The publication of the Instagram photos was Beyoncé’s first reference to her relationship with her younger relative since the family row, which happened in the lift of the Standard Hotel in New York City after the Met Gala.
The leaked footage showed Solange, Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z leaving a party when Solange verbally and physically attacked her brother-in-law. The rapper was seen fending off Solange, who was held back by a bodyguard, while Beyoncé stood by and hesitated to intervene.
