Jay Z, his wife Beyoncé and her sister Solange are once again a “united family,” following an incident where Solange attacked the rapper in a hotel elevator, a scene that was caught by security camera and sold to TMZ.
“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,” the family said in a statement released to the Associated Press.
“But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it,” continued the statement. “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 event occurred at an after party for the Met Gala at the Standard Hotel in New York City. In the clip, Solange confronts Jay Z as Beyonce stands by without interfering. A bodyguard holds Solange back, and Jay Z does not swipe back at the singer.
A hotel employee sold the tape to TMZ for a reported $250,000, Page Six reports; the hotel has since fired the person who sold the video. The Standard said it would be pursuing all civil and criminal remedies in punishing the individual.
Jay Z, Beyoncé and Solange ended their statement by clearing up a rumor. “The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false,” it said. “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.”
