Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange Knowles have finally commented on the now infamous fight that occurred between the rapper and Solange inside an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City after the Met Gala last week. While it doesn't provide us with the answers we really wanted, it does sound like they're moving past the bizarre altercation.
The trio said in a statement:
- "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."
Earlier today a rep for the Standard Hotel confirmed that the employee who leaked the video has been fired, and up until this afternoon, both Beyonce and Solange have been keeping us guessing with cryptic social media posts.
First Solange deleted a handful of Instagram photos with her older sister, and though Bey posted a seemingly negative message two days after the incident occurred, this week she uploaded a series of throwback pictures of the two. This morning Solange Instagrammed an adorable throwback photo of herself with Beyonce, so it does appear as though the ladies have patched things up.
But what triggered this? And has Solange been kicked off Jay's Roc Nation label?
