The statement, given to the Associated Press, said the family unit had now worked through it and stated that Jay Z and Solange had both apologised to each other.
An explanation as to the reason behind the assault, however, was not included.
‘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’, the Knowles-Carter family statement read.
‘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.’
It continued: ‘They both have apologised to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.’
