Jay Z, Solange and Beyonce Knowles released a joint statement moments ago addressing the elevator fight video, saying both sides are to blame for the violence that unfolded:

“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.”

The video below courtesy of TMZ was three-minutes in length and we posted it on Monday. The trio were at the Standard Hotel in New York City. The video appears to show Solange, Beyonce’s sister, attacking Jay Z in Beyonce’s presence. Their bodyguard Julius, intervenes and holds Solange back. They were leaving the Met Gala. There is no audio.

The statement doesn’t explain what caused the fight, but Jay Z and Solange say they have worked through it. That reason will have to remain an unsolved mystery. What are your thoughts? Post your comments below.
