Congratulation to Kelly Rowland. The Destiny’s Child singer maried in secret this week to her partner and manager in Costa Rica. Former bandmate Beyonce Knowles attended the ceremony with her sister Solange.
Albeit a rather tenuous link, this week saw footage released from the Met Gala ball where Solange Knowles was caught lashing out at Mr Beyonce himself. Security had to physically restrain Solange as she attacked Jay Z. A statement has since been issued:
“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, 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.”
