Shortly after Beyoncé announced her pregnancy at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards last August, rumors of her using a fake baby bump and a surrogate ran rampant. Like most rumors involving the global superstar, the accusations have not died down, even after the birth of Blue Ivy Carter in January.
“That was crazy. It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy,” People’s “Most Beautiful Woman” told the magazine in an interview, saying: “Where did they come up with this?”
More fuel was added to the faux-bump rumors after video of her interview with the Australian talk show Sunday Night HD hit the web, where her stomach appeared to deflate as she sat down to speak with the host.
“Stupid, ridiculous and false,” her publicist said in a statement last October. “It was a fabric that folded – does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid,” she said.
While the allegations didn’t seem to bother Beyoncé, her mom Tina Knowles took it personally.
“I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months,” said the House of Dereon designer. “As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous.”
Even with Beyoncé finally speaking out about the fake bump and surrogate rumors, the conspiracy theorists won’t rest until they’re giving video proof that Blue Ivy resided in the Holy Uterus and can examine the afterbirth. Meanwhile, B is gearing up for her three-night stint at Revel, Atlantic City’s newest resort, during Memorial Day weekend.
Beyoncé and Blue Ivy were spotted headed into an office building today (March 27) in NYC. With Mama Tina by her side, Bey kept the heir to the Knowles-Carter empire warm in a fur baby sling. Wait until PETA gets wind of this.
The “Love On Top” singer is gearing up for her return to the stage over Memorial Day Weekend. Beyoncé will play three nights at the new $2.4 billion beachfront resort Revel in Atlantic City. Tickets for the shows go on sale Friday, April 6.
Check out Beyoncé and Blue Ivy as they hit the streets on Tuesday (March 13). As her single, “Love on Top,” spends a second week atop Billboard’s Hip-Hop/R&B Songs chart, the pop superstar rocked at pair of cat-faced flats, while Blue cooled out in silver mouse slippers during their stroll through their New York City neighborhood. Bey and Blue were spotted enjoying the early spring weather with Tina Knowles yesterday in the same area.
Taking advantage of the early spring weather, Beyoncé, Baby Blue & Mama Tina strolled through New York City today (March 12). Word is, Beyoncé will start filming the remake of A Star is Born, directed by Clint Eastwood, in June. Recent reports say Tom Cruise is “being courted” by Warner Bros., the studio behind the film, to take the male lead.
At just four-days old, Blue Ivy Carter has made Billboard chart history.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting their first child. Rumors of Beyoncé giving birth have run rampant throughout the week — even Good Morning America reported the alleged birth of the baby, whose name was reportedly Tiana May. The “Love On Top” singer put an end to the rumors when she was photographed leaving an office building with her mother Tina Knowles in Manhattan on Thursday night (January 5).
With the mythical baby bump covered by a blazer and scarf, Beyonce graciously allowed the paparazzi to get a shot of her. When her security tried to step in, she told them, “Leave them alone, it’s fine.”
