TMZ obtained surveillance video from the elevator of The Standard at an after-party for the Met Gala showing Beyonce’s sister Solange Knowles slapping the ever living shit out of Jay Z. The video shows Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange stepping into the elevator when all of a sudden Solange flips out and starts attacking and screaming at Jay Z.
A man who appears to be a bodyguard tries to grab her but Solange still manages to get a few shots and even a kick in. Beyonce just stands there like, “Not this again.” At no point did she ask someone to hold her weave which was a little disappointing.
It’s unclear what caused the outburst but you can see the bodyguard hitting the emergency stop on the elevator so no one could walk in on them. A good idea because it would have been awk-ward.
