In a new interview with Lucky magazine, Beyonce's sister says everyone has moved on following the fight, which happened at New York's Standard Hotel at a Met gala after-party.

Referring to the incident as "that thing," the 28-year-old singer briefly addressed what happened.

"What's important is that my family and I are all good," she said in the magazine's August issue. "What we had to say collectively was in the statement that we put out, and we all feel at peace with that."

The statement she's referring to was released after surveillance footage that showed the elevator fight became public and made headlines.

"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," it read. "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," the statement continued. "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."
