While it seemed the entire world awaited the birth of Beyonce and Jay-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, not everyone was as excited, like those waiting at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
According to Neil Coulon, a 38-year-old man from Brooklyn, security present at Lenox Hill during Beyonce's stay prevented him from entering the neonatal intensive care unit where his two premature twin girls were staying.
They just used the hospital like it was their own and nobody else mattered, Coulon told the New York Daily News about the heightened security during baby Blue Ivy's birth.
They locked us into the NICU and would say, 'You can't come out to the hallway for the next 20 minutes.' When I finally was able to go back out, I went to the waiting room and they'd ushered my family downstairs!
The dramatic arrival of Blue Ivy Carter began on Friday night when 30-year-old Beyonce reportedly checked into Lenox Hill as Ingrid Jackson where she was directed to a sixth-floor suite with blacked out windows.
A Lenox Hill employee told the Daily News Beyonce brought her own hospital security and 42-year-old Jay-Z spent a boat load of money, reportedly an exaggerated $1.3 million, to rent out an entire floor on the fourth floor of the hospital.
According to the report from the Daily News, at least four security guards were present as of last night on the fourth floor where Beyonce was shuttled to after Blue Ivy, named after her dad's album Blueprint and the Roman numeral of her mother's favorite number four, was born. An employee said that the medical staff must shut down whenever there's activity coming or going from Beyonce's suite.
The staff was not the only party affected; New-dad Coulon said he was unable to visit his prematurely-born twin daughters at least four times since Friday and many of his relatives were turned away due to Beyonce's presence.
These are parents who are going through very stressful times, Coulon said of the other parents with children in the neonatal intensive care unit. To have that circus roll into town ... having to deal with all this drama because someone is a superstar isn't fair.
