And the Beyonce baby bump watch saga continues…
The Internet was on fire last week with rumors that Beyonce and Jay-Z were expecting their second child. E! Online and The New York Post both quoted sources close to the couple saying Beyonce was pregnant, though Jay-Z and Beyonce’s camps would not confirm the news. Nonetheless, the media reported the news widely, substantiating pregnancy rumors that arose when Beyonce appeared to have a pouch in her costume, wore a belly-obscuring gown on the red carpet and cancelled one of her sold-out concerts.
Jay-Z and Beyonce have responded to the speculation, and they aren’t too pleased by the rumors. Beyonce posted the following message on her Instagram, before abruptly deleting it:
I can’t stop the rumors from starting, and I can’t really change people’s minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me.
Hot 97 programming director, Ebro, got word from Jay-Z that the rumors aren’t true. Jay-Z also made sure to chide news outlets and blogs in his comment. According to Necole Bitchie:
Well, I emailed Jay-Z [to congratulate him] and then he hit me back and said ‘It’s not true.’ Like literally, it had to be Saturday afternoon, so it had been a whole 24 hours of it’s true.
Cipha Sounds: What was his direct qoute?
‘It’s not true, the news is worse than blogs,’ so no baby yet.
That’s what the email account said unless he’s been cat fishing me the whole time [laughs] for the last five years.
It’s hard to tell who is lying here, but one thing is true: if Beyonce is really pregnant, the couple will announce it in their own special way when they believe the time is right.
