Well, here's one rumor we can safely put to rest. 

A report recently surfaced claiming Beyoncé paid for her sister Solange's honeymoon in Brazil following the 28-year-old singer's nuptials last month to longtime love Alan Ferguson. The report went on to claim that Bey shelled out over $130,000 and alleged that the 33-year-old singer footed the bill for her younger sibling as a way to apologize for the drama that went down in May between Solange and Jay Z (you know, the infamous elevator fight). 

However, a rep for Solange exclusively tells E! News there's no truth to the rumors and insists that singer and her hubby, who are both successful in their own right, paid for the trip to Trancoso on their own. 

"Reports that Beyoncé paid for Solange's honeymoon with Alan Ferguson is false. There is no truth to this. Solange and Alan paid for their honeymoon themselves. They did not receive any compensation of any kind," Solange's rep E! News.

Knowles and Ferguson wed in New Orleans on Nov. 16. The couple exchanged vows in front of about 200 family and friends, including Beyoncé, brother-in-law Jay Z and close pal Questlove. "I had the best day of my life and ended it with an abundance of peace, love over flowing through me like never before," the twice-married star gushed in on Instagram. "Words only understate the feelings I experienced, but I want to thank you for all of your beautiful sentiments. I'm now one, with the one."

About nine months prior to the lovebird's I-dos, Solange made headlines when she allegedly attacked Jay Z in an elevator after the 2014 Met Gala (the incident was caught on surveillance footage). Days after the eyebrow-raising altercation, Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange released a joint statement letting fans know they are moving along as a "united family." 


"As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident," the trio said. "But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."
