Jay Z, Beyoncé & Solange Issue Statement on Elevator Incident: “We Have Moved Forward as a United Family”Posted by Andy B. under Interviews , Relationships and Family
Straight from the horse’s mouth: Jay Z, Beyoncé and Solange have addressed the fight that was seen around the world. In a statement issued to the Associated Press, Hov and Solange say they have apologized to each other for what happened in the elevator, and “have moved forward as a united family.” While they deny that Solange was intoxicated, what exactly sparked the altercation remains a mystery.
This comes after Jay Z and Solange were reportedly seen shopping together in NYC on Tuesday, which now sounds like one of the least implausible stories since the footage leaked on Monday. Jay Z and Beyoncé were also spotted in good spirits at the Brooklyn Nets playoff game on Monday night.

“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,” an exclusive statement to The Associated Press read Thursday. “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.”
