The Standard Hotel release statement on Jay Z elevator attack

The Standard Hotel in New York has made a statement regarding the vicious attack on superstar Jay Z last Monday.

While there still has been no word from either Beyonce or Jay Z’s representatives, a spokesperson from The Standard Hotel in New York City has said: “We are shocked and disappointed in what had been a clear breach of our security system.

“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.”

Jay Z was viciously attacked by his wife Beyonce’s sister Solange as the trio left the Met Gala after party in New York last Monday.

The 27-year-old was caught on surveillance camera lashing out wildly at her brother-in-law with both her arms and her legs, while her sister stood beside them.

The famous family were leaving the after party of the Met Gala – one of fashions most infamous events.

TMZ obtained the CCTV footage showing Solange kicking and swinging violently at Jay Z, the father of her two-year-old niece, Blue Ivy, after the trio step into the elevator.

Solange was screaming at her family member when the fight erupted and can be seen in the footage mouthing what appears to be a diatribe at the hip hop legend, according to TMZ sources.

In the footage, a man who looks to be a bodyguard tries to hold Solange back but she manages to rain blows on the rapper several times, and even hits him with her purse.
