The Rumor: That Beyoncé wasn't really pregnant with her and Jay-Z's first child and that she used a surrogate mother to carry the baby
When It Popped Up: October 2011
Why It Was Probably Bogus: During her pregnancy, Bey was photographed wearing a bikini that showed off her baby bump. We're not buying into the belief that she wasn't pregnant. Do you know how many people would have to keep up that farce? Chances are the surrogate's identity would have leaked to TMZ at some point via close "sources."
