Beyonce’s representative has hit back at claims the singer has had lip injections in a fiery statement.
The Formation star is currently pregnant with twins, and has been documenting her changing figure and appearance by sharing pictures on her website and social media.
The latest batch of pictures showed the 35-year-old wearing a variety of ensembles including a T-shirt which featured the slogan “Preggers” across her chest. The snap focuses solely on the top’s logo and Beyonce’s pout, which some fans noted looked more plump than usual.
The shots led to gossip website MediaTakeOut publishing a story alleging the singer had had plumping injections in her lips, to which Beyonce’s spokesperson Yvette Noel-Schure fired back with a strongly-worded statement.
“MTO staffers,” Yvette said in her statement to Gossip Cop. “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.”
Beyonce’s twins will be joining her family which includes five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. During her first pregnancy, Beyonce was also the subject of criticism surrounding her appearance, with some people claiming she wasn’t even pregnant, but Yvette continued to insist she wasn’t going to sit back and let similar reports emerge this time around.
“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,” Yvette added.
“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.”
