Solange Knowles sort of speaks out on the infamous elevator scuffle

For the first time since that infamous elevator incident, Solange Knowles has directly — albeit briefly — addressed her ill-fated scuffle with Jay Z.

Beyoncé's sister appears on the cover of Lucky's August magazine where she — sort of — spoke with the magazine about the incident that took place after the Met Gala. Knowles addressed her fight with Jay Z as "that thing," and shortly discussed her feelings on the issue.

"What's important is that my family and I are all good," the 28-year-old performer said. "What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that."

The shared statement Knowles referred to was in the same tone as her explanation in the interview, not directly giving a reason for what actually set off the attack on her brother-in-law. The family simply said Knowles and Jay Z shared mutual blame for what had happened.

"They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public," the statement went on. "They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."

Meanwhile, a source told Us Weekly magazine that the cause of the fight "was over something so small and stupid."

The insider added that initially "Jay said something small to her along the lines of, 'you are out of line.' Solange was being a loudmouth and snapped at Jay trying to calm her down and get her out of there."

Apparently, this wasn't the first time Knowles got that way, the source said. Beyoncé and Jay Z just wanted to avoid a real "ruckus" and get the heck out before things got worse.
