Jay Z Attacked by Solange Knowles While Beyonce Looks On (VIDEO)

solange jay zWe've all had a family fight or two (or seven) and if you are someone who has never then congratulations! You win the non-emotional family award! One family that seems very in touch with their emotional side is sisters Beyonce and Solange Knowles. Sure, they seem cool and calm most of the time, but you can tell there is fire behind those eyes and Jay-Z did something the other night to bring that out.

In this shocking video, Solange is seen attacking her brother-in-law Jay Z after the Met Gala in NYC. The footage is from security video released to TMZ.










In case you aren't convinced this is Solange, Jay Z, and Beyonce, the outfits match up and it's clear that there is some kind of tension happening in the family from a photo just after the altercation.

I feel awful for them. I also feel bad watching it. It's such a private moment, and Solange is very, very upset to the point where she tries attacking Jay Z and their bodyguard is doing the best he can to hold her back. I applaud Jay Z for staying cool; and also Beyonce who seems to try to talk her sister down from being so upset. Some have suggested that maybe this is because Jay Z cheated on Bey but I cannot believe that to be so. Though I do think this is more than just maybe Solange being upset she isn't invited to the Kimye wedding. (I'm not sure if she is or isn't. Maybe Jay said she can't fly on their private jet to the nuptials?) I'm trying to make light here -- this is clearly serious, and something terrible must have happened for Solange to be this angry.

Maybe some words were spoken that upset Solange. Maybe Jay was trying to give her advice and she didn't want to hear it. There are so many things that could have happened ... and these things happen even over the smallest things. They add up, tempers flare. I hope they work it out.

What do you think about Solange attacking Jay Z? What do you suspect happened?

Kudos to J for restraining himself, domestic violence isn't a joke but once you repeatedly go after someone and throw kicks and punches you better be ready for them to come back at you. She's an idiot for trying to physically assault him. It's weird how it doesn't seem like Bey really tries to get between them. She does once then kinda shields J a little but if it were my sis I'd be between both of them so neither could get at the other easily.

Maybe Jay-Z abused Beyoncé? There are a billion reasons why this went down. This is proof that money can't buy class!


Damn, This video proves everybody life in Hollywood is not perfect. It's a reason why she went off the way she did it's none of my business personally but as a celebrity nothing is private anymore so they need to be a little more careful about how they address certain situations in a public place.

Solange has always come off as a bi*ch. so her trashy behavior doesn't surprise me. I don't really care what the fight was about.

Wow she is pissed! My bet is he did something to Beyonce and Solange's don't eff with my sister claws came out! I watched the extended version on tmz and if you watch closely he puts his left hand out to her and when she pushed it away is when he grabbed her wrists and it was on and popping from then on.

Their marriage is probably another publicity stunt... it's a match made in music industry heaven. I'm not a big fan of either but it's nice to see that they are real people just like everyone else. Funny though.... they are bffs with President Obama. Wonder what he has to say about this.... lol
