Jay Z, Solange & Beyoncé issue statement on elevator incident
Jay Z, Beyoncé and Solange finally broke their silence about leaked footage that shows Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator on May 5.
In an exclusive statement to the Associated Press on Thursday, the trio said “families have problems and we’re no different.” The stars also have claimed to have worked through their differences and moved on since the video emerged this week.
“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 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.”
The hotel said Wednesday it had fired the person who recorded the video.
Beyonce and Jay Z, who were married in 2008, will kick off their co-headlining “On the Run Tour” on June 25 in Miami.
