Standard Hotel Fires Employee Who Sold Solange and Jay Z Elevator Fight Video

The Standard Hotel has confirmed that it has identified and fired the employee who leaked the security camera clip of Solange Knowles’ scuffle with Jay Z.

In a statement, the New York hotel said the person responsible for leaking the much-talked about footage had been terminated for “breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video,” and it is turning over “all available information to criminal authorities.”

The employee did manage to earn $250,000 for the sale of the tape, so I guess that isn’t a bad consolation prize.

However, if that person was working in security, they better find themselves a new career, because they won’t be working in security ever again.

According to New York Daily News, the fight happened because Solange did not like the way the rapper acted around designer Rachel Roy at the Met Gala. A source previously told Us Weekly that Solange yelled, “Anyone who gets close to Jay has to be warned and deal with her as a sister.”

“Why can’t you go home?” a drunk Solange reportedly asked Jay-Z who wanted to continue partying. She then asked her big sis, “Why does your husband need to go to the club right now?” A fight broke out seconds later, but Solange was reportedly held by a bodyguard. “Rachel is a little too close to Jay Z. Solange doesn’t like it, and Beyonce doesn’t like it,” a source claimed.
