Jay Z, Beyonce, Solange Release Statement Regarding Elevator Altercation

Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange's statement says that they have worked through the incident.

Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange has released a statement regarding a May 5 incident in which security footage showed Solange assaulting Jay Z in an elevator en route to a Met Gala after party, which was held at the Standard Hotel in New York, New York. 

"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 says, according to Complex. "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."

TMZ released a video of the altercation Monday (May 12). It is below.

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

    Not onlyy is Jay z an arrogant faggot, but hes also one of the ugliest mfs Ive ever seen in my life. Ill never understand why Beyonce would marry him, its not like she doesn't already make millions on her own.
    • Concerned Spectator
      I felt your claim that Jay-Z is "one of the ugliest mfs Ive ever seen in my life" is particularly noteworthy. Judging by your sentence structure I assume you are a somewhat educated person in your twenties or late teens. With that being said you must have seen hundreds if not thousands of "ugly mfs" in your young career. To certify Hov as one of the ugliest mfs is quite a bold statement indeed. You must have had to comparatively analyze every ugly mf you've had the misfortune of witnessing before settling on the Jigga Man as a top 5 candidate. There is gravity behind this claim. And to have this be the first thought to come to mind after reading about the Carter family and Ms. Solange "Tiger Paws" Knowles reconciling can only mean you had reached this conclusion quite some time ago. I applaud your resolve in proclaiming Jaz-O's brainchild as first round ugly mf draft pick.

    this bitch is crazy SOLANGE AND RICK ROSS FIGHTING IN ELEVATOR MOMENTS AFTER JAY-Z ALTERCATION http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pLdJspBLK0

    The fact that an absolutely irrelevant situation happening in an elevator became such a media craze is a sad and scary testimony of the American mind state right now. Why are we so fuckin' obsessed with people's private lives? Another thing that's sad is that on every media website talking about this, all you see is racist Hip-Hop detractors calling Jay-Z a monkey and a kniggur and this and that. Then you come to a Hip-Hop website, where we should be defending and sticking for our guy, and all you see on the Hip-Hop website is Jay-Z is a monkey and a kniggur and this and that. I'm not wit' that shit man. I still ride for the homies. I'm not part of this new generation that gets a kick out of watching people suffer and demeaning everybody, so they can feel better about their own lives. Fuck that.

    So jay why didnt you wife stop the fight instead of watching.
    • It's ALL Lack of Vital Energy
      *I think Beyonce did the best thing... Peace, love & grace
    • It's ALL love
      I think Be did the best by staying out of it. U can't take sides with family. Dude holding Solie back shouldn't have exited the elevator first tho. He was kinda dumb for that...and I know she's a lady but Be shouldn't have exited before Jay. Why leave the both of them on the elevator together? Bad maneuvering strategy!!!! Makes me wonder if they wanted Jay to "Chris Brown" the gurl... Lol
  • Jason
    Can't wait till this summer to go see the mr. And mrs Knowles World tour. Get there quickly because jay's manhood is the opening Act so that shit should be over quick. It's a sad day When no matter what jay says the next line out anyone's mouth Is shut up before I get solange to tap that ass again.

    Huh? So she hits Jay-Z but apologizes to Beyonce? WTF? ahahaha. I swear, these b!tches are crazy
  • OVO
    Solange should sign with OVO, it's a guaranteed way for her to finally pop off. Several news outlets reported that Solange has been angry with Jay, because he won't go in the studio and write with her and take the time to provide feedback on her music. With the Grammy award winning team of Drake, Boi 1da, 40 and T-Minus writing and producing her music, she would definitely have some hot records. Just ask Beyonce, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce, Schoolboy Q, Rick Ross, Jay-Z, A$AP Rocky, 2Chainz, Lil' Wayne, Nas, Tyga, Jaime Foxx, Sade, Trey Songz, Usher, Lloyd, Ludacris, Nikki Minaj, T.I., Talib Kweli, Joe Budden, Justin Bieber, Plies, Birdman, Ace Hood, The Weeknd, Wale, Ciara, Birdman, T-Pain, Melanie Fiona, Slaughterhouse, Cyhi The Prynce, Keyshia Cole, Roscoe Dash, Kelly Rowland, Young Jeezy, Red Cafe, Bun B, Stat Quo, Big Boi, Cassidy, Lloyd Banks, Keri Hilson, Big Sean, Nicole Scherzinger, The Game, Childish Gambino, Chip The Ripper, Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, Meek Mill, Lecrae, Kirko Bangz, French Montana, Mobb Deep, Mary J Blige, Timbaland, Diddy, YG.....AND COUNTLESS OTHERS who have had production from OVO's All-Star Team of producers or had features from Drake. OVO is hip-hop!!!!!!!!!!

    They praying on your downfall Jay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shits comedy!
  • jay23
    That is why they took so long to respond!!! It didn't matter anyway if they did say anything. People won't believe them anyway. They could have made a statement the same day it came out or today people make their own story up. I would have let you dumb F87k make your on theory up and lived my life. People don't care to hear a statement they prefer to make up shit.
