Closing Doors: Read the statement from Jay Z and Beyonce regarding the Solange elevator attack


By now we’re already well versed in the elevator attack that saw Solange take on Jay Z while Beyonce just chilled. It’s led to a lot of different conspiracy theories and media coverage, but for us, it’s caused us to listen to Solange’s “Losing You” pretty much on repeat since the whole thing surfaced earlier in the week.

Now, music’s Power Couple has released a statement, telling us all to move on and stop holding the “Door Open” button on this week’s biggest story. Our fingers hurt, too.

Here’s their statement, penned by Beyonce:


“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.”

Don’t worry Solange, we still got your back. As for Jay Z and Beyonce, their On The Run tour comes to Gillette Stadium on July 1.
