Jay Z, Beyonce, and her sister Solange were at the Standard Hotel in NYC last week for a Met Gala after party, when Beyonce’s sister brutally attacked Jay Z in the hotels elevator and it was all captured on surveillance.
According to reports, the altercation happened at an after party for the Met Gala event.
“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.” (TMZ)
In the video someone seems to try and hold Solange back, but she wasn’t having it and punched and kicked Jay numerous times.
“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.” (TMZ)
