This week has been an eventful one. While we still speculate on the elevator incident with Jay Z, Solange, and Beyonce, an official statement was released to the Associated Press regarding the May 5th ordeal.

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.

Meanwhile, The Standard Hotel has confirmed that the person who leaked the footage of the elevator rift has been fired. Not without making a huge payday for himself though. He reportedly received up to $250,000 for selling the footage to TMZ.
