**Figure 1.**Experimental setup. A maximally entangled singlet state is generated by pumping a type-II ${\mathrm{Beta}-\mathrm{BaB}}_{2}$${\mathrm{O}}_{4}$ (BBO) crystal. Two polarization measurements, M1 and M2 (at times ${t}_{1}$ and ${t}_{2}$, respectively) are performed in sequence on photon A, while a single measurement (M3) is carried on photon B. Correlations among them certify entanglement monogamy violation for the whole pseudo-density operator (PDO) ${R}_{123}$ in Equation (2), describing the scenario of the spatio-temporal multi-partite entanglement (outside and inside the black hole) considered.

**Figure 2.**Tomographic reconstruction of the real (panel

**a**) and imaginary (panel

**b**) part of the reduced pseudo-density operator ${R}_{12}=\frac{1}{4}(I+{\mathsf{\Sigma}}_{12})$, describing the temporal correlations between qubits 1 and 2, compared with the corresponding theoretical expectations (panels

**c**and

**d**, respectively).

**b**) part of the reduced pseudo-density operator ${R}_{13}=\frac{1}{4}(I-{\mathsf{\Sigma}}_{13})$, related to the spatially maximally entangled state within the black hole, compared with the corresponding theoretically-expected counterparts (panels

**c**and

**d**, respectively).
