Rihanna is NOT pregnant with Drake’s baby, despite a seemingly made-up report from one of the tabloids. Gossip Cop can correct the story.

A headline in this week’s National Enquirer exclaims, “Drake & RiRi Might Make Three!” The accompanying story begins, “Rihanna’s not flying solo after ditching cheater Drake! Recent pics show the 28-year-old Barbadian cradling her belly — which boasts a telltale bump — and insiders have snitched that Drake could be the baby’s daddy!”

The magazine touts a “bump alert,” pointing to a photo that shows nothing more than Rihanna wearing a baggy jacket. It’s also said “Rihanna has put on a brave face despite their split!” Naturally, the supermarket tabloid points to the songstress’ recent Instagram post, which read, “None of my exes are married or in happy relationships, so it’s safe to say that I wasn’t the problem.”

But, the outlet claims, “RiRi is secretly hurting, according to spies, and has admitted to pals that a child needs TWO parents.” Yet the National Enquirer doesn’t have any more details, so it resorts to regurgitating a 2012 quote in which Rihanna said just that. Noticeably missing from the story is key info like whether Drake knows about the pregnancy, and when Rihanna is due.

A skeptic might say that’s because the publication made up the pregnancy out of thin air. That, or these “spies” have a very fertile imagination. Rihanna isn’t pregnant, just like she wasn’t pregnant with Leonardo DiCaprio’s baby, as the National Enquirer falsely claimed earlier this year. Apparently the tabloid forgot all about that.
