The Standard, the hotel where the elevator fight between Jay Z and Solange Knowles took place on Monday 5th May 2014, has announced that the employee who leaked the video to the media has been fired.
It is still unclear if it’s a man or woman who leaked the video, but the hotel says “The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ. The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies.”
The spokesperson revealed that it will turn over its information to authorities.
TMZ reportedly gave the individual a whopping sum of $250,000 for the video.
