It’s easy to entertain conspiracy theories regarding who might have leaked the video and why (does Warriors ownership not want to give Green a contract extension, so they’re using this to prime the public for a divorce? Does the practice videographer have a personal vendetta against Green for some reason? Did Green himself want the world to know that his right hook could kill a small animal?).

A New Yorker article from 2016 explored how TMZ usually obtains these videos, and also revealed how much the site paid for some of its most high-profile stories.

According to the New Yorker, TMZ paid roughly $90,000 for the video of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer inside of an elevator, and $80,000 for a video of a 14-year-old Justin Bieber using the N-word.

TMZ is not subtle about soliciting tips: The tip line is printed right at the top of the website with a big red banner asking if a reader has “Got a tip?”
