The juicier the rumour, the more we want it to be true — especially if it involves Beyoncé and her plumped-up lips. The lip injection rumours have been going on for weeks, thanks to some selfies the singer posted on Instagram that showed her with distinctly fuller lips. It’s left many of her fans and admirers wondering if Bey has gone full Kylie. Or perhaps their Queen B actually did get stung by a bee.
But her rep, Yvette Noel-Schure is shutting that all down. She released a statement dashing the lip rumours, not to mention condemning tabloid MediaTakeOut for their poor journalism skills and lack of class.
“What do you know about the effects of pregnancy on a woman’s entire body? Please tell me,” read the statement to Gossip Cop. “Did you know that in addition to weight gain there is often a dramatic change in the blood flow in the system and increased fluid causing swelling? Do you know that often women’s gums get swollen? Do you know that it sometimes affects our speech, our ability to chew intently and a host of other things?”
It continues, “But the sacrifice to our faces, our feet and our entire bodies is something we welcome because we bring beautiful humans into the world who will one day combat your hate and negativity. I stood silent during Beyonce’s first pregnancy when you thought it was okay to bully her like the cowards you are, when you accused her of never being pregnant, but I simply cannot this time.”
Then Noel-Schure’s statement goes on to single out MediaTakeOut. “You need to find something else to do with your time and maybe stop by a store that has happiness on sale because you need to buy some.”
So, there you have it. Also, daaaaaaaaaaayum. They’ve been told, as have all the doubters who thought Bey had something done. Pregnancy lips are a real thing. Just ask Kim Kardashian who, like Bey, proudly showed off her swollen kisser when she was pregnant with Saint.
That being said, the swelling does go away. In fact, Bey’s most recent Instagram posts show her lips look a little less puffy and more like her usual self. Whatever the case, she’s glowing either way — extra pout or without.
