exclusive jay z solange elevator fight the standard nyc response

The world’s collective mind was BLOWN this morning when video footage leaked showing Jay Z‘s and his sister-in-law Solange Knowles fighting in a hotel elevator after last week’s Met Gala.

Most of us are still picking our jaws up off the floor, but we should keep in mind that the altercation occurred more than a few days ago!

It’s probably safe to assume that management at The Standard, the fancy NYC hotel where Beyonc├â┬⌐‘s loved ones brawled, has been sitting on this tape for awhile!

So, how did they react the footage leaked this morning and quickly went viral?

Here’s a hint: they are PISSED!!!!

In a statement EXCLUSIVE! to PerezHilton.com, a rep from The Standard confessed:

“We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. 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 makes sense that a fancy-schmancy hotel that caters to the rich, powerful, and occasionally ill-tempered should value its internal security, so we aren’t surprised by the the company’s disappointment!

Still, we hoped they’d give us some insight into #WhatJayZSaidToSolange!

Was it about Bey? Was it about his self-acknowledged past as a projects drug dealer? Was she mad that the Nets are getting their butts kicked in the NBA playoffs?

Ughh! We cannot wait to find out what really went down!
