Married stars Beyonce and Jay-Z's security at a New York hospital following the birth of their newborn daughter has reportedly caused problems for a Brooklyn couple this weekend.
According to reports, the Brooklyn resident claims he and his wife were unable to view their newborn daughters due to Hov and Bey's security.
Neil Coulon, 38, of Brooklyn said the stress of his wife delivering two premature girls was tripled by Beyoncé's bodyguards treating Lenox Hill Hospital like an exclusive nightclub. Coulon griped that he's been repeatedly barred from the sixth-floor neonatal intensive care unit, once for 20 minutes, by the superstar couple's private security. He said bodyguards wearing headsets even cleared the sixth floor waiting room, booting his relatives out. "Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU (Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit) and it happened once on Friday -- just because they wanted to use the hallway," said Coulon, a contractor from Bedford-Stuyvesant.

Jay and Bey allegedly paid over a million dollars to keep the hospital area to themselves.

The couple welcomed a newborn daughter late Saturday (January 7) night.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed a daughter Saturday night in New York, the little one's arrival coming via scheduled C-section, mutliple sources confirm to E! News. And the pop 'n' hip-hop princess' name? Drumroll, please... Blue Ivy Carter! (At least that's what Jay-Z is telling pals at this point--the couple's reps have not immediately responded to calls seeking comment.) (E! News)
A few days ago, Bey was spotted showing off her pregnant body in New York City.
Beyonce definitely still has a bun in the oven! There was speculation over the holidays about whether the 30-year-old singer had given birth, but Jay-Z's pregnant wife put the rumors to rest when she stepped out in NYC Thursday clutching her huge baby bump. Wearing skinny jeans, gold heels, an ornate scarf and black blazer, Beyonce was all smiles as a bodyguard accompanied her out of a New York office building. (Us Magazine)
