Rumours of Badu’s possible pregnancy began yesterday (May 31) with a number of different websites posting pictures of Badu wearing a crop top at a live show and pointing to what appeared to be a larger stomach.

However, the Dallas singer took to her twitter account and immediately put an end to the rumours, writing: “No, just fat.”

“What y’all think Fatbellybella MEAN? I just be hongry. I feel sick if I don’t eat…& eat,” she added.

The rumours also prompted singer and friend of Badu, Janelle Monae, to tweet: “I just heard you were preggo. Why wouldn’t you tell me Twinn?? Feeling hurt and lost”. The two have previously collaborated on ‘Q.U.E.E.N’, from Monae’s 2013 album, ‘The Electric Lady’.

Badu has three children and dated Outkat’s Andre 3000, with whom she had her eldest child, Seven, in 1997 just after the release of her debut album, ‘Baduizm’. She has also had a child with West Coast rapper D.O.C in 2004 and Jay Electronica in 2009.

Badu released her latest album, ‘New Amerykah Part Two’, in 2010.
