The employee made a quick $250,000 although the individual is now jobless.
The Standard Hotel in NYC was looking for the culprit who leaked the now infamous elevator footage of Solange attacking Jay Z, and after a few days, they've discovered who the employee is and fired him.
The employee was apparently shopping around the footage for five days before finally selling it to TMZ for $250,000. The Standard released the following statement about the employee and incident,
âThe Standard has identified the individual 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 Standard will next be turning over all available information to the criminal authorities.â
