Earlier this week TMZ revealed video footage of what appeared to be Beyonce’s sister Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z in a hotel lift following the Met Gala in New York.
While there has been on-going speculation about what provoked the altercation, the trio have remained very tight lipped until now, having released a statement to the Associated Press commenting on the incident:
“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.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z are currently preparing for their joint ‘On The Run‘ tour, which kicks off in Miami on 25th June.
