The End of It All? The Carters Release a Statement!



Has the Carter-Knowles camp finally had enough? After an exciting week of Instagram shade and conspiracy theories on what what caused the infamous elevator fight between the siblings, it seems that it has all come to a head. The family released a statement via the Associated Press yesterday in an effort to squash all the hostility.

“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. 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. “

I guess I’ll use this time to get my memes in before it’s over.

Had to do it. I’m done.

The trio’s statement continues:

“They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family. 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.”

Well, I guess that means it’s over. In the days since the video of Solange’s Met Gala rage fit hit the internet, the Standard Hotel in NYC has found the employee who leaked the footage and fired them.  Celebrities are humans with feelings and frustrations just like the rest of us.  Good for them, trying to move on from one of the strangest situations we’ve ever seen. Lesson learned: Elevators are not the place to air out your grievances with others because somebody is  watching.


Was Beyonce Hinting at Jay-Z/Solange Problems Before the Fight Went Public? Wendy Williams Talks!


Things were all good just a week ago, so it seemed. After the internet exploded with confusion, hilarious memes and general wtf-ery (yep, I made it up) at the deep sibling-in-law rage that Solange had unleashed upon Jay-Z in that hotel elevator, it seems that Bey may have been dropping hints via Instagram after the fight initially happened. The Met Gala was held May 5th, this photo was posted to Beyonce’s Instagram May 7th. Subliminal bible verse shade? Clearly something had disturbed Mrs Knowles-Carter down to her very soul and she needed some solace.

I would also like to point out how distant and even more on auto-pilot she looks in the pictures of her and Jay at the Nets’ May 10th game. I could very well be projecting my feelings on to this, but it looks like she couldn’t care any less about being there. You know that look when you’re not listening to a single thing that someone is saying. Her body language just seemed off.

The trouble with Mr. and Mrs. Carter? Beyonce-Jay-Z-After-Solange-Fight


According to Perez Hilton’s website, some insight may have been shed on the cause of the brawl.

Moments before the attack, we KNOW the sisters were having fun (except for the Rachel Roy scuffle), because an eyewitness revealed they were dancing with supermodel Naomi Campbell, while Jay looked on lovingly!

But then, some choice words set off Solange — and the insider confessed that she did not agree with whatever her brother-in-law said:
“Solange flipped out over something Jay had said, that she took the wrong way. She took it too hard or too far. Not sure what it was, but she greatly overreacted.”

And DING DING! The gloves were off, and Solange started swinging! Once the family departed from the enclosed area, the singer walked ahead of Beyonce and her hubby, who was photographed with a stunned expression.

The source confessed that both Jay and Bey are trying to move past the unfortunate exposed situation:
“Beyonce tried to stay out of it. She does not approve of violence. They are trying to put the situation past them now.”

Is that what that was, Beyonce disapproving of violence? Could’ve fooled us because it looked like she just didn’t want to deal with the situation. I’m just saying, even if you’d seen these fights before, why not stop it before it gets started? Wendy Williams of course gives her take.

How are you feeling about this the day after? Are you still surprised or do you have your own theory behind the flying fists? Share your thoughts below!

Family Feud: Solange Attacks Jay-Z in an Elevator? [Updated with Full Video]


Certainly seems like it. According to TMZ, a huge fight broke out when Solange stepped into an elevator with Jay-Z and her sister at The Met Gala last week. We don’t know what sparked the flame, but Solange seemed awfully angry at her brother-in-law. Jay can be seen defending himself against the attack while Beyonce seems to just stand back before stepping in between them, seemingly trying to calm her sister. Solange is being restrained by someone presumed to be a bodyguard. She even tried to kick him, but he caught her by the shoe.  The bodyguard also stopped the elevator mid-trip to keep the spat private. Wow… I have no idea what he said or did to her, but it must have run deep. She got some licks in there and she wasn’t kidding.

The three of them are seen leaving the building together but get into different cars. She looks like she could spit fire, and Jay-Z has come undone.
