New York – A hotel where someone recorded security video appearing to show Beyoncé’s sister, Solange Knowles, attacking Jay-Z inside an elevator said it has identified and fired the person.

The Standard Hotel said yesterday the person had been terminated for “breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video”.

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

The video appears to show Solange attacking Jay-Z in Beyoncé’s presence. A security guard intervenes. The footage shows the performers in the outfits they wore to the Met Gala last week. There is no audio.

The hotel said after the video was first aired that it was “shocked and disappointed” by the security breach. It said yesterday that it will turn over “all available information to criminal authorities”.

Representatives for Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Solange haven’t commented on the video and didn’t reply to emails sent yesterday seeking comment.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé, who were married in 2008, will kick off their co-headlining On the Run Tour on June 25 in Miami.

Solange recently performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, where Beyoncé joined her onstage.
