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,” the statement continued. “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.”
Fighting within a family is stressful enough. So, to have a feud of this magnitude not only shared with the world, but to have to deal with the stress of having that fight mocked and speculated upon daily is unthinkable to me. I couldn’t even imagine living under such scrutiny. Hopefully, they truly are healing from this, because at the end of the day they’re still a family that has shared a very devastating experience.
