A man was allegedly stopped from visiting his premature babies by Beyonce and Jay-Z's bodyguards in Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, this weekend.

Beyonce had reportedly hired out and redecorated a wing at the hospital at the cost of $1.3 million (£843,000) in order to give birth to her first born child, Blue Ivy Carter, in peace, but her allegedly heavy-handed security guards apparently repeatedly stopped Neil Coulon from visiting his newborns in the neonatal intensive care unit.

NY Daily reports that Coulon's relatives were also thrown out of a waiting room by Beyonce's private security staff.

Coulon, whose wife delivered premature twins in the hospital last week, said of the security guards: "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... 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? All I want is an apology."
