The employee at the Standard Hotel who leaked video of Solange getting into a fight with Jay Z is now a former employee. According to the Associated Press, that person was fired for “breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video.”
A spokesperson for the Standard also said that they were turning all available information of over to the criminal authorities, which The Wire covered in depth earlier today.
Still, pending criminal charges, it’s tough to feel bad for the newly unemployed: TMZ reportedly paid $250,000 for the 3-minute tape, according to The New York Post. That’s about $1190 per second.
