Rapper Jay Z and his sister-in-law Solange Knowles appear to have put their infamous feud firmly behind them by posing for photos together during a family lunch date in New Orleans, Louisiana. Beyonce’s husband and younger sibling hit headlines last week (12May14) when surveillance footage obtained by TMZ.com captured Knowles lashing out at Jay Z in an elevator at The Standard Hotel in New York, where the trio had attended an afterparty following the Met Gala on 5 May (14).
Beyonce released a rare statement addressing the “unfortunate incident” on Thursday (15May14), insisting both Jay Z and Knowles had “apologized to each other”, adding that they had all “moved forward as a united family”. The trio came together over the weekend (17-18May14) as Beyonce, Jay Z and their daughter Blue Ivy paid a visit to Knowles in her new home base of New Orleans, where the relatives enjoyed a relaxing lunch.
Beyonce has since shared a few pictures from the get-together with fans online. In one image, she is photographed beaming alongside her smiling husband, her mother Tina Knowles, and sister Solange, while another snap shows Beyonce and Blue Ivy seated at an outside table, chatting to Solange’s director boyfriend Alan Ferguson, as the Losing You singer talks to her son Julez in the background. A third shot captures Jay Z and Ferguson laughing as they bond with nine-year-old Julez.
