    Beyoncé and Solange Head to Costa Rica After Jay Z Elevator Fight—Was It to Attend Kelly Rowland's Wedding?!

    Solange Knowles, Beyonce, MET Gala Party Taylor Jewell

    Beyoncé and her younger sister Solange had a quick getaway over the weekend.

    Shortly after a violent video between Solange and Jay Z went public, E! News confirmed through immigration reports that the two siblings jetted to Costa Rica for a few days late last week on a private plane. According to the reports, Bey and Solange both entered the country on Thursday, May 8 at 7:56 p.m. and left at 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

    So what was behind the short-lived tropical vacation? It seems as though it may have been for pal Kelly Rowland's reported wedding!

    Kelly, Bey's mom, Tina Knowles, Rowland's fiancé, Tim Witherspoon, and Destiny's Child bandmember Michelle Williams were also in Costa Rica during the same few days, according to records first obtained by local paper La Nación.

    The ceremony is rumored to have taken place on Friday night, and while there are no photographs of the super-secret event, Beyoncé did post an Instagram snapshot on Saturday of herself looking like she was decked out in bridesmaid garb. She simply captioned the photo "GoodMorning."

    However, it looks like she made the trip without her hubby, who was not included in any of the immigration reports. And that may or may not have something to do with what went down last week.

    It was revealed today that there seems to be some drama between Bey, Jay and her sister after elevator surveillance footage, obtained by TMZ, shows what appears to be Solange throwing punches and high-heeled kicks at her brother-in-law in a violent scuffle after the Met Gala in New York City.

    The clip, reportedly recorded May 5 at the Standard Hotel, shows a larger man, presumably a bodyguard, restraining the aggravated woman. But said female (purportedly Solange) is feisty, and still manages to make contact with the gentleman in white a handful of times, despite attempts to hold her back. The man under attack (who appears to be Hov) holds the woman's foot in place to prevent her from kicking him, but at no point attempts to strike her back.

    While the trio have each stayed mum on the incident, Blue Ivy's mom posted a prayer on Instagram following the Met Gala asking God to bless her relationships, which may have been in response to the attack.

    Meanwhile, the Standard Hotel has released the following statement: "We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. 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."
