Beyoncé, Jay-Z Release Statement Regarding Elevator Incident


Looks like I may need to eat my words  about the public not receiving any statements from Beyoncé or Jay-Z about the elevator footage seen round the world.

The continuous coverage of the incident, along with the wild speculation behind why it occurred, must have gotten back to the couple because Jay-Z and Beyoncé have released a statement to The Associated Press.

The couple told AP:

“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 rumors of Solange’s alleged intoxication and a possible incident between the singer and Rachel Roy:

“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.”

The statement comes not long after news of the person behind leaking the elevator security footage was detained.

Still no word from Solange or her reps.
