With the internet anticipating news of the firing of Vincent Wingate for letting the kicks and punches of 5’8 124 pound Solange Knowles get around his 6’8 280 pound frame, social media is abuzz to learn Jay Z has given him a raise, according to sources.
With Solange tweeting everything but the fight, Beyoncé with him at the Nets game, Jay Z knew the only person he had to keep an eye on was the bodyguard because Wingate would have the propensity to blab since he was not part of the family. According to sources, Jay Z approached Wingate and asked him did anyone from the media try to contact him about what happened in the elevator. To the “Holy Grail” rapper’s pleasing, Wingate confessed and admitted TMZ approached him to provide play-by-play commentary to the otherwise silent video footage of the Solange, Jay Z elevator fight. According to sources, TMZ offered him $50, 000. Perhaps looking ahead when the money runs out and not able to be trusted again to protect high-profile celebrities, Wingate reportedly rejected TMZ’s advances. According to sources, Jay Z responded to his loyalty by giving him a raise that is 3 times the amount, at $150,000.
According to sources, Jay Z is also assisting the Standard Hotel in the investigation of the parties responsible for leaking the footage to TMZ, offering a $10,000 for their capture. “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,” the hotel said in a statement obtained by E! News. “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.”
