Beyonce says surrogacy rumors are 'just crazy'
"That was crazy. It wasn't hurtful, it was just crazy," the 30-year-old singer and actress tells People. "[I thought] 'Where did they come up with this?'"
One person who was hurt by the rumors, though, was Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles.
"I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months," Knowles says. "As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous."
After an Australian interview during which it appeared as though Beyonce's baby bump "deflated" as she sat down, rumors started swirling that her pregnant belly was a prosthetic she wore during public appearances -- rumors her publicist called "stupid, ridiculous and false."
