Beyonce and Jay-Z

Increased Security Allegedly

Kept Man from His Newborns

1/8/2012 4:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A Brooklyn man claims increased security at Lenox Hill hospital -- because of the presence of Beyonce and Jay-Z -- kept him from seeing his prematurely born twins ... this according to a report. 

Neil Coulon tells the NY Daily News he has been repeatedly kept out of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) by the couple's security. He also claims his relatives were booted out of the waiting room by bodyguards wearing headsets. 

He tells the paper, "Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU and it happened once on Friday -- just because they wanted to use the hallway."

A rep for the hospital told the NYDN she hadn't personally heard of any complaints. We reached out for comment as well ... haven't heard back.

Sorry dude but if you didn't get to see your premies it's your own fault. If I had babies in the NICU it would take a hell of a lot more than Beyonce's private security to keep me from them. I would have raised hell and called the cops if needed. You're a dad now - grow a spine.

If I were that man - and this is true - I would SUE Beyonce & Jay Z. for "Emotional Distress" for keeping me from seeing MY OWN CHILD in the ICU! That's F**KED UP!

Beyonce got paid a million dollars to do a private show for Gadhafi. That thug killed thousands of people in his lifetime including innocent people on an airplane over Lockerbie Scotland. Did she ever pay taxes on that money or give the money back? Stop supporting her elitist attitude by not buying tickets for her shows and her cd's. She has no solo talent anyway. LOL @ if you want put a ring on it.

They are exactly this selfish. Beyonce didn't have a single thought for any other mother there which is ironic because the only reason she did all of this is to hide her surrogate.
People should not be ashamed of using surrogates-unless the surrogate isn't a surrogate and is actually Jays side piece.

This is just so sad. My twin daughters were in the NICU for 2 months for being premature. If some celebrity decided to give birth in the hospital and make it difficult for ME or my HUSBAND, or my FAMILY to see MY babies, you bet I would be arguing with the security, the staff, the directors, and would be letting every media outlet know! Being rich gives you NO right to step on the toes of other rights! I'm so sorry this family is going through this, especially when they are going through something as stressful as the NICU.

Shame on B and Jay. There are plenty of ways to have a baby safely and privately without blocking off a hospital floor or department. There is no excuse for in ANY way influencing how other new parents can access their own newborns. No excuse.

I don't care about the surrogate debate, I don't care about any of the rumours, there is just no excuse. With all their money they could have arranged this without poohah getting in the way of other peoples' newborns.

Very very selfish that they did not plan that properly. Plan your bulletproof glass and security, but by all means don't plan how it will affect other parents on that floor.

It appears that the all hollyweird clan has over extended there self proclaimed god status and turning the admiration of fans to nothing but degust. Or as the hodashian's describes as "haters". The hospital should be sued because the father trying visit his children was also a paying customers to that hospital and they violated his rights. Beyonce and Jay-Z are nothing but pieces of sh*t.

Aside from the unnecessary gluttony and selfishness, paying for a hospital to function as a medical hotel is a deviation from standard of care and potentially harmful to the other patients. As a healthcare provider, that's a risk I would be reluctant to take.

I agree with the other posters. They were just trying to hide the fact that they used a surrogate. If not then all they would have needed to do was have guards outside of Beyonce's room and there would be no need to take over an entire NICU. This reeks! And you better believe the Hospital was in on it otherwise those guards would not been able to get away with barring fathers and visitors from seeing newborns! That Hospital spokeperson is lying through her teeth That Hospital must have been paid off to allow such a thing.

I dont care who you are. That is not fair and make no sense. If thats the case the birth should have been private and at home. They wanted the caos wow dont you have enough of attention.
