Beyonce Baby Drama

Health Dept. INVESTIGATING

The NY State Health Department is investigating complaints from new parents who claim they were mistreated by the staff at Lenox Hill Hospital while Beyonce was giving birth in the VIP room.

TMZ broke the story ... several parents are considering filing a lawsuit against LHH -- claiming they were neglected by staff and prevented from visiting their newborns ... due to the drama surrounding the superstar.

Now, a rep for the Health Dept. tells the NY Daily News, "Whenever we receive a complaint, we look into it. It’s not necessarily an investigation. It could be a review. Most likely in this case, it would be an investigation.”

It's unclear how many parents complained -- but as we previously reported, a whole bunch of people were griping about the situation during a breastfeeding class a few days ago.

5:49 PM PST -- The NY Health Dept. has announced it has reviewed and DISMISSED the complaints filed against the hospital.

However, a spokesperson for Lenox says the hospital will conduct its own internal investigation into allegations about the mistreatment of maternity patients.

They were probably trying to protect their secret that they had a surrogate. Now I ask if they had a surrogate, what is the big deal? Go to tape of her in Australia, it is proof she was not carrying her child.

the truth    

when other famous people give birth in hospitals it never got this out of hand. they probably wanted to make sure no one seen the serigant mother haviny. the baby. i still dont believe she was preggo. one day small stomach..next big...next small and then her very flexible baby folds while she sits down.she dint gain any weight what so ever either. i wonder if shes gonna be on a commercial saying how to lose baby weight so fast.

it is clear that the parents in the hospital got wind that Beyonce was giving birth & decided to be nosy & try to see the baby ect... that must be the only explanation for security to be rude to them. No hospital would deny a parent with an armband that matches their child access to seeing their own kid.PPl just got mad cuz security was tight & the couldn't get pics so now they are flipping the story to make it seem as if they were abused & denied access. the hospital clearly said Bey had a suite just like any other family who paid for it. Another thing, stop saying she should have had her baby at home cuz wendy Williams already was talking trash on her show saying Bey would have a home water birth with 3 ppl present, her, jay & the midwife.She had a baby, babies are a gift from God & as a mother myself I am shocked at the heights of negativity & reckless comments. All the negative comments come from haters who are empty barrels and make the most noise.At the end of the day do you see why she kept her delivery under tight wraps becuz of you overcrazed idiots who mean no good & if ppl keep believing this satan crap I'm sure someone will try to harm that child. The hospital dismissed the claims so it's clear people were reaching bcuz i just knew all these reports were way over the top.End of story ppl... leave it alone

Funny how all you people commenting about how celebrities don't matter and you couldn't care less about celebrities are logged onto a celebrity gossip website that is 100% about celebrities......

Actually their babies are way more important than yours. You're on here reading about their babies, but no one's reading about yours. Case in point.

honesty    

Sometimes the more famous you are, the more lies are spread about you.
Sometimes you are more of a target for people out for money.
Sometimes you get away with murder, literally.

What does Satan promote? Hate... What do these posts promote? Hate... Whose representing Satan? I'd say the people filled with unreasonable jealou*****red.. I dare say, the Carters are enveloped in love especially right now. There is a God of love. Did you know that? Why not try spreading that around instead of all thi*****eful manure. By the way, the reason the hospital dismissed the case is 'cause the complaints were made on Wednesday, the Carters had their baby on Saturday. Read that on another hate filled post. What's wrong with people???

Just two more self entitled A-holes who think since they are famous and rich they can do whatever they want without any care for others or consequences. Jay Z and Beyonce could give a rats ass if other parents weren't allowed to see their new born children in neo natal.

If u live in the tri state area you may have seen the news report the day after the birth. Multiple families had the same complaint, no access to the nursery, being told they couldn't leave the room or had to wait to leave the hospital, families were not allowed to visit and were turned away, certain cameras were blacked out, staff was reduced and unavailable when called by the parents. One father on several occasions was not aloud to see his twins in the NICU because of a security lock down. I hope the families get justice because they were treated badily. You should have seen their faces. Such a beautiful event for some of them became a nightmare.... I don't blame the Carters because the hospital should have had more control and provided coverage for all moms and babies...yuck!

GoodNews!    

I guess those parents and their "ambulance chasing lawyers" will not be getting paid after all! They all should be ashamed of themselves trying to make a quick dollar by telling lies about their hospital experience. "GREEDY OPPORTUNIST"!
