Wow! Beyoncé Knowles, her husband Jay Z and her sister Solange Knowles have just released an official joint statement regarding the elevator assault video that was released earlier this week showing Solange physically attacking Jay on the night of the Met Ball gala last week. The usually private family never comments publicly on tabloid rumors and scandal but, for some reason, feel compelled to issue a statement regarding this particular incident. The statement makes clear that both Solange and Jay Z assume equal responsibility for the incident. Click below to read the Knowles-Carter statement in full.
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.
This is unprecedented. I never thought that B-Jay nor Solange would ever comment publicly about this matter. With all the silent public messages they’ve been sharing on social media, I figured loving family photos were all we were going to get where a statement is concerned. Clearly, the Knowles-Carter family wants to take as much control of the situation as possible in an attempt to put the matter to rest. B-Jay and Solange have spoken. Are you satisfied?
