Beyonce Baby Drama

Hospital DENIES Closing Maternity Floor

1/9/2012 1:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce and Jay-Z did NOT pay $1.3 million so the Destiny's Child singer could give birth to Blue Ivy in a sealed off private floor ... this according to the hospital.

A rep for Lenox Hill Hospital just released a statement, claiming, "The suggestion that the couple paid $1.3 million to rent an entire maternity floor is simply not true."

The rep adds, "The family is housed in an executive suite at the hospital and is being billed the standard rate for those accommodations."

According to the rep, "The family does have its own security detail on site. However, the hospital has been and continues to be in control of managing all security at the facility. We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days."

TMZ broke the story ... moms at Lenox Hill are considering filing a lawsuit against the hospital, claiming they were treated like 2nd class citizens when Beyonce rolled in this weekend.

This hospital has their "spin doctors" working overtime on this situation. I beleive J & B paid the money to the hospital. Now that hospital are trying to do a cover-up.

Any disruption to any other patient is unacceptable.

These two idiots are prime example of what is wrong with this country.

If what the hospital is saying is true, then the security detail hired by Beyonce had NO AUTHORITY to tell anyone what to do unless they were trying to get to Beyonce. I think the hospital sold out and is now trying to do damage control. The mothers threatening a lawsuit should sue both the private security detail AND the hospital and then sit back and watch who throws who under the bus the fastest. If nothing else, it would be highly entertaining.

I also read that one of the fathers of premature twins was not allowed to see them in the nursery when he wanted to because of the security surrounding Beyonce.

This whole report is a lie. Of STAR magazine proportions. I dont 'have a friend' who works there....I do. The hospital did not shut down the maternity for them. There are executive suites for people..any people..who want to pay for them. These DO NOT affect the other patients at all and staff is not compromised because of them. Just another bunch of litigious people looking to sue anyone for anything. Dont waste your time or money.

I actually met Beyonce back in November. She was definitely 100% pregnant. When I hugged her, I made sure to feel and her belly was real. I am not a Beyonce fan at all so I don't care either way. But, it just sucks that so many people are saying she's lying.

Of course the hospital is full of crap. The got caught possible Violating Hippa and Jacho rules. Of course they will try a cover up

Here a solution call the police on the security because your getting a creepy vib that they are baby snatchers.

Perhaps one of the reasons for that much security was threat of kidnapping, or that if an unauthorized person sneaks the first baby photo on his or her cell phone, Beyonce can no longer sell that photo for the millions it would have brought (and she may have been planning to give the money to charity, as Angelina and Brad did). However, the birth of the other parents' babies is also a once-in-lifetime moment for them, too, and their memories should not be marred by being barred from seeing their newborns in the nursery or being given less attention in their hospital rooms, or being spoken to rudely by thud bodyguards.
