NEW YORK (AFP) - A hip New York hotel said on Monday it's investigating how surveillance video of Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles attacking brother-in-law Jay-Z in an elevator wound up on an Internet gossip site.

The fuzzy, silent black-and-white video posted on TMZ.com shows Solange kicking and hitting Jay-Z at the Standard hotel, site of an after-party following the glamorous Met Gala in New York on May 5.

A bodyguard is seen trying to restrain the clearly agitated 27-year-old singer, whose 32-year-old megastar sister stood largely in the corner alongside her 44-year-old husband of six years.

The trio can be recognized by the outfits they wore earlier that night at the Metropolitan Museum fashion gala - Solange in a pink Phillip Lim dress, Beyonce in a sheer black Givenchy Haute Couture gown and Jay-Z in a white tuxedo jacket.
