BET Awards 2014: Jay Z Blasts TMZ Over Solange Knowles Attack During 'Partition' Performance With Beyonce

Hova is still furious!

Jay Z is clearly still annoyed over the footage of him getting attacked by his sister-in-law Solange Knowles, as the rapper took the opportunity to diss TMZ for leaking the clip, during his performance alongside wife Beyonce at last night's 2014 BET Awards.

The power couple appeared during the Los Angeles ceremony via a pre-recorded clip of them performing 'Partition' on their 'On The Run' tour, with Jay Z kicking off the set with a short freestyle.

Perhaps aware that the performance would be shown to millions during the star-studded awards bash, the 44-year-old takes aim at the constant paparazzi presence surrounding the couple before name-dropping TMZ.

"Left the curtains open for the paparazzi, a little TMI for you TMZ," he rapped, before dropping another expletive-filled diss.

Of course, the hip-hop star is most likely hitting back at the publication for releasing the shocking CCTV footage of Solange launching a vicious attack on him in an elevator following a Met Ball after-party in May.

In the violent brawl, Jay Z did not retaliate as Solange continued to swipe at him and her older sister Beyonce stood by in the middle of the altercation, watching it happen.

Beyonce, 32, and her rapper husband weren't able to attend the awards ceremony as they have just kicked off their 22-date North American joint tour, which launched in Miami last week and has so far, seen another performance in Cincinnati.

Other stars who performed at last night's BET Awards included Chris Brown, Usher, Robin Thicke, Nicki Minaj and John Legend.
