Stomach Folding Video

Ignites Pregnancy Controversy

10/11/2011 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


We know it sounds ridiculous ... but the Internet is buzzing with rumors that Beyonce is NOT really pregnant and she's wearing a fake stomach in an elaborate cover-up. Now, a controversial new video is fueling the fire.

Beyonce appeared on an Australian TV show this weekend called "Sunday Night" -- wearing a tight red dress that accentuated her baby bump.

But when B sits down in her chair, her bump appears to collapse inward, leading many to believe it's not B's real bump after all ... but a prosthetic device intended to deceive.

So why would B fake preggo? There are rumors that she has hired a surrogate mother to carry the kid, so she won't have to put her body through the strains of pregnancy.

But color us skeptical -- because last month, Bey bared all during a vacation in Croatia with Jay-Z ... revealing what looks like a totally legit baby bump.

1011_beyonce_sipa2We called B's camp for comment -- but we haven't heard back yet.

So, we gotta ask ...

Okay geniuses, see...when a woman bends over very often the front of her dress droops (unless it is obscenely tight), whether she's fat or skinny or pregnant or not because the material falls straight down (look up gravity on wikipedia) and her body, whatever shape it is, is going back away from it at an angle behind the fabric. Fascinating stuff no?

I believe she is pregnant, its just the dress. I dont think she would get a surrogate or fake pregnancy for a body. So maybe she will have to put on a bikini and expose herself and let the world know this is my child in me....

She's doing it for publicity because her album was a dissappointment.

OK, if it's not fake then WHY in the bikini pic does she have some type of strap or band around her abdomen just above the top of the bikini bottom & why is there a seam straight down her belly goin INTO & continuing in that strap\band ? enlarge the photo 300X, you'll see it..........

Its the dress, look it creases just like that as shes walking. Plus, ladies, how many times have you got a bubble o air that makes your dress "look" funny!?! People just cant be happy for others these days

She's probably pregnant, but not as far along as she would like to be. During the first trimester you mainly just look bloated and like you've eaten too much. Knowing how vain Beyonce is, she's probably trying to skip the 'I've had a big meal' stage and jump straight to the adorable baby bump that starts happening from 5+ plus. I wouldn't put it past this woman to wear a prosthetic bump to enhance the size of her small bump to garner as much attention as possible. All the paparazzi candid shots show her with a much smaller bump. It all comes down to her vanity. I would feel sorry for the kid, but he/she is going to be born richer than I will ever be.

I think she is pregnant no doubt but if this true she should feel terrible, there's no need for it. She is grown women you really have to think about women who can't have kids or women you lost their kids. This is not funny or joke to me even though they have said she been pregnant millions of times. She doesnt have to prove to anybody. But idk what to think of her now she I was her biggest fans :(

I'm not sure why she's so big after just one month of the photo. But she does have the pregnancy line that's going down her stomach. She looks pregnant.

I can see the reasoning for it, if it is a fakie and with that bump in the pic at the beach. Paps are going to be attacking for a pic of this kid once it's born, but I still believe she is by the pic at the beach...that's a legit bump.

This is just the fabric of her dress not her bump folding...Maternity clothes are made looser over the bump area and usually fitted everywhere else, so her bump isnt big enough yet to fill the extra material and thats why it looks the way it does...

She is using a surrogate but wants the world to think it is really her baby. Follow the trail TMZ and you will find the surrogate!!!

She doesn't look pregnant in that bathing suit, just fat. People do so many crazy things, I wouldn't be surprised if it's a fake baby!
