A New York man who was trying to get into the neonatal intensive care room at Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital was denied access by Beyonce and Jay-Z’s security; and he wants an apology.
Beyonce gave birth over the weekend to her and Jay-Z’s first child, Blue Ivy Carter. While at the hospital other babies were born, though not to Jay-Z and his wife. Pre-mature twins were born to Neil Coulon and his wife and Neil is saying after his children were born, the stars security was causing chaos by restricting access to the wards and waiting rooms of the hospital.
Coulon alleges he was stopped more than once from seeing his babies in the NICU and he would like an apology from the mega couple. He told the New York Daily News, “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. They should have been more strategic about it. These are children with problems in intensive care and you’re just going to take over the hospital like you own it?”
“All I want is an apology … I know they spent $1.3 million and I’m just a contractor from Bed-Stuy, but the treatment we received was not OK … My wife is just terribly upset. She had a C-section. She gave birth to twins … Nobody needs this … This is the NICU. Nobody cares if you’re a celebrity. Nobody is star-gazing. They just want to see their children. To have that circus roll into town and ruin our parade was unpleasant.”
The hospital says they never heard of any sort of incident.
