article imageSolange Knowles reportedly assaults Jay Z In hotel elevator

Solange Knowles reportedly attacks brother-in-law Jay Z in elevator at the Standard Hotel on the night of the Met Gala in New York City.
While her older sister has always outshined her, Solange Knowles is in the spotlight this time. A controversial video leaked today that shows the 27-year-old singer allegedly assaulting rapper Jay Z.
The clip comes from an elevator at The Standard, an upscale hotel in the Meatpacking district of New York City. The scene involves four people: Beyonce, Solange, Jay Z, and a man that is reportedly a security guard. The video -- less than a minute in length -- begins with Beyonce already in the elevator and Solange and company entering.
Almost immediately the R&B star confronts her brother-in-law, and within a few seconds the first blows are thrown. The entire incident, or at least what can be seen in the video, only lasts a few seconds, but is notably violent. Jay Z does not fight back, though he does attempt to defend himself while his wife mostly sticks to her spot in the corner.
While the footage was leaked only today, the date of the incident (being reported as May 5th) can be determined by the clothes those involved are wearing. The video is black and white, but the patterns and styles of the clothes all match what the three superstars were wearing to the annual Met Gala, a charity event hosted by Vogue Magazine’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Reportedly the three were at the hotel attending an after party for the soiree.
There has been no word from representatives of anyone involved, and no police action has been taken as of this time.The Standard has also stated that it is looking into how the leak occurred.
