Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy Carter this weekend, but another couple claims that Lenox Hill Hospital kept them from spending time with their own newborns in intensive care because of the famous new baby, reports CBS 2 (video below).
New dad Neil Nash-Coulon says hospital security kept putting the hallway on lockdown to accommodate Beyonce’s visitors: “They should have been more strategic with where they put her. You can’t cordon off the (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). These are small newborns who need care, and you’re just going to take over the hospital like you own it? We shouldn’t have to deal with drama because they’re superstars… It isn’t fair."
The hospital says because of privacy issues, they cannot confirm that Beyonce gave birth there on Saturday. Reports claim the singer and husband Jay-Z paid the hospital around $1.3 million for an entire floor.
Lenox Hill hospital told CBS 2 putting a hallway on lockdown for a patient is not uncommon and is usually done for safety reasons. The hospital says it does not rent out floors, but it wasn’t ready to comment on specific measures this past weekend.
