Rap mogul Jay Z and his wife’s sister Solange Knowles allegedly were caught in an explosive fight in a Standard Hotel elevator after the last week’s met Gala in New York.
Reportedly, surveillance video footage of the family drama has now appeared online. On the footage, obtained by TMZ.com, the singer is punching and kicking the hip-hop star and a bodyguard is trying to drag her away from him.
At one point, Beyoncé steps between the two and appears to calm her sister down. Only half way through the grainy black and white video, the minder presses the emergency stop button, probably to keep the fight in privacy.
According to TMZ, the three then exited the building. Beyoncé and Solange got into one vehicle, while Jay Z was escorted into another by security.
Solange Knowles has personal and professional relationship with the rapper, given that she is also signed to his management company Roc Nation.
A representative for Beyoncé refused to comment on the rumors, while spokespeople for Solange and Jay Z are yet to respond to The Independent’s request.
Now it has been reported that just a few days later, Beyoncé and her sister made a short getaway to Costa Rica, according to E!, where they joined their friend Kelly Rowland for her secret wedding.
UsWeekly reported that Kelly’s wedding was a “quick, simple ceremony – only around 30 people,” that took place on Friday, according to their source.
