Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange Knowles speak out over elevator video: 'We have moved forward as a united family'

Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange Knowles have broken their silence over a shocking video that was leaked this week, which reportedly showed Solange fighting with Jay in an elevator.

The famous family says they have made peace over the incident and are now just trying to move on.

In an exclusive statement released to AP, the three jointly state: "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."

Celebrity watchers were shocked to see a video reportedly showing Jay Z being attacked by his sister-in-law after they attended a Met Ball after party, which was being held at the Standard Hotel.

Rumours over the incident ran rampant for the next few days, which were only fuelled by cryptic messages on Beyoncé and Solange's Instagram accounts.

"The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behaviour throughout that evening are simply false," the statement continued. "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."

The Standard Hotel has confirmed that it has identified and fired the employee who leaked the security camera clip, who reportedly sold the footage to TMZ for $250,000.
