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.

Its not "alleged" I have friends who went through the same thing at that hospital because of those two. So she had a baby!!! Who gives a **** about Beyonce, Jay-Z or their baby? I dont thats for sure! Besides Beyonce like to perform at the bday parties of dictators that are against the US she should be punched in the throat for t hat too!

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! The Hospital spokeperson is lying through her teeth! That Hospital must have been paid off in a big way to allow such a thing.

This is disgusting. They feel superior to anyone. That poor man having to deal with security to get to his children. They should be ashamed and the hospital and Beyonce need to apologize.

This is ridiculous! They really feel that important? They should be ashamed of themselves! What makes them better then any other couple trying to have a baby in the hospital. I can't believe we put celebs in such high reguard that they can shut down a hospital. If you wanted a private birth why not have the baby at home with a medical staff at your house. I am done buying anything to do with these 2. I would be irrate if they kept me from my child in neonatal. Its a scary thing to go through in the first place (had 3 kids in neonatal) let alone being kepted away. What if something had happened and they didnt get their last moments with a child.

Stupid. Totally stupid and arrogant on beyonce's part. The most over rated singer in the world! It's time to stop buying her records and going to her concerts! I never do, anyway. I hope parents sue not only the hospital, but beyonce as well, for all the inconvenience and emotional distress.

If I had a child in NICU the least thing in my list would be to see a pathetic celebrity face! If I were in that situation, and someone would block me from seen my child, all hell would break loose.

I don't care how much they paid, they have no right to impose on parents visiting their newborns in NICU. Disgusting. Please have your offspring at home, you would have had much more privacy and wouldn't have pissed half the country off.

I think just because your rich or famous doesnt give you the right to disrupt a hospital the way they did. if they wanted privacy they should have built a hospital in their house and had the doctors come to them. I think what they did was disgusting.

If privacy was what they wanted, have Blue Ivy at the house. Hell if Michael Jackson could afford a doctor to kill him at home. I m sure Bey & jay could afford a doctor bring life in the world at home. One the other hand, if you goin rent a whole wing, empty it!
