Hotel fires person who leaked video showing Beyonce’s sister attacking Jay Z
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.”
Representatives for Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange haven’t commented on the video and didn’t reply to emails sent Wednesday seeking comment.
Jay Z and Beyonce, who were married in 2008, will kick off their co-headlining On the Run Tour on June 25 in Miami.
Solange recently performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, where Beyonce joined her onstage.
