Rihanna isn’t pregnant, despite a new report wrongly speculating that the singer might be expecting either Drake or Chris Brown‘s baby. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.
A recent paparazzi photo of Rihanna shows the singer looking slightly heavier than usual while wearing a baggy shirt and jeans, which prompted HollywoodLife to baselessly theorize that the singer might be “pregnant with her first child.” The repeatedly discredited site goes on to speculate about the possible identity of the father, guessing that her supposed baby belongs to either Drake or Brown, her former flames.
The website alleges “there was a period” when Rihanna “was going back and forth between” the two rappers, “so it’s hard to keep track” of who the dad might be. A supposed “source” tells the site that if Drake turns out to be the father, “it definitely complicates things because Rihanna can’t stand him.” But the outlet then goes on to surmise that if Brown impregnated the singer, the situation “would actually work out pretty well” because the exes “have maintained a great (and flirty) friendship over the years.” The site also offers an alternative to a pregnancy by rudely suggesting that Rihanna might just be “skipping the gym and giving into a few more cheat days than before.”
But Gossip Cop looked into the situation, and we’re exclusively assured by a reliable source close to Rihanna that she simply isn’t pregnant. The site’s conjecture about either Drake or Brown being the father of a nonexistent baby is entirely bogus. Of course, we’re not the least bit surprised by the inaccuracy of the webloid’s story.
Gossip Cop was exclusively told earlier this month that Rihanna is “tired” of HollywoodLife publishing fake news about her. A mutual pal of ours and the singer told us the site “doesn’t know anything” about her and continuously makes up phony stories about her personal life. Unfortunately, the webloid’s latest article is yet another example of that.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
