A simple elevator ride turned into a fist fight last week involving two of the biggest musicians on the planet.
Rapper Jay-Z and Beyoncé were riding on an elevator May 5 at a Met Gala after party in New York City along with Beyoncé’s sister, Solange Knowles when Knowles suddenly started kicking and punching Jay-Z.
TMZ shared security camera footage of the incident today.
Jay-Z did his best to fend off the blows and not counter-attack. Meanwhile, a man who appeared to be a bodyguard riding in the elevator with the group stepped in to help quell the fight.
Solange used more than just her hands and feet to lash out at her brother-in-law.
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.
