Last week, Rihanna threw her 5th annual Diamond Ball in NYC — and there was one photo and one interview that knocked people's socks off.
The Barbadian singer hosted the event donning a fitted black dress, displaying her body in full detail. A photo from a specific angle captured her protrusive tummy, catching people's attention. And that's when the pregnancy rumors began. Why couldn't she just have been bloated? Because people just love to speculate about the lives of others for the fun of it.
But, it was more than just the photo. In one video, the singer talks about how she came from a black woman who came from a black woman and how she's going to give birth to a black woman, too. But, does that mean she's pregnant? Certainly not.
TMZ was quick to shut those rumors down, citing "sources with direct knowledge" who confirmed the artist is not pregnant.
People not only began spreading rumors that Riri is pregnant but also began guessing who the father of the unborn (and not yet existent) child is. The obvious answer would be her Saudi boyfriend Hassan Jameel, who she's been seriously dating for quite some time now.
The 31-year-old singer has been incredibly private about her romantic life. In a rare interview earlier this year with Ocean's 8 co-star Sarah Paulson, Rihanna was asked whether she will tie the knot with Jameel or not. When asked if she's in love with Jameel, she did not shy away from answering the intimate question with full-on confidence.
"Of course I am," she said.
But, it didn't end there because Paulson bombarded Riri with yet another personal question.
"Are you going to get married?" Paulson asked. The Barbadian singer paused before leaving the entire discussion up to fate and destiny.
"Only God knows that, girl. We plan and God laughs, right?" Rihanna replied. Well, it seems the couple is deeply in love, and marriage may just be a possibility for the two. As for creating a child together, it seems Riri wants a child. But, is she pregnant with Jameel's? According to TMZ, no she is not.
