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.

I hope it was enough to compensate for the job loss! I'm sure it was and the employee should sue the hotel. They were in a public place and not their home like Mr. Sterling.

Not quite as proud as the Republicans who supported Cliven Bundy. Doesn't appear to be anyone in that elevator looking for freebies by refusing to pay taxes owed! Yup, no militias involved. Just a security guard. Obama should be proud.

Really Bush was real proud of friendships with big gas companies Remember gas at near 5 bucks a gallon or, oh yeah all the Billions of bucks and thousands of lives lost under that former pres. Is Obama really that bad that you have to link him to this story thru your post? Look back man and see where your frustrations lie

Gas was $1.87 when BO took office! Big gas companies employ thousands and the government gets more taxes than the companies get in profits and the companies have all the investment. I take it you are not a business owner.
