Jay Z, Beyoncé and Solange seem very ready for the media to move on from talking about the incident that occurred last week in a hotel elevator in New York City. On Thursday, the family issued an “exclusive” statement to the Associated Press in an attempt to put this story to bed for good.
The full statement reads:
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.
They may have put the incident behind them, but there are likely those out there who won’t do the same until they know what caused the fight. But for everyone else, this should be enough to quell the fervor.
And in case you haven’t been watching CNN over the last few days, you can see the surveillance video below, via TMZ:
