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.

TMZ forgot to include the last sentence in their statement:

"We also promised each other to bury the name-calling hatchet. I promised to stop calling Solange 'So-badly-wants-to-be-Beyonce' and she promised to stop calling me 'Joe the Camel'

What goes on in the elevator, doesn't always stay behind closed doors...

Well what did we really expect them to say in a statement, certainly not specific fight details. This is a family, particularily Beyounce, who really really controls their public persona....to the point of being phony., even the no makeup selfies that often seem like they are offered up as...Look at me, I am just like you NOT!
Celebrities, even A List....you want everyone to look at you but in todays media world, it isn't just going to be the "pretty."

Why is TMZ quoting a robot. They haven't worked through ****. They are just saying what they need to so they dont jeopardize endorsements or other monies.

My family has had problems from time to time, but they never included assaulting one another. Is this the new normal?
