On Monday, TMZ published a shocking video of elevator security footage that showed Solange Knowles violently attacking Jay Z with Beyonce in a elevator car of The Standard Hotel following the Met Gala. The altercation quickly went viral leaving everyone to speculate what happened before the incident to provoke the singer.
There are several reports that Solange may have been partying a little too hard during the after party and got into an argument with a few of the guests, including designer Rachel Roy. Insiders report that once she got into the elevator with her sister and brother-in-law, an already tense Solange overacted to something the rapper said.
Meanwhile, The Standard Hotel—the location of the incident—immediately went on lockdown following the video leak in order to find out who shared the footage. “We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity,” the hotel said in a statement.
So how did Beyonce react to all of this? The singer was seen remaining extremely calm in the video, though it’s hard to know what she may or may have not said to her sister. But the day of the leak, the notoriously private singer and her husband attended a Nets game. The two looked cheery and relaxed as they normally do. The singer also updated her Instagram with a prayer—seemingly in reaction to the video leak. However, only insiders know what’s really going down inside the Beygency.
