7 Celeb Pregnancy Rumors That Turned Out to Be Totally False
The only thing people like reading about more than celebrities breaking up, getting back together, and partying so hard that they end up flashing their labia, are celebrity pregnancy rumors.
Of course, more often than not these rumors turn out to be false, and yet, it seems like there’s a new one every month, just to keep things spicy.
Here’s 7 of our favorite insane celebrity pregnancy rumors in recent memory.
1. Kylie Jenner
Yesterday, a rumor began circulating that Kylie Jenner was pregnant with Tyga’s baby after she wore a dress that clung to her every curve.
While on the one hand, I can’t blame people for wanting to complicate the Kardashian/Jenner family tree even further, on the other hand, it’s a completely ridiculous.
“Omg. No I’m not pregnant. It’s been the same rumor for years & no baby…” Kylie remarked in a series of now-deleted tweets, adding that, “when I decide to go to that next stage in my life…I’ll be the first to let you know.”
2. Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston has been no stranger to pregnancy rumors over the years. Some might say getting on the cover of the tabloids for pregnancy speculation is her bread and butter. But apparently, she’s not that into it. Just this week she addressed how fed up she is with the gossip on The Huffington Post.
“For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up. I’m fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of ‘journalism,’ the ‘First Amendment’ and ‘celebrity news.”
This current round started after the paparazzi caught Jennifer Aniston on the beach with her husband and decided that since she didn’t look quite as toned as she in the past, she must be pregnant.
Aniston added that “the sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajilionth time…but who’s counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children.”
3. Lady Gaga
Last year, after Lady Gaga gained 25 pounds and started wearing pants and long-sleeve shirts instead of leotards and meat dresses, everybody jumped to the conclusion that she was pregnant with her then-boyfriend Taylor Kinney’s baby.
Only it turned out she wan’t pregnant, she was just doing what good Italian girls do best: eating a shitload of pasta and pizza.
“My father opened a restaurant. It’s so amazing,” Gaga told radio host Elvis Duran, “but I’m telling you I gain five pounds every time I go in there.”
As a fellow Italian girl, I feel your pain, Gaga. I really do.
In 2013, E! News was CONFIDENT that Beyoncé was pregnant with her second child.
The signs were everywhere.
First, she wore a BELTED dress to the Met Ball.
Then, she had to cancel a SINGLE SHOW on her tour because her doctors advised her “to rest as a result of dehydration and exhaustion,” which was such a plausible reason it obviously had to be an excuse.
Beyoncé herself refuted those claims by posting a picture of herself drinking a glass of red wine while sitting on Jay Z’s lap, and to this day, Blue Ivy does not have a brother or a sister to take adorable pictures with.
5. Lindsay Lohan
Right now, there’s a rumor going around that Lindsay Lohan is pregnant because she has the NERVE to wear a couple of maxi dresses while on vacation.
Forget the fact that she’s wearing bikinis with just as much frequency,, Lindsay is obviously just being coy with us.
Oh Lilo, you saucy minx.
Shortly after Rihanna got back together with Chris Brown in 2013, she got had to cancel a tour stop in Houston “as a result of illness.”
Then she canceled a show in Boston because as Live Nation so delicately put it, she had “contracted laryngitis and per doctor’s instruction is unable to perform this evening.”
Still, the pregnancy rumors continued for another month as Rihanna continued to have throat issues. Miraculously, as soon as those issues worked themselves off, the speculation over her being pregnant with Chris Brown’s baby also stopped.
7. Khloé Kardashian
Just like her younger sister Kylie, people LOVE to start rumors that Khloé Kardashian is pregnant with somebody’s baby.
In 2010, shortly after marrying Lamar Odom, people couldn’t help but notice Khloé had put on some extra weight, and jumped to the conclusion that she was preggo.
She wasn’t, she’d just “gained seven pounds of love weight.”
Similarly in 2014, MediaTakeOut was CONVINCED Khlo was pregnant for real this time, and that she was “pretty sure” the father was Lamar, although it could also have been her rumored-boyfriend Matt Kemp.
Again, Khloé wasn’t pregnant.
“I used to get offended,” Khloé told People, “like, ‘Do I look fat today?’ or ‘Why are they saying that?’ But they just say it.”
Sometimes Khlo$ can be so astute.
