She had her baby months ago, but Beyonce is now commenting on – and speaking out against – claims that she was faking her pregnancy for the first time.
“That was crazy,” the 30-year-old said of rumors that a surrogate was carrying her and Jay-Z’s first child together. “It wasn’t hurtful, and it was just crazy.”
“[I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?'”
Equally insane, she said, was the rumor surfacing after this Australian TV interview, in which Bey’s baby bump appeared to “deflate” when she sat down.
“It was a fabric that folded …does fabric not fold?,” Beyonce said of the prosthetic baby bump rumor tabloids soon ran with. “Oh my gosh, so stupid.”
She and Jay-Z weren’t the only ones miffed by it.
Younger sister Solange was vocal about the “ignorance” on Twitter, while tales of surrogacy also upset The “Love on Top” singer’s mom, Tina Knowles.
“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,” Tina said.
In spite of all the “stupid rumors,” Beyonce said “love and well wishes” from fans and the utter joy of welcoming Blue Ivy Carter helped her get over it.
