Jay Z's 100th problem, or perhaps just one of his existing 99, seems to be his sister-in-law Solange. The two were caught on surveillance footage from an elevator leaked to TMZ.com. Jay Z, Solange, and Beyoncé were all attending a Met Gala after-party at the Standard Hotel in NYC.
In the video, Beyoncé's sister is seen repeatedly punching and kicking the rapper until she's ultimately restrained by a bodyguard.
Naturally, this rare glimpse into Beyoncé's extremely private life has exploded all over the internet (like everything she does, from releasing a surprise album to temporarily becoming a vegan). Instantly, Twitter's top trending topics included 'Jay Z and Solange,' #WhatJayZSaidToSolange, as well as many wondering where Beyoncé was in this brawl and what caused it. The result was easily one of the most entertaining things to watch unfold.
