Beyonce and Jay-Z have been dragged into a bizarre death case after their former bodyguard was killed following a standoff with police called to a break-in at a home in Florida.

Norman Oosterbroek died last week after police were forced to Taser him and now it has emerged he allegedly hired a prostitute in Las Vegas while on duty working for the couple.

Oosterbroek, who also worked for Lady Gaga among others, was discovered by police, naked and ingesting what appeared to be narcotics, after breaking into a neighbor’s home in Miami and physically assaulting him.

After being Tasered by police, he was pronounced dead a short time later at Baptist Hospital.

Now New York Daily News editors have uncovered details about the 43-year-old’s sordid past, claiming he was fired by Beyonce and Jay Z after they discovered that he had solicited a prostitute while on duty for them in Las Vegas.
