Michelle Williams On Solange Elevator Attack: ‘We Protect Each Other’
Considering that Michelle Williams, Beyoncé and Solange were all down in Costa Rica together for Kelly Rowland’s wedding the weekend following the Met Gala, there’s a good chance that the ladies spoke about that infamous elevator attack way before the public caught wind of it. But Michelle says she’ll never tell what was discussed because that’s family business.
“Man, I wish I could give you an answer,” she said at NBC’s 2014 Upfronts, according to the New York Daily News. “I don’t wish to talk about something that’s personal, and that’s what family does. We protect each other and keep it locked.”
What she was open to speaking about, however, was her new Oxygen reality show “Fix My Choir.” At this point, it’s pretty clear that no one from the Knowles-Carter camp will be revealing any details about the much-talked about altercation. As we reported yesterday, the family released a joint statement addressing the leaked elevator video and they’re pretty much maintaining a united front in hopes that they public will just drop it.
“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,” the statement reads. “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.”
Well, so much for that.
