Here’s some surveillance footage of Jay, Bey, her sister Solange and a bodyguard getting on an elevator at the Met Gala in NYC last week. Seconds after the doors close, Solange lunges at Jay and connects with a couple of swings. The bodyguard grabs her and words are exchanged, then she kicks him from across the elevator. The whole time Bey just stands there watching. What the hell was that about? If only this had audio!
UPDATED with an extended version of the video below which includes extra blows from Solange.
UPDATED: The Standard Hotel, where the scuffle took place, issued the following statement to The Grio:
“We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. 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.”
