New York, NY — Rapper Jay-Z was recently caught on tape being violently assaulted by his wife Beyonce’s sister Solange. The three were riding alone in an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City, when Solange apparently becomes angry at him and starts throwing wild punches and kicks. The entire attack is caught on the hotel’s surveillance video, which was obtained by TMZ.
No one knows yet what triggered the fight, but it appears that the bodyguard hit the emergency stop switch on the 12th floor to stop the elevator doors from opening – so no one would see the fight.
Afterwards, all three left the elevator and walked out of the building together. Sources say Solange was looking extremely angry, and that her and Beyonce got in one car. And Jay-Z was escorted by security to another car.
