Guess we’ll see how far that $250K goes when the lawsuits start pouring in…

Standard Hotel Fires Employee Who Leaked Tape Of Solange Attacking Jay Z

According to Page Six reports:

The hotel where the infamous Jay Z elevator attack video was recorded fired the staffer who sold the footage to the media for big bucks.

Officials at The Standard hotel said Wednesday that they had identified the person who leaked a security video of Solange Knowles — sister of the rap impresario’s wife, Beyoncé — going ballistic on him in the elevator while they were leaving a Met Ball after-party last week.

“The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ,” said officials from The Standard in a statement. “The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies. The Standard will next be turning over all available information to the criminal authorities.”

The employee had shopped the footage around for five days before selling it to TMZ for $250,000.

We would say who needs a crummy hotel job when you’ve got $250K but something tells us it’s gonna be rough for them to hang on to that money — OR get a new gig!
