Rap mogul Jay-Z says recent news reports claiming his wife Beyoncé is pregnant are inaccurate.
Ebro Darden, the program director for New York radio station Hot 97, said on the radio show this week that he emailed the 43-year-old rap mogul to congratulate him but Jay-Z replied, “It not true; the news is worse than blogs.”
Darden went on to assert that the email was certainly from Jay-Z. “That’s what the email account said -- unless he’s been catfishing me the whole time, for the last five years,” he continued. After rumors circulated this month that Beyoncé is pregnant, sources confirmed to E! News May 17 that the 31-year-old superstar is expecting baby No. 2.
Beyoncé was first rumored to be pregnant just weeks ago, when she brought 18-month-old daughter Blue Ivy on stage during her world tour. When the singer bent over to grab her baby's hand, a small bump was visible beneath her skin-tight bodysuit. Then at the Met Gala a few days later in New York, the megastar stunned in a Givenchy gown, but her midsection was hidden under a large black belt. Most recently, Beyonce cancelled a tour date in Belgium, and her publicist stated doctors advised her to rest due to exhaustion and dehydration.
But according to Jay-Z, the pregnancy reports are inaccurate.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé is currently on her world tour, "The Mrs. Carter Show," which is set to return to Brooklyn, Jay-Z's hometown, in August. The superstar has continued to wear her bodyhugging outfits during her tour, and there has no been no visible bump.
