Beyonce, Jay Z, & Solange Release Joint Statement About Elevator Attack - Read Full Statement Here!

Beyonce, Jay Z, and Solange Knowles have released a statement explaining the situation that occurred where Jay Z was attacked by Solange.

“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 read (via AP). “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,” the statement continued. “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.”

See the video of Solange beating up on Jay Z after the 2014 Met Ball.

    well I don’t think is normal to beat each other in a family I think you do have a problem as a family and beside we all know that explanation is a lie.

    Never thought much about Solange but I’m really starting to dig her… She probably demanded this , because she knew JayZ’s people in the media had been spreading rumours that she’s crazy and a drunk and he’s Mr innocent .

    Classy statement and so true. I don’t know any family without issues and problems. Now everybody needs to move on.

    That was stupid. They would have been better off saying nothing at all.

    If that’s their statement they should have better not say anything at all. Nothing new here. Nobody will move on. This just makes it better. Expect this video to surf around social media for months and months….They are being way too correct when it’s obvious this family is broken and all about business. The real will come out. They just released this cos people were talking about how Jay was involved with that desgner chic…
    We all know they couldnt be FAKER. They will divorce after their tour is done and Solange will spill the deets once he’s out of the pic and Beyonce will have to deal with it. We know she’s still ghetto as F*ck.

    Laura Says:

    Can you imagine if it had been Jay Z attacking Solange? I think the statement would have been very different…

    Mia Says:

    What a weird f up family, they just so fake and that statement is silly ” they apologized and know they were both wrong ” …what are they five LOl.. So every is back on track in the Carter/ Knowles house .. Move along people nothing to see here.

    PennyT Says:

    Nobody has a right to demand any details. It’s not any of your business and the person who sold the video was fired.

    MimiB Says:

    My family, like most, have occasional petty disputes… but we don’t get into violent elevator fights.

    Naw… there was a lot more to this than a little dispute… but they’re drawing the wagons around and we’ll never really know what happened or what was behind this bit of trashy behavior.

    celestialacademician Says:

    Solange is not “ghetto”. You all are acting as if you have never been ” turnt up” or shall I say intensely passionate over something. They made this statement to cut down all of the speculation that is out there. If they didn’t respond this story would keep going on and on and on. Families fight. This is nothing new. Hopefully everybody (media and public) will move on because I am so tired of this story.

    Jordy Says:

    Families don’t beat each other like she did. And if they do they end up in jail. This is ridiculously stupid. She’s clearly irrational and crazy. Not to say jay z might not have done something bad but there’s no excuse. Like an above commenter said, if it was he who hit her then it would be utter chaos. As much as these people try to play off that they’re classy because of their wealth, this whole thing just proves they are complete trash.

    LOL Says:

    Again this is exactly what these egomaniacs wanted. This statement virtually says NOTHING..but they realized we are the same people who are welcomed at the White House and now they look 100% ghetto.

    JZ got slapped around on the Internet by some sister wife widow because he is still refusing to believe in what the bible says about plural marriage.

    They should have kept that to themselves. All they did was open it up for more scrutiny. Tiger Woods did the same thing when his mess started. Things did go spiraling until he released a statement/did a press conference. Tiger said something similar about this being a private family matter and then all hell broke loose. I hope this doesn’t happen to them because the money grubbers will come out for the right price.

    Sometime silence is best.

    @Laura: I couldn’t agree more!!

    Yes. Sometimes silence IS best. Especially that part saying that reports of Solange engaging in erratic behavior all night are FALSE? So, she became rabid without ANY warning whatsoever? Someone please fire the ding dong publicist? LOL :). They would have been MUCH better being quiet or acting like Jada Pinkett after her daughter’s bed Twitter… I can still see those unpretentious strong words when Jada quickly squished it by uttering personally st her first public chance those “taking care of business mommy words” of “okay, LOOK, here’s the deal…” as she was flying through the airport. These folks should have said, “LOOK, Jay was being a snot, and he caught Solange on the rag. Sorry, but while us ladies are good at keeping our ish together 99% of the time even when hormonal, there’s bound to be once in a lifetime where that perfect storm hits, and unfortunately for our family, the one time it did, we also became victim to someone selling our business to the tabloids. We are sorry to waste your time. Everything is fine now”…blah blah blah… People can RELATE to that. But this nonsense about she had NO erratic behavior makes Solange seem even crazier in my opinion. As for someone to go off like that without warning? Oh dear….are they throwing her under the bus again?

    I mean, to issue a press statement and not personally make a statement like Jada just solidifies in my mind their attitudes that they are elitist royalty. Someone please alert the major networks. The United Nation of Carter-Knowles is having a national security press conference. How dumb…
