Hotel Responds As Footage Of Jay Z And Solange's Violent Fight Leaks

Beyoncé and Jay Z's no-good-very-bad-Monday continues.

As TMZ leaked more footage of what is now known as That Epic Post-Met Gala Elevator Fight, the celeb-friendly Standard Hotel (a place Jay and Bey will surely never frequent again?) has released a statement.

"We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests," reads a statement released to USA TODAY, and first reported by "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 new footage shows Solange continuing her attack on Jay Z for three-and-a-half full minutes. That's a long elevator ride.

Says TMZ, "At one point, Solange even smacks Jay with her purse … spilling the contents all over the floor of the elevator." In the video, the security guard seems focused on keeping Solange at bay as Beyoncé continues to quietly stand next to her husband. When the group leaves the elevator, Beyoncé exits first and Jay Z pauses, seeming to indicate to Solange that she should go ahead of him. At which point she takes one last violent swing.
