Rucuss staffMay 12, 2014
Solange was so upset with Jay Z after a Met Gala after party that she attacked her brother-in-law inside an elevator at the Standard Hotel in NYC.
TMZ obtained surveillance footage from the incident. It begins with Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Solange walking into the elevator. Solange can be seen screaming at Jay before physically hitting , kicking and spitting on him.
A bodyguard attempts to hold her back, but she manages to land a kick before Jay grabs her foot. Meanwhile, Beyoncé stands back and does nothing for a few minutes. The Drunk In Love singer finally gets in the middle of them to block the fight.
Beyonce’s bodyguard Julius can be seen hitting the emergency switch on the 12th floor to stop the elevator from opening. It’s unclear what triggered the fight.
The Standard Hotel issued a statement saying it is “shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system.” The photo below was taken minutes after the incident.
Beyonce posted a message about relationship on Instagram two days after the fight.
