As the internet continues to go apeshit over the birth of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby girl Blue Ivy Carter, everyone isn’t so happy.

Apparently, the famous couple’s security team has been keeping the parents of the other newborns in the NICU (Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit) at New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital away from their babies.

Neil Coulon, a Brooklyn man, complained to the New York Daily News about being being barred from the sixth floor unit by Bey and Jay’s security team, keeping him away from his premature twins.

“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,” he told the paper.

“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.”

According to staffers, Bey and Jay paid $1.3 million to secure a ultra-private spot in the hospital and keep the press out, but what about the other parents?

One staffer told the NY Daily News“Some people were upset. I heard a gentleman say he couldn’t go upstairs to see his baby (Saturday).”

A hospital spokesperson said they “take patient satisfaction very seriously,” but hadn’t heard about the other parents’ gripes.

But Mr. Coulon is singing a different tune. Although he understands Bey and Jay’s need for tight security, he doesn’t appreciate the stress this has caused his wife, who gave birth to premature twins.

“I know they spent $1.3 million and I’m just a contractor from Bed-Stuy, but the treatment we received was not okay,” Coulon said. “My wife is just terribly upset. She had a C-section. She gave birth to twins. She is sore. 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.”

When a celebrity has a baby, where do you draw the line between wanting to protect their privacy and infringing on other people’s lives?

    A statement has already being released by the hospital denying the rumours. I wonder why clutch hasn’t posted it by now. The hospital also stated that the Carters didn’t pay a million dollars to them. People are always quick to jump into conclusions. Its all on TMZ and E!

    We really live in a sad world people ran with the story about how they paid 1.3 million dollars for hospital stay and all the other hoopla surrounding their hospital stay…but people overlook the fact that the hospital issued a statement denying all of those rumors. People rather go feed on the hate then see things for how they are…how can so much hate be directed at a innocent life…When you dont personally know someone and you are going off what the media feeds you how can you hate with such a strong vengence???? I may not have what jays and bey have but I could never hate them for that i am fulfilled with my own blessings…thats their blessings not some payment from the devil as people has suggested…when people stoop so low as to put up a sign outside of a church stating beyonce had baby the devil is on earth…cruelty has sunken to a low level…please keep in mind that at the end of the day Blue Ivy is a precious innocent victim in all of this hate.
