The music industry’s royal family, the Knowles-Carters, just released an official statement in regards to the elevator fight between Jay Z and sister-in-law Solange. As expected, the family doesn’t reveal any information as to why the fight happened, but reassure us that everything is ok now: “At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different.” Well, we suppose it’s a little reassuring to know that even the Knowles-Carters are mere mortals like the rest of us.
Read the full statement below via the Associated Press.
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.
