Is deleting an Instagram worth a thousand words?

After surveillance footage leaked that purportedly showed Solange Knowles kicking and punching Jay Z in an elevator as Beyoncé looked on, the R&B singer appears to have deleted all photos of her big sister from Instagram.

According to Jezebel, Solange, 27, went on an Instagram spring-cleaning spree, erasing any Beyoncé presence from her feed.

There clearly are a lot of pictures missing from Solange's account (see: here, here, and here), and the only snapshot of the two that survived is from 15 months ago.

On Monday, the comment section on this particular photo was flooded with remarks like, "You forgot to delete this," and "This is the only picture remaining of Beyonce. 'Like' if you did your own investigation."

As for an alleged tweet from Solange's account that was making the Internet rounds on Monday — "he tried the right one. I keep telling gall that n---a ain't bout that life. U hit my sis I hit u hoe. Talk what you know! y'all don't know s--t" — a rep for the singer confirmed it is fake.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé, 32, and Jay Z, 44, are putting on a united front.

The superstar couple sat courtside at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Monday night to watch the Miami Heat defeat the Brooklyn Nets 102-96. Knowing cameras were on them, the "Holy Grail" rapper and "XO" singer smiled and were affectionate, and appeared to brush off the earlier headline-making altercation.

Further proof it's business as usual for Mr. and Mrs. Carter? On Tuesday, Beyoncé and Jay Z announced new shows had been added to their On the Run tour this summer.

As for Beyoncé's Instagram game, the Grammy winner posted a cryptic message about relationships on May 6, one day after the alleged incident between her husband and sister:

According to reports, Jay Z was not the only person Solange got feisty with after the Met Gala on May 5.

Page Six claims that Solange also got into a heated argument with designer Rachel Roy at the afterparty at the Standard Hotel in NYC. Upon exiting the bash, Solange then appeared to attack Jay Z.

It's interesting to note that there is a history between Roy's ex-husband, Damon Dash, and Jay Z. They were close friends and business partners — Dash co-founded Roc-A-Fella — before the two had falling out.

Reps for Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Solange have yet to comment on the incident, and a reason for what prompted the attack is unknown.
