Star's spokesperson aims to quell baby bump conspiracy theory
Yvette Noel-Schure gave a statement to ABC News in response to the fast-spreading conspiracy theory, which claims that Beyonce‘s baby bump – unveiled with great fanfare at the VMA Awards in August – is a prosthetic, covering up for the “fact” that the singer has enlisted a surrogate mother to give birth to her first child.
The accusation first emerged in the wake of the VMAs, when celebrity blog Mediatakeout.com questioned Beyonce‘s pregnancy, quoting a ‘top media insider’ who said: “She wanted the announcement to be dramatic, so she made sure she had a baby bump.”
In the footage, as the singer sits down on a chair, her bump appears to collapse inward, reports gossip site TMZ (see picture, right).
Sales of Beyonce‘s fourth studio album ‘4’ have risen sharply since it was made public that the singer is expecting her first child. Her track ‘Crazy In Love’ was voted track of the decade by NME in November 2009.
