her sister Solange, and husband Jay Z have spoken out and are ready to move on from the “unfortunate incident” surrounding a leaked elevator video that captured a private family feud.
“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,” the trio said in an exclusive statement to the Associated Press on Thursday. “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.”
Earlier this week TMZ posted a three-minute video showing Solange attacking Jay Z in an elevator at a Met Gala afterparty at New York City’s Standard Hotel. The employee who leaked the footage has since been fired.
“The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false,” the statement continued. “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.”
Speculation has been running rampant about what triggered the incident, but over the course of the past few days both Beyoncé and Solange have shown a united front, posting photos of themselves in happier times on their respective Instagram accounts.
Cassey Kassem Found:
One day after his family filed a missing person’s report, radio legend Casey Kasem’s location has been confirmed. According to reports, the 82-year-old former “American Top 40″ host, who suffers from a progressive type of dementia, was tracked down in Washington state in an undisclosed location.
“The family has grave concerns about his medical care,” a Kasem family spokesperson said in a statement. “The Kasem family will do everything in their power to bring their father home.”
Daughter Kerri, who was granted a temporary conservatorship by a judge on Monday, added, “We are grateful to local authorities for finding my Dad… We are one step closer to bringing him home.”
According to CNN, sheriff’s deputies in Kitsap County, Washington, performed a welfare check on Tuesday at an address provided by California Adult Protective Services. While there, authorities found Kasem and his wife visiting some unidentified people at a home, where the couple told deputies they were on vacation. Deputies left after determining that Kasem, who is no longer able to speak due to his illness, was not in any distress.
