Solange Knowles is moving on.

Beyoncé's younger sister was spotted taking an afternoon stroll near the riverfront in New Orleans with her boyfriend Alan Ferguson just days after the elevator security footage revealing her physical altercation with brother-in-law Jay-Z hit the Internet.

Solange, dressed in mellow yellow (no pun intended), was photographed enjoying the day while walking with Ferguson hand-in-hand on Wednesday. A source told E! News earlier today, "Solange's primary residence is now in New Orleans, not Brooklyn. She is in [New Orleans] getting back to her normal life: being a mom, taking her son to school and trying to get on with it."

The trio hadn't directly addressed the situation at hand (aside from some interesting Instagram activity) for a while when the tape was released, but today, the Carter-Knowles family released a joint statement.

"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," Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solangesaid Thursday in a joint statement about the leaked video that showed her sister Solange physically attacking Jay Z.

"But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it," the statement continued.

"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 altercation took place following a Met Gala afterparty at the Standard hotel in New York City on May 5, but it was not until the footage was leaked to TMZ and posted online Monday that anyone other than the small group in the elevator were aware of what went down.

Standard management immediately issued a statement blasting the security breach, and E! News confirmed this morning that the hotel had fired the security guard who was identified as the source of the leak.
