A surveillance video has surfaced showing Solange Knowles, Beyonce’s sister violently attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z. Solange is seen in the footage, kicking and swinging violently at him inside an elevator.
The incident occurred after the annual star-studded Met Gala Ball. The group attended an after party at the Standard Hotel in NYC. The video was released by TMZ and it clearly shows, Solange, Beyonce, Jay Z and bodyguards enter the elevator. Immediately, Solange tears into snarls and screams directed at her brother-in-law then the brutal attack ensues.
For years it’s been rumored that Solange Knowles suffers from mental health issues. Last year she canceled her European music festival concert Tour, citing mental/physical health issues. She released a statement last year stating:
“I am completely devastated to announce that I will be canceling my international festival dates for the summer. I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was. Between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/ recording my new record, I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health. I need to provide some stability for my family.”
A bodyguard stepped in and tried to restrain Solange. Beyonce stood in front of her husband but then moved to the side and seemingly had no reaction to her sister’s behavior, as if it’s status quo. Jay Z didn’t seem stunned either.
The video is quite disturbing. Solange may not be Amanda Bynes but she needs a break. We hope Ms. Knowles gets the help she needs. Our prayers are with her.
