Last week’s Met Gala was an evening of star-studded glitz and glamor for many of entertainment’s top stars, including Jay Z and Beyonce; at one point during the gala, the R&B singer dropped one of her rings, which her husband proceeded to pick up and slide back onto her hand in a mock proposal.
But while Jay Z was fairly smooth in that moment, not everything that night apparently went off without a hitch for the rapper. Security camera footage obtained by TMZ shows Hova being assaulted in an elevator — reportedly by his sister-in-law.
The video shows a grainy black-and-white image of Jay and multiple others in the elevator, with a woman purported to be Solange, Beyonce’s sister, standing nearby. After the group enters the elevator, the woman immediately goes up to the rapper and begins talking animatedly, getting in his face before beginning a barrage of blows with her fists and arms. She’s quickly restrained, though not before landing a few kicks as well.
Moments later, a woman who appears to be Beyonce enters the picture as well, but that doesn’t stop her sister from continuing the scuffle further, before being held back once more – though she continues to shout all the same.
