After claiming that Jay Z failed to come through as promised on a donation to her arts organization Marina Abramovic seems to have cleared things up with a formal apology from the Marina Abramovic Institute earlier today.

Abramovic’s misgivings, which have been chalked up to a misunderstanding according to a press release, stemmed from Jay Z’s six-hour performance of “Picasso Baby” at the Pace Gallery in New York City in 2013, an obvious adaptation of her own performance piece “The Artist Is Present.” Abramovic claimed that she participated in the “Picasso Baby” taping as a part of an agreement that the MAI would get a donation from Hov, a gift she mistakenly blasted the rapper for falling through on.

After Abramovic called Jay Z’s actions “cruel” and enough to ” stay away from [this kind of world] for sure,” the MAI issued a formal apology earlier today that says she wasn’t aware that Jay Z did indeed deliver.

Read the whole thing below.

“New York City, NY, May 20th, 2015 – Marina Abramovic was not informed of Shawn “JAY Z” Carter’s donation from two years ago when she recently did an interview with Spike Magazine in Brazil. We are sincerely sorry to both Marina Abramovic and Shawn “JAY Z” Carter for this, and since then we have taken to appropriate actions to reconcile this matter.”

  1. Will there ever be a day when we don’t have to read something about him or his wife on this website. I lost respect for him when he denied or didn’t acknowledge his older chidren. Enough already.
