But the couple did no such thing – just hours after TMZ released the clip, the husband-and-wife team attended a basketball match in New York.
With the world left wondering what happened after the Met Gala to cause such a heated exchange, the power couple were pictured courtside in New York on Monday evening, watching their beloved Brooklyn Nets take on Miami Heat.
The duo appeared unfazed by the release of the footage showing the altercation, which reportedly took place in the lift of NYC's trendy Standard Hotel.
Their faces wreathed in smiles, the pair looked relaxed and carefree as they watched the sporting action. As always, Beyoncé, 32, looked stylish in a denim jumpsuit and statement heels, while Jay chose a casual white T-shirt, jeans and a gold chain.

Just hours earlier, celebrity fans were shocked to see blurry footage which appeared to show Solange attacking the Glory hitmaker, real name Shawn Carter, while Beyoncé looked on.
After exiting the Standard Hotel hotel, the two sisters left together in one car, while the rapper left in another vehicle.
So far, there has been no comment from representatives of any of the parties involved.
