Video Shows Solange Attacking Jay Z In An Elevator

By Michael Nelson / May 12, 2014

Last week, Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Beyoncé’s sister Solange Knowles attended the “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art. And today, TMZ released some video of the three artists getting into an ugly scrap at the Standard Hotel in NYC after the gala. The footage comes from the Standard’s elevator-security camera, and in it, you can see Solange yelling at Jay as they enter the elevator, then attacking him, pushing, kicking, and punching, before (and even while) being restrained by another member of the party. (Beyoncé mostly hangs back and stays out of it.) So what the hell happened? Watch the video below.

UPDATE: TMZ has now released this longer video of the attack:

After the fight, Beyoncé and Solange got in one car and Jay left in another.
