Earlier in the week it was reported, last week, following the Met Gala after party at the Standard Hotel in NYC, Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange, Beyonce’s sister, all got into the elevator together and Solange proceeded to go bat shit crazy and physically assaulted Jay, and the whole incident was caught on tape. Now, Jay, Beyonce and Solange have issued a statement on the incident.
In a statement issued to the AP, Jay, Bey and Solange ask everyone to put Solange’s elevator attack on Hov behind them and just let it go.
The 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.”

To add, yesterday, the hotel where the assault went down said it had fired the person who leaked the video.
