Beyoncé, family respond

Jay Z
Spelling

Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange say they are moving on since a video leaked this week of Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator.

“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 said 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 website TMZ posted the three-minute video Monday and said it was shot last week inside the Standard Hotel in New York City. The video appears to show Solange, Beyoncé’s sister, attacking Jay Z in Beyoncé’s presence. A security guard intervenes.

The hotel said Wednesday it had fired the person who recorded the video.
