Beyonce 32? It's Just a Bad Dream, Girl

12/8/2006 7:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Internet has been ringing with the alarming news that Beyonce Knowles is 32 years old, and not, as she's claimed all along, 25. TMZ did a little digging -- and we've got the definitive answer.

Celeb gossip site MediaTakeOut.com claimed earlier this week to have a document from the Texas Department of Health proving that the pop princess was born September 4, 1974, making her 32. But an authoritative source in Texas tells TMZ that the authenticity of that document could not be confirmed, that the document wasn't an official birth record, and that 1974 is definitely not Beyonce's b-day.

We also put in a call to the High School of the Visual and Performing Arts in Houston, which Beyonce attended, and they told us that she was a student from 1997-2000. If she was born in 1974, that would mean she attended high school from age 23 on. Beyonce might be gullible (at least enough to be ambushed by PETA), but high school at 23? We don't think so.

Beyonce's rep said she had "no idea" how the faux-age rumor began or why it was disseminated. Mediatakeout.com says that they have "thoroughly inspected" the posted document and that it looks "very real."

My friend and I debate Beyonce's "real"age all the time, we believed her to be near thirty, we figured 27 or 28... I do not believe she is 32... She is definately NOT the age better yet as young as has she been reported to be.

There is dated footage of her as child from different children's pageants and talent shows. After seeing her body as an adult, are we supposed to believe she was just a late bloomer and was actually 17 but saying she was 9 or 10. You can't hold back puberty like that!

In 1995 Beyonce was supposed to be 16/17 years old, so if that is to be believed she is around 26/27 years of age... Not just turning 25 like I keep hearing she is.. There's not that much of an age difference but to me it seems that about 2 years has been knocked off of her age... Just my opinion...

LOL - you can look her up on publicdata.com - she was born on Sept. 4, 1981 which makes her 25. It's not hard to find out!

what about kelly rowland? she looks like she's 15, and they are about the same age in reality, they grew up together. who cares? 25 or 32, she still looks good and what's the difference between the 2 ages anyway? 7 years? it's not like she's 50 and pretending to be 30.
