It’s so hard to find good help these days! Beyoncé and Jay-Z had to fire former bodyguard Norman Oosterbroek last year, after he hired a sex worker while traveling with the family in Las Vegas and filmed himself “using the family’s passports in a lewd act.”
According to the New York Daily News, the couple paid off “a major print publication” so they would not publish a story about the gross incident, which also must have been when they learned about it in the first place. Oosterbroek had served as a bodyguard for Beyoncé, Jay-Z and their daughter Blue Ivy after working with other celebrities like Rihanna and Nelson Mandela. The couple trusted him and were “furious” by his perverse behavior. Of course, they were also concerned his irresponsible behavior could put their child at risk. So they fired him at some point in the past year, effectively making him unemployable as a bodyguard throughout the celebrity universe.
Oosterbroek, who had struggled with substance abuse in the past, fell into a depression after getting canned by Jayoncé. He was killed on September 2 in Florida after allegedly imbibing drugs and getting Tasered when he broke into a neighbor’s home while naked.
