A New York City hotel says it has identified and fired the person who recorded security video appearing to show Solange Knowles attacking her brother in law, Jay Z inside an elevator last week.
The Standard Hotel says the person has been terminated for ‘breaching the security polices of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video.’
We posted the video Monday and said it was shot last week inside a Standard Hotel elevator.
The video appears to show Solange attacking Jay Z, while Beyonce looks on while their bodyguard Julius intervenes.
The footage – which was reportedly sold for $250,000 following a bidding war – showed the performers in the outfits they wore to the Met Gala last week.
The hotel says it will turn over ‘all available information to criminal authorities.’
Representatives for the performers have not responded to requests for comment. Because the tape does not include audio, the world has been left to wonder what caused Beyonce’s younger sister to violently lash out at her brother-in-law.
$250,000! I think whoever leaked the footage, will be ok.
