Jay Z ferociously attacked by Beyonce’s sister
Nairobians have contributed to the worldwide trend of #WhatJayZSaidToSolange, adding humour to the drama that saw Beyonce’s sister, Solange, attack rapper Jay Z in an elevator.
According to celebrity gossip website TMZ, Jay Z was last week “ferociously assaulted by Beyonce’s sister Solange … who was wildly kicking and swinging at him inside an elevator … and the attack was captured on surveillance video.”
Brian Mbunde tweeted, ‘Beyonce just stood there watching like…#WhatJayZSaidToSolange’
Philip Mwaniki tweeted, “If Jay had even shoved her once, he would be looking at 10 years. Lol! Dude was calm like he knew the cameras were on!’
In the video published online by TMZ, Solange is seen attacking her sister’s husband while Beyonce watches.
The three are said to have been attending the Met ball after-party at a New York hotel.
The three and a half minute video begins with a woman, apparently Beyoncé, entering the elevator, followed by her sister, her husband and a large second man, who appears to be a bodyguard.
Solange starts talking to Jay Z and although the video does not have audio she seems to be talking harshly as she points at him.
At some point she begins hitting him as the bodyguard gets hold of her. She continues talking to Jay Z and at some point even kicks him as he and Beyonce hold her leg.
The New York hotel in whose elevators the attack happened has since distanced itself from the footage saying it breached their customers’ privacy as their security systems do not allow for camera footage to be leaked to the public.
