Jay Z, Solange, and Beyonce have released an official statement addressing the elevator fiasco that took place at a Met Gala afterparty last week.
It had to happen at some point. The official statement from Jay Z, Beyonce, and Solange pertaining to the leaked security footage of Solange attacking Jay in an elevator has finally arrived. Unfortunately, almost no explanation has been provided, other than the family has "worked through" their issues.
They've definitely taken the "this is something all families go through" approach on this one, which means it's being kept private, and the world may never know exactly what happened in that elevator.
Read the full statement below.
As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it.
Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.
The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false. At the end of the day families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.
