Breaking: The Standard Hotel Fires Worker Who Leaked Solange and Jay Z Fight

solange-600

The hotel worker who leaked the video of Solange beating the brakes off of Jay Z has been fired by The Standard Hotel.  The New York hotel released a statement reading,

“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 Brian Phillips, a spokesman for the hotel.

“The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies.”

In the statement, Phillips said the hotel will turn over its information to authorities.

Shortly after the video was released, the hotel said it was “shocked and disappointed” by the breach of security.

“We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity,” it said this week.

The name wasn’t released of the worker who apparently shopped the footage before selling it to TMZ for allegedly upwards of $250-thousand.  Well at least they don’t have to worry about paying their bills as they embark on their new job hunt. From the look of things, the employee will at minimum be required to cough up that dough TMZ paid him. We are wondering will Harvey Levin represent the terminated employee in court? Will TMZ be named in a future lawsuit?
