TMZ, the celebrity gossip, news and entertainment website got their hands on and released a surveillance video purportedly showing Solange Knowles kicking and swinging at Jay Z inside an elevator after last week’s Met Gala.
According to TMZ’s sources, the incident occurred at the Standard Hotel in New York City. In the video, Solange attempts to attack Jay Z but a man who appears to be a bodyguard restrains her; Beyoncé stands by but mostly avoids the physical confrontation. It is unclear what prompted the attack.
Watch the video below, and see for yourself. The “kind” folks over at Twitter even made up a whole new hash tag just for this even #WhatJayZSaidToSolange.
A representative for The Standard Hotel has also released a statement about the incident saying: We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.
These are some of the tweets going round.
