The Urban Daily reported on Thursday May 15, what is said to be an exclusive response to the May 5th elevator fight which took place at the Standard Hotel, between Jay Z and sister-in-law Solange Knowles.
“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,” an exclusive statement to The Associated Press read Thursday.
“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.”
Although there are several stories floating around the internet that claim to know the reason that Solange went off on Jay in the elevator during an after party for the Met Gala, no one truly has the full story except for those individuals who were involved.
Accusations including friends of Solange attempting to gain entry into the party by using Jay Z's name is among several stories by unnamed sources, that claim this is what set off the brawl. Other stories claim Jay Z wanted to attend a Rihanna after party but Solange was completely against it.
A story released today by EUR reports that it all had to do with fashion designer Rachel Roy, ex wife to former business partner of Jay Z, Dame Dash.
EUR reports 'It looks like Rachel Roy is becoming the frontrunner in reports of what exactly caused Beyonce’s sister Solange to attack Jay Z in the elevator after the Met Ball, while Bey just stood and watched."
Reports state at the gala, Rachel was being flirtatious with Jay,” a source exclusively tells E! News. “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,” the source goes on. “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.
Which story is the truth? We'll probably never know and because we may never know the suggestion from the camp is a great one, "We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."
