Beyonce, Solange, and Jay Z have finally broken their silence over last week’s bizarre elevator attack, releasing a statement to the AP this afternoon, claiming the trio has moved forward.

“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,” the statement reads. “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 statement claims Solange was in no way intoxicated at the time of the attack.

“The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false,” it reads. 

As yet it’s not clear who specifically (or whose people) the statement comes from, but it seems all three are standing united against the rumors of familial discord, declaring, “We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.”
