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.

I knew she was looking hella psycho on the red carpet, but I thought she was just upset that her dress was hideous.

Why is everyone mad at Solange? I am pretty sure she went off on him for a reason. Beyonce did nothing to stop it so that makes me believe there is a good reason she did not intervene. On top of that she spat on him and everything. No joke I think Jay has something going on with Solange or she saw him talking to another girl and she just went off on him. You see Beyonce turn to the side and look at Jay like saying "really????". Some deep ****!

Hmmmmm. Seems like something that might happen if he cheated on her sister. She's always seemed very protective of Beyonce. I can't imagine she would rage like that over something petty. Has to be big

This video is shaky & there's glare. So basically somebody used their cell phone to video it off a monitor. Plus they zoom in on the fight. So I'm guessing somebody who works at the place just made some extra TMZ money.

Jay Z probably said something really cruel to Solange, she wouldnt just attack him for no reason, that whole Roc Nation crew treats ppl like Sh!t if they dont look a certain way or have a certain "status" , Jay Z included. Beyonce looks like the fool she is just standing there, Roc Nation = devils

Looks like he grabbed her arm first, as she was just getting up in his face. That probably set her off. Not saying that it was right to attack him! But that is a trigger for some people. I am surprised Bey didn't do anything or really react at all. Makes you wonder if she sides with her sister!

They got on the elevator on the 18 floor... Then it goes to 12 and stays there. The door never opens. There's got to be more video! Come on TMZ... Stop teasing... Where's the rest?

Beyoncé condoned that which meant that Jay Z must've done something that both women disagreed with. Most likely cheated or got someone pregnant (which is rumored-some Russian model).

Hey black America, keep worshiping these fools. Keep giving them your full attention and idolize them. Nevermind that the world laughs at your "culture" and keep believing it's because they're racist and/or jealous. Your culture is nothing and this video shows more of the truth behind the illusion of the empty culture you worship.
