Well everyone saw this coming. You just can’t leak information and think you’re not going to get caught, eventually. Wednesday night, The Standard Hotel discovered who was behind the leak of a tape that showed Solange attacking Jay Z in their elevator. The hotel has reported that the unnamed person has been fired.
The Standard Hotel said the person had been terminated for “breaching the security polices of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video.”
Celebrity website TMZ posted the 3-minute video on Monday and said it was shot last week inside a Standard Hotel elevator.
The video appears to show Solange attacking Jay Z in Beyonce’s presence. A security guard intervenes. The footage shows the performers in the outfits they wore to the Met Gala last week. There is no audio.
The hotel said after the video was first aired that it was “shocked and disappointed” by the security breach. It said Wednesday that it will turn over “all available information to criminal authorities.”
It’s been reported that TMZ paid $250,000 for the tape. Hopefully the unemployed person won’t spend it all at once.
