TMZ reports, with video, that Jay Z's sister-in-law Solange attacked him in the elevator of New York's Standard Hotel after the ritzy Met Gala last week:
A large man -- who appears to be a bodyguard -- attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay grabs her foot, but never attempts to strike her. Beyonce stands by without getting physically involved.
Jay Z and Beyoncé's joint summer tour is scheduled to kick off next month in Miami.
