TMZ dropped a bomb earlier this morning (May 12) when the posted video footage of Solange Knowles throwing punches at Jay Z in an elevator at (or immediately after, it’s still unclear) the Met Gala on May 5. It triggered a wave of social media commentary, mostly centered on what could have triggered Solo’s outburst and Beyonce‘s stunned reaction.
Twitter detectives were on the case immediately and they dug up some interesting post-fight pics. Bey smiles through gritted teeth in one image, while Hov lurks in the background nursing his cheek. Interestingly, the “Drunk In Love” diva left the event with her sister and posted a curious prayer on Instagram a couple of days later asking God for guidance on her relationships. See those pics as well as The Hive‘s most (insensitive yet) hilarious tweets after the jump.
The trio leaves the elevator. Beyonce looks upset, while Jay Z grabs his cheek.
The superstar left the event with her sister.
Blood spotted on Bey’s bodyguard’s lip.
