Jay & Bey Release Statement on Solange Elevator Attack

The firestorm of controversy surrounding the grainy black and white elevator video of Jay Z being attacked by Solange continues to engulf the news arena as people speculate on the reason Solange went H.A.M. Some say it was because he wanted to go to Rihanna’s party by himself. Others believe she accosted him over a personal tiff with fashion designer Rachel Roy, ex-wife to Jay’s former Rocafella business partner, Damon Dash. But no matter what anyone says, the only ones who know exactly what happened are Jay Z, Solange, and Beyoncé. And they ain’t talkin’…till now. 

Thursday, Jay and Bey released a statement regarding the much-publicized fracas of the week.

 “As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5, 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,” the couple said in a statement to The Associated Press.

“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.”

What? You thought they were going to reveal the inner workings of their family structure? For shame, dear reader. For shame.  Ever the master weavers of public opinion, the Jay Z/Beyoncé Syndicate will be more careful in the public eye in light of this security breach.  Perhaps more so than ever. But we get it. What happens in the family should always stay in the family. Time to move on.
