Solange and Jay-Z issue a statement about the elevator brawl

By  |  444 Comments

No one knows why Solange Knowles was kicking and punching Jay-Z on an elevator earlier this month, but the Internet has been full of speculation, with insiders stating that the overzealous attention from Rachel Roy toward Jay-Z was the issue.  But the Knowles and Carter families are professionals, so they’ve issued statements that they think will shut down the situation and allow them to move forward.

After the Standard Hotel’s accidental release of the footage to TMZ, which sold for a shocking $250,000, the hotel has apologized and stated that they plan to press charges against the fired employee who is responsible.

A few days later, Solange, Beyonce, and Jay-Z have issued their statement about the fight and claim that it was much ado about nothing.

“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.”

So, do you believe the statement or is this just built for meaningless PR?

This public brawl has huge financial implications for the billion dollar empire formed by Beyonce and Jay-Z.  Their carefully-crafted image has led to numerous relationships with corporate sponsors that have become quite lucrative over the years.  Finance Professor Dr Boyce Watkins and Ebony Magazine Relationships editor S. Tia Brown, authors of the book “Financial Lovemaking,” talk about this matter in the video below and discuss the family and professional implications of this kind of internal discord.

    Why is this news? Can’t we let people lead their own lives, focus on solving problems or finding good?

    This was not a public brawl. If the footage was not leaked from a money society then no, one would NEVER have known. Because when the elevators opened they looked like nothing was wrong. “I’d rather have the fortune than the fame” TUPAC

      You can’t have any expectation of privacy in a hotel elevator. Solange should have waited till she got home to beat up Jay Z. But since he made other plans for the night, she thought she could whip him in the elevator real quick before he left. Her mistake. A public elevator is no place to play out a family crisis.

        I am sure she did not think of cameras on the elevator. That is why she unleashed when the doors closed.

    The only time I have had women that angry at me is when I was married. I was also in love with my sister-in-law and my mother-in-law. So I was hitting the nappy dugout of all three.

    Sometimes one of them would react like that if they thought I wasn’t giving them enough attention.

    It was by far the best experience in my entire life having three beautiful young women to love and boodycall.

    So I suspect, my opinion only people, that perhaps they were doing similar things. Why not? Jay-Z is an average looking fellow and Solange is much finer than Beyonce. Being close to those two would be like turning a mouse loose in a cheese factory.

      Clyde… I don’t know what to say about you. You were hitting all three? Did your wife know about you being involved with her sister and mother? How could they do that to her? I’d be interested in knowing how it all came to a head. You’re a pretty sleazy guy, Clyde. But it’s not entirely your fault. Seems like the other 2 were using you as a piece of meat.

    Hey Fastblack
    Your glad this happened ?
    Wow!! (Crabs-in-the barrell).
    This incedent was total ignorance
    on Solange’s butt. This brat needs some anger management. A woman has no right to attack a man & vice- versa.
    she’s lucky J was cool & didn’t
    slap the taste out of her mouth.

    Does it really matter what we beleive. The fact is as family, they would like to drop this incident and move on. Who are we to keep it going????? We have families of our own, and would not want outsiders making a mountain out of a mole hill for us. Pray for their family unity and get over it. It is a shame that celebrities cannot have a private life. smh

    So, do you believe the statement or is this just built for meaningless PR?

    No I do not believe the statement.

    Poor attempt at damage control of exposed nasty behavior. And it is insulting to civil, loving, caring human family members to tell us that this barbaric display of anger and rage, 1. should not be publicized and 2. that we are all familiar with this kind of caring on in our families. No not ever. It ain’t in my memory bank. Loving adults? You got to be kidding. And billionaire status has nothing to do with this lowlife behavior. Who was waiting for the elevator door to open and what was their injury risk level? Reward the leaker with a public service award.

    The in-law aspect of a multi-million marriage is “trifling “.., what’s so private about bodyguards & entourage… The no.#1 rule is keep your hands to yourself , Not everyone wants to be subjected to physically attacks, But an in-law? Trifling! & Ratchet!
