UPDATE: Our own DJ Heat was on TMZ Live discussing the event, asking what exactly JAY Z said to Solange to tip her off.

ORIGINAL: Not everyone likes their in-laws.  TMZ obtained surveillance video from a hotel that shows JAY Z, Beyoncé and Solange Knowles getting in an elevator just seconds before little sister Knowles lets HOV have it.

It all happened at a Met Gala after party at the Standard Hotel in New York.  In the video, the three stars and a bodyguard board the elevator and as the doors closed, Solange unleashed her fury on the rapper.  She’s seen kicking and trying to attack JAY Z before being held back by a bodyguard.

At one point, JAY Z grabs Solange’s leg to keep her from hitting him but he doesn’t fight back.  Throughout the video, Beyoncé did not get physically involved and kept to herself.

No one knows the reasoning behind her outburst but evidence from the video shows she was screaming at him through the minute-long clip.

The three were spotted leaving the hotel after the fight and JAY Z was taken to a separate car leaving Beyoncé and Solange to hitch a ride together.
