Beyoncé's doesn't usually respond to rumors, but amid reports of a second pregnancy and an uncle sharing alleged family secrets, the 31-year-old reportedly took her grievances to Instagram and her husband Jay-Z has her back.
Posted to her account this weekend was a JPEG declaring, "I can't stop the rumors from starting and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me."
The fiery post was almost immediately deleted, but since the "low life people" weren't specified, many believe she was responding directly to the media. Last Friday (May 17), E! News exclusively reported that the Houston native is carrying her second child. The pregnancy chatter had been swirling for weeks already. Bey's cancellation of a Belgium show and sharing in an ABC interview that she "would like more children" added more fuel, along with a fan's blurry snapshot of the superstar bringing Blue Ivy Carter on stage and showing off what could be a small baby bump.
Today, Jay quieted the chatter, emailing Hot 97 program director Ebro Darden to deny the pregnancy. "It's not true," Hov wrote, reportedly responding to Darden's congratulatory message. "The news is worse than blogs."
