Jay Z
and Solange are finally addressing the infamous elevator fight video ... saying BOTH sides are to blame for the violence that unfolded. 

Jay Z, Solange, and Beyonce released the joint statement moments ago, saying, "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 continues, "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."

The statement still doesn't explain what caused the fight, but Jay and Solange say they have worked through it.

I don't know about you guys, but my family doesn't beat each other when we have problems. We talk to each other like civilized people, and not act like animals. Especially when these are grown ass adults in their 30's and however old JayZ is.

I am astonished that NO ONE addresses the VIOLENCE!! I have gotten angry with my brother-in-law, but would never dream of going kung-fu to his chin in an elevator!!

Its not our business. They shouldn't OF even came out with this statement. Its a family matter and they didn't owe ANYONE an explanation for what happened.

Very true, families have PRIVATE issues everyday, were just fortunate enough not to have everyone so interested in our private matters that EVERY family has and goes through. Now let's leave them alone and give them at least a smidge of privacy. It's noones business why they argued just like your family business is no one else's!
