in Society

Beyonce’s husband Jay Z was physically attacked by her sister Solange Knowles after the trio attended the Met Gala post-part together on Monday (May 5, 2014). The incident took place in the lift at the Standard Hotel and the reason for initial confrontation between the songstress and her brother in-law remains unknown. However, according to a source, the blazing row was actually sparked by the rapper, who told Solange to not let her friends drop his name to get into the star-studded soiree. The 27-year-old singer turned sullen and she demanded they left. On the way out, Jay Z said that was heading off to Rihanna's bash without Beyoncé, which set Solange into a rage. Once inside the lift, the fight began. 

Elevator surveillance footage showed the famous family walking into the lift together and Solange Knowles began shouting at Jay Z. She then threw punches and high-heeled kicks at the rapper before being held by her bodyguard, who was seen hitting the lift’s emergency stop button presumably to keep the incident private. However, he couldn’t prevent Solange from landing a last kick. The model even hit Jay Z with her purse. During the violent attack, the music mogul just put his hands up in defense. He was later seen grabbing her foot to block a kick but he didn’t try and hit back. Meanwhile, Beyonce just stood motionless amidst the chaos and didn’t get involved. At the end of the footage, the American singer and actress stepped in between the two.

Another video showed the individuals leaving the elevator. While Jay Z emerged from the hotel with a shocked appearance and Solange Knowles marched angrily ahead following the fight, Beyonce still put on a brave game face before departing with her sister in a waiting car. Jay Z was led to leave separately from the women.
