Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange released a state of the family union address today regarding that little elevator fight, and everyone will be relieved to know that all is well in the Carter-Knowles kingdom.
It was just a little family spat, y’all. Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange Knowles broke their silence on that little elevator kung fu match after the Met Ball, and they want us to know it was nothing more than a little brotherly-sisterly spat.
The trio said in a statement that basically Jay Z and Solange were annoying each other all night and now they’re over it. Beyoncé and her halo remain, as ever, above the fray.
“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,” they said in an exclusive statement to The Associated Press 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.”
The sisters’ social media moves have been subject to intense scrutiny for the last several days, with every photo deleted or added said to be another clue in the puzzle of what happened to make Solange mad enough to try to kick Hova in the man jewels in that elevator. The last straw in the rumor mill to get the trio to issue a statement at all may have been the speculation that Bey was having her wedding ring tattoo lasered off.
It seems like this is just your run-of-the-mill family drama, and we’ll probably never know #WhatJayZSaidToSolange. At least we got some good memes out of it.
