Did BeyoncéPad Her Baby Bump to Make it More Dramatic?
It was a magical moment: Beyoncé unbuttoned her jacket and revealed her baby bump for the first time on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards. But was that baby bump a fake?
That's the extraordinary claim being made by the website mediatakeout.com.
The site claims Beyoncé wanted to make her baby bump look more dramatic, so she wore padding on the red carpet and on stage.
When Beyoncé performed less than two weeks before the VMAs, there was no sign of a big baby bump beneath her skimpy costume.
The latest photo of Beyoncé was taken while she was vacationing in Croatia. Some think her bump actually looks smaller than it did at the VMAs.
INSIDE EDITION showed the photos to gynecologist Dr. Alan Copperman.
"I see women all the time that look either further along one day than they did the next day and so you really can't look at a snapshot, especially from two different angles, from wearing two different types of clothing and guess how far along somebody is or is not," said Dr. Copperman.
The story is the buzz of the internet. The website twirlit.com called the bump "definitely suspicious."
But in an e-mail to INSIDE EDITION, Beyoncé's publicist dismisses the mediatakeout.com story as "stupidity."
Meanwhile, Beyoncé seems to be glowing with joy and pride, and no one can take that away from her.
Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z have not announced when their first baby is due.
