NEW YORK, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- A new dad in New York says he wants an apology after Jay-Z and Beyonce's security prevented him from seeing his newborn twin girls.

Neil Coulon, 38, said security guards for Beyonce, who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivory Carter Saturday night at Lenox Hill Hospital, repeatedly prevented him from visiting his prematurely born daughters, who were delivered via Caesarean section and were being cared for in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit, the New York Post reported Monday.

"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 said.

"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."

Hospital workers said Beyonce and Jay-Z paid $1.3 million to seal off a wing at the hospital to preserve their privacy.

Lenox Hill spokeswoman Anne Silverman said she was unaware of the complaints.

"We take patient satisfaction very seriously," Silverman said. "This is the first time I'm hearing about it."
