Here's the statement Beyonce released this afternoon via the AP:

“As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage form Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident,” The singer said Thursday in her first statement which was released to the Associated Press.

“But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it,” she continued, “Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matte that has played out in the public. They have both apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.”
