A surveillance video appears to show Jay Z being attacked by Beyonce’s sister, pop star Solange Knowles, in a hotel elevator after last week’s Met Gala in New York.

The Standard Hotel in New York issued a statement saying they were “shocked and disappointed” that the video was leaked to TMZ.

“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,” the hotel added.

The clip appears to show Jay Z being punched and kicked by Solange Knowles as a security guard intervenes. There is no audio.

    For this violent attack to happen @ the biggest event of the year in NYC, tells me that something is seriously wrong with Solange! I wonder what Anna Wintor thinks of this?

    I am so embarrassed for Solange & Beyonce, as this mess only seems to involve the 3 of them and not their father, Matthew.

    Jigga, whaaaaaaattt??? Queen B’s little sister is a feisty one. I wonder what set it/her off? According to the tape, she had A LOT to say to Mr. Carter…and Beyoncé just wanted out of there. Surprising that Beyoncé left with her sister..Jay-Z in a different car. Hmmmn

    hahaha The Standard is “disappointed” that someone managed to record playback of the security footage for a huge payday from TMZ. Good luck with that “prosecution”.

    Jay Z shows a lot of restraint here. Hats off to him.
