As most of you know (unless you've been living under a rock) Beyonce's surrogate mother gave birth to the singer's first baby at an upper East side hospital in NY over the weekend.
The baby, named Blue Ivy (after Jay Z's album Blueprint and Beyonce's album, '4'), was born by c-section on Saturday afternoon at Lenox Hill hospital. A hospital source dismissed rumors that Beyonce and Jay rented an entire hospital floor for $1.3 million.
"We don't have entire floors sitting empty at Lenox Hill," scoffed the source. Our source told us Beyonce and Jay Z were charged the same amount for services as any other patient. If anything, they spent that amount just on security," she said.
Our source confirmed that the narcissistic couple actually shared the maternity ward with other expectant mothers.
According to the NY Daily News, Beyonce and her entourage occupied a vast area of the maternity wing, which caused problems for visitors attempting to see their newborns in the Neonatal ICU unit on the same floor.
Neil Coulon, 38, of Brooklyn (pictured at right) 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. Source
