The Standard Hotel employee who leaked the surveillance video of Solange Knowles attacking Jay Z in an elevator while Beyoncé looks on after the Met Gala has been fired, according to a statement released by the Standard Hotel where the event took place.

“The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ,” Brian Phillips, Standard Hotel spokesman, announced on Wednesday, May 14.

Phillips went on to confirm that they had fired the suspect and are turning over their investigative findings to the appropriate authorities.

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

The video appeared to have been recorded on a cell phone while it was shown on a security monitor, and sources revealed that there were very few people who would have had that kind of access in the first place. After the video surfaced online on TMZ, sources began speculating that the tape had been sold by a security guard for as much as $250,000, though reports varied over the exact figure, and the Standard Hotel reportedly hired Marty Singer, a Hollywood lawyer, to look into the matter for them.

“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,” the Hotel had promised earlier this week when the video went viral.

The identity of the employee deemed responsible for the leak has not been released to the public and it remains unclear what Beyoncé, Jay Z and Solange will do with the information. In their joint statement, the trio focused on clearing up the fight as a family spat and did not mention any legal proceedings.
