Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange Address Elevator Fight in Statement
On Thursday (May 15), the trio issued a statement to The Associated Press about the altercation that had everyone speculating what caused such a violent incident to occur in the first place.
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," the statement said. "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 Carter Family also denied reports that Solange was intoxicated during the attack, which took place right after the trio attended the Met Gala.
"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."
Reps for the Standard Hotel announced on Wednesday (May 14) that they had fired the person who recorded the video, which was reportedly sold for $250,000.
