The instantly infamous video of Solange going for the TKO on Jay Z didn't just leak on its own like some kind of magical genie in a bottle- it was stolen.
And The Standard Hotel knows exactly who did it.
That person may have gotten beaucoup bucks for the video, but they didn't exactly get away scot free.
The Standard has officially found and terminated the employee for "breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video."
Getting fired my seem like a small price to pay when you just made yourself five years' salary, but you have to wonder- will anyone else be willing to hire this person? Lord knows they aren't getting a job on Beyoncé's yacht!
The Standard has also promised to hand over all information they've gathered to criminal authorities- so this may not be the last consequence for the ex-employee!
