POP star sensation Beyonce and her international entrepreneur husband, Jay-Z, have got the Twitterati in full flow over the speculation of their new-born baby.
It was announced recently that mother and baby, named Blue Ivy Carter, are able to go home.
But that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill from pumping.
One conspiracy theory is the recent photo published of the singer, holding Blue Ivy, is a fake and some allegations have accused them of hiring a surrogate mother.
Twitter is rife with gossip over the authenticity of the photo: ” @Pierre_Gerard: Beyonce tried to fake her pregnancy bulge & stomach folded up. Then she has a baby after 4 months of “pregnancy” -____- WE DONT BELIEVE YOU”, was one tweet.
Beyonce, whose current album ‘4’ sits at number 6 in the UK album charts and rapper and producer Jay-Z, originally kept the pregnancy under close wraps, sending the gossip circuit wild with allegations she was wearing a fake bump, which her representatives quickly slammed as “ridiculous”.
The couple released a statement gushing how happy they were over the birth of their 7lb bundle, born on 7 January.
“Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful; we are in heaven,” they said.
Blue Ivy is said to have been spoiled rotten with around £1m worth of gifts waiting for her when she arrives home.
These include a handmade, golden rocking horse, from Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka costing around £390,000, according to the New York Post.
Other gifts include a crib, estimated to be £12,000 and her high chair has set the pair back around £10,000, which is covered in Swarovski crystals.
Pop singer and close personal friend to Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, decided not to reach quite so deep in her pocket and has reportedly bought the wee one a green onesie from kids’ boutique, Lucky Wang, which sports an image of famous Reggae singer, Bob Marley, on the front.
Rapper 50 Cent however, has not been so kind.
Being no stranger to offensive tweeting, his reaction to the birth of his rival’s daughter was to post a picture of a baby with Jay-Z’s head superimposed.
He added the comment: “Yal play to much congratulations to JAYZ and Beyonce BABY #BlueIvyCarter IS GEORGOUS”(SIC).
Followers of the artist commented with much amusement.
He later tweeted: “You bull s******g they will pay a million dollars for a picture of that baby lol trust me.”
In March 2011, 50 Cent was criticised after poking fun at the devastating tsunami in Japan via his Twitter page.
