Hotel fires person who recorded Jay Z attack video

Twitter Speculates: What DID Jay Z Say to Solange?

NEW YORK (AP) - A hotel where someone recorded security video appearing to showBeyonce's sister, Solange Knowles, attacking Jay Zinside an elevator said Wednesday it had identified and fired the person.

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.

you have to press assault charges....it's not a "state v/s" situation.

Actually in some states you don't need for someone to file assault charges if it's on videotape...For example the arrests made by police who get video attacks off the internet.

It's obvious that Solange has control and anger problems . Who is she to talk to Z and tell him what to do ? And then to swing on someone when they don't agree with you shows serious emotional issues . She should seek help before it gets to be a bigger problem . And she should stay away from alcohol !!

Go to show they are not special at all, just how to buy people off so you don't really see how they are. Hopefully the guy that sold the tape received a large amount of money, screw the hotel.

t's still ASSAULT no matter where or when it took place even though it was all in the family.They don't want that kind of free publicity and apparently neither does the hotel.
