Was it worth it?
That’s the question you have to ask yourself, after reports surfaced of how much the now-fired employee who reportedly sold the video of Solange Knowles violently attacking Jay Z in an elevator received for leaking the recording.
While the reports could not be independently confirmed at press time, the New York Post’s Page Six said that the tape might have been sold to TMZ for up to $250,000.
“This was being shopped for five days to the highest bidder,” an unnamed source said, noting that famed Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer has been hired to find out who the source of the leak was.
Another source, also unidentified, reportedly told E! Online that the sale price for the tape sold by an unnamed female security guard was closer to $50,000-$100,000.
