Beyonce is NOT pregnant, despite a new tabloid cover story falsely claiming she’s expecting her second child with Jay Z. Gossip Cop can debunk the report.

The new issue of Life & Style hit newsstands on Wednesday announcing, “Beyonce Pregnancy Shocker!” The cover further touts, “As cheating charges fly, a ‘miracle baby’ saves her marriage to Jay Z.” A headline inside the magazine similarly says the couple has been “brought back together by baby No. 2.”

“Friends believe Beyonce is pregnant,” writes the outlet in the accompanying article. A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “She’s waiting to make an official announcement when she’s at three months, but Beyonce and Jay are overjoyed. The timing may be bittersweet, but if that keeps their marriage together, then so be it. Beyonce had been all set to file for divorce, but she called it off.”

Uh-huh. That’s a pretty convenient explanation for the tabloid’s March story, which falsely claimed Beyonce had announced her divorce at Kelly Rowland’s birthday party. Gossip Cop busted that allegation when it first ran, and Life & Style is now trying to cover up its lie with the excuse that Beyonce simply “called off” the divorce plans.

But the biggest lie of all here, of course, is that Beyonce is pregnant. She is not. The superstar is in the midst of an intense world tour that is taking her across the globe through early August. That is not something she’d be able to do if she were expecting. But gossip rags just twist the truth to sell copies, and that’s what’s going on here.
