Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Solange Issue Joint Statement

Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Solange have issued a joint statement regarding the heated elevator fight between Solange and Jay-Z that occurred on the night of the 2014 Met Gala. The statement reads, “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 reason for the fight has also been revealed. It turns out that Jay-Z may have gotten a little too close with designer Rachel Roy who is the ex-wife of Jay’s business partner Diamond Dash. Reportedly Rachel Roy was being flirtatious with Jay at the gala and her flirtations only increased when they all got to the after-party. According to reports, Beyoncé approached Roy to let her know that her behavior was disrespectful and then Solange joined the two which is where things got heated between Rachel and Solange. Additionally, Jay said some disrespectful things to Beyoncé and Solange as the confrontation was going down which is what caused the fight in the elevator.
