Gossip Reports Tie Beyonce's Slain Bodyguard to Lewd Acts on Video
Norman Oosterbroek, who died last week in a bizarre Miami break-in, has been accused of hiring a prostitute in Las Vegas while on duty working for the pop superstar and her husband, Jay Z.
After a former body guard to Jay Z, Beyonce and Lady Gaga, among other stars, died in Miami last week, a series of gossip items have tied the late Norman Oosterbroek to multiple lewd acts involving video.
The Miami Herald reported last week that the 43-year-old Oosterbroek was discovered by Pinecrest police, naked and ingesting what appeared to be narcotics. According to the Herald's report, Oosterbroek had broken into a neighbor's home ad physically assaulted the neighbor. After being tasered by police, he was pronounced dead a short time later at Baptist Hospital. Oosterbroek, also known as the "Dutch Giant," is survived by his wife, April McDaniel, and two small children.

On Wednesday, a new report surfaced from New York Daily News -- appearing to confirm a blind item follow-up from Crazy Days and Nights -- alleging that the bodyguard had a salacious history with his former employers, Jay Z and Beyonce.
According to the NYDN report, Oosterbroek had been fired by the Carters after the power couple discovered that he had solicited a prostitute while on duty for them in Las Vegas. They also allegedly discovered video evidence depicting Oosterbroek using the family's passports in a lewd act.
The story was allegedly uncovered by a major magazine -- according to Crazy Days' blind item, Shape -- and the couple agreed to appear in a cover story in exchange for keeping the scandalous story out of the press.

Depressed after losing his job with the family, Oosterbroek reportedly found himself in and out of rehab toward the end of his life.
The 6-foot-5, 280-pound man is best remembered for breaking both legs of a Jay Z fan who rushed the stage at one of the rapper's shows in Washington, D.C., three years ago.
