Hotel Releases Statement on Video Showing Solange Knowles' Attack on Jay-Z

The surveillance video capturing going berserk at her brother-in-law quickly became viral. Standard Hotel in New York's Meatpacking District, which housed the event the stars attended, promised that they would investigate the person behind the video leak.

"We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity," the hotel said in a statement on Monday, May 12. They made no mention of Jay-Z, Solange or .

The security video showed two women, presumably Solange and her sister Beyonce, entering the elevator with two men, presumably Jay-Z and a bodyguard. As soon as the door closed, Solange confronted Jay-Z and lunged her hands and feet at him. The bodyguard held her back by the waist but that did not stop her from throwing more punches and kicks. She also attempted to smack the rapper with her purse, spilling the content to the elevator's floor.

During the three-and-a-half-minute video without audio, Beyonce did not meddle in the fight and was not physically injured. TMZ, which posted the video said she left the place with Solange while Jay-Z was ushered to a different car. The clothes they were wearing indicated that they were attending Met Gala benefit on May 5 evening.

The leak of the video is considered a breach of security and guest confidentiality.
