Jay Z, Beyoncé and Solange are over the elevator fight, and likely want us to be as well. After being mocked on SNL this past weekend, the family spent time together in New Orleans over the weekend, and the smiles were abundant.
Beyoncé looked fresh-faced and casual in a striped green-and-white dress, while Solange wore a cut-out neon dress. Jay Z and Solange’s longtime partner, Alan Ferguson, kept it trendy in button-up shirts and slacks. Blue Ivy, Tina Knowles and Solange’s son, Daniel, were also present. Beyoncé made sure to post pictures of the family reunion on her official Tumblr page.
At the Met Gala afterparty in New York on May 5, Solange, Beyoncé and Jay Z got into an elevator with Beyoncé’s bodyguard, when the 27-year-old immediately began yelling at and kicking Jay Z.
In the video, Beyoncé seems to do nothing while she stands next to her husband. At one point, Beyoncé’s bodyguard has to hold Solange back. But that does not keep her from kicking Jay Z. TMZ released the black-and-white footage on Monday.
It is unclear what triggered the fight, but there is no known history of Jay Z and Solange disliking one another. Since the incident, Solange has returned home to New Orleans to spend time with her boyfriend of several years.
Last week, Beyoncé released a statement regarding the fight, which said, in part, “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."
