Solange Knowles has remained rather quiet when it comes to commenting on her row with brother-in-law Jay Z - and seems to be happy enough to leave it well in the past.

Referring to the one-sided attack as "that thing" in an interview with Lucky magazine, the 28-year-old sister of Beyonce Knowles suggests that the violent incident has now been forgotten by all parties involved.

“What’s important is that my family and I are all good,” she told Lucky. “What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that.”

The seemingly unprovoked attack on Jay Z by Solange took place in the elevator of The Standard hotel in New York City after the trio attended the Met Gala after-party.

Leaked security footage, which quickly went viral, shows Solange being restrained by a bodyguard while older sister Beyoncé (32) stands by.

Several days after the attack, the family released a joint statement saying: “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.”
