Singer Beyonce's representative fired back after a media outlet published rumors that she had lip injections based on a photo the star posted to Instagram.
The outlet, MediaTakeOut, accused the singer of getting lip injections while pregnant with twins -- prompting an angry statement to GossipCop from representative Yvette Noel-Schure. The speculation began after an Instagram photo showed Beyonce with noticeably plumper lips than she'd had before -- something that Noel-Schure insisted was simply due to her being pregnant.
Noel-Schure's statement was addressed to "MTO staffers" and was issued exclusively to GossipCop:
What do you know about the effects of pregnancy on a woman’s entire body? Please tell me. 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. 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. You are the saddest individuals and picking on a pregnant lady is tantamount to possessing the coldest, despicable heart. 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.
While some accused Noel-Schure of lying about Beyonce not getting lip injections, some backed her assertion and said they, too, experienced puffy lips and a fuller face during pregnancy.
One Daily Mail reader chimed in with an especially harsh comment:
Wow here we go again with the nasty comments. To any person with a brain it's pretty obvious that her lips are swollen because not 1 but 2 babies are growing inside her. Which part of that do you's not understand ? The funny thing is that the people being judgmental probably haven't even had 1 baby so are oblivious to the changes that happen in your body when your pregnant ! My lips ,ankles ,even my wrists all swelled up near the end of pregnancy. It's normal people ! Calm the f down.
"It's a common thing. Nobody would risk fillers in pregnancy. You guys are absolute trash for even suggesting she does. Kim Kardashians lips were the same when she was pregnant, so were a lot of other famous and non famous people. Seriously get a grip of yourselves. Not everyone has a hidden agenda you know," another added.
