Last week, rumors that pop star Beyoncé is pregnant began heating up. The week's rumors were capped off with what seemed to be a confirmation that the diva is expecting her second child. This week, however, Beyoncé's husband is once again tamping down the rumors, stating that the pregnancy reports are "not true."
A program director for the New York radio station Hot 97 this weekend reported that Jay-Z had personally told him that the rumors are not true. He quotes the would-be father as saying, "It's not true. The news is worse than blogs."
Neither Jay-Z nor Mrs. Carter herself have commented officially on the pregnancy rumors. Beyoncé is currently promoting her world tour, "The Mrs. Carter Show." The tour is currently in Europe, and will continue in North America throughout June and July.
Though the pregnancy rumors began over some blurry concert photos, the rumors ramped up last week when Beyoncé canceled a scheduled concert in Antwerp, Belgium. The official word was that doctors had sidelined the pop star for "dehydration and exhaustion," but fans eagerly postulated that the singer was having morning sickness.
