Beyonce Spent $5,000 On Krispy Kreme Doughnuts?!
Did Beyonce really spend $5,000 on Krispy Kreme donuts?! That’s the outrageous claim in one of this week’s tabloids. And since Gossip Cop investigates even the silliest and craziest of allegations, we looked into this sugary gossip concoction.
“Beyonce loves Krispy Kreme donuts so much she insists of having 12 dozen boxes of the belly-busting treats backstage every night,” writes the National Enquirer. A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “They’re her No. 1 favorite indulgence and her best energy boost when she’s going hardcore on stage.” The supermarket tabloid notes, though, that the superstar’s “massive tour doughnut demands add up to a whopping 2.5 million calories and $5,000.”
The outlet’s supposed source clarifies, “She loves Krispy Kremes — but don’t worry, she doesn’t eat them all and shares her 144 donuts with her crew.” The alleged tipster goes on, “Bey looks after her team — who work really hard for her. She’s not one to shy away from indulging either. The great thing about Bey is that she eats whatever she wants on tour, because she loses so much weight dancing and singing on stage.”
It’s even said the celebrity mom has “passed her love of fried, doughy delicacies on to Blue Ivy.” And the magazine went as far as accompanying its story with a photo from Beyonce’s 2008 “Good Morning America” appearance, when Robin Roberts surprised her with donuts in the form of a cake for her birthday (see above). It’s pretty telling, though, that the National Enquirer didn’t have a more recent photo of Beyonce with doughnuts for a story that’s all about her supposed obsession with Krispy Kreme.
And that’s because this tale isn’t true. Asked about the backstage doughnuts claim, a source close to Beyonce’s tour exclusively told Gossip Cop, “The absurdity here is profound.” Of course, this is the National Enquirer we’re talking about, the same publication that in May said Beyonce wouldn’t let her bodyguards shower after SoulCycle.
