Rihanna was not pregnant in 2017, despite an inaccurate rumor published by Star in August. Several months have passed since the tabloid alleged she was purposely covering her belly in public, and there’s still no baby bump. Of course, that’s because Rihanna is not expecting a child with Hassan Jameel, as Gossip Cop correctly noted at the time.

In an article titled, “Rihanna: Eating For Two?” the tabloid speculated that the reason the singer wore a flowing dress to the July premiere of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was to hide her pregnant belly. The publication even quoted a so-called “source” who noted, “Rihanna has never been one to shy away from showing off her body. Plus, no one’s seen her touch a drop of booze in weeks.” What’s more, the magazine asserted that the 29-year-old singer “always wanted kids by 30” and has now “bagged herself a billionaire” with Jameel.

The fact that Rihanna’s been linked to Jameel and wore a baggy outfit to a premiere was not proof that she’s expecting. Still, Gossip Cop reached out the singer’s rep, who assured us Rihanna was “not pregnant.” And time has proven us right.

Interestingly, Star published another false report a month later that wrongly maintained Rihanna was cut out of the upcoming Ocean’s Eight because she can’t act, and oddly it didn’t mention a word about her supposedly being pregnant. In reality, the filmmakers haven’t “removed her” from the movie, as witnessed by Rihanna being in the film’s trailer, nor is she carrying Jameel’s baby. Almost hilariously, hours after the tabloid wrongly asserted that she was pregnant, photos emerged of Rihanna at the Crop Top festival in Barbados bearing a flat stomach.

The only thing fertile then were the imaginations of the writers at Star. Now that it’s clear that the tabloid birthed a fake pregnancy rumor, it’s time for the magazine to admit it was wrong. Perhaps the publication can even start off the New Year by writing an article that corrects the errors it made in 2017 about Rihanna.
