In every marriage there comes a point when you have to draw lines in the sand when it comes to your spouse and the in-laws. Most of us don’t happen to be part of the most famous couple in the country, however, so these things usually don’t end up on TMZ. No such luck for Jay Z and the Knowleses (Knowlesii?), as TMZ has obtained security camera footage of a physical altercation between the rapper and his sister-in-law Solange at a Met Gala after party.
According to our sources, it all went down at a Met Gala after party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC. In the video … Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange step into the elevator … and then Solange goes crazy, screaming at Jay before unleashing a violent attack.
A large man — who appears to be a bodyguard — attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay grabs her foot, but never attempts to strike her. Beyonce stands by without getting physically involved.
Thankfully for Jay Z’s eternal reputation, he doesn’t seem to have done anything but get hit here. Still, we’re #TeamSolange either way.
