Carly Smithson Pregnant? Not So, Singer Says

by at . Comments

Last night's American Idol saw a farewell to Chikezie.

It also marked the end of what would have been a major bombshell, but now appears to be nothing more than standard American Idol gossip.

Contestant Carly Smithson, whose singing background has made her a frequent target of controversy as it is, was rumored to be pregnant.

Dressed in a somewhat frumpy get-up, Carly Smithson had a bathroom break before performing on American Idol Tuesday. Did she throw up?

One of this season's favorites from the get-go, a non-pregnant Carly Smithson performed strongly on American Idol, soaring safely into next week's final nine.

Pregnant celebrities are all the rage, so you knew this rumor had legs - but it turns out she just dresses poorly and had to use the bathroom like everybody else.

Carly Smithson used last night's results show to address rumors that she is pregnant, telling Ryan Seacrest: "Apparently I'm pregnant â€" but I'm not!"
