Jay Z

Physically ATTACKED by Beyonce's Sister [VIDEO]

5/12/2014 8:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Z Attacked By Solange Knowles
Jay Z was ferociously assaulted by Beyonce's sister Solange  ... who was wildly kicking and swinging at him inside an elevator ... and the attack was captured on surveillance video ... obtained by TMZ.

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. 

And this is interesting.  When you look closely, you see the bodyguard hit the emergency stop switch on the 12th floor -- mid fight -- presumably to keep the fight private.

At one point, Solange smacks Jay with her purse ... spilling the contents all over the floor of the elevator.

Eventually the group exits the elevator ... but not before Solange takes a few last shots.

All three walked out of the building together -- Solange looks pissed -- but while Bey and Solange get in one car ... security walks Jay to a different one.

It's unclear what triggered the fight.

The answer is very simple. Solange is pissed that Jay Z said she looks like a deranged pumpkin in her dress! LOL! Next time Solange -- don't ask! :-)

This story is going to be HUGE. There is so much behind what we are seeing here. This family is notoriously private militant minded about not having the public know their "secrets".... which leads me to believe they have many.

1. He cheated
2. He did drugs in front of the child
3. Beyonce is standing there looking at him as if he is Hitler while his sister does this.

One thing for certain Jay Z is not a man. To have your bodyguard hold another woman down while you are kicking and slapping her is not something a man does. 20 seconds in this woman is being held and restrained while Jay Z is slapping and kicking her.

Either Jay Z is cheating and that is why Solange would attack so brutally her sisters husband... or Solange is facing her own demons and is a handful to be around. Either way, I can't believe the world is seeing the truth behind this family.

She was provoked. He deserved it. I don't condone violence. He got what was coming to him. For G-d sake! Solange was abused at the hands of her gay boyfriend . Who gave her a pitchah putfekt lyfe & refused to have sex with her. But still end up pregnant& miscarried. Ah sh!t ! This is Solange not Porsha. They look a like. Prutzah !

Jay Z probably cheated on Beyonce. With who I have no idea. Who even would?

Beyoncé didn't get involved because she's pregnant, best believe she could whoop Solange's a$$ if she wanted to
