Speculation has run the gamut from Solange being bi-polar to Jay-Z cheating with his ex-business partner’s wife, but whatever the case we now know what the Carter-Knowles family has to say the situation now that they’ve issued a statement.
According to CNN, Solange Knowles, Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce, have collectively released a statement about the infamous surveillance video showing Solange, hitting and kicking her sister’s husband in the elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York City following the Met Gala held on May 5.
The trio has been hush hush regarding the incident and had not previously spoken publicly about it but the family issued a statement to the Associated Press, stating:
“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.
They also addressed speculation that Solange was high or experiencing some sort of psychotic episode…
“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.”
