In the statement, both said the fight was their fault … but declined to explain why they fought in the first place. They also dismissed reports suggesting that Solange was ‘iintoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening.’
‘Families have problems and we’re no different,’ they said.
The full 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 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.
As ENTmania! earlier reported, the hotel employee responsible for leaking the surveillance footage of the fight to TMZ has been fired, and the sisters have since made up, as evidenced in their activities on Instagram Thursday.
