a mother raising a young black child in America. Im going to die trying!"
Apparently, the weapon that Solange is referring to was a knife that the a police officer pulled out as he threatened to pop the balloon. To us, this story sounds fishy from both sides. Goofy gags aren't always welcomed in posh nightclubs, and pulling a knife about an inflatable banana is pretty intense. Whatever the case really is, we hope both parties resolve this conflict.
