After various cryptic Instagrams failed to silence the masses clamoring for an explanation from the Carter/Knowles family on what exactly went down on the night of May 5, 2014, those involved have buckled to pressure and released a statement to the mother of all celebrity journalistic institutions, the Associated Press.
In the EXCLUSIVE statement (this is truly the AP's crowning glory), the family said:
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. 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.
Blue Ivy continues to remain silent on the matter.
