A video has surfaced of Solange Knowles attacking Jay-Z in the Standard Hotel’s elevator. The altercation took place on May 5 in New York City after the Met Gala.
The video shows Solange trying to punch and kick Jay-Z in the elevator, while Beyoncé stands off to the side. The security guard attempts to hold Solange back and buys some time to gain control of the situation by pushing the emergency stop button. Beyoncé doesn’t get involved until about thirty seconds into the video when she seems to say something to her sister and then places herself between Jay-Z and Solange.
It’s difficult to tell what caused the conflict because the surveillance video has no sound. However, HollywoodLife.com has an exclusive source that claims Solange was sticking up for Beyoncé. Read what else the insider had to say here, and watch the elevator footage that TMZ released below.
