(NEW YORK) — The arrival of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s newborn daughter at a Manhattan hospital has inconvenienced a new dad who says the couple’s security team has prevented him from visiting his two prematurely-born twin girls.
Speaking with the New York Daily News, 38-year-old Neil Coulon of Brooklyn says the security team has repeatedly stopped him from visiting the neonatal intensive care unit at Lenox Hill Hospital.
A spokeswoman for the hospital told the Daily News she was unaware of any complaints regarding Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s security staff until the newspaper brought it to her attention.
The Daily News has reported that Bey and Jay paid the hospital 1.3 million dollars to seal off a wing of the hospital to assure their privacy. Their child, reportedly named Blue Ivy Carter, was born Saturday night.
