New York State Health Department Launches Probe Into Blue Ivy Carter’s Birth
Beyoncé and Jay-Z kept their daughter Blue’s birth under tight security, but now the state is looking into complaints that Lenox Hospital coddled the celebrity couple while keeping other new parents from visiting their newborns.
Days after baby Blue’s birth, the Health Department said that there had been at least two families that complained that the posh Lenox Hill Hospital gave out preferential treatment.
Though Beyoncé and her husband denied that they spent $1.3million to rent out an entire floor of the hospital, other parents said they were put on ‘lockdown’ so the celebrity couple could come and go as they pleased.
While the Health Department would not go into details, nor say who filed the complaints, parents who welcomed little ones at the hospital have been vocal about their treatment.
