Video of former Baltimore Ravens’ Ray Rice attacking his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, inside a casino elevator cost TMZ a pretty penny.

According to The New Yorker, TMZ paid more than $100,000 for the security videos from the Atlantic City hotel.

The video that showed the actual punch cost nearly $90,000. Security guards at another hotel were the source.

The Ravens cut Rice after those videos surfaced.

He has not played football since.

The New Yorker says TMZ gets other celebrity news from a Delta Airlines employee and a limousine service.
