Beyonce has hinted she is standing by her sister following her attack on Jay Z.

The 'Drunk in Love' hitmaker shared no less than four snaps of herself and Solange Knowles, 29, in happier times in the space of half an hour on her Instagram account today (14.05.14).

This comes just 24 hours after it was reported her younger sister - who was caught on video attacking Beyonce's husband in an elevator at the Met Gala afterparty - had deleted all pictures of herself and Beyonce, bar one, from her own space on the social media website.

Among the reflective snaps, the singers are seen hugging onstage just last month at Coachella festival, when Beyonce surprised the crowd by joining Solange on stage during her performance.

The other pictures include the sisters smiling for the camera in a shot that appears to be from several years ago, and in another, Beyonce grins as she rests her head on her sibling's shoulder.

Footage emerged earlier this week of Solange throwing kicks and punches at Jay, 44, in an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York after attending a Met Gala after party on May 5. Beyonce, 32, is also present but remains passive throughout the altercation.

While all parties have remained silent on the incident, the singer's spree of pictures suggests she is eager to put the drama behind her and supports her sister.

The 'XO' crooner didn't caption her pictures but they have certainly sent tongues wagging, with fans offering their own opinions about her intentions for posting them.

One commented: ''Families have problems but you're family so you keep it the fact that they don't need to say anything lol (sic)''

Another person wrote: ''Her sister delete all her photos with B and now B put the pictures back ! Only one reason: B wants to make up! (sic)''

On Sunday (11.05.14), Beyonce also posted pictures of her and her husband - with whom she has two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy - smiling and enjoying themselves at a basketball game.
