Solange, Beyonce, Instagram


They say sometimes actions speak louder than words.

Well, that may very well be the case when it comes to Solange Knowles' decision to delete virtually all photos of big sister Beyoncé from her Instagram account in the wake of a video that surfaced on Monday showing what appears to be Solange physically attacking brother-in-law Jay-Z in an elevator.

What's interesting, as the website SheKnows pointed out, is the fact that Solange did leave one pic up of herself happily posing with Beyoncé and a friend from 15 months ago with the caption "Girls moment."

Of course, whether that was intentional or simply an oversight remains unclear.

The fight in question was recorded May 5 at the Standard Hotel after the 2014 Met Gala in New York City. The footage shows a large man, presumably a bodyguard, restraining the aggravated woman. But the female (purportedly Solange), still manages to land a few punches and high-heeled kicks on a man in a tux.

The man under attack (who appears to be Jay Z) holds the woman's foot to prevent her from kicking him further, but at no point attemps to strike her back.

A woman resembling Beyoncé watches nearby.

Following the video leak, the Standard Hotel released a statement, vowing to take action for the security breach.

"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," the hotel said in a statement obtained by E! News. "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."
