Shocking security footage from last week’s Met Gala.
TMZ has posted 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; it certainly looks like the trio, according to other photos from the night. We’re sure to be hearing more about this soon.
Update: Solange, Beyoncé and Jay Z have issued a statement to the AP about the incident:
“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.
The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”
