The Knowles-Carter family have  finally released a statement following a leaked video showing Solange kicking and punching  her sister’s boyfriend Jay Z as Beyonce stood aside, palms clasped.

In the exclusive statement to Associated Press, the trio say “all families have problems and we are no different.”

The internet went HAM on Tuesday after TMZ revealed a three minute video of the fight in a New York elevator where the trio went following last week’s Met Ball.

Read the entire statement below:

“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. 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.”
