'Hard Knock Life': Solange Knowles gets physical with Jay Z following Met Gala

Jay Z has 99 problems and apparently Solange Knowles is a major one. On Monday video footage has surfaced of a not so friendly altercation between a woman believed to be Beyonce's younger sister, Solange and a man who appears to be Jay Z in an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York, following the Met Gala last Monday (May 5) night. TMZ obtained the surveillance video which also shows a woman resembling Beyonce standing silent while the woman went buck wild on her husband.

In the video, a woman who appears to be Solange enters just before a man resembling Jay Z. Words seem to be exchanged before the woman immediately lunges at the man and starts hitting him. Another man appears and holds the woman back. Although the altercation appeared one-sided on a physical level, it is obvious something happened verbally that triggered the confrontation even though the footage contained no audio.

Reps for Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange have not offered a comment on what appeared to have happened last Monday night, but a representative for The Standard Hotel did release the following statement to HLN in regards to the alleged video, expressing their disappointment that the surveillance footage was released.

"We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity."

Although the faces in the footage are unclear, the clothing worn by those involved match what Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange were wearing at the Met Gala last week. Fans of all involved have been speculating and commenting on the physical confrontation on social media. Some found it amusing, but if the footage is that of Solange and Jay Z, it is obviously something that is not a laughing matter to the family. TMZ also reports that Beyonce was seen leaving with her sister while Jay Z took another car.
