Beyoncé and Jay Z were pictured enjoying a basketball game in New York last night, just hours after it was alleged that Beyoncé's sister became embroiled in a fight with Jay Z after the Met Ball.

The superstar couple looked relaxed and happy as they took in the Brooklyn Nets versus Miami Heat game at the Barclay Centre on Monday night (12 May).

A sign that everything is okay now in the Knowles-Z household?

Bey and Jay hit the headlines last night when American website TMZ posted video footage which it claims was taken in an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York after the glamorous Met Ball last weekend.

In the footage, a woman can be seen physically attacking a man, who remains relatively still and does not retaliate. At one stage she is restrained by another individual, believed to be a bodyguard. It's also claimed the bodyguard hits the emergency stop button on the lift.

The website claims that the agitated woman in question is Solange, while the man she is trying to attack is Jay Z. It also claims a third person visible in the video is Beyoncé, who is not involved in the alleged altercation.

There is no word on what may have sparked the apparent scuffle.

So far, reps for Beyoncé and Jay Z have yet to comment on the footage – or whether it truly is the superstar couple and Solange.

A rep for Beyoncé would only offer "no comment" when approached by BBC.

Earlier in the evening, all three had been seen on the red carpet at the star-studded Met Ball 2014.

Meanwhile, the hotel where the footage was filmed has said it is "shocked and disappointed" at their security system and the guests' confidentiality was compromised - although it did not identify the guests in the footage.

A statement read: "We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline the individuals involved to our fullest capacity."

Reveal has contacted the parties' reps for comment.
