Well, here’s an item we were never expecting to see. TMZ has just posted video which appears to show Solange attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator last week, as Beyonce stands by watching (crippled with shock, maybe?). This is completely bonkers. Oh, and it’s almost certainly really them: the incident apparently occurred at a Met Gala after party at the Standard Hotel in New York City, and you can see they’re wearing the outfits from the event.
In the security camera footage, Jay Z enters the elevator with Solange, and she immediately gets in his face. He appears to put his hand on her shoulder her to calm her, at which point the singer begins flailing and trying to punch Hov. A man pulls her off, and she attempts to kick Jay as they’re being separated. At this point Beyonce comes into the frame, and there’s a lull as Solange appears to be yelling, and then again tries to kick Jay, and he grabs hold of her foot, while Bey fixes her own dress or picks something up.
Obviously it’s unclear what happened before or after the incident, but watch the footage below, and then join us in wondering what in holy hell could’ve provoked this ugly scene at such a public event (and in such elegant threads!).
