Did Beyonce expose her fake baby bump during an Australian television interview? Check out the photo stills below and judge for yourself!


Rumors are swirling about Beyonce and her baby belly after a recent appearance on an Australian television show. A clip from Sunday Night HD appears to expose the singer's bump as fake when it crumples, deflates and sags akwardly as she sits down across from host Molly Meldrum to give an interview about her new album.

The photo stills suggesting Beyonce's fake baby bump (see below) are hard to explain by those insisting such reports are ludicrous. A rep for the singer told ABC News speculation Beyonce is using a prosthetic to fake her pregnancy is "stupid, ridiculous and false."

In a new interview with Harper's Bazaar Beyonce opened up about choosing to unveil her baby bump at the MTV VMA's. "I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself."

The mom-to-be, who has revealed she is due in February 2012, continues, "I was extremely nervous. It was the toughest red carpet I ever did... I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything."

Here's a clip of Beyonce's Australian interview. The bump mishap occurs at about the one minute mark.
