As if we all weren’t a bit irritated by Beyonce and that baby of “hers”, now this.
Seems several parents and family members of newborns at Lenox Hill Hospital were allegedly (?) treated horribly because they had the nerve to want to visit their babies and their mothers at the same time Beyonce and Jay-Z were scheduling and/or welcoming their daughter
by surrogate, Blue Ivy into the world. Naturally, the fine folks at Lenox Hill Hospital are denying all of this (as are Beyonce and Jay-Z–of course they are!), but $1.3 million might be a fine incentive for a self-imposed gag-order by the hospital, don’t you agree?
Neil Coulon, 38, of Brooklyn said the stress of his wife delivering two premature girls was tripled by Beyoncé’s bodyguards treating Lenox Hill Hospital like an exclusive nightclub.
Coulon griped that he’s been repeatedly barred from the sixth-floor neonatal intensive care unit, once for 20 minutes, by the superstar couple’s private security.
He said bodyguards wearing headsets even cleared the sixth floor waiting room, booting his relatives out.
“Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU (Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit) and it happened once on Friday — just because they wanted to use the hallway,” said Coulon, a contractor from Bedford-Stuyvesant.
“They should have been more strategic about it,” he said. “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.”
Lenox Hill staffers, speaking anonymously, told the Daily News that Beyoncé and Jay-Z paid $1.3 million to seal off and redecorate a wing at the upper East Side hospital, in a super-strict effort to protect their privacy.
Beyoncé gave birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, Saturday night on the sixth floor, near the NICU, a hospital staffer told The News.
“Some people were upset,” the staffer said. “I heard a gentleman say he couldn’t go upstairs to see his baby (Saturday).”
Un-effing-believeable, elitist entitlement and inconsiderate behavior beyond belief. Just wait for Beyonce looking perfectly fit and thin at the Grammy Awards next month; giggling and appearing oh, so humble by blabbing that “nursing” and “good genes” have allowed her to keep that figure. Uh-huh.
The Carters are pissing off a lot of folks right now. If you don’t believe me, go over to Twitter.
