The speculation regarding whether Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting just won’t go away. On Friday, E! quoted multiple sources who confirmed the rumors that Bey was pregnant.

Over the weekend, she posted a note on Instagram that read, “I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me.” (The post was later taken down.) But if she’s indeed pregnant, she’s surely not showing yet. During a performance in Milan over the weekend, Bey showed off her flat tummy in a skintight purple jump suit.
