Jay Z was attacked by Beyonce’s sister Solange in a hotel elevator after last week’s Met Gala, according to TMZ. The website obtained video footage of Solange wildly kicking and swinging at him following a gala after party last week at the Standard Hotel in New York.
I wonder if they have upgrades at the Standard Hotel …
Anyway, the video supposedly shows Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange stepping into the elevator, before Solange starts screaming at Jay Z and then unleashing some violence.
A large man — who may have been a bodyguard — attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least three times.
What kind of bodyguard can’t stop a grown man’s sister-in-law from beating him up?
At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay Z grabs her foot, but he never attempts to fight back. Beyonce stood by and didn’t get physically involved.
It’s unclear what triggered the fight.
TMZ said at one point the bodyguard hit the emergency stop switch on the 12th floor, presumably to keep things private.
All three walked out of the building together. Solange — who didn’t look happy — gets in one car with Beyonce while security walks Jay Z to a different one.
Lord help the mister who comes between Beyonce and her sister .
