The person who leaked the 2014 Met Gala after-party elevator surveillance video, showing Solange physically attacking her brother-in-law Jay-Z, has been identified & fired.
TMZ posted the audio-less, 3 minutes-long footage Monday (May 12), just a week after the incident occured, and now, according to BET News, The Standard Hotel has already delivered on their promise to investigate “with the utmost urgency.”
The hotel cites “breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video” as the reasoning for firing the individual, whose name has not been revealed to the press.
The action from the Standard is the only official response to this situation so far. Neither Solange, Jay, nor Beyoncé, who was also in the elevator, have released a statement addressing the incident. So far, beyond the rumors & speculations the matter has only been alluded to via Instagram photos posted to Beyoncé’s Instagram account on Wednesday (May 14).
