Hotel fires person who recorded Jay Z attack video

– A New York City hotel says it has identified and fired the person who recorded security video appearing to show Beyonce’s sister attacking Jay Z inside an elevator.

The Standard Hotel says the person has been terminated for “breaching the security polices of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video.”

Celebrity website TMZ posted the video Monday and said it was shot last week inside a Standard Hotel elevator.

The video appears to show Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z in Beyonce’s presence. A security guard intervenes. The footage shows the performers in the outfits they wore to the Met Gala last week.

The hotel says it will turn over “all available information to criminal authorities.”

Representatives for the performers haven’t replied to emails sent Wednesday seeking comment.
