Beyoncé Finally Speaks Out About Fight Between Jay Z and Solange Knowles

Solange Knowles Beyonce Jay Z

After days of speculation, the public finally has a response from Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Solange Knowles, speaking out about the disturbing elevator fight that happened after the Met Gala. A private elevator ride was leaked to the public, showing shocking footage of Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z, as Beyoncé stood by in silence. Now the family is ready to set the record straight.

Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Solange are presenting a united front to the public by releasing a joint statement. The family is acknowledging the abundant rumors that are circulating about what prompted the incident, denying that Solange was drunk and behaving erratically. Jay Z and Solange try to silence rumors by saying that they have worked past this incident by accepting responsibility for their own actions, and have already apologized to each other.

Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Solange also speak out about what caused the disturbing elevator fight, saying it is a private family matter that has unfortunately played out in public. The three say that they are a close family, and like any other family, they also fight and have problems. The three say that they love each other and have put the matter behind them, and they hope the public will do the same.

However, the public might not be ready to move past this fight so soon. Beyoncé and Jay Z are known as a perfect couple that is in love and always supports each other. Fans love watching them on stage together and consider them the ultimate power couple. Later this year, Beyoncé and Jay Z are also planning on touring together. However, this fight proves that the image Beyoncé and Jay Z present to fans might not be who they really are.

In the elevator fight, Beyoncé just stood there and watched as Solange Knowles punched, kicked, and yelled at Jay Z. A bodyguard had to hold Solange back, and Jay Z also did little to stop the attack. Solange was going all out, hitting as hard as she could, and even used her purse to hit the rapper, spilling the contents out on the floor. The fight went on for about three minutes and Beyoncé never once intervened, which is strange behavior for a wife who claims to love her husband.

After the elevator attack, the two sisters got into the same car, and Jay Z spoke to a bodyguard before leaving in his own car. It appeared that Beyoncé took her sister’s side, when she made Jay Z leave the event alone. Jay Z was even photographed rubbing his jaw as he walked out to the car, leading to speculation that Solange hit him pretty hard.

Even though Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Solange Knowles spoke out about the fight, it raises even more questions for the public. Fans were shocked that Beyoncé just stood there and did not defend Jay Z. Reports speculated that Solange was drunk and the couple was simply trying to stay calm because they were used to this erratic behavior. If Solange was not drunk, what prompted her to hit Jay Z? The family’s public statement was intended to silence the rumors and speculation, but it just raises even more concerns.

    My gosh ppl, ANYTHING could’ve transpired before that fight. They were probably all drinking and Jay probably put Solange down as a mother or called her a nobody or something that would really tick a woman off.. Just chill. I’m curious too and wish there was audio, but we’ll probably never know.. Now to find a PLACE to live!

    I thinkvit was wise for Beyonce not to get in between her husband and sister. She loves them both and should not choose. The fact that Jay Z held restraint and showed self control shows him being a good man and that possibly he acknowledges that he plays a part in the matter do he understands Solanges response. IJS only them and God truly knows. So glad they showed unity and self respect by releasing this statement together. Evrry family has their secrets, they are no different from the rest. Just bcuz they are celebrities ppl forget that they bleed as we do, only difference between them and us is they make a hell of a lot more money. Let these ppl be and lets move on

    where’s the prosecution when you need it. clearly a crime was committed but because it was female attacking a male it gets overlooked. regardless of the video being leaked..this is compelling evidence that should cause for some form of justice to be taken. it comparison to Chris brown, Rihanna never testified but yet we have confirmed video of an attack and nothing is done. The great American Justice system.

      Your totally right everytime there’s a male hitting a female people are all over that case but once there’s a female brutally attacking a male people wants to put that aside so they can defend the fact that women have a little bit more rights than men.

    @Mel, Beyonce not interfering because her sister and husband were arguing is understandable. Doing nothing while Solange tries to beat the heck out of her husband is not. She either endorsed it, approved of it or is too cowardly to do anything about it, even going as far to support her sister rather than her abused husband. How often are young men told that violence is not the answer? Well videos like this put that cause back a decade!

    Everyone is human, who doesn’t have fights. Honestly i am bestfriends with my sisters and i’m bestfriends with my partner so i wouldn’t interfere either. Let them fight over it themselves, what’s the point of getting involved. I think Beyonce handled herself like a real woman. She loves them both so why take sides, the matter will only get worse for her. Obviously Solange got mad at Jay Z for a reason, plus i don’t think a drunk chick is going to be able to fight the way Solange was fighting.I’ve been placed in that situation before, not liking one of my sisters partners and trust me he and i both said some bad stuff to each other and my sis stayed out of it completely, obviously she loves us both, but we worked out our differences in the end and we were all one happy family…we’re all human, rich or poor. We each sh*t don’t we, so don’t tell me the rich peoples sh*t don’t stink….

    I think you should just let it be. If it’s more than what they say it is it will unfold by its self just like this incident. Jay-Z. You an these woman. Bra you got to bring more men into your circle. That’s all she saying. Hit the weight room so you can take a punch from anybody. Money can’t buy everything my man. Life is life when it all come down to it.
