Date: May 5 (night of the incident) and May 12 (video released)
Where: NYC Standard Hotel elevator
None of us have ever witnessed a scandal like this involving Beyoncé, The Most Perfect Celebrity in the world, so the Internet exploded when, a week after the 2014 Met Gala, TMZ released security footage of Solange, Beyoncé's little sister, attacking Jay Z in the elevator of the Standard Hotel. In the footage, Beyoncé stands to the side and does not intervene.
Theories about what really went down between Solange and her brother-in-law circulated rapidly on Twitter while Beyoncé attempted to silently shut down the rumors by posting photos of herself with her sister on Instagram.
There's gossip—and nothing more than gossip—that Jay has been cheating on Beyoncé with designer Rachel Roy, but honestly no one knows what happened here except for the individuals in that elevator.
