The Standard Hotel has fired the employee who leaked a surveillance video allegedly showing Solange Knowles fighting with Jay Z in an elevator at the New York City hot spot.

“The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ,” the hotel announced in a statement. “The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies.”

The now-infamous video was purportedly recorded on May 5, when Jay Z attended a Met Gala after-party at the hotel with his wife and sister-in-law. TMZ released the clip — which shows Solange allegedly kicking and throwing fists at Jay Z while a security guard attempts to restrain her and Beyonce looks on — on May 12.

The three stars have not commented on the incident, though Beyonce has been making a show of solidarity with both her husband and sister since the altercation.
