Solange Knowles Takes on Miami Police Over Inflatable Banana

While Beyoncé was making news, revealing her baby bump to the world on MTV, her sister was in Miami making news by stirring up drama with Miami police.


TMZ spoke with law enforcement regarding an incident between the cops and Solange Knowles.


According to the police, when Knowles tried to get into Club Cameo in Miami Beach on Sunday, she was denied entry because she was holding a 5-foot, inflatable banana. The cops said that she began complaining, saying she wasn’t being let in for racial reasons.


After she became unruly toward off-duty officers, police say she was taken across the street in an effort to calm her down. Solange then claims that the officers pulled a “weapon” on her (she said it was a knife) and threatened to deflate the banana.


Because of Solange’s complaint, Miami Beach PD’s Internal Affairs will investigate the matter.
