In statement to the Associated Press, Mr. and Mrs. Carter said:

“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.”

The hotel where the infamous Jay Z elevator attack video was recorded fired the staffer who sold the footage to the media for big bucks.

Officials at The Standard hotel said Wednesday that they had identified the person who leaked a security video of Solange Knowles — sister of the rap impresario’s wife, Beyoncé — going ballistic on him in the elevator while they were leaving a Met Ball after-party last week.

“The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ,” said officials from The Standard in a statement. “The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies. The Standard will next be turning over all available information to the criminal authorities.”

The employee had shopped the footage around for five days before selling it to TMZ for $250,000.

There’s no word yet on what caused Solange to attack and assault Jay Z in this matter. And, the way Beyonce stood by and didn’t do anything, you’ll think it’s normal for Solange to act like this.

The Carter’s must be embarrassed by this footage leaked.

Update: Extended footage of Solange attacking Jay Z below.

Jay Z was ferociously assaulted by Beyonce’s sister Solange … who was wildly kicking and swinging at him inside an elevator … and the attack was captured on surveillance video … obtained by TMZ.

According to our sources, it all went down at a Met Gala after party last week at the Standard Hotel in NYC. In the video … Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange step into the elevator … and then Solange goes crazy, screaming at Jay before unleashing a violent attack.

A large man — who appears to be a bodyguard — attempts to hold Solange back, but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At one point Solange throws a kick and Jay grabs her foot, but never attempts to strike her. Beyonce stands by without getting physically involved.

It’s unclear what triggered the fight.

And this is interesting. When you look closely, you see the bodyguard hit the emergency stop switch on the 12th floor — mid fight — presumably to keep the fight private.

All three walked out of the building together — Solange looks pissed — but while Bey and Solange get in one car … security walks Jay to a different one.
