The Grammys was a star-studded event and while every performance stole the hearts of people, there was one in particular that stood out. During the event, Rihanna performed alongside DJ Khaled and Bryson Tiller at Madison Square Garden.
Whilst it can’t be disputed that the Barbados queen put up a great performance, eagle eyes fans were quick to notice how the camera angles and the way the singer was dressed hinted that there is something fishy. It is then that many of them jumped to conclusions that there was a possibility that Rihanna was pregnant with her first child. “I’m pretty sure Rihanna’s pregnant,” one fan tweeted.
“Am I the only one the feels like Rihanna is pregnant? No close-ups, angles on the camera, something is up,” another wrote. At the same time, people were quick to notice how the Umbrella singer was also glowing, something which people usually associate with pregnancy. “Compelled to think Rihanna could possibly be pregnant. She thickened up..hitting them moves delicately…8’ just saying,” another fan wrote.
At the same time, there were a few fans who tried to break down every bit of evidence they could spot during her performance in order to get to the bottom of the mystery if Rihanna was really pregnant or not. One fan observed that the position of the dancers to the dress Rihanna wore said a lot about it.
“THIS IS A SERIOUS QUESTION – is Rihanna pregnant? They’re hiding her behind back up dancers in this performance. She put a little weight on and her outfits are all hiding her midsection,” wrote one fan. However, this is not the first time that rumors about Rihanna being pregnant have circulated. Last year, back in May many fans had speculated that the singer was hiding her pregnancy after she was seen wearing baggy clothes.
Meanwhile, there were also photos of Rihanna in which she was seen hiding her stomach using a bag and baggy clothes. “She looking really pregnant,” one follower commented while suggesting that her face was “filling out”. On the other hand, there were some who were trying to speculate that if Rihanna was pregnant, who was the father of the child.
But these rumors quickly died out after many fans of Rihanna came to her rescue suggesting that the singer was being a victim of body shaming and that it wasn’t right. One person suggested that maybe Rihanna had stopped caring about her “superficial celebrity appearance” and focusing more on what she loves.
Even though it is not certain if these rumors are true or not, according to Hollywoodlife, Chris Brown is feeling hurt after hearing about Rihanna’s pregnancy. “Chris [Brown] is angry, hurt and kind of heartbroken after hearing Rihanna was looking pregnant at the Grammys. They were each other’s first real love and he still misses her,” a source close to the singer told the magazine.
“Chris always had high hopes for their future together and even though there are only rumors that she could be pregnant with some other guy’s baby, he is still pretty upset and sad to hear about it. He feels like that should be his baby. He always hoped it would be him having a family with Rihanna and he regrets how things ended between them.” Rihanna is yet to comment on this.
