A New York hotel said Wednesday it had identified and fired the person who recorded security camera footage that appeared to show Solange hitting Jay Z during an argument in the elevator.
The hotel fired the person behind the leak, but did not identify them to the press. Via the Associated Press:
The Standard Hotel said the person had been terminated for “breaching the security polices of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video.”
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.”
Aworker at the Standard Hotel said the video was made with a cell phone that recorded images from a monitor in a back room at the hotel.
TMZ reportedly paid the person who leaked the tape $250,000.
Gumbumpers, do you think they would have gotten more from the Bey and Jay NOT to leak the video?
