Rapper Jay-Z has spoken out (sorta) about rumors of Beyonce's pregnancy...and he's denying it. Find out what he allegedly said inside and why we think the pregnancy rumors were started...
For the past few days, the world has been flushed with gossip about pop superstar Beyonce expecting her second child. The news went mainstream when E! News reported the pregnancy as the next best thing to FACT. Though E! news is considered a VERY reliable news outlets by EVERYONE, but according to Jay apparently, the news is NOT a fact.
Over the weekend, Ebro (the famed station manager of NYC's Hot 97) went on record saying that he received an email from Jay-Z denying the pregnancy. On air, he read Jay-Z's email saying, "It's not true. The news is worse than blogs." Of course, this could "potentially" have come from someone else, but because Jay-Z and Ebro have had a close relationship for over a decade...we'll take Ebro's word for it.
But here's the other issue...why would E! News report something which "might" not be true? We have our own suspicions that have been brought to our attention.
You'll recall that In Touch Weekly printed a potentially embarrassing cover story about Kanye West's sexuality a few days ago. The tabloid claimed he is in a gay relationship with Riccardo Ticsci...and we passed on posting the story since we've heard that rumor for years now with no credible confirmations. But with mainstream tabloids posting it now, this could possibly threaten that Kardashian throne (we all know the concoction of the Kardashians is E!'s biggest cash cow). So, we think it's odd that the rumor of Bey's second child came out RIGHT AFTER the In Touch article.
We've all seen how Olivia Pope mastered the art of "changing the conversation" on "Scandal". And you'll notice that we're not talking about Kanye's sexuality anymore. We might mention his SNL rant, but his relationship with Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci is old news. Why? Beyonce MIGHT BE PREGNANT!
But jeopardizing your credibility is a serious length to go to just to play Captain Save A Baby Mama.
As far as E! News goes....they have not printed a retraction and their "Beyonce's Pregnant" story is still on the front page of their website. But the story about Kanye's sexuality NEVER made the site.
