A surveillance video has surfaced showing Beyonce’s younger sister attacking her brother-in-law, although it’s unclear what caused the altercation.
It’s a showdown with the in-laws.
Jay Z and sister-in-law Solange Knowles had an altercation at a Met Gala after-party May 5 that was caught on tape, obtained by TMZ.com.
It all went down in an elevator where the 27-year-old sister of Beyonce can be seen clawing and kicking at her brother-in-law as the “Halo” singer looks on.
It’s unclear what caused the argument as there is no sound on the black and white surveillance video, shot after the group attended a soiree at the Boom Boom Room at New York’s Standard Hotel.
Solange Knowles (front) appeared upset after exiting the elevator where the altercation with Jay Z occurred as Beyonce looked on. The rapper is seen holding the side of his face as he walks on.
“Solange flipped out over something Jay had said, that she took the wrong way,” a source told Us Weekly. “She took it too hard or too far. Not sure what is was, but she greatly overreacted.”
A source tells the Daily News Solange’s demeanor appeared dramatically different just hours before when she attended the Met Gala. She was seen smiling at the fete and being in high spirit.
It is unclear what caused the argument between Jay Z — shown in white and rubbing his jaw — and Solange Knowles that had Beyonce’s little sister so upset that she kicked, clawed and punched her brother-in-law.

However at the after-party, as the group walked into the elevator where Beyonce already stood, Solange appeared to immediately begin screaming and pointing in the “Holy Grail” rapper’s face.
While it seems he had some words of his own, when Solange began attacking him, Jay Z looked like he was trying to hold her arms down as another unknown man, presumably a bodyguard, held her back.
It appears the bodyguard attempted to keep the altercation private by pressing the emergency stop button on the 12th floor repeatedly.
Beyonce, Jay-Z and Solange Knowles were seen leaving the Met Gala After Party at the Boom Boom Room in the Meatpacking District.
Beyonce initially remained calm and leaned against the elevator wall. She finally appeared to say something to Solange after she broke free and approached Jay Z again, kicking and punching.
At one point Solange smacked Jay Z with her purse as its contents flew out spilling all over the floor of the elevator. The “99 Problems” rapper eventually leaned down and picked up the purse handing it to his wife.
But that didn’t stop Solange as she continued attacking him.

She then walked ahead of the couple as they exited the elevator and did not look happy as the bodyguard handed over her purse. Jay Z strolled behind his wife, who surprisingly seemed to be smiling.
A different video shows that as the group approached the same car to leave, Solange got in first as Jay Z stepped aside to allow is wife to get in. He then proceeded to another vehicle and left separately.
