Their statement comes days after TMZ posted surveillance video of Solange yelling at, and kicking her brother-in-law in a Standard Hotel elevator during a Met Gala afterparty. (The employee who leaked the footage, as reported Thursday, was fired.)

"The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false," the statement read. "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."
