We’re not sure WHAT exactly happened, but it was enough to send Beyonce’s sister Solange on FLIP MODE. In the surveillance video below, obtained by TMZ, Solange ferociously assaults her brother-in-law Jay-Z… wildly kicking and swinging at him inside an elevator during a MET Gala after party.
According to our sources, it all went down at a Met Gala after party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC. In the video … Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange step into the elevator … and then Solange goes crazy, screaming at Jay before unleashing a violent attack.
A large man — who appears to be a bodyguard — attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay grabs her foot, but never attempts to strike her. Beyonce stands by without getting physically involved.
It’s unclear what triggered the fight.
And this is interesting. When you look closely, you see the bodyguard hit the emergency stop switch on the 12th floor — mid fight — presumably to keep the fight private.
Representatives for Beyonce, Jay Z or Solange have yet to make a comment on the video.
