The recent elevator security footage of hip-hop’s royal couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé with sister Solange that’s been leaked to TMZ has taken the social media world by storm.
The footage shows Queen Bey’s sister Solange attacking HOV! She appears to be yelling at him first then throws fists and kicks him before the security guard is able to block her.
The incident happened after the Met ball in The Standard Hotel in NYC.
The internet has been blowing up with questions and reactions of the security footage. On twitter “#WhatJayZsaidToSolange” has been trending, Instagram and Facebook has been filled with Memes:
Even rapper 50 Cent posted (now removed) a Meme that was a picture of Jay-Z sitting next to Beyoncé sleeping with the caption “So you was sleeping when I was getting my ass kicked.”
Perhaps the oddest part of the footage is how passive Beyoncé reacts.
It’s almost as if she is taking an entirely different elevator ride. Beyoncé seems to move between them when Solange kicks Jay and he grabs ahold of her foot.
Is Beyoncé being passive because she is just trying to be classy and not make a scene? (She does have a pretty big image to uphold!) Beyoncé has had media training for years and she knows how to compose herself around the public eye.
The footage is shocking to most, the hip-hop power couple has managed to keep their names away from negative press at all times and the fact that it’s Bey’s very own sister attacking him raises many eyebrows!
Everyone is wondering what caused Solange’s blowout. Do you think Beyoncé reacted but when she was in private with just her sister? Or, could her passive reaction have anything to do with her agreeing with whatever words were exchanged in the elevator.
Solange could ultimately just be a protective sister and maybe HOV is responsible for saying or doing something wrong to her or her sister to cause the altercation.
We can’t wait to see if any of them will release a statement on the incident. For now the three have been ‘On The Run’ from the Media!
