Family Affair: Jay Z, Solange & Beyoncé Finally Address The Attack Video

The family that prays together, stays together! Thankfully, it seems that the Knowles-Carter family have worked through their issues and are moving on since the May 5th incident in which Solange was caught on tape attacking her brother-in-law Jay-Z. Ever since the video was leaked this week, the media (mainstream & social) have had an absolute field day with this story. However, in this exclusive statement released to the Associated Press this afternoon, the family has finally addressed the issue in an effort to lay this incident to rest.

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.
