Now we know one of the main factors that played into Beyoncé's decision not to fly to Cardiff, Walles, to be present at the October 8 Michael Jackson Tribute Concert — her pregnancy.


As previously reported, Bey is the most recent addition to the tribute concert for Jackson, organized by the late pop icon's mother Katherine Jackson. However, the soon-to-be mom is expected to perform one of her favorite Jackson 5 songs via satellite, after originally citing scheduling issues.

According to TMZ, rumor has it that Bey is somewhere around four months pregnant, which means that, by the time of the concert, she'll be around five months. Still, the show will go on, as reps for the concert promoters have confirmed, saying that the singer's "pregnancy will not affect her performance.

The one-time event will be broadcast live in 30 countries.
