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.

Someone is lying; and this is important enough to find out the truth. If it's true, it should never happen, ever. Stay on it TMZ.

Enter damage control...let's face it, it's was nothing more than another Pr stunt, grandstanding the fake pregnecy. Hope the surrogate it doing fine and got lots of $ for ruining her body because we know Beyonce is tooo famous. They must be taking Pr lessons from the kardashian's.

She paid for the whole floor, so everyone STFU!! I wonder why people feel entitled to infringe on someone's privacy. There is one guy that is claiming he could not visit his children, he is so full of ****. His eyeballs must be brown

I'm calling BS on this. I think the Hospital took the money. Hospitals need money. Minimal disruption is unacceptable...there should be NO disruption to the other families. I'd sue and walk away with that 1.3 mil the hospital got.

I believe she had a surrogate give birth to her child. thats the need for such high security. Remember the supposed " Baby Bump" that bent in half when she was on a talk show. And in 1 month when she sings on stage I bet she will look like she never had a kid....cuz really she didnt
