Father Says He Couldn’t See Own Baby in NICU Because of Jay-Z & Beyonce
Neil Coulon, a 38 year old father from Brooklyn, stood by his wife as she gave birth to premature twins. Well, he stood by as long as he was allowed to, at least. Coulon, you could say, is not all that excited about Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s baby. Maybe it’s because new parents delivering babies at the same hospital as Jayoncé were ushered out of the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) whenever the power couple wanted privacy. Maybe it’s because relatives of average folk were kicked out of waiting rooms by Jayoncé’s security guards and not allowed to see their new family members.
Coulon says that “they should have been more strategic about it. These are children with problems in intensive care and you’re just going to take over the hospital like you own it?” Reportedly, Jay-Z and Beyoncé paid $1.3 million to redecorate and seal-0ff a wing of the hospital. “All I want is an apology,” Coulon told the New York Daily News.
The hospital spokesperson said that she did not personally hear any complaints.
