Beyonce and Jay Z have issued a public statement regarding the apparent altercation between the rapper and Beyonce’s sister Solange.

Earlier this week, CCTV security footage leaked online showing Solange attacking Jay Z in a hotel elevator following the MET Gala in New York’s Standard Hotel.

The statement, released moments ago via the Associated Press, reads:

“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.”

Following the leak of the video on Monday, the Standard Hotel have also confirmed that the employee who shared the clip has now been terminated of his employment.

More on the story as and when we hear it.
