It’s not often that I feel sorry for Beyoncé but this story is so crazy that on this occasion, my heart goes out to the poor woman.
Beyoncé and Jay Z’s late bodyguard (pictured above- he was tasered to death by police whilst breaking into a house naked in Miami earlier this month) Norman Oosterbroek got wrecked on a pile of drugs and booze with a prostitute whilst on duty for the couple in Las Vegas last year.
And, at some point during the bender, the hooker filmed him performing “a lewd sex act” with Beyoncé and Blue Ivy’s passports.
In other words, he was cracking one off over photographs of the boss and her child while the prostitute yelled encouragement and videoed it.
Shudder. I’ll pause while you wince, shake your head, blink, rub your eyes and go WTF?
Anyway, Beyoncé and Jay Z found out after the prostitute went to The National Enquirer with the video, fired Norman and paid the prostitute a lot of money to go away:
“Beyoncé and Jay Z were furious when they found out,” a source tells the New York Daily News. “They trusted Norman with their lives and then he went and did some pretty freaky things, and on video with a hooker. They were outraged.”
The source adds: “They really thought Norman was now a danger to Blue Ivy.”
I would be tempted to chop his bollocks off if he was working for me and did something like that with photographs of my kid – twisted bastard.
Shortly after The National Enquirer got hold of photos and video of the incident and threatened to run them in the mag, a horrified Beyoncé’s people cut a deal with the magazine’s parent company – American Media Inc. – that if they buried the story she’d then do a cover story and interview for another publication of theirs, Shape magazine.
Which she did. This is a magazine that Beyowulf would never normally touch with a bargepole so everyone was happy and that was that.
Or so they thought.
The story started floating around the internet as a blind last year and since Oosterbroek’s death during a drug-frenzied burglary in Florida on September 2nd, I’m guessing that the New York Daily News and then Gawker figured they were safe from lawsuits from him so they’ve gone ahead and run the story.
I’d make some joke here about the fact that Norman went on to work for Lady Gaga and she’d probably encourage him to have a tommy tank over photographs of her but it feels sort of inappropriate.
