Hotel management launches investigation into leaked tape of the wild elevator brawl making headlines around the world!
At the Met Gala after-party Jay-Z was viciously attacked by his wife Beyonce’s sister Solange who viciously kicked at him wildly and was swinging away.
In surveillance video that has been leaked from the Standard Hotel in Manhattan’s famed meatpacking district Jay-Z, Beyonce and Solange enter the hotel seemingly all chill when Solange suddenly erupts - screaming, and lashing her legs wildly and flailing with her fists.
A man who appears to be a bodyguard is seen attempting to hold Solange back, but she still clocks Jay a number of times, and then attempts to take out the 99 Problems singer’s moneymaker – by landing a haymaker in his crotch with her heels.
Jay is seen in the tape trying to deflect an obviously enraged and at one point grabs her foot, but never attempts to hit her back. A concerned-looking Beyoncé appears to be pleading with her sister to calm down, but keeps out of the physical actions.
It is not clear what precipitated the wild melee.
But pictures earlier in the evening showed a sullen Solange leaving the event with Jay-Z and Beyoncé prior to her elevator explosion.
The Standard Hotel told The New York Post that they are launching an investigation into how the tape was released – vowing to prosecute the perpetrator to the full extent of the law.
Hotel management said: “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.”
