Jay Z

Physically ATTACKED by Beyonce's Sister [VIDEO]

EXCLUSIVE

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.

You can take the thugs out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of thugs.

I think that it was something innocent. He was reading her, and that particular night, she wasn't in the mood for it. They're probably laughing about it now.

So much Speculation... Every Family has issues... Stop Judging & let it be... There is no such thing as perfect but to automatically ASSUME Jay is cheating, I'm not saying it's not possible but who's to say Beyonce didn't cheat... Everyone is capable of Mistakes... Jay did not lay a hand on the crazy chick other than to protect himself & Beyonce from the wild kicks... For all we know Solange got out of control drunk or something else & Jay was looking out for her, & she just lashed out... Jay & Beyonce have a lot of control of their life... I respect this couple... **Just my Opinion**

The way Beyonce just stood there is beyond bizarre. You can see she spoke for a moment, but other than that, she barely even raised her arms, even when her sister was kicking her husband. She just stood there like a zombie.

This female has it in her system to be physical with anger issues, instead of using verbal skills. I feel sorry for her child. No matter what set her off, people who fight physically have mental issues on some level and it is just wrong. No excuse. She should be charged with assault, but we know she won't be.
