In the last few days we have all questioned what the hell actually happened between Jay Z, Beyonce, and Solange that made Solange go fist to cuffs on her brother-in-law. There were all types of rumors circulating in the media. They ranged from Jay Z going to attend a Rihanna after party without Beyonce to Jay Z dropping Solange from Roc Nation. There was even speculation that Solange had a drinking problem. While we don’t have the answer on what caused the “Showdown in the Elevator,” we do have an official statement that was released by Jay Z, Solange, and Beyonce:
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. 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. 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.
It is great to see that the family is moving forward and not looking back. Although, it would be great to know just what led Solange to whoop on Jay Z.
