Solange Posts Throwback Pic With Beyonce, Hotel Fires Employee Responsible For Leaking Jay Z Fight Footage
Posted on Thu May 15th, 2014 9:20am PDT By X17 Staff
The employee at the Standard Hotel in New York City who leaked the video of Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z in an elevator has been fired. A rep for the Standard said they have "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 statement continued. "The Standard will next be turning over all available information to the criminal authorities."
Apparently the unnamed employee filmed the footage from one of the security monitors on their cell phone, and when it first hit the web the hotel said, "We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals to our fullest capacity."
In the grainy footage you can see Solange repeatedly attempting to punch and kick Jay Z while Beyonce stands by, and though none of the stars have commented on the incident, Beyonce and Solange have seemingly addressed it on their social media accounts. Though Solange seems to have been dropped from the Roc Nation record label, it does appear as though the sisters have mended fences.
After the leak, Solange deleted a handful of Instagram photos with Bey, and though Bey posted a cryptic message two days after the incident occurred, this week she uploaded a series of throwback pictures of the two, and this morning Solange added this adorable throwback photo above of the two ladies together several decades ago...
But will they ever release a statement on this?
