Jay ZBeyoncéSolange: “Families have problems and we’re no different.” It seems like the Carter-Knowles clan is putting fodder about their post-Met Gala incident to rest by releasing an official, joint statement to AP. “Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred,” the statement reads, later adding “They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family.” Case closed… or is it? [AP]

Sandra Oh’s last day on the Grey’s Anatomy set was marked by tears, hugs, and a heart-warming gift exchange. “Because it was a celebration, it was this beautiful champagne in a box, and on it is an anatomical heart and a ‘10,’” She said of the 250 gifts she gave to cast and crew. “It’s was like, ‘Here’s my heart in a box for a celebration. Please take it. This is my gift of thanks.’” As for what she received in return? “They gave me the very first call sheet from the pilot and Cristina had this other last name. And they gave me the last call sheet. March 17, 2004, and April 24, 2014. My first and last days.” Tear! [The Hollywood Reporter]

Academy Award-winning director Michel Hazanavicius (of The Artist fame), is catching on to comedy.

They don’t call Godzilla the King of the Monsters for nothing! The Thursday night bow of the sci-fi flick made $9.3 million at the domestic box office; it’s expected to gross more than $70 million when it expands to 4,000 theaters nationwide, which could break a record if it tops 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park’s $72 million weekend debut. [Variety]

Donald Sterling is truly apologetic for his unsavory, racist rant… or nah? According to a source close to the NBA scandal, the Los Angeles Clippers owner refuses to pay a $2.5 million fine for a leaked audio recording, is rejecting Commissioner Adam Silver’s lifetime ban, and is threatening to sue the league. [CNN]
