Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Solange have released a statement about what happened in the elevator at the Standard Hotel following New York's Met Ball last week. It doesn’t really tell us anything, though.

As previously reported, footage shows Solange going bananas at Jay-Z, hitting him with her clutch and kicking him several times with her stiletto-clad foot. She had to be restrained by Bey and Jay’s personal security. Ever since then, the internet has exploded with memes, theories and wild speculation about what could have caused such a vicious attack.

But the trio have remained silent. Until now. ‘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,' reads a joint statement released to the Associated Press.'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 apologised to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.’

The statement also clarifies that Solange wasn’t drunk or acting crazy before they got in the lift, saying: ‘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, what we’re hearing is that Jay and Solange are both at fault? Diplomatic, sure. But the whole truth? Maybe not. If only we had that damn audio.
