Beyonce is setting the record straight on a report speculating that she got a cosmetic procedure done while pregnant with twins.
On Thursday, the 35-year-old singer posted a close-up photo of her pout, leading a website to imply that she may have gotten lip injections. Beyonce’s spokesperson, Yvette Noel-Schure, slams the report in a statement to Gossip Cop.
"What do you know about the effects of pregnancy on a woman’s entire body? Please tell me," the statement reads, addressing the staffers at the website directly. "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?”
"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," the statement continues. "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."
The statement ends with some even harsher words. "You are the saddest individuals and picking on a pregnant lady is tantamount to possessing the coldest, despicable heart,” Noel-Schure says. “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.
