There was no way the birth of Jay-Z and Beyonce's daughter was going to happen without rumors and controversy. The web began buzzing with stories Beyonce and Jay-Z paid $1.3 million so Beyonce could give birth to her daughter Blue Ivy in a sealed off private floor ... this according to the hospital.
A rep for the hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital, released a statement denying the story.
"The suggestion that the couple paid $1.3 million to rent an entire maternity floor is simply not true," the statement says. "The family is housed in an executive suite at the hospital and is being billed the standard rate for those accommodations."
"The family does have its own security detail on site. However, the hospital has been and continues to be in control of managing all security at the facility," the statement continues. "We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days."
