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. our editor recommends ‘Fifty Shades’ Movie: Universal Hires Bodyguards for Charlie Hunnam 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.

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.

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.
The rapper and producer will be a guest on the Magna Carter World Tour when it comes to Europe. The pair have become friends again after falling out at the end of The Blueprint 3 album. “A couple of songs were getting leaked that were his songs and that whole thing just ruined the process,” said Jay Z. “Everyone has to put egos aside for the sake of the project and he wasn’t accepting of that and that was almost like the last straw. “When he came back, I saw a new Timbaland. He has this maturity and this growth and I was like, ‘Oh OK, this is going to work out’,” he added. In addition to his own solo material, Timbaland is known for his collaborations with artists including Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott and Madonna. In 2011 he was named Billboard Magazine’s song writer of the decade and has won a number of Grammy awards. He is currently working on his next album, due out in 2014. Jay Z released Magna Carta Holy Grail, his 11th studio album, in July and it became his first number one album in the UK. The rapper teamed up with the electronics firm Samsung to offer one million people the album for free, with the electronics company paying 3.2m for the rights. The Magna Carter World Tour starts in Manchester on Thursday 3 October and will also visit Dublin and Birmingham. The pair will play four dates at London’s O2 Arena, ending on Monday 14 October.

In the wake of the fest, however, one band is speaking out about the way it was treated. Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme ripped into Jay Z during a Sunday radio interview with CBC Radio 2’s Strombo Show, calling Jay a “kook,” decrying extreme security practices and accusing the rapper of only giving the group champagne for the photo op. He has his security frisking the bands on the way in,” Homme said. “I just told them, ‘If you open up my bag, Im not playing, so I guess its up to you whether we are playing or not.’ The idea they frisked all my guys, means youre in some different place, no-one has ever done that [to me].” Intense security was hardly the only thing that rubbed Homme the wrong way. He also gave us some champagne and wanted us to take a photo with it, the 40-year-old singer said. And I thought thats not a gift that is a marketing tool. So I destroyed it. Because I thought it was rude overall. And you shouldnt frisk my guys, you should fuck off. At press time, Jay Z had yet to address Homme’s comments. The rocker’s remarks stand out because much of the entertainment community is wary of criticizing Jay, perhaps given his place in the industry’s food chain. When Jay Pharoah brought his Jay Z impression to ESPN’s ESPY awards , pans to the audience revealed plenty of famous faces that seemed determined not to be caught as laughing at the “Tom Ford” rapper. Jay most recently surfaced on a leaked version of Drake’s “Pound Cake/Paris Morton Music 2,” where he boasts about having an all-black Maybach with “insides whiter than Katy Perry’s faces.” Loading Slideshow Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z FILE – This Feb.
