Solange Knowles, Beyoncé and Jay Z have released a joint statement regarding the fight that is still making headlines.
“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 trio said said in a statement released to AP.
Solange Knowles has also followed in Beyoncé’s footsteps and let all of her fans know all is well between them. Just hours after Beyoncé posted a series of pictures of she and Solange on Instagram, Solange broke her silence on the social networking site as well. She posted her first pictures since the video of her attacking Jay Z went viral.
On top of that, E! News gave the scoop on what exactly happened. And it ‘s actually the most sensible explanation so far.
An insider broke down the series of events from the epic night after the Met Gala in NYC. Rachel Roy was apparently being a little too cozy with Jay Z. Interestingly enough, Rachel’s ex-husband is Damon Dash, the former business partner of Jay Z. The two were both owners of Rocawear until Damon sold his share to Jay Z. Jay Z is also the Godfather of Rachel and Damon’s daughter, Ava.
“At the gala, Rachel was being flirtatious with Jay/ Once everyone was at the Boom Boom Room for the after-party, her flirtations were elevated. “Beyoncé approached Rachel to let her know the behavior was disrespectful and she wanted her out of their lives for good. Solange came over to have her sister’s back, and things got heated with her and Rachel. Jay said some disrespectful things to Beyoncé and Solange as the confrontation was going down. That’s why all hell broke loose in the elevator and why Beyoncé just stood back and let Solange hit Jay.”
That not only explains why she was so mad but it also agrees with reports that Solange and Rachel got into a heated argument before her fight with Jay Z.
Footage of Solange giving Jay Z a pretty good beat down that lasted more than 3 minutes went viral earlier this week. A worker at The Standard Hotel leaked surveillance footage to TMZ. The employee has since been fired but reportedly received $250,000 for handing over the video. Bey, Jay ans Solange along with Beyoncé’s security guard were heading out of an after party at the hotel when Solange attacked Jay Z in an elevator.
