Beyonce Knowles has seemingly refuted rumors that she is pregnant again, taking to her personal Tumblr page to post photos of herself with husband Jay-Z.
Knowles, the 31-year-old entertainer who is currently touring around the world, shared intimate images of herself with husband and music mogul Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter. In the pictures, the mother of one-year-old Blue Ivy Carter is spotted sipping red wine while her husband looks on playfully.
The image comes weeks after New York Post's Page Six reported that music industry sources had confirmed that Knowles is pregnant with her second child. However, Knowles personal photographs soon made headlines for serving as confirmation that she was not carrying her second child.
"Beyonce Ends Pregnancy Rumors, Shares Photo Drinking Wine," a Radar Online headline reads, while entertainment news outlets like Us Weekly echoed the same sentiments with the headline, "See it: Beyonce squashes pregnancy rumors with wine-drinking picture."
Carter,43, reportedly attempted to refute the pregnancy rumors himself in an email to New York City radio station Hot 97's program director Ebro Darden.
"It's not true," Jay-Z reportedly told Darden according to E! News. "The news is worse than blogs."
This is not the first time the rapper has refuted pregnancy rumors concerning his wife. Last year, Jay-Z responded to the rumor with some humor at an event premiering NBA 2K13 at his 40/40 nightclub.
"Tonight?" Jay-Z responded to the E! News reporter who asked if his wife was having another baby. "No."
When the reporter got more specific, the music mogul and Nets owner, born Shawn Carter, responded by saying, "Not in nine months. Absolutely not."
However, the E! News reporter made sure that the rapper was not playing coy and inquired about the other upcoming months that Knowles could deliver a child.
"No," Jay-Z said. "Not in one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight or nine months."
