Earlier this May Beyoncé Knowles-Carter’s sister Solange attacked Jay-Z in the elevator of a New York hotel. Shortly after the brawl between the two, one of the hotel’s staff members released the video footage from the elevator’s surveillance camera to TMZ. The gossip website uploaded the video on the web and the media went crazy over the story.
The story went viral, filling the internet with rumors about what could have caused the altercation. The most popular ones were that Solange was seriously intoxicated at that time, and that Beyoncé and her hubby were getting a divorce. The couple has finally spoken about the infamous scandal. The two labeled rumors of Solange’s drinking problems as completely false and stood behind their marriage, which they say isn’t going to end – at least not this year. Jay-Z and Beyoncé told the media that they’ve put the fight behind that. The couple told CNN that every family has its problems and that theirs wasn’t any different, but that they’ve gotten over the incident.
