Solange Knowles Video Leaker: Fired from Standard Hotel!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jay Z was not the only victim in this month's Solange Knowles' attack.

New York's Standard Hotel also saw its security breached with the release of the viral surveillance video - and it has now reacted to the situation by firing the individual involved.

In a statement released to a number of news outlets, the establishment said the employee terminated was "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 added.

The ugly incident went down in an elevator at the Standard Hotel following an after-party for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala on May 5.

No one involved - neither Beyonce nor Solange nor Jay Z - have spoken publicly on the confrontation, but Beyonce did update her Instagram account yesterday to include new pictures of her sister.

Insiders, meanwhile, say the famous couple has dealt with many Solange outbursts in the past, so they were able to move on fairly quickly from this meltdown.

As for what caused it... that remains a mystery.

Was designer Rachel Roy somehow involved? We can't say for sure, but we have some theories:

Solange Has a Drinking Problem
Many have pointed out that the fight took place at the end of a very long night of partying, and Solange may have been drunk at the time of the event. Reactions from those around her suggest this sort of thing happens often.
