It looks like Jay-Z shouldn’t have spoken so soon on having just 99 problems…
Footage was released today of Jay-Z and sister-in-law Solange Knowles (yes, that makes her Beyonce’s sister) reportedly embroiled in an explosive altercation in a Standard Hotel elevator following last week’s Met Gala in New York – and surveillance video footage of the drama has now appeared online.
It is not known why angry Solange lashed out at her sister Beyonce’s husband, but the footage, obtained by TMZ.com, appears to show the singer punching and kicking the mogul as a bodyguard attempts to drag her away from him.
At one point in the grainy black and white video, Beyonce steps between her sister and her husband and appears to attempt to calm her sibling down.
Also noteable, halfway through the minute-long video, the minder presses the the emergency stop button, presumably to keep the fight private.
It’s well-known that Solange and Beyonce are very close, Bey having recently joined Solange onstage at Coachella.
Solange also has a personal and professional relationship with Jay Z – she is signed to his management company Roc Nation.
