Breastfeeding Moms to Sue Hospital Over Beyonce Drama

While the world rejoiced over the arrival of Beyonce‘s baby girl Blue Ivy Carter, one group of new moms was not so elated about the event.

According to TMZ, the mothers were taking a breastfeeding class at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, but claim they were “neglected” by the staff during the celebrity lockdown. Now, the women are considering filing a lawsuit against the hospital.

The New York Daily News reports that Beyonce and Jay-Z dropped a cool $1.3 million to seal off and redecorate an entire sixth floor wing of the hospital near the NICU (Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit), complete with private security detail.

TMZ sources says several mothers have argued with Bey’s security guards, calling them “extremely rude.” Another source adds, “Someone at the hospital should be protecting us patients.”

The claims of the breastfeeding moms coincide with other complaints from the weekend, including one by new father Neil Coulon, who says the lockdown prevented him from seeing his wife and newborn premature twins.

“Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU and it happened once on Friday — just because they wanted to use the hallway,” Coulon told the Daily News, adding, “This is the NICU. Nobody cares if you’re a celebrity. Nobody is star-gazing. They just want to see their children.”
