We awoke this morning to the news that Jay-Z and Beyoncé, were expecting a baby. The source, MediaTakeout.com, divulged the news saying they heard it from a “ROCK SOLID” source (so, Ashford and Simpson?) and that Beyoncé was “doing fine and resting for now” which sounds more like a report you’d give after someone has actually given birth, but whatever.
It seemed weird that such an under-the-radar site was confirming such big news, but several news outlets picked up on the story which made the story more believable. Just a few hours later though, a publicist for Beyoncé’s record company, Sony, has told Rolling Stone that the report is untrue. Earlier in the year, the singer said that she was planning to take some time off after a very busy 2009, which led to speculation that she wanted to start a family, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer. Maybe she’s just trying to deflect attention away from her father, who can’t keep his super-sperm in check. [Photo: Getty Images]
