As you know because no one, including us, can STFU about it. Solange beat Jay Z up in an elevator, as Beyoncéstood by and there have been all kinds of theories as to why. Jay Z was hitting on designer Rachel Ray, Solange is “crazy,” Solange is mad Jay wouldn’t sign her to Roc Nation and simply, they just always fight, are just a few of the fan fiction the internet has been writing about this juicy tidbit of nobody’s business. I am not going to pretend to be high and mighty, I was thirsty for gossip. But the Carters are too classy and in control of their image that they wouldn’t even give us a nugget to chew on. Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange have released a statement.
Without further delay we now present you the greatest swerve, dodge, pivot, get out the way of the spray of lethal bullets coming . . . in history.
“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,” an exclusive statement to The Associated Press read Thursday. “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,” the statement continued. “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.”
There you have it.
