So, what is going on between Solange Knowles and her brother-in-law Jay Z? That is the question we are all wanting to know after TMZ released a surveillance video of Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator.
The incident happened last week at the Met Gala after party that was being held at the Standard Hotel in New York City. In the video you can see Jay Z and Solange enter the elevator peacefully. However, in a few short seconds you see Solange verbally and then physically attacking him.
A large man, said to be a bodyguard, stepped in to try and hold Solange back. However, despite his efforts, she was able to land three good swings, and even attempted to kick Jay Z, but he was able to stop it before it hit him.
Where was Beyoncé during all of this? Apparently, she was standing close by, but never got involved in the altercation. Upon exiting the elevator, Beyoncé and Solange entered one vehicle while a security guard escorted Jay Z to another.
So far, neither Solange or Jay Z have commented on their fight, and it is not known what triggered Solange’s attack. However, the hotel did issue a statement on Monday regarding the incident.
“We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.”
