Jay Z was attacked by his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles, in an elevator upon leaving a Met Gala afterparty last week. In the shocking video from TMZ, you can see Solange punching and kicking the rapper before being restrained by a bodyguard — Beyoncé appears to stand by without reaction before attempting to come between her husband and sister, ultimately letting Solange continue to scream and kick Jay Z before the footage ends. As the three stars left the bash, Beyoncé smiled for cameras while getting into a car with her sister, as Jay Z was directed into a different vehicle; and quite cryptically, Beyoncé posted a photo to Instagram days after the incident, a prayer asking for "discernment and strength to separate myself from anyone who is not a good influence."
Just a few weeks ago, the trio looked as happy as ever while hanging out at Coachella, and Beyoncé even joined her sister on stage during her performance. We have yet to find out what could have possibly sparked the incident between Solange and Jay Z, but it doesn't look like things are too chilly between him and Beyoncé, who sat courtside together — along with Jake Gyllenhaal — for a Brooklyn Nets game on Saturday. While we wait for more details to emerge about the meltdown, you can watch the controversial security footage below.
