My bump is NOT fake: Beyoncé dismisses rumours she padded her belly for TV interview

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER


Baby talk: Beyoncé gave an interview to Australia's Sunday Night show over the weekend

Beyoncé Knowles has vehemently denied suggestions that the star is wearing a fake baby bump.

A spokesperson for the singer told America's ABC News today that insinuations about the 30-year-old singer donning a prosthetic belly for an interview on Australian television, were 'stupid, ridiculous and false.'

The dramatic denial comes after footage of the interview, given to local TV personality Molly Meldrum on the Sunday Night program, became a YouTube sensation.

The fascination lies in the fact that at one point - around the 57 second mark - the cameras appear to show Beyoncé’s bump being squashed and moving as she sits down.

During the interview to promote her new album 4, she revealed she is due to give birth in February, adding that she feels 'grateful' and 'blessed' to be expecting her first child.

The footage promoted speculation on gossip websites that she is wearing a prosthetic bump.

U.S. blog Media Takeout was the first highlight the peculiar moment, citing it as 'evidence' she is exaggerating the look of her bump.

Other news outlets have since weighed in on the matter, with the The Washington Post calling it 'weird' while ABC News asks: 'Is Beyoncé's bump as big as she’d have us believe?'

And it has even triggered wild 'conspiracy theories' that she is faking her pregnancy while a surrogate mother carries her baby.

However, the claim carries little logic considering she was photographed wearing a bikini on September 6 while holidaying in Croatia.

'It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother,' she said.

'Now God has blessed us with the ultimate.'

And of course, she is seizing the opportunity to turn her pregnancy into a money spinner by launching her own maternity line.
