Beyonce, Jay Z and Solange Knowles have broken their silence and addressed the infamous video showing Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator after the Met Gala last week.

The trio issued a statement on Thursday.

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,” it reads.

The statement continues, “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,” adds the release. “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.”
