We’ve got more news on the Jay Z and Solange fight front.

Apparently, an unknown employee of the Standard Hotel, where the infamous elevator fight occurred, sold the recording of said fight to TMZ for a whopping $250,000.

Naturally, the person who sold this tape was fired and is facing legal action, but it seems to have been more than worth it for this anonymous individual. I mean, hotel employees make next to nothing, and $250K could amount to many years worth of salary. Basically, he/she hit the goddamn jackpot.

What’s more, other sources have come out of the woodwork claiming that Solange was “crazy drunk and out of it” on the night of the Met Gala. She may have also been under the influence of other substances besides just alcohol.

Of late, Solange has also been under a great deal of personal and professional strain as she was dropped from Jay Z’s record label and had recently relocated from Brooklyn to New Orleans. All of these components seem to have set the table for the now-notorious fight.

Another interesting facet of this whole saga is that it has caused the hotel industry to collectively sh*t its pants. Hotels were once thought of as private arenas where guests, especially A-listers, could hide out and expect to be out of the public eye.

But those days seem to be coming to a close. I’m curious to see how hotels move forward in their attempts to protect their guests privacy.
