So what if Janet Jackson has been staying out of the public eye for the most part since announcing her pregnancy? It doesn’t necessarily mean anything other than that she wants a little privacy while she enjoys baking that baby.

But of course, the fact that Jackson has only been spotted out in public once since her baby announcement is sparking some rumors, and a lot of them are just ridiculous.
A radio station in Houston seems to be the source of a lot of the crazier rumors. The station posted an article to its website saying an insider close to Jackson had said she hasn’t been seen publicly because she’s on bed rest. That part actually seems possible, if not even probable, since Jackson is nearly 50, much older than most pregnant women, and may be facing complications due to her age — the source says she’s “at risk for serious complications.”
But the other inside scoop from this source is that Jackson is avoiding being seen in public because bed rest has made her balloon up to 250 pounds.
“This pregnancy is doing a number on her,” the alleged insider said. “She didn’t want anyone to see that she was already getting huge.”
That one is a little harder to believe.
Regardless of the reason that Jackson is staying out of the spotlight, her brother, Tito Jackson, has dished to the press that no one in the family knows the gender of her baby; they’re all just hoping for a healthy newborn, he said.
